Good news! Tomorrow (Sunday) is World Chocolate day! Oh, so many ways to celebrate!

Today’s gem is a chocolate fudge brownie recipe- gluten free, vegan, sugar free goodness. I put almonds in it but honestly, if I had pistachios or hazelnuts on hand I probably would have used that! This is delicious! And guilt free. It is best cold – and goes slightly mousse-y if left out of the fridge or if not baked long enough in the first place. Either way, it wins. Enjoy!

(This recipe is adapted slightly from Femfusionfitness)

Ingredients:

15 Medjool dates (pitted)
3/4 cup hot water
1 Tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp finely ground coffee or espresso
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup  almond flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp  salt

Plus 1/4 cup roughly chopped nuts (add at end)

Soak the dates in hot water, coconut oil and coffee mixture. Blend the dry ingredients together and add all into a food processor and process. Stir in roughly chopped nuts of choice and press into a lined 8/8inch baking tray/dish and bake at 180 deg C for 15 minutes.

Let cool, refrigerate and enjoy for World Chocolate day! Woo!

  1. Yum… My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures!

  2. I am so excited to be trying this recipe! I did have to sub oat flour for the brown rice flour and added a tablespoon of ground flax, but it tasted quite delicious when I tried the dough straight out of the blender. (That’s part of the cook’s job, right?) Thank you so much for such an awesome, vegan, gluten free and naturally sweet recipe! I have really missed having fudge brownies.
