  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk or other plant milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (vegan)


  • Preheat Oven to 350F.
  • Add ground flaxseed and water to a small bowl. Mix and set aside for a few minutes.
  • In your food processor or blender, add the dates. Pulse until chopped.
  • To the dates, add cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking powder, flaxseed mixture, plant milk, and vanilla. Pulse until mixed together.
  • Stir in dark chocolate chips.
  • Pour into a non-stick or parchment-lined 8x8 baking dish.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Cool in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before cutting.


These brownies are very rich and fudge like. Allow to cool completely before cutting. 
I like to serve these with raspberries. The dark chocolate and raspberries taste so good together.
