I can’t wait to make these for my book club group next week! I have a friend who has been gluten-free for about a year now and I’m always looking for recipes I think she can partake in.


  1. Alicia says:

    Where’s the peppermint ?!

  2. Hi Andrea,

    These sound lovely and I am definitely going to make these, but there are a few things I noticed in the recipe. In the instructions that follow in the recipe you speak of cinnamon, but there is no cinnamon in the ingredients list, and since they are called Gluten-Free Peppermint Mocha Brownies there is no peppermint in the ingredients either. Should there be some peppermint?

    Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Hi Gail, Thank you for pointing that out! I contacted Abe’s Market since it is their recipe, and they sent me the correction. The recipe is correct now. I’m making them on Monday, so if they need further modification, I’ll update it again! Andrea

  4. Hi Alicia, I wrote to Abe’s Market to get the recipe correction, and I’ve updated it to add the peppermint! Thanks for calling that to my attention, Andrea
