Fudgy Date Brownies (Gluten-Free)

Sometimes you want a sweet treat that is actually good for you, and these brownies are just the thing.

Using dates and honey instead of sugar and almond meal instead of flour they are dense and moist and so delicious it will be hard to believe they are actually a healthy treat.

Fudgy Date Brownies

1 cup pitted Medjool dates
3/4 cup hot water
3/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.  Grease a 20cm square cake tin and line the base with baking paper.

Pour the hot water over the dates in a bowl and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Drain the water from the dates and place the dates in the bowl of a food processor or in a blender. Process the dates until they are smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla and sea salt to the food processor or blender. Process again until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Bake for 20 minutes, and allow to cool before cutting.  Cut brownies into 16 square pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
