Flourless chocolate brownies are pure goodness. Imagine bites of brownies that are rich, fudgy and gooey. They melt in your mouth and leave you wanting more.

How to make flourless brownies

Preheat the oven and coat the baking pan with a nonstick spray. Line the baking pan with a parchment paper and set it aside. In a sauce pan, melt butter, chocolate and sugar over medium heat until they’re completely melted and combined. Let the mixture cool for a few minute and then beat in the eggs one at a time. Add in vanilla and cocoa powder and mix well. Transfer the batter into the pan and bake for about 25 minutes.

How do you know when the brownies are done?

The top of the brownies will be completely set when they’re done and if you insert a toothpick in the middle of the brownie, it’ll come out with a few to no crumbs. 

Notes and tips for this recipe:

  • You can use margarine instead of unsalted butter to make these brownies. There will be no change in the texture or flavor. 
  • Melt the butter, sugars and chocolate in a sauce pan over medium heat and don’t use a microwave to melt the ingredients. Sometimes, melting in the microwave will make the chocolate grainy and the sugar might not dissolve completely. 
  • Make sure you’re using a brand of chocolate chips that you love and trust. If you have a favorite chocolate bar brand such as Lindt or Ghirardelli, use it!
  • Make sure all the ingredients are well mixed. Since this flourless brownie recipe has no leavening agent such as baking powder, overmixing won’t cause a problem. 
  • Don’t over bake the brownies otherwise they will be hard and grainy. 
  • Want to go over the top? Frost these brownies with this easy chocolate frosting

  1. I simply don’t understand, followed the recipe to the letter, became grainy, did not crack on top. I used Becel vegan margarine and great chocolate chips…Did not stick together, but became like coffee mulch…

    I am older and I have made countless recipes for brownies. And over time I have had my favorites. But THIS recipe beats all of the other recipes I have ever tried. And it’s the easiest. OMG. This should be the only recipe anyone would ever need for brownies.

    The best omg I used plant based butter daily free chocolate and brown sugar Splenda only dairy I used was one egg since eggs don’t bother my stomach I cut the recipe in half because it’s just me gooey and good and you can really feel the difference with out all the heavy flour and I made a dairy free drizzle with almond milk and dairy free chocolate or plant based heavy cream works as well thanks for the great recipe

    This is a great recipe! I made for the third time tonight for a friend of mine who has Celiac and has to avoid gluten. Her family loves them and calls them our “ world famous brownies.” I use salted butter, leave the cornstarch out (friend also allergic to corn) and double the recipe with no problems!

    This recipe is my go-to brownie recipe of all time! I use Munk Fruit as a sugar substitute and love the taste! I realized after making them a few times that I hadn;t been adding the 2 Tbsp of cornstarch. When I added it in, the batch seemed dry, so now I just don’t add it.

    I wanted to try a gluten free dessert, and one can never go wrong with brownies! They are chocolate-y and have a great texture. I cannot wait for my kids to try them. They hate when I make anything healthy, so I am going to keep the gluten free part to myself. (They taste great with ice cream!)
