Brownies are one of the most popular desserts for a reason. Their ooey gooey goodness is hard to out-match. If you're craving the sweet treat, most of us make them from a box mix or from scratch, but if you're out of certain ingredients, there are some flour-free brownie recipes that will hit all the right notes, even if they seem a little unconventional.
With flour shortages and gluten intolerances so prevalent, flourless recipes are seeing a real boom right now. Gone are the days where you'd be stuck searching for things like arrowroot powder to bulk up a recipe. Now, home bakers (the scientists of the culinary world) have come up with tons of workarounds that make baking without gluten or flour easy and delicious. And while some recipes still call for ingredients that might be unknown to you, they're not unavailable. In fact, during the recent all-purpose flour shortages, I had no problem finding ingredients like almond flour (also good for macarons), coconut flour, and protein powder. They were and continue to be readily available, and if they're kept in the freezer, they take a long time to mature to the point of waste.
These recipes run the gamut from extremely simple to more complex, but they're all completely doable, and completely delicious.
