Gluten Free Coconut Almond BrowniesA light gluten free brownie that is still super moist and fudgy. Whether you follow a #glutenfree diet or not, you will love these brownies.

I had some leftover young coconut meat after opening a can to make Javanese Rose Dawet and incorporated it into these tropical themed brownies with coconut, almond and mango flavors. You can use whatever chocolate you have about. I used bits and pieces of various flavored chocolate to equal 7 1/2 oz. Some plain 85% cacao, some with mango and some with mint. All the different kinds of flavored chocolate worked together. After all chocolate is chocolate and all chocolate lovers will love this rich, but light brownie. With just almond meal and coconut, this flourless gluten free brownie is super fudgy and light.

If you’re gluten free, try some of these other treats!

Gluten Free Recipes

It is important to let these cool completely before trying to remove from the pan or slice. Without the binding of flour, they will break apart if the proteins are not able to relax and seize.

  1. Coconut meat , mango juice , all sound interesting in this fudge brownie . The different chocolates too must be giving a twist to the flavor . Good one Mir .

  2. We mostly eat the tender coconut meat as such, this is a lovely way to use it. Do you get Coconut meal as well? The brownies look so sinful Mir, I could eat it all in one shot!
