Freedom Brownies Recipe

These clean eating freedom brownies are wonderful, grain-free brownies!!

A reader on Facebook forwarded a recipe to me thinking I might enjoy a new type of brownie. A brownie made with coconut flour!

Three of these Clean Eating Freedom Brownies are stacked on top of each other on a round, white plate.

Not being one to turn down a good brownie, I took a peek at the recipe. It looked lovely, and with butter, it would have been clean. But since I’m not eating any dairy at the moment, I had to make a change in the source of fat for these. And because I did that, I had to have more egg to help it bind. I also like a heavier vanilla flavor so….. well…. you get the idea. I changed the recipe.

But my, oh my….what a great treat! Something I absolutely needed for my sanity today…

P.S. – These are gluten-free, dairy-free, AND grain-free! Oh, and did I mention they are DA-ANG good!!????

But it’s also only fair to say that even though these are called “Freedom Brownies”, that doesn’t mean they are free of calories. These are definitely a once-in-a-while treat.

  • cup coconut flour
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • cup coconut oil
  • 5 large eggs
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract, non sugar added


  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut flour and cocoa powder.
  • Whisk in the coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Blend well.
  • Pour batter into a greased baking dish (mine was about 7×11), and bake at 350 F. for about 30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool. This is important because they tend to fall apart easily when warm, making it difficult to get them out of the pan.

      I haven’t tried it, but It should work.

  4. Aren’t eggs considered dairy?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      No. They come from a chicken. They are poultry.

  5. graciouspantry says:

    Sorry, but I really have no idea. You’d have to ask a dietitian.

  6. graciouspantry says:

    I haven’t tried it that way, but I’m sure it would be fine

  7. graciouspantry says:

    It’s pretty mild, actually. But then I’m used to putting coconut in everything. All I tasted was the chocolate.

  8. Dimmyhome says:

    Tiffany, do you have any recipes using organic rice flour? Do you also have a clean eating recipe for empanada especially pumpkin ones?. Thank you love your site. Merry Christmas to your family.

  15. Tammie Moran Smith says:

    HI I made these for my grandmother who now has a gluten allergy. My whole family liked them. They were not super sweet, but good.

  16. graciouspantry says:

    They were very moist for me. Could be an altitude difference or even difference between our ovens. You can always add some apple sauce for moisture. 1/4 to 1/2 cup.

  17. graciouspantry says:

    Hope you enjoy it!

    I just took these out of the oven! Yum!! These will definitely get me through a tough sweet tooth craving! I did use an electric mixer for a minute or two and the batter was almost frothy. Brownies had enough moisture and really arent falling apart at all. Perfect!
