Chocolate Cherry Brownies that are Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free


This recipe! Mmm. Chocolate, cherries and brownies are three of my very favorite things. So, a combination of each is a trifecta I can’t pass up. 


I have been trying to cut back on my gluten intake due to my super annoying gut issues, but I have a huge sweet tooth. My love of chocolate and cherries makes this recipe a keeper. These brownies are good. Real good.

Gluten and Dairy Free Ingredients for Chocolate Cherry Brownies




4 large eggs
¼ cup  melted coconut oil
½ cup raw honey
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup cocoa powder
½ cup coconut flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup Maraschino cherries


Tools You’ll Need to Gather:


Large mixing bowl
8 x 8 Baking Pan



I like to use local raw honey for these brownies. You can use regular honey if you wish, but have you ever tried local raw honey? It’s got many health benefits (I mention a few of them in a post on my Cool Bean Living site here).


If you aren’t sure where to find it in your area, there’s a national local raw honey locator you can use. 


You can use either fresh or frozen cherries. If using frozen cherries, let them thaw completely at room temperature before chopping and adding to the batter.


Tip: Coconut flour tends to be very absorbent; adding 2 tablespoons of the Maraschino cherry juice to the batter will keep it moist.
