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)


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.
