Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • 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.
  • Xanthan Gum – If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  • Vanilla—I really recommend using pure vanilla extract rather than imitation vanilla. It will taste better using pure vanilla extract. You can also use vanilla paste. I like Rodelle brand vanilla paste.
  • White Chocolate—I have tested my recipe with Ghirardelli and Whole Foods 360 white chocolate chips. Note: I do not recommend the Guittard brand because it tends to burn more frequently, even at 20-second intervals.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 1: In a large bowl, add your dry ingredients and whisk them to blend them.

Step 2: In a small microwave-safe bowl, gradually melt your white chocolate at 20-second intervals. Stir between each 20-second heating. You can also melt your chocolate in a double boiler if you prefer. Add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Step 3: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Step 4: Mix the ingredients to get a semi-thick gluten free brownie batter. Feel free to add white or dark chocolate chips.

📢 Sandi says: Every gluten-free flour blend has a different starch-to-grain ratio. The brand of gluten-free flour you use will affect the moisture of the batter. If your cake batter is too runny, add more flour, and if it is too thick, add more liquids.

Step 5: Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, pour in the brownie batter, and spread it out. If you prefer, you can use this gluten-free baking spray that I love.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is white chocolate gluten free?

Most white chocolate is gluten free. My favorite brands are Ghirardelli, Whole Foods360 brand, and Nestle.

What white chocolate melts the best?

If you want the smoothest melting white chocolate, I highly recommend Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers.

Why did the white chocolate burn?

If your white chocolate burned, it means you heated it too long at one time. To prevent this, I encourage you to melt your chocolate in the microwave at 20-second intervals. Note: I do not recommend the Guittard brand because it has a higher tendency to burn even at 20-second intervals.

How long will these brownies keep fresh?

These white chocolate brownies will last up to 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Can you freeze these brownies?

These brownies can easily be frozen in a freezer-safe zip bag. They will keep up to four months in the freezer.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • Preheat your oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, add your dry ingredients and whisk them to blend them all together.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, gradually melt your white chocolate at 20-second intervals. Stir between each 20-second heating. You can also melt your chocolate in a double boiler if you prefer. Add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn’t mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. It is hard to make this dairy-free because white chocolate has milk. If you can find dairy-free white chocolate that melts well, you could technically make this dairy-free with vegan butter and dairy-free chocolate.
  4. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the brownies. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the brownies need to bake longer.
  5. These brownies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.
