Good news for gluten free cooks! I was finally able to get the flour some people have mentioned in their comments and I tried it out with my lemon brownies. They turned out great – I saw no difference in taste or texture. This recipe is exactly the same as my regular lemon brownies only with swapping the regular flour for Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour. (This is not a paid endorsement, just a way to share a good recipe that’s gluten free.)
I have only made this recipe with this particular flour and can’t say how it will work with other gluten free flours so it you try it with a different brand of gluten-free flour please comment here on your results. I’m really happy to be able to share this very easy and very popular recipe for lemon brownies (some people call them “yellowies” ?) for everyone who has asked for more gluten-free baking.

I love my lemon brownies. I realize that some baked goods are not as good using whole wheat flour but it works with my one bowl lemon brownies recipe. In fact, I always make them this way now and I want to encourage everyone to try them this way. Any time you can avoid white flour, it’s a good thing. It needs to be whole wheat pastry flour and the result is a lovely, soft, delicious lemon bar.
I made them today in an 8 x 8-inch square pan but you can use a 9 x 9 for a more dense bar. I had some meyer lemons on my tree and if you have meyers, which have a milder lemon flavor, well I can tell you they make delicious lemon brownies. Oh, I forgot to mention this is the easiest recipe ever. Everything goes in one bowl, no mixer, no butter, no white flour, and if you make them… no brownies left!

I made lemon brownies today and decided to experiment with a larger pan, using a 9 x 9-inch square instead of the 8-inch square. Well, this recipe is indestructible. The brownies turned out great, even a little fudgier than the original. Even an amateur baker can’t mess this up. I’ve made these easy lemon brownies with all purpose flour, with whole wheat pastry flour, once when I was out of yogurt I used sour cream instead and no matter what, they always turn out. And it’s one bowl!
It’s one of my most popular recipes because they are so easy to make. There is no mixer, almost no cleanup, and they are so darn delicious. If you haven’t tried it yet, or even if you have, you can now make it in an 8 by 8 or 9 by 9 pan. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
There is a meyer lemon tree in my back yard and I have more lemons than I can use, or at least I did. I decided to make lemon brownies and I’ve been through more than a dozen lemons already trying to get the brownies just right and I think they’re almost there. I’ll try one more adjustment and then I’ll post the recipe. And by the way, there’s no butter in the recipe and it’s all in one bowl. The recipe is super easy and they taste out of this world.
