These are no ordinary brownies. Think of them as a thinner chocolate torte… creamy, rich and decadent. When we were at our favorite breakfast spot on Sunday, they were sampling their new brownies.

I immediately knew something was missing, and I loved every taste of it! So the quest began and these moist, melt in your mouth brownies were concocted.

Dark Chocolate No Flour Brownies

I can’t even begin to tell you how fudgy and delicious these no flour brownies are. They are called decadent for a reason! Made with dark chocolate, these are a grown up treat for sure. They are perfect on their own with a cup of coffee, or enjoy them with a scoop of ice cream like Cookie Butter or No Churn Chocolate Chip.

Gluten Free Brownie Recipe

Because these brownies have no flour in them, they are grain free and gluten free. They are perfect to make if you or anyone in your family have intolerances, or if you are entertaining someone who does. These brownies are a real crowd pleaser and are perfectly at home when served as a dessert for a dinner party.

How Long Do Flourless Brownies Keep?

Once the brownies are cooled and cut, place them in an airtight container with layers separated by parchment. At room temperature, they will keep for around 4 days and up to a week in the fridge. You can also freeze brownies, wrap the slices individually in plastic wrap and foil and stack in an airtight container. They will be good for up to a month.

Tips for Making Flourless Brownies

  • The toothpick test doesn’t work on flourless desserts. Instead, to ensure it’s thoroughly baked, do the touch test. If it bounces back to the touch, it’s ready! If it looks like jello in the center, add a little more time.
  • Thoroughly grease baking dish before pouring mixture in. This is my go to baking spray.
  • Store covered at room temperature or up to a week refrigerated.
