Filled with big chunks of dairy free chocolate orange and orange extract, they are the perfect festive treat which are easy to make! If you do make my brownies I’ve love to see, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media.

Frequently Asked Questions

I use 2 packs of the Buttermilk dairy free Chocolate Orange Segments – 1 pack for inside the brownies and 1 for the topping.

Which flour do you use to make the brownies? 

For this recipe, and the majority of my bakes, I use the FREEE Gluten Free Plain Flour which works really well in gluten free baking.

How long will the brownies last?

My chocolate orange brownies will last in airtight container for up to 5 days. I like to store mine in the fridge so they stay nice and fudgy.

Chocolate Orange Brownies

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time25 minutes
Servings: 9 squares


  • 75 g cocoa powder
  • 185 g dairy free butter
  • 300 g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons orange extract
  • 120 g gluten free plain flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 200 g dairy free chocolate orange (see FAQs)


  • Pre heat the oven to 180°C and grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
  • Add your cocoa powder, dairy free butter and caster sugar to a saucepan and gently heat on the hob until it forms a chocolatey liquid mixture. Stir continuously so it doesn’t burn.
  • Leave to cool for a few minutes while you beat your eggs in a separate bowl. Gradually add the beaten eggs to the chocolate mixture and stir well. Add your orange extract and mix again.
  • Next, add your gluten free flour and xanthan gum to the mixture and stir until fully combined.
  • Break up 100g of your dairy free chocolate orange segments and stir into the mixture. Pour the mixture into your lined baking tin.
  • Bake for around 25 minutes to 35 minutes (this really does depend on your oven and how you like your brownies – for a fudgy brownie take them out sooner and for a more cakey brownie leave them in a little longer).
  • Remove from the oven and press the chocolate orange segments into the top. Leave to cool completely. I prefer to leave my brownies in the fridge for a couple of hours before removing and cutting. The fridge helps the brownies become even more fudgy and delicious.
