The kids love our Free Brownies recipe. We call them that so we don’t have to say “dairy free, gluten free, egg free, corn free brownies” which can be a lot at times.
The two gluten/dairy free boys convinced me to buy this pan at Bed Bath and Beyond when we went to pick up a few items. They even cashed in their reward points (for good behavior etc.) to get it. Since it was on clearance for $10 instead of $30, I couldn’t say no.

This is really easy to make. Simply mix the dry ingredients, and add in the wet ingredients. Bake these in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. Personally, I still spray the pan with non-stick spray, even though the pan is “non-stick”. The funny thing is, even though we sprayed plenty of non-stick spray, these were very hard to get out of the pan. We used skewers and lots of banging. We breathed quite the sigh of release when they came out.
These brownies are simply delicious, tasty, and amazing. We also froze several to see if they would hold up, and the results were very positive. I found that with the frozen brownies, they don’t even have to be reheated to be enjoyed. It’s like eating yummy frozen fudge!
Fun Tip: These brownies are a fantastic foundational recipe. Build on it, customize it, and make it your own. You can add frosting or glaze, coffee, even cayenne, to create a whole new flavor profile.
