Gwummmllppp is the sound that I want to make when I look at this picture from Sweet Talk! I just wanna pick these delicious looking brownies and scarf them all down. Unfortunately, I have never been able to develop a liking for dates. I really, really wish I liked them because they are so great for desserts. Here's one brilliant example of how they can be used in a nutrition packed alternative to brownies- everyone's favourite.
Hey you, yeah you. I know your mind went there when you saw the title of this post. Well, guess what? Stay there. Cause you're about to fall in love with these 5 minutes brownies. The recipe speaks for itself. So if you're trying to do something special for someone (read: guys you can't possibly mess this up!) or you're looking for an easy way to do something healthy, THIS. IS. IT.
Now go run your cute behinds to your kitchen and whip these up!
1 cup hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds)
1 cup medjool dates*
1/2 cup cacao powder (or carob)
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 tablespoons raw liquid sweetener
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of himalayan salt
*If you're using regular dates soak them first in warm water to allow them to soften.
1. Process all ingredients in a food processor until a ball of brownie dough forms. This will take a few minutes. If the dough is too wet add a tbsp more coconut flour and if too dry add another date or two.
2. Press brownie mixture into a small square pan lined with parchment paper and put in the fridge until ready to eat. You can either cut the brownies into small squares or use your favourite cookie cutter to cut out small 'two bite' shapes and sprinkle with cacao nibs if desired.
*I would suggest letting your brownies sit in the fridge for 20 minutes (to firm up) before using a cookie cutter to make your bites.
