Gluten-Free Brownie Sundae

Gluten-Free Brownie Sundaes

If you read my previous post on The OSGCookathon I did with Emily Vaughn of Puppies and Peanut Butter, you already know that I discovered the most amazing brownie recipe. Although I have been vegan and gluten-free baking for about a year now, I had never been successful veganizing brownies. With every attempt, I would always end up with brownies that tasted good but would crumble apart. Finally I was finally rewarded with perfectly firm and fudgy brownies once I tried the Gluten-Free Chocolate Almond Brownie recipe from The Oh She Glows Cookbook! My only complaint… they are completely addicting! My boyfriend and I ate the whole batch within 3 days. But before devouring them, we put them to great use in a classic brownie sundae.

I have quite the sweet tooth so while just a brownie is totally enough to be served as dessert, I can’t help but add ice cream and extra chocolate chips. It doesn’t get much better than a scoop of creamy vanilla coconut ice cream melting over chewy chocolate brownies. I filled each parfait glass with half a brownie, then added 2 scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream (recipe below) and topped them off with a crumbled brownie and mini chocolate chips for a blissful brownie sundae!

You can find the brownie recipe on page 259 of The Oh She Glows Cookbook. If you don’t own the book, you can try the Gluten-Free Brownie recipe from the Oh She Glows blog which is nearly identical to the cookbook recipe!

Vanilla Ice Cream (Vegan, Gluten-Free and Refined-Sugar Free)


2 cans full fat coconut milk

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup pure maple syrup (agave also works)

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Combine the coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla in a blender. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

2. Pour the ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Once completed, transfer to a container to firm up in the freezer for an additional hour. Or you can forgo chilling and simply serve right away for a soft-serve consistency which is equally delicious!

Note: If you prefer sweeter ice cream feel free to add extra sweetener. Try tasting the mixture with a spoon prior to chilling to make sure it is sweet enough for your taste buds.
