{gluten free & dairy free} Clean Brownies

I have only made this recipe in mini bite size Silicone molds.  It was a huge hit and they are perfect for fitting into the kid's Planetbox lunch system.

This recipe is sweetened only with dates and coconut sugar.

{gluten free & dairy free} Clean Brownies

  • 1/4 cup Organic (cold pressed) Coconut Oil (I love Barlean's), melted
  • 1/2 cup Water + 12 pitted dates (blended in Vitamix until creamy)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I recommend Ghirardelli)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Millet Flour
Optional: I added 5 mini Enjoy Life dairy free chocolates on top of each before baking. 


1) Mix coconut oil, "date water", 2 eggs, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl.
2) In a small bowl mix the cocoa powder, baking powder, sea salt, and millet flour.
3) Add the dry to the wet and mix well.
4) Add batter to whatever baking dish you will be using (spray with oil). I'm guessing 9 x 9 pan if you are going a full pan brownie route. I will have to update that later if I try it. 
5) Bake at 350 until toothpick comes out clean. Approx 13-18 minutes.
