Yep, brownies aren’t exactly a cookie, but they sure are good, so they made the list.

To get these fudgy bites cut cleanly, freeze the cooled brownies for 20 minutes before slicing with a sharp knife.

The Recipe: Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies


  • 6 tablespoon mild flavored oil
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 ounces good quality dark gluten & dairy free semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup <a href="" data-mce-href="">bean flour blend</a>
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 3 large eggs, beaten


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt chocolate, oil, and sugar in a sauce pan on med-low heat, stirring well so the ingredients are properly combined. Transfer to mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly. Sift gluten-free flour, cocoa and baking powder into the mixture and stir well. Add the beaten eggs. Stir until well blended.
  • Line an oiled 10 x 7 inch or 9 x 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Lightly oil paper. Pour in mixture. Let batter sit 30 min. Bake in preheated oven for about 35 minutes. Test with a toothpick in the centre to check that it's cooked through. Allow to cool completely.
