Chocolate Walnut Brownies
Cake-like but super chocolatey & fudgy when you bite into them!
I am obsessed with these Gluten-Free Chocolate Walnut Brownies!
Truth: I usually make brownies from a boxed mix. There are a lot of great gluten-free brownies mixes on the market. But never again!
These take only 5 extra minutes to prepare and are sooooo good!
Cake-like but super chocolatey and fudgy when you bite into them, and with big chunks of walnuts that pair so well with the rich chocolate flavor.
Bonus, I really love that I know what makes them so delicious!
All you need is 9 ingredients! Butter (or dairy-free butter), Unsweetened Dark Chocolate 100% Cacao Chips (we used Pascha), eggs, sugar (remember the chips are unsweetened), gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules – affiliate link), vanilla extract, baking powder, salt and walnuts.
As an aside, purchasing through an affiliate link generates a small percentage of the sale for me, but does not change your cost at all. So purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!
Back to the brownies, they come together quickly!
First you melt the butter and chocolate together. While it melts, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and beat the eggs until light and airy.
Add the melted chocolate mix to the beaten eggs, along with the vanilla.
Then add in the flour mix. And stir in the walnuts.
