Hi friends and happy Tuesday! Popping in real quick to bring you my latest obsession: Flourless Fudge Brownies!!! This easy recipe is naturally gluten-free and made with healthier ingredients like coconut oil, dark chocolate, coconut sugar, and almond milk, making them a great candidate for days you’re craving something sweet, but also want to keep it clean(ish).

A few VERY important notes about this recipe:

  1. I highly suggest following this recipe exactly as written. I’ve tested these brownies over and over again to ensure the recipe is 100%, so if you change something – even the tiniest thing (!) – your results may be completely different than the brownies you see here. Small changes can make BIG differences in the baking world. Moral of the story? Stick to the recipe and you’re golden!
  2. These brownies are served chilled, and must be cooled first in the pan, then again in the fridge for a few hours. This dual cooling process allows the fudgy texture to develop, and is a MUST. If you serve the brownies before chilling them, the texture will be more foamy and less fudgy :(
  3. Since these brownies are chilled, they’re very make-ahead friendly! You can actually make them up to 3 days in advance – just keep them covered in the fridge until needed.
  4. When you remove your brownies from your oven the edges should be set, but the center should still be just a little wiggly. They firm up a great deal and won’t be gooey when you cut into them.

Fudgy Flourless Brownies made with healthy ingredients!


  • 12 ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (coconut sugar may be used instead)
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (F). Line an 8x8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Spray parchment paper and any exposed pan with non-stick spray; set aside.
  2. Combine the chopped chocolate, coconut oil, and almond milk in a medium saucepan over low heat; melt, stirring frequently, until chocolate and coconut oil are completely melted. Add in the sugar and whisk smooth; remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then add in the vanilla. Fold in cocoa powder. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until the edges are firm and the center is only slightly wobbly. Cool brownies completely in the pan set on top of a wire rack. Place pan in the fridge for at least 4 hours before cutting and serving. These brownies are to be served to cold and should be stored in the fridge until needed - up to 3 days.


For best results, this recipe should be followed exactly as written. When cut into 18 brownies, each piece is 185 calories. Brownies must be chilled before serving.

P.S. Whenever I post a healthier recipe a lot of folks tend to come out of the woodwork, pointing out how or why said recipe is not healthy. So here’s my response ahead of time: this recipe is a healthier brownie… keyword BROWNIE!!! Yes, it has calories; yes, it has a little sugar; yes; it is a brownie :)

    I have died and gone to brownie heaven! Thank you for this recipe, Ashley. We made them last night and after waiting patiently for them to chill were rewarded with melt in your mouth fudgy goodness. Definitely a new favorite.

    Hi. I am looking forward to making this. When you say dark chocolate, would that be the same as semi-sweet? Or is there a certain %% cocoa you use? Thank you!

      Hello Doreen! It’s folded in after the vanilla, as noted in the instructions 😉 Please let me know if it’s not showing up on your end and I’ll look into it.

      Hey Amy. I have no experience baking with stevia, so unfortunately I’m unsure how it would turn out. If you give it a try, I’d love to hear the results :)

    You have no idea how nicely these turned out! They were so perfect. Everyone who tried them said they were so good and light – they didn’t get the same heavy feeling that comes when eating regular brownies! I was so happy with the results that I made another batch the next day and took it with me to a dinner party and served it with coconut ice cream. Dessert heaven..
