The Best Homemade Gluten-Free Cashew Brownies

Jump to the Recipe
When I started baking, one of the first recipes my mum shared with me was for walnut brownies. Today, that recipe remains one of my favorites, not only because of its sentimental value, but also because it’s so easy to make.

Gluten-free chocolate brownies topped with cashews make a delicious dessert or snack. We share the recipe: https://foodal.com/recipes/desserts/gluten-free-cashew-brownies/

When my boyfriend Juan was diagnosed with celiac disease a year ago, I knew I had to create a gluten-free version of this recipe. Substituting the usual wheat flour with a gluten-free flour blend, the results are fantastic – and it’s virtually impossible to guess that these brownies are gluten-free!

This is the perfect sweet treat to make for last-minute get-togethers, or whenever you find yourself with a little free time and a hankering for something scrumptious.

I like my brownies with something crunchy on top, so I added chopped cashews for a nice contrast in both color and texture.

If you prefer other types, feel free to use the nuts of your choice. I recommend either walnuts or almonds – they go great with chocolate!

If you prefer not to add any type of nuts at all, that’s also fine. Either way, these brownies are fantastic!

Cooking by the Numbers…

Step 1 – Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Mise en Place

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line a rectangular baking pan with parchment paper, to create a sling. This will make it easier to remove the brownies from the pan.

Next, get your ingredients ready.

Measure out all of the ingredients: butter, sugar, dark chocolate, eggs, vanilla extract, gluten-free flour, baking powder, and nuts.

Chop the chocolate into small pieces so it will be easy to melt.

If you are using them, chop the cashews or your favorite type of nuts into tiny pieces. I prefer to use a raw, unsalted variety, but salted nuts can be nice for a bit of contrast in the flavor as well.

Step 2 – Prepare the Chocolate Mixture

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat, and then add the sugar. Continue stirring over low heat until the sugar has dissolved completely.

Step 3 – Prepare the Flour and Egg Mixture

Sift the gluten-free flour and baking powder together in a large bowl.

Once cool and firm, slice into evenly sized squares. I got about 20 squares in total.

These brownies can keep for up to three days at room temperature, or for up to three months in the freezer.
