Vegan & Gluten Free Banana Date Brownies
brownies, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Kid Friendly, Paleo Friendly, Quick Recipes, Vegan, Whole 30 Approved
about 4-5 ounces - if you have a scale I use 4 1/2 ounces
I used cashew and almond
or your neutral tasting oil of choice
unsweetened cocoa powder
Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper
In a food processor, process the dates and the water for 30 seconds until it is almost a paste
When done, scrape down the sides and add in the nut butter, banana, and oil and process for 1 minute or until smooth (will look almost like a smoothie)
Open and scrape down the sides and add the cocoa powder and salt
Pulse a few times to combine and then process for about 20 seconds or until combined, they will be thick and sticky.
Using a spatula with a little avocado oil or oil spray spread the mixture from the processor into the brownie pan and evenly spread throughout the pan.
Bake for 15 minutes
Let cool at least 15 minutes before slicing
Eat immediately or store in the refrigerator
If your dates are not soft, place them in a boil of boiling water for an hour (I buy the bag at Costco and they stay soft for a long time)
