12 brownies


  • 2 cups all-purpose rice flour

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • ¾ cup sweetened flaked coconut

  • ¼ cup coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Mix together rice flour, white sugar, cocoa powder, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl; add coconut milk, applesauce, flaked coconut, and coconut oil. Blend mixture until thickened; pour into the prepared baking dish.
