I love the idea of a date night in. A quiet, peaceful meal free of toddler-wrangling, zone-defense, food-cutting, and all that goes along with food consumption in the company of two little boys. There’s no worries about trying to find a babysitter or making a reservation. (Both of which can be a challenge on any weekend, but especially on a holiday weekend.) It’s certainly cheaper, which means you can have that lobster or filet mignon without breaking the bank. And you aren’t limited by the menu – you can make anything your little heart desires. Or the heart of your favorite loved one.

I’ve tried doing the date night in thing. Yeah, not really working in our house right now. Our boys aren’t ready for bed until 7:30 or 8, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t want to wait that late for dinner. And if we put them to bed early, then they’re up early. And who wants that after you’ve spent the evening relaxing and enjoying a wonderful meal? So we’ve tried giving the boys dinner early then putting on a movie while The Hubby and I have dinner together. That works until the little guy loses interest in the movie after about five minutes, and then toddles into the kitchen demanding the food off of our plates even though he has already eaten. The big guy can’t be left out of anything either, especially when there’s food involved. So that quiet dinner for two – not happening.

Luckily my boys are great eaters, so I can make a special meal for four, and enjoy it with my three best guys. Triple the love, even if it does mean that our dinnertime conversation never gets around to adult topics, like work or sports or house projects. How about food? Yes, that is a topic we all enjoy. Perhaps we’ll savor the caramelized subtle sweetness of some seared scallops and rich and creamy risotto with a side of grilled asparagus with lemon. Even my boys can get into that. We’ll call it a family date night.

Then we’ll get the boys to bed and, instead of a dinner date night in, we’ll enjoy a dessert for two…

Gluten Free Red Velvet Brownies For Two

That’s where these red velvet brownies come in. It took a few tries to get them right, plus a little help from my friends and this recipe from Renee at Magnolia Days, but this dessert is sure to please any red velvet lover or any chocolate lover or any brownie lover or anyone you love that you want to share it with. That is, if you want to share! You’ll want to slightly underbake them so that they are totally ooey gooey, and then serve them right away.

Another option is to cool them to room temperature and top with my Greek yogurt cream cheese topping. Or, you could always warm them up a bit in the microwave and top them with my Vanilla Bean Cheesecake No-Churn Ice Cream, because just like you and your sweetie, red velvet + cream cheese = 4ever…

How to Make Gluten Free Red Velvet Brownies

For this recipe, the only special gluten-free ingredients you’ll need are almond flour and brown rice flour. The key to these gluten-free brownies is to whip the egg and sugar mixture until it’s thick. It should also be light in color. Since you are making a small batch in a small bowl, if your hand mixer will operate with only one of the beater blades, that is what I would suggest. I like baking the red velvet brownies in 6 ounce ramekins.

  1. I had to show your post to my husband! He drooled!:) I think this is a great dish! The recipe sounds delicious but your beautiful pictures sealed the deal! Love this!

    1. Brianne Cupcakes & Kale Chips

      Thank you so much, Lisa. I apologize for any excessive drool around your house. 😉

  2. Jennifer

    Thank you for sharing this… I want to make it but I looked and I do not have any Brown Rice Flour and it’s way too cold here in Michigan to drive to the store for brown rice flour…..Any suggestions?

    Thank you,


      1. Jennifer

        Thank you for getting back with me so quickly… After I made my comment I found another comment with someone using Sorghum Flour. Went downstairs and found a jar of it…..Once the eggs and butter are at room temperature I will be whipping up a batch.

        Thank you

  3. Hello beautiful! This looks so amazing. I can’t wait to try it. Pinned and tweeted. Thank you for being a part of our party and we hope to see you on Monday at 7 pm. We can’t wait to party with you! Happy Valentines’ Day! Lou Lou Girls

    Oh my, I’m already drooling. The red velvet + ice cream = heaven! I can already imagine myself eating more than I should be.

  5. I’ve got to make these! Red Velvet is my favorite way to have chocolate! And our Valentine’s Day (evening) will be much the same as yours, only it’s with two of our grandsons who will be visiting us to do some snowboarding. So, assuming I survived being on the slopes with them all day, I’m thinking whatever we have will be around 5:30 or 6pm, and we’re all going to bed early 🙂

  6. Brianne, love the idea of red velvet brownies in a cup!! these look great and LOVE that you made these with almond meal and brown rice flour!!! I love both! we usually do the valentine’s dinner date in but this year we are going out! but we’re going out a few days before . . yeah not a fan of going out the day of. . too crazy and too much $$. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

  7. I’m so glad I could help in your hunt for a red velvet dessert. Now I need to make your version too. It looks absolutely wonderful!!

  8. What a terrific small batch recipe for Valentine’s Day! I think I’d have to double it, though, as one would not be enough!! We LOVE red velvet.
