Chewy Fudge Brownies

To gluten-free eaters, these are an answer to prayers!

And to people who couldn’t care any less about gluten?Ā  Well, let’s just say they won’t care that this recipe contains no wheat or otherwise offensive gluten-containing ingredient.

If you are using this recipe because you are gluten-free, though, just be sure to double check your oats before you buy them to ensure they aren’t cross-contaminated (processed in a facility that packages wheat products.)

Either way, these 5-ingredient brownies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

Must. Get. Vanilla. Ice cream.


  1. do you know what would be a good substitute for the oat flour here? I don’t have any gluten-free oats on hand, but I do have all sorts of other gluten-free flours…

  2. Oh my goodness!! I made these as soon as your post went up!
    I added a dash of cinnamon, salt, and a squirt of vanilla. Super yummy!

  3. Yum! I’m not gluten-free, but I love when I can find delicious-looking sweets without it because my hubby is avoiding gluten this year because it doesn’t make him feel that great. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. I had a near total brownie disaster because I made these today in my toaster oven which I had inadvertently set on BROIL. My smoky effort to save my brownie goodness (when I scraped off the top and rebaked correctly) was totally rewarded-
    THESE are YUMMY!!!! I did omit 1/2 cup of sugar and they are still sweet and delicious!

  5. I’m confused, do you grind oat flour in the food processor?

    Or do you get gf oats and grind them up?

    The ingredients say oat flour, the directions say oats…..

    • Hey Samantha. You can use oats if you have something to grind them with. A food processor works fine for this. However, some may prefer to buy oat flour. Either way is fine. šŸ™‚

    These are super yummy! Question: what would cause there to be a lighter colored layer on the bottom – maybe egg sunk to the bottom? Mine got really done around the edges and were really gooey in the center, too. Any ideas? I followed the directions exactly. Like I said, they are yummy anyway! šŸ™‚

    • I noticed some lighter color on the bottom of mine, too, and I thought it was oats. šŸ™‚ Also, cooking temps/cooking times can vary resulting in different consistencies…. They are supposed to be a bit gooey, though. I personally think they are best either hot with vanilla ice cream or plain on day 2! šŸ™‚

  7. Just found your blog last night. Love it! I am a mom of 5 boys and 2 girls. I realy like all your use of coconut oil & healthy recipes. These brownies are going in the oven now. I hope they turn out cause I want to give them to a gf friend.

    • Oh, so glad to have you here! Hope you love the brownies. I like them either piping hot or on day 2…Let me know how yours turn out. šŸ˜‰

  8. Do you think replacing the butter with coconut oil would work? I also can’t have dairy? Just started subbing coconut oil in other recipes but haven’t tried it in brownies yet.

  9. I made these according to the directions however the center was like liquid. Can anyone help me out?

    • Hi Shannon. I think you probably just need to increase the cooking time by five or ten minutes. Just keep checking them so they don’t over-bake. šŸ™‚ Also, they take a bit to set up, even after baked. The next day, ours were still very moist and chewy, but had a firmer, fudgier texture. šŸ™‚

    I am thanking God for the blessing of you & your blog. Our 6 yr old little girl has been complaining of her tummy hurting. After outgrowing egg, dairy and peanut allergies by 2 years old, still not liking dairy much AND With 3 out of 5 aunts who can’t eat gluten/wheat, it was the first thing to eliminate (processed GF foods were the second.) Seems to be helping most of the time!! Thnk you for your blog! Have been a fan and follower even before needing GF recipes šŸ™‚

  11. Hi Brandy,
    I’m just now finding out about your website, and I thank you so much for all the recipes and info! Right now, I am, in fact, addicted to sugar, but God and I are working on it. That being said, what would you recommend to use in place of the sugar in these recipes? Is there something I can use? And when you say sugar, do you mean white sugar, or could I use organic sugar? Thanks so much!

    • You could use sucanat, honey, turbinado, your choice. šŸ™‚ And thanks for your sweet words, April. I’m so glad you’re here!

      • Brandy, you are so welcome, and thank you for the advice on what to use! I’m so excited to finally be able to get strong and healthy forever! This is the beginning of the BEST of my life!
