This recipe for gluten free peppermint brownies is one of my favorite healthy brownie recipes because they are incredible fudgy and taste like a thin mint cookie. The mint and chocolate flavor is one of the best for holiday baking! Topped with whipped coconut cream and crushed candy canes for an extra festive touch.
