If you love rich chocolate, soft gooey brownies, and s’mores, I’ve got just the recipe for you! Oh, and did I mention these s’more brownies have less than half the fat of regular brownies?

 

Just what makes this rich chocolate nearly no-fat brownie so soft and gooey? The mini marshmallows and instant coffee are my two magic ingredients in these irresistible brownies.

 

The coffee enhances the chocolate, and the marshmallows make these brownies a whole new soft and gooey extravagance. Let’s say these are a cross between a brownie and heaven.

 

This is an incredibly simple recipe that goes together in a snap. The hardest part is waiting to eat them.

I added my own favorite frosting to half the brownies and left the other half unfrosted.  The frosting is made from peanut butter and semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, and it’s to die for! You can also use this combination as a delicious drizzle for cookies, brownies, and baked donuts too. Of course, this adds a little extra fat to the brownies, to be exact, 2 grams per teaspoon. But seriously…it’s worth it! I like to drizzle this frosting over my s’more brownies.

In case I haven’t mentioned this before, my husband likes chopped nuts on just about every dessert that enters his mouth. Nuts are not added to the fat grams in the nutritional information.

Just melt the peanut butter and chocolate in the microwave on medium heat until completely melted and stir to combine.

 

 

 

Substituting Types Of Sweeteners Is No Problem:

  • Regular organic granulated sugar
  • Beet sugar
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • Half regular and half Monk Sweetener

Monk fruit sweetener is a sugar substitute that cooks and bakes just like sugar. It is made from a fruit, Monk Fruit. Monk fruit sweetener has zero calories and carbs.

Remember…coffee enhances the flavor of chocolate. Therefore, I added less than one teaspoon of instant coffee grounds for a richer chocolate brownie. This is optional…but delicious.

Here’s A Tip:
~ line pan with parchment paper to easily remove brownies after baking. After the brownies have cooled down somewhat, you lift the brownies out, holding the edges of the paper. Let brownies continue to cool on a wire rack.
