Super Good, Super Simple Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

I am reminded again that great things often come from a simple, easy recipe. Brownies from scratch that are just about as gooey and fudgy as the glutened box kind - but easily dairy and gluten-free. Made with common ingredients.

Beat together oil, cocoa, sugar, eggs and flour. Pour it into a pan and bake for about 25 minutes. Cut and eat some rich, chewy, chocolatey-ness (chocolatey-mess?). Want some special extra-dark? Use dark cocoa powder for some ultra chocolate craziness!

Side note: I wonder if it would work - coconut oil, cocoa, honey, eggs, coconut and/or almond flour?!? Maybe I should try that, so my sugar-and-grain-free followers aren't offended ;).

But, for now, the best attempt at brownies for me . . . 

Fudgey Chocolate Brownies (Gluten, Dairy, Soy*, Corn-Free)
Hanunyah Creation

1 cup oil
1 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups flour

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Beat together all ingredients. Pour into a 9x13" pan**.

3. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, depending on size of pan.

*It is up to you to be sure that what kind of oil you use is soy-free, if that is an allergen in your house.
**Depending on how thick you want your brownies to be, you may use different sizes of pans. Just know that the smaller the pan, the longer the baking time.

These would be great for parties, gatherings, or a simple weeknight dessert. This may also be used as a base recipe for other ideas, such as cream cheese swirl brownies, brownie bread pudding, etc.

Feel free to share this recipe (and any others), as long as you leave a link back to my blog. THANKS!

  1. What type of flour????

    1. I typically use fine white rice flour, but recently we've made them successfully with oat flour.


Questions? Comments? Suggestions? I like hearing from you!

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
