The best gluten free and grain free chocolate brownies! 


  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter (sub coconut oil for dairy free)
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Powdered sugar for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. (Note, using a pan bigger than this will result in overcooked brownies). 
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips and the butter. Stir frequently to avoid burning. Remove from heat once completely melted and smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the egg with the coconut sugar and vanilla. Add the cocoa powder, tapioca starch, sea salt, and melted butter and chocolate chip mixture and stir until a smooth batter is formed.
  4. Pour batter into your lined baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, then lift by the parchment paper to continue cooling on a cooling rack. When brownies are completely cool, dust with powdered sugar and slice. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
