Coconut oil creates a chewy texture with a subtle coconut flavor that perfectly complements rich chocolate flavor.

Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts and Coconut Oil - The Lemon Bowl

Whenever I crave something sweet, you can rest assured that chocolate will be involved. About once a month, I crave chocolate brownies or the perfect chocolate chip cookie. (If I’m baking lemon bars or hermit bars, likely I’m trying to get on the good side of my mommy or husband.)

Bob's Red Mill GF Brownie Mix - The Lemon Bowl

Recently I hosted a Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Giveaway and got to sample over 10 of their most popular GF products. My favorite so far? Their Gluten Free Brownie Mix. This is not a sponsored post, I simply can’t get over the deep chocolate flavor and perfect chewy texture. And of course now that I’ve jumped on the coconut oil bandwagon, I take any opportunity I can get to swap out butter with coconut oil.

Why the coconut oil love? Here’s the deal: yes, coconut oil contains saturated fat but not all saturated fats are created equal. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid which has been shown to provide a whole host of health benefits including boosting heart health, promoting weight loss and supporting your immune system.

You’re welcome.

  1. I wish this brownie mix came sugar free as I can’t have sugar in my diet. This way I could add xylitol or honey or stevia.

  2. I’ve used that Udis mix before. It’s so yummy and I made mine almost the exact same way, except I processed my own coconut flakes to make my own “butter”. If I ever made it again, I would follow yours and just use melted coconut oil instead to make it easier. I love Udis products so much.

  3. Liz,
    I very much appreciate all of your extensive research on the post-consumption-of-coconut-oil-brownie-guilt syndrome.

    Your willingness to go above and beyond for your readers is striking.

    Thanks for a tasty-looking recipe!
