Gluten-Free Walnut Brownies

Recipe by duonyte
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350° and prepare an 8×8 or 9×9 or 7x11 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate chips together. It's easiest to use a microwave-safe bowl and just microwave them for 30-40 seconds, stir, microwaved again, etc. until the butter and chocolate are smoothly melted together. You can also do this step in a double boiler.
  • Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together cornstarch and unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Stir these dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture. Since you’re not stirring flour and activating gluten you’ll need to stir these brownies a bit longer than you would regular brownies. When the mixture starts to pull away from the side of the bowl, stir in the walnuts. (Toasting the walnuts will enhance the flavor).
  • Spread brownie batter in the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. The brownies are done when an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
