I'm a nursing mom with a baby sensitive to wheat and dairy. These help satisfy my sweet tooth without irritating her. Enjoy! Try adding walnuts for more flavor.

I tried this recipe when I was in a pinch and I forgot I was supposed to bring brownies to the local soup kitchen! We eat gluten free at home and I don't keep flour in the house so I was thankful to find this recipe. I also didn't have brown sugar so I used agave nectar as a substitute. I will say that I didn't actually try these but they looked fantastic and the pan was gone immediately and I didn't see a single person bring theirs back uneaten (which actually happens fairly frequently with our guests there)! The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is that I didn't actually taste them.:) Read More

Thank you for sharing this recipe! I am facing the same challenge with my little son who is allergic to dairy eggs and wheat. I have tried a few cake mixes for vegan gluten free brownies but they were not really to my satisfaction. These brownies are so easy and quick to make and very tasty. I might try adding some real chocolate next time as the very dark chocolate usually is vegan too. Will definitely make these over and over again! Read More

I made these today and they were AMZING! I was babysitting for a some gluten free and dairy free kids so I'm not used to that kind of food but when we made this recipe it turned out more wonderful than I'd ever expected gluten and dairy free to be! Definitely recommend especially with chocolate chips! Read More

I made this recipe using stevia for the white sugar and agave syrup for the brown sugar and sold them at the church bake sale. They were a huge hit!!! Read More

This is a great tasting gluten free dairy free recipe. The brownies come out cake-like and light. I think this recipe could qualify as a dense cake recipe though. Read More

First time for me making GF brownies! This was a pretty good recipe for brownies that are gluten free dairy free and egg free! Bake time was perfect in this recipe too. End result was a tad dry but still moist yet not a fudge brownie. I used superfine white rice flour as that's what I had on hand and it worked well (couldn't find All Purpose Rice Flour at the store). I used unsweetened coconut flakes and when tasting the batter was surprised I didn't notice the coconut flavor too much. When finished baking I didn't care for the coconut as it seemed to make the dryness more noticeable. Topped the brownies with Fresh Raspberry Sauce (from this site). Overall good recipe for a brownie and I'd like to try again without the coconut flakes and a little more applesauce perhaps. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

I made this just as the recipe called for and the brownies are great! They didn't even stick to the pan so I was able to flip them right out. Cut them with a plastic knife and they won't stick to the knife. I drizzled a little melted dairy free chocolate too. Read More

These coconut brownies were amazing. I am a teen with celiac disease as well as an egg allergy and a dairy sensitivity. These brownies were simply delicious. I couldn't ask for a better brownie recipe. I will definitely make these brownies again! Thank you for the inspiration! Read More
