This recipe for Best Ever Gluten Free Marijuana Brownies is part of my larger feature: How to Make the Best Pot Brownies: Recipes, Tips & Troubleshooting
Just because you need to avoid or eliminate gluten does not mean you can’t enjoy pot brownies! This delicious recipe will prove that fact in a hurry.
Almond flour stands in for the traditional white flour used in most brownie recipes. You’ll never notice the difference. In fact the almond flour adds additional flavor. Costco carries reasonably priced organic almond flour, or you can order it online.
This recipe makes dense, fudgy gluten free marijuana brownies.
These brownies freeze exceptionally well for longer storage. Wrap individually then freeze. Simply bring to room temperature and enjoy anytime.
I use Marijuana Butter to medicate this recipe. Check out my Making Marijuana Butter tutorial for directions on how to make it.
A note on the Dosing for the Gluten Free Marijuana Brownies!
This recipe will have about 20 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup oil. To adjust the dosage for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your oil, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).

Thanks for the 710 info, will celebrate~
What temp do you bake these brownies?
Thanks again, Chef Redda
Sorry about that, let me go update. 350 F.
We loved these! They are delicious and work well. I found I needed to bake 10 minutes longer as the middle was too underdone.
Have you made them with less sugar or stevia? I will try a half cup less next time as they were too sweet for me although everyone else thought they were just fine. I always look for ways to cut back on sugar.
Thank you! I have not tried making them sugar-free but funny you should say that, as I put a sugar-free brownie on my to-do list after making there. I too am trying to cut sugar, as are a lot of folks. I was in Mexico at the time and could not get the different substitutes I wanted to experiment with (at least not without them being very expensive). I need to go shopping now that I am back in San Diego. Stay tuned and let me know how your experiments go too please.
We made them with 1/2 cup of granulated stevia and they were perfect.
Thank you so much for sharing! I like Stevia. It was my non-sugar sweetener of choice until I found monkfruit/lakanto which has less of a bitter taste. I am happy to hear the recipe worked with Stevia!
Hi Cheri, your site is amazing! I can’t find my previous question but would like to make chocolate to also add into the brownie recipe. What I have on hand is 50:50 blend 200mg TCH: 200mg CBD 1ml in MCT oil x 2 (total of 2ml of this blend). Will the MCT oil in the THC/CBD blend affect my chocolate? It is already decarboxylated.
I have a large bottle of dried plant which I will decarb but will not know the precise % of THC (until I get it tested or purchase a testing machine). I would like to use this in the brownies but the lovely people I make this for would like it to the weed to be tasteless. Any recommendations? Would butter help? Or make into oil? Does that decrease the flavour?
Thank you for all sharing your knowledge!
You may or may not get things completely tasteless and that’s OK. That said, this article will give you ideas for improving flavor
THC is something you can estimate reasonably accurately without a lab test. I talk more about how to do this in my Free dosing class that you can find at
Chocolate is tricky so adding oil must be done carefully and in tiny amounts or it will definitely affect the texture. Chocolate even without adding cannabis to the mix is a tricky ingredient that must be kept in temper. I have been able to add small amounts of oil but usually I am not happy with what it does to the texture.
I do not have almond flour on hand. Do you think they would come out well with coconut flour or a rice flour mix?
Sorry, I have no idea, I would need to test it. I doubt it would be the same because coconut flour requires significantly more moisture.
Made your gluten free brownies they are so good ,very easy and sòooo chocolate would make them again ,thanks will definitely follow your page ,Thanks Barb
Awww, happy to hear you liked them and thanks so much for the feedback.
