Vegan Gluten Free Brownies (GF): super rich & moist FUDGY vegan gf brownies! The best vegan gluten free brownie recipe—easy to make, mouthwateringly good, Gluten Free & Dairy Free!

What’s your favorite texture of vegan gluten free brownies? Is it fudgy and moist with deep chocolate flavor? Or is it cakey and a little fluffy with chocolate undertones? (Okay, admittedly, if chocolate is under, I can’t say what would be over it. Lol).

I think the best vegan gluten free brownies would be seriously chocolatey, with rich, moist chocolate flavor and unbelievably fudgy texture that’s just this side of baked. It would be a little light, but mostly dense and very satisfying. And chocolate would be the whole dang point of it!

*Gets off my soapbox*

So the age-old brownie debate rages on: moist & fudgy or light & cakey? If you said moist & fudgy, you’re in the right place. If you said the other thing, you know where to door is. … J/k! To that, I say, stick around, try these vegan gluten free brownies and see if you like ‘em. 😉

How to Make Vegan Gluten Free Brownies

When I first started baking vegan gluten free desserts, I was truly overwhelmed by all the hoops one needs to jump through in order to make such a treat… well, edible. There’s a reason why vegan gluten free desserts have a reputation for being gummy, oddly chewy when not needed, and totally crumbly when, again, not needed. So my mission in making these vegan gf brownies was to deliver a truly magnificent brownie dessert that no one would believe was gluten free and vegan.

I amped up the moist ‘n fudgy factor of these brownies by including two different kinds of vegan- and gluten free-friendly, healthy fats. I also chose to use gluten free oat flour because I find it’s the best ingredient for highlighting the main flavor in a recipe. Here, you’ll find that it’s chocolate (spoiler alert!).


Before starting on any baking adventure, I head straight to the oven and preheat that bad boy. It’s a habit I picked up when I started baking and ran into so many forgetful moments of not remembering to preheat the oven! Next, prepare your flax eggs–this is a good thing to do at the start of any vegan recipe that calls for it. Flax eggs need about 15 minutes to set, so you want it to be ready when you are. 😉


Whisk together almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup and coconut oil in a medium bowl. Then, whisk in cocoa powder until shiny and smooth. Whisk in vanilla, salt and flax eggs.


Fold in gluten free oat flour until no flour patches remain in your brownie batter. Fold in vegan chocolate chips.

Pour & Bake

Pour vegan gf brownie batter into a lined pan. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Cool, Slice & Enjoy

Cool, slice and enjoy the best vegan gluten free brownies ever!

Where to Buy Ingredients: Raw Cacao Powder & Golden Ground Flaxseed | Gluten Free Rolled Oats for making Homemade Oat Flour | Coconut Sugar | Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

*Do not use tahini (a seed butter)—the oil content is not consistent with nut butters and will make your brownies too oily.

A Note on Homemade Oat Flour: **If using homemade oat flour, make sure to blend the flour until very fine and sift the flour to remove coarse bits of oats that could create less than ideal results. Store until needed, then measure the amount required for the recipe.

Storing Instructions: Store in an airtight container for up to a week at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.

Freezing Instructions: These brownies freeze well. Store in an airtight freezer-friendly, airtight container in the freezer for up to a month. Thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before enjoying. Or, heat in the microwave for 10 second increments until just warm.

  1. I was just wondering if i could use mashed bananas instead of almond/nut butter? I don’t have any nut butter atm so was just wondering 🙏🏼

  2. Flavor is great and I like that they are not as sweet, but definitely richer in chocolate.

    The only sub I had to make was out of necessity as I was nearly out of coconut oil and didn’t even have the amt required left, so I used avocado oil.

    Followed everything else to a T. And they came out cakey. I have no idea why. I have top quality everything since I bake a lot and am gluten free. So all my flours are extra fine, and other ingredients are high quality.

    Any ideas on why they came out cakey? I was really looking forward to fudgy. They are a bit crumbly too. I baked for about 28m.

  3. So delicious!! My whole family is obsessed, I added little bit more maple syrup and some coconutfakes into the dough and it is simply amazing – thank you so much! Will take them to some familygatherings or parties😁

  4. I made these for my family and they were soo gooey and delicious! Everyone could hardly believe they were gluten free. They were not as sweet as everyone was used to but they were more than happy to load them up with toppings. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

  5. Thank you so much for this recipe! Vegan brownies are so challenging to master since eggs are so instrumental to brownie consistency. Made these per the recipe. I had to bake mine about 38 minutes; at 34 minutes, they were a bit jiggly in the middle. I felt like they were still a bit too soft to cut just cooling at room temperature, so I refrigerated them before cutting the rest. That worked well. They definitely firm more the longer they sit. I might consider multiplying the recipe by 1.5 next time as these brownies weren’t quite as thick as I like them. Overall, a good base GF/V brownie recipe. It’s probably the most successful one I’ve made from the internet. Thanks!

  6. These were really good but came out cakey versus fudgey. I used egg replacers instead of flax eggs – is that the issue?

    1. Oh wow! These brownies are definitely not meant to be cakey, in the least. Yeah, I’m thinking your guess might be the right one. Try using the flax eggs and let me know how you like that instead. 😉 P.S. 1) What kind of egg replacer did you use, and how many tablespoons of water & replacer were called for? 2) How long did you have to allow the egg replacer to set for before stirring it into the wet ingredients?

      1. The egg replacer was from Red Mills. This time I used flax eggs and made them as directed. They seemed a little runny after 17 minutes. Organic Palm Sugar is what I had for that. The brownies tasted great – and getting closer to fudgey and less cakey this time! I will try again this weekend. 😊
