Three cheers for chocolate!  Come on now, who’s with me?  I am so excited to share with you this decadent recipe for gluten-free Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies.  Once you try these you may decide that the search for the BEST gluten free brownie is over.

Dark chocolate includes a host of benefits for your health, including lower blood pressure, lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and a lower risk of heart disease. One of the reasons dark chocolate is especially heart-healthy is its inflammation-fighting properties.  Now for a reality check, this recipe does have dark chocolate cocoa powder in it but also has sugar as an ingredient.  To make this a healthier option substitute the sugar with coconut sugar.
