Using dates in place of sugar results in very fudgy chocolate brownies with no added sugar required. The dark chocolate chips are optional! These brownies are slightly cakey; if you prefer a denser brownie, use only 1 egg instead of 2.

IngredientsServes: 16

  • 175g pitted deglet nour dates (see note)
  • 250ml hot water
  • 120g unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 40g wholemeal flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 85g dark chocolate chips (optional)

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:20min ›Extra time:20min › Ready in:50min

  1. Place dates in a small bowl and pour in hot water. Soak for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line an 20cm square baking dish with baking paper, leaving enough paper to hang over the sides of the dish.
  3. Drain dates and transfer to a food processor. Pulse until dates are completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. If date paste is too thick, add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until completely pureed.
  4. Add softened butter to the food processor and pulse to combine, about 30 seconds. Add eggs and vanilla extract; process until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add wholemeal flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Pulse until mixture is just combined, about 30 seconds. Gently stir in chocolate chips (if using) by hand. Pour brownie mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges just begin to set, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove brownies from pan by gently lifting up edges of baking paper. Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack. Slice into 16 equal pieces.

Deglet nour dates:

Deglet nour dates are lighter in colour than medjool dates. They have a sweet, and slightly more delicate flavour than medjool dates. They are available in larger supermarkets.

Sugar-free Fudgy Walnut Brownies

Brownies are one of my favourite desserts because they’re full of chocolate, delicious and easy to make. This Sugar-free Fudgy Walnut Brownies recipe is rich, very moist, ridiculously decadent, super chocolatey and chewy. Oh I can’t forget to mention that it’s healthier than the regular recipes. Wow this is the best part I mean I can enjoy this delicious brownie without feeling guilt about it.

I can say for sure that these fudgy brownies are the most indulgent sugar-free chocolate treat you’ll ever make. Plus, they’re low-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and kid approved. My 3 years old boy loved them so much.


Double Chocolate Brownies Made With Stevia

By removing the flour completely and swapping it for almond butter, these fudgy brownies contain 10.7 g carbs, along with 2.5 g of fiber, per serving. Because it relies on cocoa powder and sweetness coming from stevia, a natural sweetener, versus added sugar, this recipe can provide the same taste as the traditional option while having less of an impact on blood sugar.


Date Sweetened Brownie Recipe:

8 dates soaked in 1/4 cup warm water
3 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate (I like this brand because it&rsquos 100% cacao)
1/2 cup coconut oil (where to buy coconut oil)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp ground flax seeds soaked in 2 tbsp water
4 tbsp whole milk or coconut milk (where to buy bpa free coconut milk)
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°. Remove the pits from the dates and soak in 1/4 cup warm water for a few minutes. Then, in another bowl combine ground flax seeds and water and allow to congeal.

2. Using a double boiler, melt the baking chocolate and coconut oil together.

3. Put the dates and water in a food processor and chop into a paste. Add flax mixture, almond milk and vanilla. Then, add dry ingredients and process. Lastly, add melted chocolate and coconut oil and mix until all ingredients are combined.

4. Pour batter into an 8 in. baking dish that is either oiled or lined with parchment paper. Place walnuts on top.

5. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before eating.

How To Make Gluten Free Brownies With Dates

The only sweetener needed for this brownie recipe is dates. Start by soaking 12 ounces of pitted dates in just boiled water for 15 minutes so they can soften up. Add the soft dates to a food processor with 1/4 cup of water and puree until smooth. Next, add 4 eggs to the machine, one at a time.

To make this brownie recipe gluten free, we used Bob’s red mill paleo baking flour mix. Add flour to the food processor along with the coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and baking powder. The brownies are also dairy free since we are using coconut oil.

Pour the batter into a prepared baking dish and don’t forget to add some chocolate chips on top. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Recipe Summary

  • cooking spray
  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square glass pan with cooking spray.

Place black beans and coconut oil in a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the beans are warmed through and the coconut oil is melted, about 5 minutes. Mix in eggs, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt, and baking powder.

Transfer black bean mixture to a blender. Cover and blend into a smooth batter, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into greased pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Bake in the preheated oven until batter pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting, about 30 minutes.

Carob Date Brownies

An acid-watcher friendly brownie?? Yes, ma’am!! This one’s got minimal sugars, no chocolate and is not high in fat! The combo of date/carob add to the “richness” and its crumb is moist and pleasing to the palate. And each yummy square is just under 100 calories!!

How was I ever going to enjoy my favorite Outrageous Brownies ever again? The Ina Garten recipe works like a charm and those brownies are a hit at every party and potluck I’ve attended. But now with acid reflux, not only must I keep my fat quota on the low, I also have to watch the sugars and can definitely have no caffeine or chocolate. Her brownies are made decadently with a pound of butter and over a pound of chocolate chips and use ever a hint of coffee to richen the chocolate yum factor! So if you can have these, I definitely recommend. But for my personal needs and satisfaction, I had to come up with a brownie of my own.

I chose unsweetened carob chips to replace the chocolate and applesauce mostly as a replacement for the butter (although I did use a little coconut oil to melt the chips). There’s a hint of vanilla and just a Tablespoon of date syrup, but a little of the date syrup goes a long way – it’s concentrated and sweet! And I kept it gluten free by using almond meal instead of flour. So no, I did not follow the recipe in any shape or form, but used it as a guide for a delicious brownie treat.

This recipe is fantastic, so easy and worked perfectly. I did repeat step 4, 3 times to get a nice smooth texture. This will definately be my go to brownie recipe from now on. If you opt for a good quality dark chocolate (70% or higher), it makes for a heathier treat compared to using a block of "normal" dark chocolate which contains a lot of sugar.

This is absolutely lovely! I will certainly make again! Can I make a polite request though: can the term "sugar-free" be removed from the title, as it is misleading. Unless you pick a sugar-free chocolate, the recipe will contain cane sugar, and in some cases, a lot of it. The recipe is lovely though -quick, easy and delicious. Thanks for sharing.


Healthy No-Bake Brownies (Vegan, Gluten Free)

My affair with food has existed possibly since birth. My earliest memories include peppering a bowl of mashed potatoes with my grandmother, and adding in some shredded cheese to embellish it a little more. All the books I enjoyed reading referenced food in some way. The only Amelia Bedelia book I remember was when Amelia made strawberry tarts. The only Arthur narrative I recall involves D.W. being a picky eater.

I like good food (obviously, who doesn’t), and I only post my favorite recipes on this blog. While I do believe that healthy food can be tasty, in regards to dessert, it’s not always easy to find a dish that checks both boxes. My quest during the past couple months has been to develop tasty, healthy dessert recipes as I’d like to try and reduce the amount of sugar in my diet. Sugar is great once in a while, but not when you’re gouging it day in day out.

I gave these no-bake brownies to a couple friends, and the reaction was- do these really have no sugar? No chocolate? No butter? How?

A combination of dates, cacao powder and nuts glazed with a coconut oil-cacao ganache yields a rich, chocolatey product.

Although these don’t taste exactly like traditional butter and sugar based brownies (totally different ingredients), they are chewy, rich, full of chocolate and a great way to satisfy that sugar craving.

Now this recipe is made purely from nuts, so it isn’t cheap. But it lasts quite a while and can be served in small portions. Also, you can get a way with substituting many of the ingredients based on what you have at home, so you may not need to go out and buy a ton of stuff.
