Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flour Brownies

These gluten-free buckwheat flour brownies are fudgy and chocolatey. They really call for a tall glass of ice-cold milk. In the big wide world of brownie recipes, you have three texture options:  chewy, cakey or fudgy. These brownies are fudgy!

And in my opinion, fudgy really is the best brownie texture. Geoff was obsessed with these and single-handedly ate half the pan. I love that they are naturally sweetened with coconut sugar and naturally gluten-free. Buckwheat flour has no gluten!

It’s summertime and we’re getting ready to go up to the cottage. I can’t wait to be at the lake! I’m really looking forward to using this time to recharge and refresh. Life has been really busy.  I know that really truly resting will help renew my creativity and provide more inspiration for the work I do.

Among these, there is physical rest, mental rest, spiritual rest and creative rest. Creative rest is what I’m really seeking on our vacation this year. I still plan to do some cooking or baking, not for the blog, but just for fun. I also took some cookbooks out of the library recently just to enjoy browsing through them. I hope to find some really engrossing fiction books to read as well.  Are you able to get away this summer? I hope you can find ways to get some creative rest too.

Get Creative! Here are some delicious brownie add ins:

  • Nut butter swirl
    6 tbsp peanut butter
    2 tbsp maple syrup
    Pinch of salt

  • Cream cheese swirl
  • Various nuts: walnuts, pecans, peanuts
  • Peppermint extract (1 tsp)
  • Crushed pretzels
  • Top them with chocolate icing 
  • Flakey salt
  • Nutella swirl Jam swirl

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flour Brownie Recipe Notes

Health benefits of buckwheat flour.

Is buckwheat flour gluten free?

Yes, buckwheat flour is gluten-free. Surprisingly, buckwheat is closely related to the rhubarb plant. Buckwheat is not a grain at all!

Where can I buy buckwheat flour?

Buckwheat flour can be purchased at most major grocery stores (typically found in the health or gluten-free section) I purchased “Bob’s Red Mill” Buckwheat flour at my local grocery store. If you can’t find it locally you could order it online from the Bob’s Red Mill website or find it at a specialty health food store.

How to Make Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flour Brownies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a 8×8 pan by lining with parchment paper or brushing with butter.

In a small bowl, stir together buckwheat flour, unsweetened cocoa powder and salt.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and 1 cup of chocolate chips together. In a medium-size bowl, whisk eggs and coconut sugar together and add in the melted butter and chocolate when it has cooled slightly.

Combine dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until no dry clumps remain.  Stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

Pour brownie batter into the prepared 8×8 pan. (*Note: I originally used a 9×13 pan for this recipe and that’s what you see in the photos but I adjusted it to an 8×8 pan for a better result)

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the middle is set and a toothpick comes out clean.

My favourite way to have brownies is with a nut or seed butter swirl. These brownies are delicious with tahini. To add a swirl: In a small bowl stir together 6 tbsp of tahini, 2 tbsp maple syrup and a pinch of salt. Drop 6 equally placed dollops of the tahini mixture on the brownie batter.

Using a chopstick or a thin utensil, slowly swirl the tahini mixture around to create a beautiful swirl pattern on the brownies.

Hi! I’m Christy, a happy wife and mother to three boys, a nutritionist, a food lover and a Canadian. Creating and experimenting in the kitchen is my idea of an afternoon well spent. To me, a clean kitchen is an empty canvas of possibility and that means my kitchen never stays clean for long. My dream is that one or more of the recipes I share here will inspire you, perhaps even becoming a cherished family favourite.
