Anxious about missing your cakes and desserts over Pesach? Fear not. Once you try this recipe you will never again fear the holiday of no flour! This is a family fav and always made our house the place to be over Passover. Be prepared to make a double batch of this recipe since it’s usually devoured within minutes of leaving the oven!

1/2 cup of vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of potato starch
1/2 cup of cocoa (use Hershey’s coca for the best taste!)

Mix the above ingredients together in a large mixing bowl then bake in a 9×13 pan on 350′ for about 25 minutes or until done.

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: Melt chocolate chips in the oven on 30 second increments, stirring until smooth and melted. Drizzle over brownies then top with your choice of potato chips, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, crumbled macaroons, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, or good ol sprinkles.

    • Hi Debbie! Certain items do not require a passover hechsher such as Hersheys regular cocoa powder (not the dark) and items like regular sugar as well as more. Always check with the symbol you regularly use to confirm as these things change year to year.

  • These are so easy to make and absolutely delicious! Thank you…my husband and I have each “tested” two pieces. I’ll be making a second batch. A perfect recipe!

  • They tasted delicious but after they cooled and I tried to cut them they completely fell apart and became crumbly so I froze them. After they defrosted I had the same problem

    • Hi Terri I am so sorry to hear that! I have been making these for years without that happening so I am not sure what the issue is. It has more of a crumb texture than firm but it holds together enough to be eaten. Once again I am sorry it did not work out for you ;(

  • Nina, this recipe is amazing. Made this for my Passover Seder. These are truly decadent brownies. Their crumb texture is fluffy and moist. I would make this recipe all year round, not just at Passover. I made another batch to get my family through the eight days. This recipe is a keeper. My family thanks you for this wonderful recipe. Also, your food photographs are beautiful.

    • Hi Lisa! I am so glad yolu like them as much as I do =) I adore the chocolate fudge texture and will eat about half a pan straight out of the oven. Not even joking. I love adding chocolate chips to the batter and mini marshmallows on top for a yummy Passover S’mores treat. Happy Passover!

  • I made these for the fist time on passover, now they are my regular gluten free recipe :) super awesome! Swap out the sugar for coconut sugar and it’s healthy too!

  • I just came across this recipe and would love to try. Just wondering if these can be made ahead of time and frozen ?

  • Greetings and Chug Sameach from Sydney Australia. Just wanted to say this recipe is brilliant and will be my go to Choc Brownie recipe for future Passovers. I’ve never really used potato starch much but had some in my pantry so thought why not. I was very surprised to see how well the Brownies turned out – light and not too sweet. Love the fact all ingredients just go in the one bowl – too easy! Thank you.

    • This message makes me so happy! I love knowing people are enjoying my recipes. This is certainly a favorite of mine! I am a Passover baby and this is my birthday cake (served with coffee frosting on top!)
