These Chocolate Fudge Brownies Is Free-From What?
Most people are sensitive, intolerant or even allergic to processed foods ie carbs full of sugar, dairy, potatoes, bread, grains and nuts without realising it.
You only realise how threatening some foods are to your body when you cut them out of your diet. This was the case for myself!
Free-from refers to foods that cause intolerences or allergens, but allergens are life threatening whereas intolerances aren’t. However, both cause equal amount of pain, suffering and grievances to the person suffering.

Chef's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Notes & Tips
These Chocolate Fudge Brownies freeze well, so feel free to make a double batch and pop them in the freezer. They're particularly great for picnics and for any big kid on dark miserable rainy days.
I think these are best made with regular butter, but don't let me stop you using dairy-free butter. The texture is the same but the taste is slightly different.
A gooey brownie always tastes better than being dry and overcooked. If you're not a fan of the gooey bit in the middle, it will set once cooled. To revive the goo just pop it in the microwave for five to ten seconds.
I usually throw in 100g of dark chocolate chips to add some crunch. The chocolate I recommend is Montezuma's Absolute Black 100% Cocoa Bar, which means you will have to smash it up in to small pieces.
Sometimes, we fancy something different so I use what's at hand ie chopped walnuts or pistachios. At other times, I deliberately buy something extravagantly yummy such as marshmallows, or if you don't mind the sugar content add some chopped up maltesers or crunchie bars etc. Feel free to use anything you fancy at the time.
Cacao powder has a milder taste compared to cocoa, either is fine to use. For low carb lovers check out Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder.
Check out my Creamy Coconut Vanilla Yogurt Recipe, it's super creamy and goes particularly well with with this Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Or, if you simple don't have the time to make yogurt, then an alternative recommendation is Coyo Coconut Yogurt.
Tools To Make Chocolate Fudge Brownie
It makes your life easier when you prepare foods with the correct kitchen appliances. Here’s what you need to get started:
Step By Step Instructions:
- Preheat the oven to gas 3, 160 C (320 F).
- Grease and line an 8 inch square baking tin with parchment paper, ensuring sides overhang.
- Melt the butter in a sauce pan.
- Allow to cool slightly before using it.
- In a large mixing bowl or your favourite mixer add the melted butter, chocolate powder, erythritol and salt, chia seeds and vanilla extract and stir.
- Add the eggs one at a time, then slowly sift in the rice flour.
- Stir until just combined, then add the smashed up chocolate or chocolate chips.
- Pour the brownie batter in the prepared tin and place in the oven.
- Bake the brownies for approximately 30-35 minutes or until they no longer wobble in the middle. Remember the middle should still be nice and gooey.
- Leave in the tin and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- These brownies are quite fragile so if you can, transfer to the fridge for an hour before cutting into squares.
- Sprinkle with your favourite toppings such as nuts or smashed sweets before serving.
