Chewy Gluten Free Brownie Recipe

This is my first stab at creating a gluten free brownie recipe. It turned out very chewy, just what I had in mind. They are not cake-like at all. I used potato starch in this one. Next time I may try using almond flour just because I love the taste of it, but this time I just added some chopped nuts. You can use your favorite nuts. I not only enjoyed the brownies, but I really liked the fact that there was not a lot of mess to clean up as I went along.

A chewy gluten free brownie recipe and when your road seems rocky, add marshmallows!


  • 3/4 cup gluten free chocolate, melted (I used milk chocolate morsels.)
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter (or dairy-free buttery spread - some contain soy or corn)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1 cup gluten free semi chocolate chips (or dark chocolate)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly oil a 9” x 9” non-stick baking pan.
  3. Melt 3/4 cup chocolate morsels and butter in a medium sized sauce pan on medium-low heat.
  4. Add brown sugar and stir until melted.
  5. Beat eggs; add to mixture; and stir until well incorporated.
  6. Remove from heat; add potato starch; and stir.
  7. Stir in walnuts and pecans.
  8. Cool the brownies in the refrigerator for about 5 or 10 minutes so that the next batch of chocolate chips do melt right away. Do not allow the mixture to harden.
  9. Stir in vanilla and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels.
  10. Pour into baking pan.
  11. Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out slightly sticky.
  12. Allow the brownies to cool before cutting.
  13. You may serve the brownies as is or with whipped cream.


I made this recipe with 1-1/4 cups brown sugar and I did not like the taste of the brown sugar. I made it again with white sugar and it came out great! (brown sugar pictured above)
