I don’t know what part of the country you are in right now, but here in Michigan, we are under a “Shelter in Place” order. Meaning, we can only leave our house for essential jobs, groceries or picking up medicine and it’s looking like this order will last until at least April 30th, if not longer. Yes, I am going insane! So I am doing what a lot of people are doing right now, I am eating my feelings! Since I had never made brownies from scratch, I decided to try it! I made these gluten free brownies with white chocolate chips and they are delicious!

Gluten Free Brownies
When I first set out to make gluten free brownies, I was planning on using chocolate chips. However, I only had white chocolate chips on hand. Being that we are basically on lockdown, going to the store to get milk chocolate chips was not a smart idea. So I used what I had. They turned out pretty good!
Gluten Free Brownies with White Chocolate Chips
Delicious recipe for gluten free brownies with white chocolate chips.
- 1/2 Cup Salted Butter melted
- 1 TBSP Avocado Oil
- 1/2 Cup White Sugar
- 1 TBSP White Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar packed
- 1 TBSP Brown Sugar packed
- 2 large Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Cup Gluten Free Flour
- 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- 1 Bag White Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8 pan with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper.
Using your microwave, melt the butter completely. Add the melted butter, avocado oil, and all of sugars to your mixing bowl. Mix completely for about 1 minute. Next add your eggs and vanilla. Mix for another minute.
Next add your gluten free flour (I like this brand a lot) and unsweetened cocoa powder to the bowl and mix with a spoon until it is just incorporated. It is important to not over mix. I have discovered that gluten free flour does not like to be over mixed!
Gently fold in half the bag of white chocolate chips.
Pour the gluten free brownie mix into the prepared pan. Top with the remaining white chocolate chips.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Allow your brownies to cool in the pan before cutting.
So…How Did they Turn Out??
Um…so delicious! I decided to use both brown sugar and white sugar because I remember seeing a chart once of chocolate chip cookies (stay with me here)…and the one thing that I remember was the cookies that used both sugars were the most desired cookies. So I figured the same would hold true with brownies! What did I know? I never made brownies from scratch before!
Not really! I was expected the white chocolate chips to melt. I was envisioning it being a melted white chocolate mess on the top and then I would swirl it with a toothpick or the tip of a knife when I took it out of the oven. That didn’t happen! Nevertheless, they turned out really good! The nice thing about this recipe is that you can totally add whatever you would like to it. I saw Andes Mint chips at the store. I think that would be delicious!
