This brownie tasted so good I thought I was cheating. It might be that I’ve been eating so clean that any dessert like thing is AMAZING, or it might be that they are really amazing. I swear they are a truly legit treat. Legit meaning no processed sugar, to be clear there is sugar in the dates. Emily made these the other day and I tried one, then asked for the recipe. She said Jenny Peddie made the, then I found out that the Original Recipe came from Paleo Spirit. Well, thank you to all that shared, I truly enjoyed this treat!
What you will need:
10 medjool dates
1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine celtic sea salt
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 shredded coconut for topping
What to do:
In a food processor puree dates. Then add in applesauce. In another bowl mix together date/applesauce mixture with eggs, coconut oil and vanilla and coffee. Then add in dry ingredients making sure to mix thoroughly. Add in walnuts and spread into a 8×8 pan greased with coconut oil and spread evenly with spatula. Sprinkle with coconut. Bake for 30-35 minutes until fork/toothpick comes out clean.
They were a little crumbly, but not so crumbly that I didn’t want to eat them. I also imagine you could use decaf coffee if you or whomever are eating the brownies have sensitivities to caffeine.
Now, make them and let me know what you think!
