Who can resist a thick fudgy brownie? Here a few of the best gluten free brownie recipes from The Gluten Free Gathering.
No sweet treat speaks to me more than a thick, fudgy brownie. When I found out that I had an egg allergy, brownies and I said a fond “goodbye”. It was a sad, sad day! But, thankfully with a little kitchen experimentation, I developed a gluten free and egg free brownie recipe that is totally amazing. It’s my go to.

Classic Brownies (Gluten & Egg Free)
These brownies are my base recipe. They produce a thick, fudgy brownie with a crackly crust. I find that these brownies are best when they are allowed to cool at room temperature after baking, then lightly covered with foil and placed in the refrigerator to chill overnight. They are nothing short of amazing.
Gluten Free Mint Brownies (Gluten & Egg Free)
These brownies begin with my base brownie recipe. With the simple addition of a package of chopped Andes Mint Candies, these brownies take on a whole new personality. The mint is not too overwhelming or underwhelming. The chocolate and mint strike the perfect balance.
Peanut Butter Brownies (Gluten & Egg Free)
A peanutty layer of creamy peanut butter fills the center of these brownies. Crunchy peanut butter would be equally as delicious as well.
Brownie Truffle Bites (Gluten Free)
These little gems are super easy to make. I picked up a container of Canyon Bakehouse’s Brownie Bites and combined them with some cream cheese and melted dark chocolate. After the truffles are formed they each get a generous bath in more chocolate. Perfect!
Using Aquafaba as an Egg Replacer
What is aquafaba? Well, aquafaba is the liquid found in a can of garbanzo beans. I know…sounds totally unappealing. And, it is. But that liquid gold has a little magic stored up inside of it. When reduced this liquid becomes the perfect egg replacement…especially in my brownie recipes.
I have found that using either Bush’s Organic Garbanzo Beans or Wholesome Pantry’s Organic Garbanzo Beans yields the best results. When selecting beans be sure to opt for organic. The price difference is minimal. And with organic, you won’t get any of the preservatives found in many other canned beans.
The Key to Success is Reduction
While other recipes call for you to whip aquafaba into a light and airy cloud, I prefer to simply reduce the liquid by half. The brownie recipes on my site call for 1 cup of aquafaba to be reduced to 1/2 cup.
