Easy gluten free cassava flour brownies. Fluffy, perfectly sweet, and simple!


  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 5 tbsp grass fed butter or ghee
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cassava flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • ~1/2 container of chocolate frosting (I used this one)
  • Naturally dyed sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease an 8×8 baking pan.
  2. On the stove, gently heat the chocolate, maple syrup, butter, and cocoa powder on low until melted and smooth, stirring frequently. Be careful not to burn. Set aside to cool.
  3. While chocolate mixture is cooling, in a large bowl whisk together the eggs and vanilla. 
  4. Mix in the cassava flour, sea salt, and baking soda. Pour in the chocolate mixture (use a rubber spatula to make sure you get all of the chocolate mixture out of the pot!) and stir until it is a smooth batter.
  5. Pour batter into the greased baking dish and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean (a few crumbs are fine- careful not to over bake!). Allow to completely cool for at least 25 minutes before adding frosting/sprinkles and slicing. Enjoy!
