These flourless double chocolate brownies are naturally gluten-free and made without beans, avocado, dates, or any other alternative ingredients. Just a double shot of chocolatey goodness!
This recipe is not for the faint of heart, and I apologize in advance for any inappropriate noises, salivary gland excretions, and/or heart palpitations that it may cause. Consider yourselves warned.
This is a recipe for my fellow chocolate addicts.
For the thin and crackly top lovers (brownie fans… you know what I’m talking about)…
For the soft, rich, fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth interior enthusiasts…
This is a recipe for those who happily find themselves in the kitchen at 7:30 AM on a Wednesday morning with melted chocolate smeared all over their forehead (true story)…
And for those who always grab another slice just to “make sure it’s good” (also a true story)…
This is a recipe for soft and fudgy Flourless Double Chocolate Brownies; one that doesn’t involve beans, avocado, dates, or any other alternative ingredients. Nothing but pure old-fashioned chocolatey goodness in these bad boys.
Chocolate is easily one of my favourite things in life. That’s why, when Hershey’s Canada reached out and asked me if I wanted to be part of their #ChipitsHoliday campaign, I did small happy dance and said heck.to.the.YES. I mean, I’ve been using Chipits as my go-to chocolate chip for pretty much as long as I’ve been baking. In fact, I’m 99.9% sure that they were the chocolate chips I used in the very first cookies I baked on my own when I was around 10 years old, and I always, always have a bag or two in my pantry for when the baking bug hits… which it has been a lot given the time of the year.
So let’s talk about the latest holiday treats to come out of my kitchen, shall we?
Oh, and I’m sorry for bombarding you with so.many.pictures, but I was going through all my shots and literally could.not.decide which ones to pick, so I gave up trying and found a way to make it work. I hope. You forgive me, right? Right.
Okay, so… these brownies. These brownies. You’ve seen the thin crackly tops. You’ve seen the dense, fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth interior. And you know that they’re loaded with chocolate. The batter is made up of both melted chocolate and cocoa powder –that’s it! Welllllll, that and some coconut oil, coconut sugar, and a few spoonfuls of arrowroot powder to help keep things moist, but there’s no flour, no beans, and no other substitutions that you might find in flourless brownies — just a whole lot of chocolatey goodness that’s perfect for holiday parties, special get-togethers, or relaxing evenings spent at home.
- 6 Tbsp (90 ml) coconut oil*
- 6 oz. (170g) Chipits semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2/3 cup (130 g) coconut sugar**
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup (20 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 Tbsp (24 g) arrowroot powder***
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350F (176C) and prepare an 8x8 (20x20cm) baking pan by lining it with a sheet of aluminum foil, leaving a few inches of overhang on the sides to allow for easy removal. Grease the foil and set aside.
- Add coconut oil and chocolate chips to a small saucepan set over low heat. Stir until oil and chocolate have melted before removing from heat and setting aside to cool slightly.
- Using a handheld mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and pale, about 2 minutes. Add melted chocolate mixture and mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low and add cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, and salt, mixing until well combined and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Batter should be thick and smooth.
- Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading it evenly with a greased spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until centre is set. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for about 15 minutes before removing and transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
