These Date Brownies are so simple to make and deliciously naturally sweetened!


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup of packed Natural Delights Medjool Dates , pitted ~10 medium Medjool Dates
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of almond butter (I’ve also tried these with PB and they turned out great!)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup of cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1/2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips + more for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, blend together the dates, almond butter and water until the dates are almost fully broken down and a paste forms. You may need to stop and scrap the sides of the food processor a few times. This will take about a minute of blending.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients (minus the chocolate chips) and blend until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the batter (it’ll be pretty thick) into the prepared pan and use a spatula to spread it out evenly into the pan. Top with additional chocolate chips as desired.
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve and ENJOY!
