Chewy gluten-free brownies topped with colorful M&Ms! These are such a fun, easy gluten-free dessert!


  • 1/4 cup (2 oz/4 Tablespoons) butter
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil (like avocado oil, grapeseed oil, or canola oil)
  • 1 cup (200 grams) sugar
  • 2/3 cup (4 oz.) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (90 grams) gluten-free measure-for-measure flour, weighed or scooped and leveled
  • 1/4 cup (25 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch-processed or regular)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup (4 oz.) semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/31/2 cup mini M&Ms, milk chocolate M&Ms, or dark chocolate M&Ms candies


  1. Preheat The Oven & Prep The Pan. Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8×8″ metal pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Melt The Butter, Oil, Sugar & Chocolate. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, oil, sugar and 2/3 cup chocolate chips over low heat. Stir until the chocolate chips are melted and remove from heat. (The sugar will likely still look a bit grainy. This is fine!)
  3. Beat In The Eggs & Egg Yolk. Whisk in the eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, stirring to fully incorporate before adding the next egg/yolk.
  4. Add The Vanilla. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  5. Stir In The Dry Ingredients. Add the gluten-free flour blend, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Stir until just combined.
  6. Fold In The Chocolate Chips. Add the second 2/3 cup chocolate chips and fold until just evenly distributed. Transfer the brownie batter to your prepared pan and smooth the surface evenly.
  7. Sprinkle With M&Ms. Add the M&Ms to the top of the brownie batter, doing your best to distribute them evenly.
  8. Bake & Cool. Pop the brownies in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the surface no longer jiggles in the center and the brownies look set around the edges. (Try not to overbake, as this will dry the brownies out a bit.) Let the brownies cool at least 30 minutes before slicing. I recommend cooling the brownies completely for the neatest cuts.
  9. Slice & Enjoy. Cut into slices (9 large squares, 12 rectangles, or 16 small squares) and enjoy. Store leftover M&M brownies in the fridge 2-3 days, or in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container in the freezer up to 2 months.
