Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

Katie/Baby update: I feel like I’ve been having way too many Braxton Hicks contractions. They’ve been very evident since about 2 pm yesterday. I did call the midwife on call around 7 pm but she said hydrate, take a bath, and basically don’t worry about it until they get more painful or you can’t talk during the contractions. Well, contractions woke me up probably 6 times last night — it was pretty annoying. So this morning I changed my appointment from tomorrow to this afternoon. I’ll be able to get checked and make sure the BH contractions aren’t causing dilation. I should have more of an update later on, but for now, here’s a yummy recipe :)


Boy, do I have a recipe for you!! I am so proud of these brownies — they are fudgy and chewy and just plain delicious. John and my dad both tried these as well and highly enjoyed them!

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

by Katie Heddleston

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes

Cook Time: ~35 minutes

Keywords: bake dry heat dessert gluten-free cake

Ingredients (16 brownies)

  • 2/3 cup margarine
  • 5 ounces of unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup gluten free all purpose flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum


  1. Melt margarine and chocolate over the stove top. I kept it around medium, sometimes moving the heat down to low. You want to stir during most of the time as well.
  2. Turn off the heat, but keep the pot on the warm burner while stirring in your eggs and sugar. Mix well.
  3. Take pot off the burn now and add in the vanilla.
  4. Finally, flour in the flour and xanathan gum. Make sure you fold it in well so there are no chunks!
  5. Cook at 350 degrees for ~35 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
