I love a one-dish baking recipe, to cut down on mess and clean-up! Unlike some gluten-free or grain-free baked goods, these have a pleasant texture as well. Experiment by adding your choice of nuts, flavored chocolate chips, and different flavor extracts. Top with icing if you wish. At Christmas, crushed candy canes and 1 1/2 teaspoons mint extract make for a nice holiday treat.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease one 8-inch cake pan and dust with almond flour.

  • Whisk almond flour, honey, walnuts, cocoa powder, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Pour into prepared pan and smooth top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the center is set and edges pull away from sides of the pan, 20 to 25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should be clean or have a few moist crumbs attached.

Cook's Note:

Instead of greasing the cake pan, you can cut a piece of parchment to fit the bottom.

Excellent recipe. The batter is super moist and if not you likely forgot the eggs or coconut oil. I substituted about half of a cup of Truvia for the honey. This made the raw batter taste a little off but was delicious once baked. Also I used a 8x8 glass dish and these were very " skinny" brownies. I would probably double the recipe next time. The baking times is accurate. Nice crispy/flaky top like wheat flour brownies. Give these a try. Read More

I have made other gluten free brownies and I thought these were pretty good. I followed the recipe except for the coconut oil I used half vegetable oil and half butter with canola oil. I didn't want them overly sweet so I subbed half the honey with coconut sugar. I added the optional walnuts and highly recommend that. I lined an 8" pan with heavy duty foil and sprayed with Baker Joy spray. The lifted right off the foil. I got 16 brownies. ty Read More

I thought it might be a little weird with the honey but it is fine. Also thought maybe more cocoa would be wanted but 5 T is more than enough for this. Read More

Just loved it!! I didn't have honey so I used 1/3 cup xylitol granules. Also I have Black Cocoa from King Arthur and I used 1 T of it and 4 of the regular cocoa. Extra richness! Read More

Followed the recipe exactly and these are fantastic! Unsure as to what others did wrong as these were moist and delicious. Would go perfectly with vanilla ice cream! Cake pan size was awkward tho and I baked in what I had which was a typical square 9x9 cake pan. They were perfect after the full 25 minutes. Will definitely make these again and again! Read More
