Here’s a brownie recipe I made up the other day in honour of my little brother who was visiting from the big city – this one’s for you, bro!  These brownies are especially nice eaten with fresh strawberries, and they’re even better if they’re shared with those you love.  Enjoy.

Gluten free, dairy free, naturally sweetened, easy and delicious!

    Yum, these look great! Hazelnut seems to go so well with chocolate and cocoa.

  2. Mrs F says:

    These are very yummy and a great DF GF treat!!!
    I was wondering if you think these would freeze at all? Im always trying to think snacks and treats that I can cook up in bigger batches and freeze…

  3. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Mrs F! I haven’t frozen these before (they go too quick!) – but I think as long as you didn’t cook them completely dry they’d be fine. You know, just leave them a tiny bit gooey in the middle so they don’t dry out in the freezer. Let me know how you go!

  4. Mrs F says:

    Thank you, will have to cook up another batch and eat most of it and freeze a couple of pieces to experiment!!

  5. Christie says:

    I don’t have any hazelnuts… what would be better – almonds or walnuts?

  6. Jo Whitton says:

    Walnuts would be moister! I’d try that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Gabby says:

      I used a higher ratio of almonds to walnuts, as I didn’t read the notes below the recipe before making…..and it is definitely dry with the almonds.

  7. Lisa says:

    Hi Jo, I have some hazelnut meal to use up, how much would I use please?

    Whipped them up this morning, brought to work to share. Even have given the postie one. Yummo! Will try freezing too.

  9. Jo Whitton says:

    Hi Lisa, same weight of hazelnuts to meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you liked them, Anon! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope the postie did too, lol!!

    Could you use macadamias instead of hazelnuts?

  11. Janelle says:

    Hi Jo, this looks so good! Do you think I could sub the rapadura for honey?

  12. […] rice-almond milk). Sigh. Couldn’t do that, has grains in it. I thought about making the Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies in a cake tin, but I didn’t have any hazelnuts. I couldn’t make the Flourless Chocolate […]

    Hi Jo, These look so yummy, but unfortunately I am highly allergic to coconut so is there a substitute I could use please.
    Cheers, June

  14. Nikki says:

    Hi Jo
    These look amazing, would there be a way to substitute the eggs?
    Ps can’t do banana either…

    Made these yesterday for dessert last night. I think I overcooked, as usual! but they still tasted great. I cooked for 25 minutes and they had started to burn on top, but couldn’t taste the burnt when we ate it. Teamed it with your cashew cream.
    Loved by all, children and adults.
    Thank you!
    I did make one change, I used roasted carob powder as my daughter can’t have cacao/cocoa.
