Vegan Gluten Free Brownies (GF, Dairy Free)

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. 😉

Back in 2016, I shared these vegan gluten free brownies as “Gluten Free Vegan Brownies”. As it turns out, no one really searches for “gluten free vegan brownies,” but actually search for “Vegan Gluten Free Brownies.” Oh, the things you learn!

Since then, these gluten free dairy brownies have been made 1,000s of times, instagrammed over and over, commented on a bajillion times and well-loved the world over. So what’s the fuss about? Let’s just say it all starts with the taste and texture…

Taste & Texture: Vegan Gluten Free Brownies

These vegan gluten free brownies have the most incredible texture. Imagine: soft & moist squares of brownie goodness with fudgy, rich texture. Then, enjoy double the chocolate flavor from cocoa powder and vegan chocolate chips that bake up into the most satisfying, deep chocolate flavors that hit that sweet spot like no other.

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 so excited to see this on my insta… and then read the ingredients. My Little can’t do oats or almonds either. So searching again we will go. .

  2. These were by far the best brownies I have ever made! They are gooey melt in your mouth perfection!
    I had to use a mixure of almond four,rice flour and tapioca flour instead of the oat flour. I also used only 1\4 cup of coconut oil fearing that it would have a coconuty flavor.
    Turned out incredible!
    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Amalia, I’m so happy to hear it. 🙂 Yay on your flour combo working so wonderfully in my recipe! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. Happy baking!

  3. My son loves them!! I’ve made a double batch too. I substituted sunflower butter for the almond butter, which works well. I get such joy from banking gluten free, vegan recipes that work!! Thank you!!

    1. That’s so wonderful to hear, Heidi! Love that you used sunflower butter in these. It’s truly such a pleasure to hear how much you enjoy gluten free vegan baking. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and let me know. .

  4. I’ve tried so many batches of FAILED vegan AND gluten free brownies, until i came across this recipe. I didn’t have oat flour so I used my Bob’s Red Mill “1-to-1” gluten free flour. It worked prettty well, but I’m curious if the oat flour provides a better texture….
    My main question: am i able to substitute the coconut oil for butter? I would imagine I can although the ratios would be different. These brownies are near perfect! I’m just not a huge fan of the slight coconut oil taste. Might have to tweak it. I also used brown sugar instead of coconut sugar, and unfortunately had to omit the vanilla as I am allergic.

    1. So happy to hear that you enjoyed these, Meghan! 🙂 Yes, oat flour would most likely provide a better texture since that’s what I developed this around. A few readers have substituted the coconut oil for the same amount of butter with success. Try using almond extract–it’s delicious! Happy baking!

    2. I just made these brownies, and I used refined organic coconut oil (Nutiva brand), which does not have any flavor or aroma of coconut at all! I made sure I used a metal pan, and not glass or ceramic, and it came out perfectly! I made it for a birthday party, so I added the chocolate frosting and colored gluten-free sprinkles (Let’s Do Organic Sprinkelz Confetti) on top as well!

      1. Good note on not using glass or ceramic as well as using refined coconut oil to avoid the taste. Loving the sound of these with chocolate frosting on top! .

  5. These are delicious. I have never made vegan baked goods before and this has inspired me to try other vegan (and gluten free) dessert recipes. They have an amazing consistency and rich flavor. I made them for my family’s Valentine’s Day celebration dessert tonight and everyone was very pleased!

    1. Thank you for leaving such a wonderful comment, Maria. ❤️ Let me know if you ever need help finding a vegan and gluten free recipe! Wishing you and your family and wonderful Valentine’s Day! .

  6. Just made these tonight! Haven’t tasted yet but super excited and they have the crispy top that I only used to get with boxed brownies. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. These are SOOO Good! My vegan daughter loved them so much, she has requested they be made for her wedding! So… have you tried doubling the recipe and using an 9 x 13 pan? I’m concerned they might not cook thoroughly. I need to make several batches and it would sure be easier if I can make it in bigger batches. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe!

    1. Hi Sheryl, I’m so glad to hear that these were a hit! 🙂 Her wedding: what an honor! I haven’t tried doubling the recipe (we may or may not have an issue with finishing the whole pan too quickly at my house haha). I’m not sure how they’ll turn out, but try increasing the bake time by about 3-6 minutes for the double batch. Good luck and let me know how it turns out. 🙂 Wishing your daughter and her partner a lifetime of love and happiness. ❤️
