Meet my Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Brownies… Dark, fudgy, dangerously moreish and perfect for the Easter chocolate binge which is fast approaching (well… Easter doesn’t have to be all about eggs does it?). This gluten free brownie recipe is made with dark orange chocolate and ‘spiked’ with a little extra orange oil for a truly citrus-infused experience. I made mine with Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange although it does have a ‘may contain’ wheat label, so if you are Coeliac, you should use an alternative such as Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Dark Chocolate Orange bar, Lindt Orange Intense bar or Tesco Zesty Orange bar. If you like your chocolate a little bit fruity, this one’s for you.
I’ve been meaning to make these decadent mouthfuls for ages and actually bought the Chocolate Oranges when they were on offer at Christmas, but then life got in the way and they just didn’t happen. All power to my self control though… Chocolate Orange in the house for 3 months uneaten? Go me!!!!
Trust me though, these beauties are worth the wait and the self-control. They pack a serious chocolate punch… enough to top up the empty winter serotonin banks with one square and because they are made with dark chocolate and offset with a hint of tangy orange, they are definitely less sweet than a lot of brownies.
Although I made these gluten free brownies with already infused orange chocolate you could just add extra orange extract to the mix alongside bog-standard chocolate, but be absolutely sure to choose dark chocolate. It makes for a more intense flavour experience and brings out the citrus beautifully.
I am also fairly certain that they could be made with ordinary wheat flour, although (for obvious reasons) I haven’t tried it, but if it’s gluten free brownies you are hunting down, this recipe is both wheat free and Coeliac friendly. Sub the butter for dairy free spread and use dairy free dark chocolate and you also have yourself a delicious dairy free treat too. Upgrade and make it a full-on chocolate-lovers dessert. Grab a bowl, and top with your favourite ice cream or custard and devour.
The eagle-eyed among you will notice there’s a bit of a major change with this post. After nearly 6 years of blogging, I have finally found a route to making printable recipe cards on my Blogger blogging platform. I’m ecstatic actually! There seem to be a million and one app options for recipe developers who use WordPress, but (as far as I can see) virtually none for the rest of us. Yet it’s so important that you lovely lot can access my recipes in a way that is easy to use in the kitchen.
I am hoping that over time, I will be able to back-track across my old recipe posts and update as many as possible to include a printable version and I’d love you to let me know which Gluten Free Alchemist recipes you want me to update next. So if you have a favourite, please leave me a comment so that I can make sure the best recipes get updated first.
Of course, if you do make these deliciously fudgy gluten free Chocolate Orange Brownies, then make my day and let me know about it. Even better… take a photo and tag me in on social media.
