Double Chocolate Skillet Brownies (Gluten-Free)

Nicolette Stramara


With a perfect crinkle top, fudgy center and melty chocolate chips in every bite, these decadent brownies are loaded with rich, double chocolate goodness – and they’re made with ingredients you can feel good about. Swapping traditional all-purpose flour for almond meal keeps them gluten-free, and by using vegan-friendly butter, they make a heavenly dairy-free dessert too. Though divine on their own, these intensely gooey treats also go well topped with vanilla ice cream or a homemade dairy-free whipped cream.
