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.)

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.

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 13×9 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, add the brownie mix, egg, warm water, coconut oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes using a stand or handheld mixer. (You could also just use a whisk and work your arm muscles!)

  • Let cool completely before slicing into 16 pieces.

This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. To make vegan simply replace the egg with a flax or chia “egg”: mix 1 tablespoon flax meal or chia with 3 tablespoons water and let stand 5-10 minutes until gel forms.

    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.

    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.
