Cauliflower Brownies (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

  • Author: Mellissa Sevigny
  • Yield: 36 brownies 1x


  • 1 cup raw cauliflower puree
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 6 squares Lindt 90% chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup SF chocolate flavored syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tsp stevia or splenda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Puree the raw cauliflower in a blender, then add your almond milk and puree together for another 30 seconds or so. Make sure its completely smooth and there are no chunks!
  2. Put the butter, chocolate squares and cream cheese into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute. There may be a few small chunks of chocolate still not melted and that’s ok.
  3. Scrape the chocolate mixture into the blender with the cauli. Puree for about 20 seconds until well blended. Add the chocolate syrup and eggs and blend well.
  4. Add all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Pour the wet ingredients from the blender into the bowl containing the dry ingredients (scraping to get as much out as possible) and stir to combine thoroughly. The batter will be thick, almost mousse-like.
  5. Grease a 9 x 9 baking pan and spread the batter evenly into it. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees (F) for 35 minutes. Remove and cool before cutting.


Use the best quality chocolate and cocoa powder that you can get for the best results. I used Torani brand sugar free chocolate flavored syrup but you can use Davinci or any other brand as long as it’s sugar free. In the recipe I call for almond milk because it’s easily found, but I used an almond/coconut milk blend that I found that is sold by Almond Breeze. If you can find it, try it, but if not you can use either almond or coconut milk beverages found in the dairy section – just be sure to check the carbs (should net out to zero after you subtract fiber) and make sure they are labeled as unsweetened – the original flavor is sweetened and loaded with carbs.
The serving size for these is about 1.5 inch square, because they are so rich and chocolatey you really don’t need much. But if you are making a low carb brownie sundae out of them, which I highly recommend (try my sugar free mint ice cream with these), you might want to cut them a little larger. This recipe is pretty low in calories, so feel free to splurge if you want to!
