The Most Extra Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Brownies

There are many things I love about my job.

Running this blog means I get to create food in a way that I never dreamed of before.

A huge piece of food photography is staging the food to look like it belongs in a magazine. And to accomplish that goal, everything has to look its absolute best, most extra self. These gluten free triple chocolate brownies are no exception.

Growing up, I was obsessed with brownies, as most kids are. I always wanted to try those prepackaged brownies that looked so dang extra with chocolate frosting on top and colorful rainbow sprinkles.

But did my whole-foods conscious parents ever buy those at the grocery store? No they did not. (Looking back, probably a blessing in disguise).

So here I am, 20 some years later, taking full advantage of the opportunity to take brownies the extra mile. Pun intended

Frosting + Salt

In my book, the best desserts have the perfect balance of salty and sweet. These brownies alone have a wonderful mix of the two flavors, but the homemade (2 ingredient) frosting and flake salt sprinkled on top are a true game changer.

These gluten free triple chocolate brownies are the kind of dessert you bring to a potluck and leave with an empty pan. They are the kind you could stick some candles in and could easily take the place of a birthday cake.

So what are you waiting for? Grab the ingredients, a tall glass of milk and treat yo self!

Must Have Ingredients:

There are a couple of must have ingredients I use to make these gluten free triple chocolate brownies both soy and gluten free. You can click the links below to check the items out on Amazon, or find them at your local grocery store.

If you don’t have a sensitivity to soy or wheat/gluten to worry about, feel free to substitute them for your favorite brand of chocolate chips, cocoa, and flour for this recipe!

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 912 brownies 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: American



For the Brownies:

  • 1 cup soy free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup gluten free flour
  • one fourth cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup soy free chocolate chips

Toppings & Garnish:

  • 1/2 cup soy free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tsp flake salt


  1. Line your square brownie pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350. In a double boiler, melt your butter and chocolate chips until smooth then cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together eggs and sugar until light in color. Slowly incorporate the cooled chocolate and butter mixture into the eggs and sugar, whisking until smooth. Add vanilla and mix.
  3. In a smaller bowl mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix just until smooth. Mix in the remaining chocolate chips, pour into your baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into a corner of the brownies! We want the center to remain a bit less solid as it will continue to cook.
  4. While the brownies are cooling, make the icing. Melt your chocolate chips and butter in the same double boiler. Pour into a pyrex dish and cool in the fridge until it has set fully. Using a stand mixer, beat the frosting until it is light and fluffy. Spread generously over brownies, sprinkle with flake salt, and enjoy!
