An indulgent gluten-free dessert for chocolate lovers! The many layers are made up of delicious fudgy brownie, almond butter, quinoa puffs and chocolate. I am very excited about this gluten-free dessert because I am a chocolate lover, and this layered brownie is chocolaty throughout with added goodies such as almond butter, quinoa puffs and more chocolate, yum! I keep my brownies in the refrigerator, but always bring them to room temperature before serving, this way they melt in your mouth. Either way, they are delicious, hope you enjoy them
