Frosted brownies (gluten & sugar free)

Brownies[Update: Due to allergies to dairy and eggs, I can’t eat frosted brownies anymore.  But they’re a nice gluten-free option so I’ve left the recipe on the blog]

One of the troubles with being both gluten-free and sugar-free is that it makes desserts practically impossible.  I can never eat them at holiday parties or bakeries, which normally isn’t a problem but sometimes my sweet tooth kicks in.

Thanks to all the sweet, gluteny they’ll-likely-go-straight-to-your-waistline-but-totally-worth-it holiday temptations from last month, I’ve been in need of a chocolate fix.

I wanted a nice big slice of chocolate cake, but this frosted brownie and a big glass of milk did the trick just fine.

Allergen/Sensitivity Info: Gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free, and egg-free.

Yields: About six slices (or less, depending how how much you’re in need of chocolate).



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix together mashed bananas, applesauce, Splenda, butter, and vanilla.  Then, add in gluten-free flour, chocolate, and baking soda.  Mix until mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour batter into a pre-greased 9×9 backing dish.
  4. Bake for about 35 minutes.  The brownies should still be soft but shouldn’t jiggle when you shake the pan (if it looks like Jell-O, you’re not done).
  5. Let cool before adding frosting.  Heap on as much as you like.
  6. Slice and enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk.
