Almond Flour Brownies – Super Gooey! (paleo option)

These almond flour brownies are just as delicious as traditional gooey brownies but are made entirely with almond flour and can easily be made paleo and dairy-free. They’re also super easy to make!

The same is also true of my almond flour banana muffins that I just posted. Definitely check those out after making these brownies. ;)

Together with my paleo chocolate chip cookies, my gluten-free brownies recipe have been one of my most popular recipes over the years. I have three different gluten-free flour options listed on that recipe (plus whole wheat flour for gluten-tolerating people) but readers wanted more.

So I came up with these coconut flour brownies (be sure to check out my favorite cookies, these coconut flour cookies, if you love coconut flour!).

But that still wasn’t enough. So here’s another! Brownies with almond flour. And it’s the last one. 5 flour options are enough! ;)

I think I’ve now got everyone covered, at least from the flour perspective – you can choose from plain gluten-free flour, whole grain gluten-free flours (buckwheat + teff), a grain-free + nut-free flour (coconut flour) and now a grain-free nut flour version.

Which flour is the best?

If you’re wondering which version to make, you can choose whichever one you have the flour for. They all taste the same and have the same texture.

If you’ve got them all, the coconut flour version is the cheapest. The original recipe, with teff, buckwheat or a GF 1:1 baking flour, is in the middle, and these almond flour brownies are the most expensive to make.

They call for 1 1/3 cups (133 grams) of almond flour so these brownies don’t cost a fortune. They’re definitely cheaper than some other healthy brownie recipes that call for a cup of almond butter, half a cup of maple syrup, and so on.

I have nothing against those brownies and am working on such a version myself. :)

Can I make these eggless?

While I think I have everyone covered from the flour perspective, I’m really sorry to say that I’ve never been able to make these brownies vegan. It’s really, really hard to replace eggs in brownies.

I’ve tried egg replacers in the original version, the coconut flour version, and the below gluten-free brownies with almond flour. They’re all disasters.

Flax eggs, chia eggs and powdered egg replacers haven’t worked. The brownies were super oily.

I’m working on a vegan brownie recipe, though! I promise. It’s actually the aforementioned almond butter + maple brownies.

If you need a chocolaty vegan dessert recipe now, check out my kladdkaka (Swedish sticky chocolate cake), vegan chocolate cake, vegan chocolate ice cream or vegan chocolate cheesecake. All are either gluten-free or paleo!

I think that’s it from me. I’ve answered questions about every single ingredient down below!

Other questions about these almond flour brownies?

  • Can I use something instead of almond flour?

    Almond flour is only really interchangeable with other nut flours so cashew or hazelnut meal might work, but the texture likely wouldn’t be exactly the same as the fat content of those flours are different.

    I’ve never used almond meal in these but think it’d work fine.

  • Can I use homemade almond flour?

    I don’t recommend it. It’s impossible to make it as fine as store-bought almond flour. If it’s not finely ground, the brownies are likely to be greasy.

  • Do I have to use Dutch-process cocoa powder?

    No, but they won’t be as chocolaty and might be more cakey. Or they could totally fail (but I don’t think they would). The type of cocoa powder actually plays a big role in some recipes!

  • Can I use something instead of coconut oil or butter?

    Those are the only two I’ve tried. One commenter (thanks, Na!) said they used ghee with success. People have also said that they’ve used olive oil in the original version but I haven’t tried it.

  • Do they taste like coconut?

    Not if you use refined coconut oil. They taste 100% like regular, super gooey traditional brownies.

  • These almond flour brownies are just as delicious as traditional gooey brownies but are made entirely with almond flour and can easily be made paleo and dairy-free. Super easy to make!

  • Can I use something instead of coconut sugar / granulated sugar?

    Subbing in a liquid sweetener won’t work. There’s no liquid to reduce to make up for the added liquid, so it’d make the brownies cakey or possibly a liqudy mess. Other granulated sweeteners like maple sugar would probably work.

    I have tried making these and the original gluten-free brownies recipe with keto sweeteners and the oil totally separated. And they were inedible. So I don’t recommend experimenting! I hope to someday post a keto brownie recipe.

  • Can I reduce the sugar?

    There’s been a lot of talk about this on the original recipe. People saying that they reduce the sugar to basically nothing and they’re still gooey. But that’s not possible. Or we must have differing opinions of what gooey means. The less sugar you add, the more cakey and less gooey they are. They might also not hold together as well because sugar is a binder.

    You could probably knock off 1/4 cup of sugar but don’t be surprised if they don’t have the perfect texture you see in the photos.

  • These almond flour brownies are just as delicious as traditional gooey brownies but are made entirely with almond flour and can easily be made paleo and dairy-free. Super easy to make!

  • What can I use instead of the eggs?

    I’ve tried egg replacements so many times and failed. Please just find an already vegan brownie recipe! I’m also working on a vegan brownie recipe. I’d love to make everyone happy. :D

  • Do I have to use the chocolate chips?

    Nope! They’re sweet enough without. I just like them in my brownies. You could also top them off with my favorite paleo chocolate fudge frosting.

  • Can I double this brownie recipe?

    Yes! Use a 9″x13″. I didn’t write down the baking time but one reviewer (thanks Melissa!) has done it and said you need 37 minutes. Her daughter also doubled them and confirmed this. :D But all ovens are different so keep an eye on them!

If you try this almond flour brownie recipe, I’d love to hear how they come out!

Almond Flour Brownies – Super Gooey! (paleo option)
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Ready in:
  • Yield: 16 brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups (133 grams) finely ground blanched almond flour (this is called ground almonds in many countries)
  • 3/4 cup (86 grams) Dutch-process cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (196 grams) refined coconut oil, melted (you can use unrefined if you don't mind the coconut taste) or butter for a non-paleo version if you can have dairy
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 grams) coconut sugar - it's best to weigh this! (granulated sugar for a non-paleo version)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large (50 grams each, out of shell) eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (128 grams) chopped semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chocolate chips (make sure to use paleo chocolate, if needed)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips on top

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and line an 8"×8" (20cmx20cm) pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the melted butter or coconut oil, sugar, and vanilla extract. Once combined, add the eggs one at a time, and stir just until combined (don't use a hand mixer like in the video!).
  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir just until almost no streaks of flour remain. Do not overmix! Fold in 3/4 cup (128 grams) chocolate chunks.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the 1 cup mini chocolate chips on top.
  6. Bake for 23 minutes. The brownies will puff up a little bit and may crack a little bit around the edges and the top will appear dry and crisp (not at all wet). When you remove it from the oven and tilt the pan, it may appear to move a little but shouldn't look super jiggly. A toothpick inserted into the center will come out wet. A toothpick inserted into the sides will come out with some moist crumbs on it, but not totally raw batter. The brownies will continue to bake as they sit in the pan and will firm up as they cool.
  7. Let cool completely and cut into squares. Cover and store at room temperature for 3 days or refrigerate for 5 days. They get firmer and have a great texture from the fridge!

Notes

  • There is no need to use a hand mixer like in the video! The videographer made a mistake with that but it didn't actually have an effect on these brownies - they were still super gooey. Normally with brownies, you don't ever want to use a mixer because overmixing leads to bad brownies. It didn't matter here because these are grain-free brownies and there's no gluten to overmix.

    OH.MY.GOSH. I just made these again ( for the umpteenth time!) and they are absolutely perfect. So many brownie recipes, especially grain free ones on the web, are just not balanced b/c they’re either too wet or to dry or too sweet or not sweet enough. If you’re reading this and you’re wondering if this recipe is worth making, just do it. It is the best recipe for brownies I have EVER made gluten free or not. I have made dozens of different brownie recipes over the last several years because brownies are my favorite dessert. SO GOOD.

    These brownies are DELICIOUS!! I baked mine in a mini muffin tin for about 15 minutes and they came out perfectly. A tad crispy on the outsides, so moist and soft inside, satisfyingly sweet, and rich with chocolatey flavor. This is the perfect almond flour brownie recipe. OMG do they hit the spot! Thank you so much!!

That sounds perfect parties or bake sales (for the future – I hope everyone is staying safe ;)) They’re too gooey in their 8×8 pan form. Thanks for sharing the baking time!

    My mom introduced me to these brownies! In fact, she’s the “Melissa” who doubled the recipe. I can confirm – 37 minutes in a 9×13 is perfect! I have made A LOT of GF and non-GF brownie recipes over the years, and these are BY FAR THE BEST. They are decadent, gooey, and perfectly rich. My friends who I shared them with also agreed! Also, I didn’t have dutch processed cocoa, so I used REGULAR cocoa. I weighed it and did 150g as 172g (which is what it would be doubled) seemed like too much. I also didn’t have any extra chocolate chips to sprinkle on top… and guess what?! It still turned out perfect!!!! Thank you!!!

      Hi Courtney! This is the first time (that I know of) that I’ve heard from a relative of a commenter and I love it so much. 😁 I added your confirmation of the baking time to the questions section. Thank you! I’m so glad that you think these are the best gluten-free brownies. It’s really great to know that regular cocoa powder works well. I live in Germany and all we really have is Dutch-process so I almost never test my recipes with regular (because I order it from the US and need to ration the little I have!). It’s also interesting to know that you didn’t need the full 172 grams. You’re welcome for the recipe and thanks a ton for your feedback!

        No, I couldn’t taste the olive oil at all, but I used an extra light olive oil. I find that you can taste the ones that are deeper in color. I would have used coconut oil if I had it, but I ran out and didn’t want to wait to eat these!

          I find that you can’t even taste extra-virgin olive oil in a lot of chocolate treats once they’re cooled. I’m just confused that it’s all I could taste but my husband couldn’t taste it. I lost my sense of taste about a year ago (and haven’t come up with new recipes since then!) and it’s slowly come back but sometimes I have moments where it’s not normal. Maybe that’s the issue. 🤷‍♀️ Anyway. Thanks for the reply! :)

      Thanks for pointing that out! What you see at the top was incorrect. I fixed that. The recipe is correct. Some commenters have said that they’ve needed longer and some haven’t said that. I’ve made these a ton of times and am guessing some people just like their brownies more done than others.

    These are absolutely amazing! I have worked at a gluten-free bakery and bake for some gluten-intolerant and celiac friends. Typically GF brownies are either gritty or dry. Not these! I used eggs and butter. They were moist and cakey (not a bad thing) once cooled but I refrigerated them and they had a great fudgy texture. I served them to a guest who was in the middle of telling a story and she actually stopped mid-sentence and said “Oh.my.god. These are the best brownies I have ever eaten.” They are definitely the best ones I’ve ever made, and that includes the bakery.

I know it’s ridiculous to have leftover brownies lol but there’s only three of us in my house and we try to do things in moderation (but your goodies make that reallllllly hard!)

      Well, that’s a question I never thought of. ;) I honestly have no idea. I had never frozen brownies until a few weeks ago (I’m working on an oat flour version and made several 8×8 pans in a few days) and I eat them straight from the freezer. They are super delicious! I think both coconut flour + almond flour recipes would be similar but I’m not positive. And both should keep as long as the other one. If you’re not sure which to make, go with coconut flour. It’s cheaper. And thank you! :)

    These brownies look fabulous! Only problem is I am staying as far away from sugar as I can possibly manage so I may be experimenting with sugar replacements even though you do not recommend it. I would make them with all the sugar and take them to something but everything has been canceled thus far:(. Anyway, I will get back to you and let you know what happens.
    For some reason I am not receiving your emails anymore. I know this has happened in the past. I tried adding myself to your list again but it is telling me I am already on it.

      I use Lakanto monk fruit granules in all my baked goods with great success. You can always run it thru a coffee grinder or even the nutribullet to make it more powdery but for most recipes including ice cream it works great. We all need to get the sugar out and this is one great way to do it and still enjoy Erin’s wonderful recipes!

        I tried Lakanto in the original GF brownies recipe and it came out terribly. I had to throw them away. :( I don’t know what it is, but whenever I’ve tried it in brownies, the oil totally separates and it’s a mess. And the taste is just awful. I think I just don’t like Lakanto but still… I don’t understand the oil separation. I would love to post more keto recipes but this has me stuck!

        Thanks for letting us know that it worked well! After reading your comment, I made them with a mixture I’ve been using lately with xylitol, erythritol and stevia. The taste was okay but the texture was totally off. They weren’t fudgy. They were kind of clumpy, if that makes sense, which it probably doesn’t. 😂 I don’t know how to explain it. It was just off! So how is the version with all xylitol? And was there quite a bit of aftertaste? Thanks so much for your comment!

      Hey,

      When using 100% Xylitol in place of sugar, there was absolutely no noticeable aftertaste. (Especially compared to something like Stevia). I’m not sure, but maybe erythritol or stevia are harder to use because they don’t chemically bind well with the eggs and almond flour.

      In our oven, the consistency was completely finished baking around 45 minutes instead of the time suggested. It was completely underbaked at 23 minutes. I hope this helps :)

    These look amazing! Question: You mention “Paleo chocolate chips.” What do you mean by that? Do you make them yourself or is there a brand you recommend?

      Thanks! Most people consider Enjoy Life’s chocolate chips to be paleo. There are other paleo brands of chocolate, too. I live in Germany so I have access to different brands over here. You could also make homemade, if you prefer. :) (but I don’t have a recipe) I’d love to hear how you like the brownies if you try them!

        Lilly’s is a good brand in the US. They’re sweetened with Stevia and come in milk and dark and taste yummy.

    I have never written a recipe review, but these brownies are the most deserving place to start. Oh My Gosh, these are amazing!! I followed the recipe, but used butter. I woke up the next morning and some little stinkers had snuck into it and only left a tiny little square! I’m making a double batch tomorrow so we can enjoy them a little longer (I’m pretty sure that’s just wishful thinking on my part). These were a huge hit with everyone in my family, and they never agree on brownies. By the way, they were easy to make!

      Woohoo! I’m so happy to hear that you like them so much. And how funny that your little stinkers left a tiny little square for you. I love their style. 😂 Could you do me a huge favor and come back to let me know how long you baked the double batch for? I forgot to write that down when I tried. I’d love to add that to my recipe but we haven’t been able to find eggs for the last week, so I haven’t been able to make them again. Thanks a ton for your feedback! I was thrilled to get a review on this recipe. :) It’s definitely made my day!

        They turned out perfectly again! I was secretly hoping that doubling the recipe would be a disaster, so I could turn my back on my newest obsession. But, these are literally the best brownies I have ever tasted, I’m in serious trouble over here!
        I baked them in a 9 x 13 for 37 min….. Good Luck!

          Haha. I love how you kind of wanted them to be a disaster. But I’m also happy that you don’t have to turn your back on your newest obsession (though I suppose you could have just made the single recipe? 😂) Thanks a bunch for coming back to let me know about the baking time! I’ve updated the post with it. And sorry for my slow reply. My kid’s been home the last 3 months, so, you know… ;)

    Have you ever tried using an all purpose gluten free flour? Bob’s Red Mill, Great Value, Namaste, etc. usually include rice or bean flour, potato and/or corn starch, tapioca and xanthan gum.

      Yup! It’s listed in the original recipe I link to at the beginning of the post. I used BRM 1-to-1 GF Baking Flour. :)

    I make vegan grain free brownies w peeled, diced and boiled sweet potatoes, almond flour, cocoa powder, and agave nectar. I add semisweet chocolate chips and use vanilla & a dash of salt for flavor. I mix it all in a food processor, and taste the batter, adding a tablespoon of brown sugar at a time until it tastes right (it depends on the amount of sweet potato I get). The brownies are yummy, very fudgy, but take *forever* to cook, lol, about 45 minutes at 350F. Line your pan with parchment, these are sticky!

      Nope. :( Go check out the section “Can I use something instead of coconut sugar / granulated sugar?”

    I have made yummy vegan brownies with equal parts date paste and nut butter. Then add cocoa powder to taste. Bake and enjoy.

        Depending on how long you bake them they will be brownies or fudge. Both really good. Cashew butter is my fave for a really smooth base. My ratio is a cup nut butter, a cup date paste 1( the same consistency as the butter) half cup or more cocoa powder and a tsp. Baking powder. However, heavy on the “ish”
        Im a freestyle baker sooo….

    Can’t wait to try making these today! Curious if you’ve tried using applesauce for the egg? The minimal amount still allowed this recipe to be keto. It’s a dessert after all, it’s going to be higher in carbs than a meal regardless.

    If applesauce works I’ll report back!

      I’ve only tried the egg subs I mentioned. I’d love to hear how your applesauce experiment goes! To be honest, I don’t have much hope for it. :/ Maybe do a fourth batch? I’d hate for you to waste all those ingredients! I’m confused about the keto thing, though. These brownies aren’t keto. There’s a whole 1 1/2 cups of coconut sugar in them. Or do you mean using keto sweetener + applesauce for the egg would still make them keto? I also haven’t had luck with keto sweeteners in these. :(

        I used 300g Pyure granulated sweetener and 150g room temp apple sauce in place of the egg. No other changes except only 1/2 cup inside. Brownies came out great! Gooey inside, crunchy outside. Baked for 29 min. They just need to cool fully in the pan before removal.

          Wow! I’m shocked and SO happy that that worked out well! I really need to try that egg replacement. Thanks for including the amount in grams! I checked out Pyure and it says it’s 2x as sweet as regular sugar. So shouldn’t you use 150 grams? Or are there different types of Pyure and I’m looking at the wrong one? Thanks so much for your feedback!
