These brownies taste like heaven. They are unbelievably wonderful. Just so sweet, gooey and rich. No matter how many hundreds of times I make them I still can’t quite believe how they turn out and how easy they are – just four ingredients in a food processor. 5 minute brownies. Yet they still taste identical to normal brownies with the same perfectly squishy, melt-in-your-mouth texture. I’d never have guessed that it was possible to make sugar, dairy and gluten free brownies, it surprises everyone I feed them too. They’re always the biggest hit at a party. And they’re so healthy – packed with fibre and protein. Just wow. This is my favourite go-to dessert. Anytime I crave something sweet I throw the ingredients in the processor and 3 minutes later every craving I’ve ever had is sated, it’s perfect. You’ll never ever want refined sugar again.
Makes 10 brownies
– 2 cups of medjool dates (they’re the squishier, stickier, tastier kind of dates) (400g)
– 1 cup of pecans (140g)
– 2-3 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (optional and can be replaced with any other liquid sweetener)
This is the easiest recipe. Simply blend the pecans in a food processor until they form a crumbly mixture, then add the dates and blend again before adding the cacao and maple syrup.
Place the mixture into a baking tray and either refrigerate for 3-4 hours or freeze for one to allow them to set. Then keep them in the fridge for freshness.
