Date Brownies

Date brownies are a delicious fudgy treat! Sweet, sticky dates replace sugar, adding a rich caramel flavor that perfectly complements the cocoa.

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so there is an overhang on all four sides.
  • Add butter and 1 cup of chocolate chips to a large microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave using 30 second intervals until butter and chocolate is melted. Whisk until smooth, and let cool slightly.
  • In a high speed blender combine eggs and dates and process until smooth, about 1 minute. There should only be small bits of date visual, about the size of sesame seeds. Any larger pieces should be mixed until broken down.
  • Pour the egg and date mixture into the melted chocolate and whisk for about 1 minute, or until well combined, then whisk in the vanilla extract. In a separate small bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder and salt together. Add flour to the chocolate mixture and fold gently with a rubber spatula until no streaks of flour remain. Fold in the remaining chocolate chips. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer.
  • Bake until the top looks set, but the middle is still fudgy, 20-25 minutes. Let cool for about 30 minutes before slicing into 16 equal pieces.
