Gluten-free chocolate brownies

Decadent and fudgey, these brownies are completely gluten-free and delicious. To scatter some flavour and colour through the dense chocolate cake, I have added some goji berries, which are rich in antioxidants. To break up the rich texture of the brownies, I also incorporated a generous helping of roasted walnuts. Yum!

Gluten-free Chocolate Brownies

  • 1/2 cup of rice flour
  • 1/2 cup of plain gluten-free flour
  • a pinch of baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup of caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 80 grams of organic butter, melted
  • 100 ml of almond milk
  • 3/4 cup of roasted walnuts, roughly chopped (I roasted mine in the oven for 10 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup of goji berries, soaked in boiling water and drained
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a deep brownie pan or disposable foil tray
  2. Sift flours, baking powder and cocoa into a large bowl. Add sugar and stir to combine.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add eggs and melted butter. Pour in the goji berries and walnuts. Mix until just smooth.
  4. Spread batter into the prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes - you should see the brownie shrinking away from the side of the pan. 
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the tin before slicing into squares.
