We have all been taught ever since we were weeee little children to never believe in things that sound too good to be true. In many cases that is very wise advice but absolutely stupidity when it comes to this bad boy.
Just look at it! And I promise you that it tastes and has just as a perfect, fudgey texture as it look.
On top of being so simple to make ut is ridiculous it also is just filled to the rim with only good stuff. Suits pretty much anyone’s allergies or such diets as well as it is made out of perfectly healthy, delicious whole foods. Yuuum!
Enjoy my darlings, enjoy!
Almost forgot, got a little bit too excited hehe, this is a collaboration together with the one and only, amazing Emma from FruitAndRoutes. She originally made the cookie dough and the brownie part is my favourite brownie recipe. This collaboration has been the absolute best of times and Emma truly is an amazingly sweet and awesome person and you REALLY should check her out!
The most heavenly and fudgey Chocolate Chip Cookie dough Brownies
[Vegan, whole food, refined sugar-, gluten-, grain-, oil-free, fruit sweetened, paleo]
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 25 minutes Total time: 15-25 minutes
Servings: 9 medium brownies
- 20 pitted dates
- 4 tbsp water
- 4 tbsp nut or seed butter of choice, any will do
- 5 tbsp of cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 1,5 tsp baking soda
- A pinch of salt
For the cookie dough
- 40g oat flour (can be subbed for almond or coconut flour for paleo)
- 5 / 50g pitted dates
- 1 tsp of lucuma (for the caramel taste, can be skipped)
- 1 tsp peanut flour (can be substituted with more oat flour)
- 1 tbsp nut butter of choice
- 2-3 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice (my favourite is coconut or maple syrup)
- Eventually a dash of milk of choice for consistency
- 50g-80g roughly chopped chocolate/chocolate chips/cacao nibs
- Preheat the oven to 175°C / around 350°F.
- Simply mix all ingredients, except for the chocolate/cacao nibs, in a food processor until it forms a dough. Mix in the chocolate, roll into 16 small balls and let slighly set in the fridge in the meantime you make the brownies.
- For the brownie simply mix all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
- Prepare a medium baking tin, grease or line with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture into the tin and optionally top with some chopped chocolate of choice. Now just press down the cookie dough balls into the brownie batter.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes depending on the tin you’re using. Let cool for a couple of minutes and enjoy!
