Peanut-Free/Tree Nut-Free/Gluten-Free Brownies Recipe

;) Hi y'all! read that correctly!  These brownies are not only incredibly moist, and chewy and DELICIOUS, they are allergen-safe! :) Can I get some cheers, please! I took these to a school event, and most people did not even know they were all of the above, because quite frankly, their taste is NORMAL AND DECADENT!  Here's my recipe!


1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup Gluten Free all-purpose flour, GF AP, (I usually either make my own mix or use the Bob's Red Mill brand)
Xantham Gum: for Cookies (or brownies) 1/4 tsp per cup of GF AP flour
1/3 cup unsweetened PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE cocoa powder (Believe it or not, the Hershey's brand is is safe!)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan. 

Left: wet ingredients...right dry...mix dry into wet always!

In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, combine the GF flour, cocoa, baking powder, xantham gum and salt; gradually stir into the egg mixture until well blended. Spread the batter evenly into the greased/floured pan. 

Bake for 35 to 40  minutes, or until it begins to pull away from edges of pan. Let it cool on a wire rack before cutting into squares as it will be chewy and might fall apart if you try to cut it while hot!

Lastly, enjoy!
