Deliciously fudgy, vegan brownies will be your new favorite sweet treat! These Double Chocolate Brownies are so rich and chocolatey that you’d never guess they were HEALTHY! Gluten-free, no sugar added, and SO drool-worthy.
Brownies are probably one of my favorite desserts. I am not much of a cake person. But give me a dense, delicious, fudgy brownie and I am in heaven!
And being a total chocolate lover as well, brownie just seem like the perfect sweet treat to me. More than cake or cookies or even ice cream. And brownies just scream summer BBQ season to me! Just like you’ll always find some sort of mac n’ cheese at a cookout, there’s usually some sort of brownies for dessert. They are a staple of summer. At least in my life!
Luckily, I always have some healthy baking ingredients on hand when a craving strikes. Including my favorite food for naturally sweetening my baked goods…Medjool dates!
Why bake with dates?
If you’ve never tried dates or think you don’t like them, try these. They literally taste like CANDY. Nature’s caramel. So sweet, soft, and satisfying. I love them with nut butter, in yogurt bowls, or just straight out of the container. Plus you can’t beat the nutrients they provide!
Medjool dates pack 50% more potassium by weight than bananas, loads of dietary fiber, and of course that sweet sweet taste we all love without any added sugar!
Vegan Double Chocolate Brownies
Of course, these delicious Double Chocolate Brownies are only sweetened with medjool dates, making them no sugar added as well!
