Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Hello Dolly meets chewy fudgy brownies! These gluten-free, dairy-free brownies are nut-free and so sweet and delicious.

12-16 Servings

Cook time: 25-30 minutes

Prep time: 15 minutes


1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)

1 tbsp olive oil

2 large eggs

2 tsp gluten-free vanilla

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup gluten-free flour

Sprinkle of sea salt (optional)

1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips

Garnish: (optional)

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using parchment paper, line a square 8x8 (or 9x9) baking dish.

2) Blend sugar, vegan butter, and oil together. Add eggs and vanilla, blend for a minute.

Add cocoa, gluten-free flour, salt, and a 1/4 cup of dairy-free chocolate chips. Stir ingredients together, do not over mix or brownies will become cakey.

3) Pour batter into a lined baking pan. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, taking the brownies out of the oven after 15 minutes to sprinkle 1/4 cup of shredded coconut and 1/4 cup of dairy-free chocolate chips on top. Return brownies to the oven and bake for the remaining 10-15 minutes. These brownies are also great without the coconut garnish.

4) Remove from the oven and let brownies sit in the pan until cool.

Tips: Use your favourite gluten-free flour. I have tried Bob Mills 1-to-1 GF Baking Flour as well as brown and white rice flour. They all work great!

Don't over stir brownies! They will become cakey.

Eggs are important in this recipe!
