Chewy Chocolate Vegan Date Brownies
Eat these for a snack, dessert, or even breakfast – they’re sweetened with nutrient dense dates and they’re fat free. I didn’t try to leave out the fat. It just happened.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mist an 8×8 baking pan with cooking spray.
- Put pitted dates, hot water, vanilla, and instant decaf coffee in a heat proof bowl. Let sit while you measure the remaining ingredients. Sift cocoa powder into a bowl to remove any lumps. Add gluten-free flour mix, palm sugar, baking powder, and kosher salt. Whisk to combine.
- Place dates and soaking water into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until smooth, scraping down as necessary. Add flour mixture to dates and process until smooth. Batter will be thick.
- Turn into prepared pan, scraping as much batter as possible from bowl. Smooth top with a spatula and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until brownies are set. A toothpick won’t come out completely clean for these brownies. Let cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
