Ingredient notes:

Pictures of the brownie bites ingredients.
  • Gluten free flour blend – I tested this recipe using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend and King Arthur’s Measure for Measure Gluten Free Blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work; I just have not tested other flours, and I can not guarantee the recipe will work if you use other mixes.
  • Xanthan Gum – If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  • Non-dairy milk – I used almond milk, but other dairy-free kinds of milk will work. I do not recommend canned coconut milk.
  • Oil – I recommend coconut oil or canola oil.
  • Eggs – Size large.
  • Pure vanilla extract – I do not recommend imitation vanilla.

Recipe step-by-step directions:

The brownie dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 1: Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend them.

To measure your gluten free flour, I recommend using the spoon method or leveling method. In a perfect world, people weigh their flour, but most do not own a kitchen scale. Every gluten-free flour blend has a different weight, making a scale even trickier.

Put the measuring scoop into the flour and fill. Do not pack the flour. Use a knife to scrape along the top to remove the extra flour.

You can also use a spoon to fill the measuring cup. Use a knife to level along the top to remove the extra flour.

Step 2: In a smaller bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk to blend.

Step 3: Pour the wet and dry ingredients together and mix. You can also use a standing mixer if you prefer.

HINT: Now is the time if you want to add mini chocolate chips or pieces of chopped nuts.

Step 4: This is what your gluten free brownie batter will look like in the bowl.

An empty mini muffin pan.

Step 5: Grab a mini muffin pan. Either spray it with coconut oil or add mini muffin paper liners.

Step 6: Pour brownie batter into each muffin section. Fill 3/4 full with the batter.

Step 7: Bake at 350º F for 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the holes.

Step 8: To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of a brownie. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the brownies need to bake longer.

Step 9: Decorate as you like! I used a tube of green icing that I bought at my local grocery store and some sprinkles to make trees.

Variations:

There are so many fun ways to vary this recipe. You can also decorate them based on what the holiday is!

  • Add in some white or milk chocolate chips.
  • Drizzle melted white chocolate over the tops and add sprinkles. Be sure to check to ensure the sprinkles are gluten free!
  • Add frosting to the tops in cute little swirls.
  • Add a teaspoon of peanut butter to each cup of batter, then cover it up with more brownie batter. This will bake in a creamy peanut butter middle!

  1. Hi! Just found your site, and love it!

    Are the chocolate chips supposed to be melted? They are awfully big for mini-muffin sizes. They also fall to the bottom of the batter and they’re hard to keep mixed up in the batter. My batter was very runny. I’ll probably get 48 bites out of it. I don’t do a lot of GF baking, so I’d appreciate any insight. Thanks!

    1. Hi Barbara,
      I don’t melt the chocolate…I use the mini sized chips. What gluten free flour blend did you use? If your batter was really runny, I suspect it needs a little more flour. Every blend is different b/c they all have different grain-to-starch ratios.

  2. 5 stars
    These were simply amazing. I Akzo used KA m to m and I wanted to say a little humor here of in step #2 it appears there’s a dinosaur it’s k I d of sideways but it made me laugh and thought of , blessings.

    1. I imagine using all brown sugar would work. I have not tested using just brown sugar nor using coconut sugar. Coconut sugar has a higher melting point than brown sugar so I think using it would mess with the brownie texture.

    “Oh Sandi” these are great!! I did add walnuts and it is like eating a brownie. I don’t know if they need icing because they are chocolaty and moist on their own. The recipe I printed said 1/4 Cup salt and figured that wasn’t right so I did add 1/2 tsp. I got 24 minis and 6 muffin tops. I will frost a few and see what the difference is. My husband didn’t know they were gf. LOL

    1. Hi Sue, good question. I added this in for people. I recommend a light oil like canola typically for baking…but coconut oil is also delicious. I would stay away from olive oil or any oils with a savory flavor.
