Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies

Adapted from the Baltic Maid

Ingredients    photo 2

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup natural unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup oat flour ( I made my own)
  • ½ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups peeled and grated zucchini
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips + ½ cup mini chocolate chips to sprinkle on top (for dairy-free, use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8″x 8″ pan with parchment paper or spray with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla, coconut sugar, and apple sauce and let this sit for 5 minutes to let the coconut sugar dissolve.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  (If making your own flour, place a generous cup of gluten-free oatmeal into a blender.  I found mine at Trader Joes.  Pulse until smooth and fluffy and you are done!)
  4. Add the dry mix to the wet, gently stir until combined. Be sure not to over mix!
  5. Then fold in the zucchini and 1 cup chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan and even the surface with a spatula.
  7. Sprinkle ½ cup mini chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle doesn’t come out gooey.
