Come springtime, I love adding strawberries to tons of desserts.

I love adding strawberries to cake, to banana bread, to cheesecake, and even in oatmeal cookies. When I want something a little chocolatey, I love making strawberry brownies.

Why you’ll love this strawberry brownies recipe

  • No flour needed. Like my flourless brownies, these have no grains either! 
  • Accidentally gluten free. If you are celiac or follow a low gluten diet, these are perfect for you.
  • Ready in under 25 minutes. These brownies take less time than something out of a box. 

They have all the best parts of a classic brownie- Ooey, gooey in the center, with those gorgeous crackly tops on the outside. They also have a generous burst of fresh strawberries and chocolate chips to take it up a notch.

How to make strawberry brownies

The Ingredients.

  • Chocolate chips– I used semi sweet chocolate chips, but dark or milk chocolate chips also work. 
  • Coconut oil– Choose refined coconut oil so that there is no coconut flavor. 
  • Eggs– Room temperature eggs. 
  • Sugar– White sugar is preferred, but raw or brown sugar work too. 
  • Vanilla extract– Adds a subtle vanilla flavor. 
  • Cocoa powder– Unsweetened and sifted. 
  • Tapioca starch– Helps bind the brownies together and give them an extra chew. 
  • Salt– Just a pinch to balance out the sweet ingredients. 
  • Strawberries– Finely sliced. 

The Instructions. 

Start by melting the chocolate with the coconut oil until smooth. 

Next, beat together the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract, then beat in the melted chocolate/coconut mixture. Fold through the remaining ingredients and finally the strawberries. 

Now, transfer the batter into a lined pan and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out mostly clean. 

Finally, let the brownies cool in the pan completely before slicing and serving.

Tips for success

  • Reserve half the strawberries to distribute on top of the brownies before baking them. 
  • Be sure to sift the cocoa powder and tapioca starch to ensure there are no clumps throughout. 
  • Do not over-bake the brownies as they continue to cook as they are cooling down. 

Dietary swaps and substitutions

  • Make them without eggs. Instead of using eggs, try replacing them with an egg substitute.
  • Cut the sugar. Swap the sugar for a substitute, like a brown sugar substitute. Also use sugar free chocolate chips
  • Use butter. If you don’t want to use coconut oil, replace it with equal parts unsalted butter measured in its firm state. 
  • Add mix-ins. Crush some walnuts, pecans, or even chunks of chocolate and fold them through the batter. 

Storing and freezing instructions

  • To store: Leftovers can be kept at room temperature, covered, for up to three days. If you’d like them to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator.
  • To freeze: Place the cooled brownies in an airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to six months.

    1. How many eggs are you replacing with the flax/water mix? As I am not vegan, but keto, I would like to up the protein content by putting the eggs in.

    2. Hi Arman, thank you for this fabulous recipe! I loved it! 🙂 I used peanut butter instead of almond, it works fine. Also, I don’t have granulated sweeter or sugar, so I used maple syrup. It wasn’t that sweet, but it’s not a problem for me. The chocolate and strawberry combo is devine! 🙂
