Date Sweetened Brownies

These fudgy plant based brownies are nutrient and flavor dense, and incredibly easy to make! These brownies are perfect to bring to parties, or to enjoy on a night in. This brownie recipe is: vegan, oil-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free,

Happy Tuesday friends! I'm not going to waste any time today, because I mean LOOK AT THESE! These fudgy brownies are just simply glorious. I always find (especially with healthy vegan brownie recipes) that the brownies always come out to fluffy and cake like. I am a strong believer that brownies should be thick and dense. I have honestly never really been able to achieve this perfect texture for a traditional brownie recipe until now. I have a Sweet Potato Brownie recipe and a Mesquite Eggplant Brownie recipe that both have nice fudgy textures. However these are a little more "unusual" brownie recipes that may scare some people off, even though they are so delicious!

I am so excited to bring you all today's brownie recipe, not only because it is the perfect texture and delicious, but also because they are super healthy. Since I used medjool dates to sweeten this recipe, it is free of any refined, or processed sugar, yay for whole foods plant based ingredients! Because I used dates as my plant based sweetener, this recipe is high fiber, and low in sugar!

These brownies are also extremely easy to make; you just need a food processor, or blender and one bowl! If you don't have a blender, or food processor, you can use date syrup for an easier option. I always go for DVASH Date syrup , I am seriously obsessed with this stuff.

If the price of dates are turning you away from this recipe, I have to let you in on an incredible Amazon find. You can purchase 4.4lbs of dates for $25. Yes, you read that right! I always buy my dates from Joolies Ugglies on Amazon. These dates are QUALITY people. I was a little hesitant at first to purchase these dates, but I can assure you that there is nothing to worry about, this is one of the best deals I have ever found.
