6 Ingredient Oil-Free Gluten-Free Brownies

THE BEST BROWNIES EVER even though they’re oil and gluten and dairy-free. Woah. No eggs, wheat flour, or butter. It’s crazy! I’ve made these 3 times in the last 2 weeks and they’re a hit every single time. Even Greg loves them and he normally doesn’t like sweets!


6 Ingredient Oil-Free Gluten-Free Brownies

  • Author: Liv B
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 16 brownies 1x


  • 13/4 cups light buckwheat flour (regular or dark will have a bitter earthy taste and grainy consistency. I haven’t tried with other flours yet!)
  • 11/4 cups sugar (coconut sugar, cane sugar, monk fruit sugar etc all work)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut butter (melted, runny consistency)
  • 1 cup water or plant-based milk
  • OPTIONAL: pinch of salt & chocolate chips for more chocolate!


1. Mix together all dry ingredients until combined.

2. Add coconut butter and water and stir to form a dough. It won’t be a runny batter like normal brownies!

3. Press into a parchment-lined 8×8 inch baking pan.

4. Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes. Mine usually are perfect at 32 minutes. If you have a convection (fan) oven they may need less time.

5. Allow to cool, then slice and serve!

      Wow 4th time I have made this recipe it is SO GOOD. This time I replaced the sugar with fresh date paste 1:1 with the sugar and left the milk/water out as the date paste was moist enough (dates blended with water) THANK YOU so much for your recipes 👌
