Date & Coconut Chocolate Brownies

For those seeking a vegan brownie recipe, this is it. Fudgy and chocolatey, these vegan date & coconut chocolate brownies are the real deal! They’re also completely satisfying – one or two is all you need to satisfy your sweet tooth. No need to bother with any freezing cold brownie again, as these are so easy to make and full of wholesome ingredients! They aren’t overly sweet of course, but sweet enough to taste rich and decadent. Date paste is the only sweetener in the actual brownie – no other sweetener added- gluten-free, vegan, and paleo. An easy date brownies recipe made in a food processor with only wholesome ingredients.



Brownies are my kryptonite. We all have different opinions on what is considered the perfect brownie. Some like them cakey, some super fudgy, and some are in the dense and chewy crowd. I am very picky when it comes to texture, but these ones are extremely fudgy! The kind of brownie that covers your teeth with creamy dark chocolate fudge. I love them even more than chocolate chips cookies. These brownies are like a cross between a brownie and a chocolate candy bar – and secretly good for you at the same time!



As much as I like fudge, I am not a fan of baked goods with too much moisture. It’s like when you have a sandwich and the bread gets wet. Cue the gagging. So when I started my brownie journey, I knew I needed to make my perfect vegan brownie. I wanted just enough density, with the perfect chewy texture and a small touch of fudge. I wanted my sweetener to be dates, they give such a great chewy texture without the need for another sweetener (although I did many trials with sugar and maple syrup just to make sure dates were the best choice, they were). These are gluten-free and have a nut-free option! Which makes them perfect for school safe sweets without sacrificing on taste and texture.



ARE DATES HEALTHIER THAN SUGAR?

When substituting for white sugar, yes, dates are healthier. Dates are packed with nutrition, but they are still high in caloric intake and natural sugars. So you still are eating sugar, just in a more natural form. In my opinion, I think it all depends on your intention. I love using recipes with dates when I want an every day sweet treat. I feel better when I am not overloading on white sugar. However when I go in for dessert, I don’t sweat it. But the good news, is these date brownies are the best of both! So indulgent and yummy, but still have less white sugar than traditional brownies.
