These are really delicious - what a treat to have brownies again!
At only half a cup of the almond meal, they are not too costly, either. Im taking them to Christmas dinner, along with raspberry sorbet.
Lauren Abdulrahman January 28, 2012
These are so easy and so delicious! I am making them tonight for the 2nd time. Family loves them!

I am allergic to there a substitute for corn starch?
Bob's Red Mill November 21, 2012
Arrowroot Starch is a great cup-for-cup substitute for cornstarch.
Brandy K November 30, 2012
I add just one egg & another scant 1/4 cup of almond meal to get chewy brownies. Then I cook them on a standard muffin pan to make sure they all have maximum \"brownie crust\" ! YUMMY!

Why do the edges rise up and then the center sinks and the edges get a bit too done?
Bob's Red Mill March 19, 2013
Most likely the brownies are baking at too high a temperature so the exterior appears done while the interior has not fully baked, causing the center to cave. I suggest using an oven thermometer to double-check the heat setting on your oven.

My first low carb dessert!!!! Seriously? OMG...totally takes care of that craving for chocolate. Thanks so much
Colette April 24, 2013
I made these with flax meal instead of almond meal. They are delicious!
Sarah June 2, 2013
Very good made these tonight, used confectioners sugar/brown sugar(mix of both). Also added PB & Chocolate chips, otherwise followed religiously. Tasted great thank you for sharing..

If I add flax meal do I need to use less almond flour? And is it possible to use only egg whites or do I need to use the whole egg?
Bob's Red Mill January 20, 2014
Almond Meal/Flour and Flaxseed Meal can be used one for one. Therefore, if you want to use 50% Flaxseed Meal, you would use 50% Almond Meal/Flour. If wanting to use egg whites in place of whole eggs, you would use 4 eggs.

How can these be low carb with the use of the Evaporated Cane Sugar?
Bob's Red Mill February 3, 2014
Our Low Carb section contains recipes with serving sizes that have a carbohydrate count of 5% (or less) of the daily value. This is not dependent to the type of sugar used.

Oh my goodness these were AMAZING!! They came out gooey and perfect. My hubby even liked them and he's a brownie pro! Thank you Bob's Red Mill, I don't know what I would do without your products or recipes. I will be making these often, love love loved!
Jennifer February 13, 2014
Wow! These are delicious! They aren't heavy, but they aren't cake-like either. Wonderfully chewy on top and around the edges too. Thanks for the great recipe!
Claire February 20, 2014
Is there a substitute for evaporated cane sugar? Perhaps brown/white sugar combo or maple syrup?
Bob's Red Mill February 21, 2014
You may use brown sugar in place of cane sugar, 1:1. When wanting to use maple syrup, use up to 3/4 cup of syrup per 1 cup sugar. Maple syrup will increase liquid content. By adding additional corn starch, the extra liquid will be absorbed. Keep in mind; we have not tested this.
SeattleAlan March 10, 2014
Excellent brownies! I added 1/2 cup chopped pecans, as I put nuts in almost anything like this. Very satisfying and taking care of the sweet tooth. Gluten free items like this are so expensive otherwise, so it is nice to have these available!
Bonita April 25, 2014
oh so delicious very chocolatey i added pecans yum!
Erica May 25, 2014
Can stevia be used in place of the cane sugar?
Bob's Red Mill May 28, 2014
We have not tested the use of Stevia in place of the sugar called for in our Almond Brownies recipe. It is important to note that Stevia can not be used in place of sugar 1 for 1 and you will need to compensate for this.
Danell June 17, 2014
I see comment about using Stevia, but how about Splenda, have you tested in Bob's kitchen with it? If so can you recommend conversion? Is it 1:1? Thank you!
Bob's Red Mill June 19, 2014
We have not tested our Almond Brownies recipe with Splenda. However, the granulated version of Splenda can be used in place of the sugar called for in a recipe, one for one. No other adjustments are necessary.
Judy July 15, 2014
Can you use coconut flour instead of almond meal or flax
Bob's Red Mill July 17, 2014
Flaxseed Meal can be used in place of Almond Meal 1 for 1. Coconut Flour has a high absorption rate and you will need to decrease the amount used. Keep in mind that we have not tested this preparation.
Gloria Uhler July 30, 2014

Is there a substitue sweetener that I can use instead of cane sugar??? I am trying to avoid all types of sugar as much as possible. Any suggestions???
Bob's Red Mill August 19, 2014
You may be interested in using Splenda as a substitute for the sugar called for in our Almond Brownies recipe. Keep in mind that we have not tested this substitution.
Jessica September 29, 2014
Wow! This came out amazing. I did however reduce the sugar to 1/3 cup and it was the perfect amount of sweetness.
Jill February 1, 2015
Can you use Coconut oil instead of butter ?
Bob's Red Mill February 3, 2015
Yes, you may use melted coconut oil in place of the butter called for in this recipe, one for one.
SN February 5, 2015
Very nice and lovely! I used flaxseed instead of eggs, used 1/4 Cup yogurt and cut back on 1/4 C butter. I added just 3/4 C sugar and reduced the cocoa a bit. With all these changes, they still came out well. Thank you for such a good recipe.
Bernadine Lightfoot February 11, 2015
Wow! Made these brownies and they were completely amazing! Twenty thumbs up. I substituted the sugar for 3/4 xylitol and took the batch to a gathering.... No-one guessed it was grain and sugar free.
Jennifer Welsh February 24, 2015
This recipe did not work! Calls for 9" square pan-not nearly enough batter for that size! More like 5"! Brownies were flat and greasy. Very disappointed! :(
Monica March 11, 2015
These brownies are delicious. I recommend using high quality cocoa powder to get that rich chocolate flavour. I did cut the sugar by about a quarter cup and I topped it with walnuts. A truly decadent and superb recipe. YUM!
