Growing up, Rocky Road ice cream was always a favorite of mine! My parents always kept a stash in the freezer for celebratory days, like when I would bring home a straight-A report card, or won my volleyball match. Needless to say, rocky road ice cream brings back fond memories!

What better way to enjoy a childhood classic than paired with my now favorite dessert: brownies! Rocky Road Skillet Brownies is a decadent treat made of rich, fudgy brownies stuffed with walnuts, chocolate chips, and marshmallows in every bite! 

Because these brownies are made in a skillet, you can serve it right out of the skillet for a more indulgent experience —trust me, serve this at your next dinner party and your guest will love you!  

Vegan Gluten Free Skillet Brownie

I adapted this easy Rocky Road Brownies Recipe using my Fudgy Vegan Almond Flour Brownies, which means these brownies are moist, perfectly fudgy, gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free!

What you will need to make the Best Rocky Road Brownies Recipe

  • Almond Flour: Be sure to use Blanched Almond Flour like this one: Blue Diamond Almond Flour
  • Cocoa Powder: You can use unsweetened Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder, like this one. Or, you can use raw cacao powder!
  • Natural Sweetener: Coconut Sugar, Maple Syrup, Vanilla Extract. Just a bit of each is all you need to make this perfectly sweetened dessert! If you do not have coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar.
  • Binder: Applesauce, Almond Butter. The applesauce works to replace the egg in this recipe and the almond butter helps to create the perfect fudgy brownies!
  • Non-Dairy Milk: Use your favorite non-dairy (or dairy) milk. I use almond milk in this recipe.
  • Signature Rocky Road Ingredients: Chocolate Chips, Marshmallows, Walnuts! If you do not have walnuts you can also use pecans! My favorite marshmallows to use are these Trader Joe’s Vegan & Gluten-Free Mini Marshmallows!
  • Baking Soda
