Date Walnut Brownies // Sweet Laurel

Our Date Walnut Brownies are oh so good!  Not only are they sweetened with nature’s candy (dates), they are Vegan, grain free and dairy free.  These minimalistic bites of chocolate bliss are so simple, and that’s why I love them.  With 7 everyday pantry items and a food processor or blender, you’re minutes away from a truly healthy indulgence!

2 tablespoons cacao

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat your oven 350.

Assemble the flax egg: In a small bowl place the tablespoon of ground flaxseed.  Pour three tablespoons of water over the ground flax and allow to sit about 5 minutes.

Mix walnuts and dates in a food processor.  Once blended, add remaining ingredients.  Pulse until ingredients are mixed well.  Pour batter into a standard size loaf pan (8.5 x 4.5 inches) lined with parchment paper.  Bake about 8-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Once cooled cut into little squares.  Enjoy!
