Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Brownies

High in fiber and gluten-free, coconut flour is made from ground and fried coconut meat. It can be a great sub for regular flour (but not always in equal amounts) and adds a little coconutty flavor.

Ingredients

2 sticks (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the foil

1 1/2 cups coconut flour

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped

2 cups sugar

4 large eggs, slightly beaten

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on at least 2 sides. Butter the foil.
  2. Whisk together the coconut flour, cocoa powder and salt in a medium bowl. Melt the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently. Let cool slightly. Stir in the sugar and eggs. Add the coconut flour mixture, and stir to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs, 30 to 35 minutes.
  3. Let the brownies cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack. Use the foil overhang to help lift them out of the pan. Cut into 16 squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
