*NOTE: How To Choose The Right Chocolate For These Brownies
You can use any type of chocolate in these gluten free brownies. For sweeter brownies, use semisweet chocolate. For a more intensely chocolate brownie experience, opt for dark chocolate, ranging from 70 to 85%, depending on just how dark you fancy things. Or if you’re indecisive, opt for what author Josh Weissman refers to as “a nice balance” and do half dark chocolate and half semisweet chocolate. Those of you embracing a paleo lifestyle (with a slight cheat here and there), you’ll want to pay close attention to the chocolate’s sugar content.

If you're searching for a moist, rich, decadent non-wheat, non-refined white sugar fudgy brownie recipe, this is the one! This gluten free brownies recipe rivals my decade-old go-to brownie recipe—you can't tell the difference. Easy to whip up and delicious. A definite keeper. I used semi-sweet chocolate.
These gluten-free brownies were moist and rich with chocolate flavor. I don't believe anyone would know they are gluten free.
The baking time was spot on and lining the pan with parchment made them easy to remove and then cut. It took about 5 minutes to beat the eggs and coconut sugar until it was thick and pale. I chose to use half semisweet chocolate and half dark chocolate. If making them again, I would use 75% semisweet and 25% dark. Although the recipe has 1 cup coconut sugar the brownies aren't that sweet.
