Triple Chocolate Brownies- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Refined Sugar-Free

Chocolate, chocolate and MORE chocolate. Does it get any better than that? Probably not for all of you chocoholics out there! I’m more of a caramel/ toffee kind of person, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a rich, fudgy, chocolaty treat every now and then. When I’m craving chocolate this is the only recipe that will satisfy the craving in one…who am I kidding, two bites…

Triple Chocolate Brownie

Triple Chocolate Brownies

Decadent, rich and overflowing with chocolate. These brownies are dense and chewy, spotted with gooey chocolate chips and topped with light and creamy chocolate icing. In other words, heaven, pure heaven…

Serves 9


  • 1 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (any granulated sugar should work)
  • 3/4 cup strong coffee
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy yogurt
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 drops dark chocolate liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Line 8 x 8 square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Mix brown rice flour, starches, xanthan gum, baking powder and cocoa powder together in bowl 1. Stir to combine.
