Brownie For 2 (GF, DF/Vegan Option)

2 comments by Sara Evans


Ever get to after dinner and feel like something sweet, but you just don't have anything on hand? And you don't feel like making a full recipe? We've got you sorted with this brownie for two!

Granted, this is a BIG serving (we like it that way!) so it could easily also be brownie for three. We just used a gluten free flour blend in this, but it could easily be made with nut flour - we think our Hazelnut Flour would be a real treat! 

This recipe comes together in a few minutes, then only bakes for 10-12 minutes, so the whole thing is made in less than 20 minutes. We prefer ours topped with ice cream!

We made this one without using chocolate so that you could make it with basic pantry staples, however you can obviously add your own chocolate chips or chopped chocolate if you have it too.

We also only had a normal square brownie tin available, so simply lined that then folded a little piece of foil into an 'L' shaped edge to contain it to one area. We did this by inserting the bottom of the L under the brownie mix, then folding the baking paper over the vertical part to strengthen it.


Gluten-Free Brownie for 2
You'll Need:
  • 100g Butter, melted or coconut oil for dairy free/vegan
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 60g Cacao Powder (or Cocoa Powder!)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50g Gluten Free Flour or 40g Nut Flour + 10g Tapioca Starch/Rice Flour
  • Optional Add-Ins such as chocolate chips, walnuts or desiccated coconut


Preheat your oven to 180c and line a small baking tin with baking paper. 

Mix together melted butter, coconut sugar, cacao powder and salt. Once combined, mix in your vanilla.

Add your eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until the batter is thick. Add your flour and mix until it is thick and begins to pull away from the bowl. Fold in any of your additions.

Pour into your prepared tin, and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the edges are set and the middle is still slightly jiggly.

Remove from the oven, divide - and conquer! We like to top ours with our favourite ice cream.


Enjoy - and be sure to tag us @nourishandthrivenz if you make it! ❤️

    Perhaps they meant you can replace eggs with flax eggs

    Hi- it says there is a vegan option for this recipe but I can’t see it? My husband is allergic to egg, so n egg free option would be great (I’m gluten intolerant)
