"Oh my Gosh! These are the most gorgeous brownies I have ever had! They are totally awesome, and no one will ever guess that they are so healthy! Completely vegan, gluten and refined sugar free! And the taste is fantastic!"

Ingredients Serves 6

  • 1.5 cup gluten-free flour mix
  • 1 cup carob or cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups soft dates
  • 1 banana
  • 1 (15-oz) can red beans
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 oz/30 g chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine 1.5 cup of gluten-free flour mix, 1 cup of carob (or cacao) powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

  2. Blend 2 cups of soft dates together with 1 cup of water. If your dates are firm, soak them in warm water for at least 30 minutes, or until sof. I recommend soak the dates in one cup of water and then just blend the dates together with this water.

  3. Add 1 banana, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and beans (drained and rinsed). Process until smooth.

  4. Pour the wet mixture into a bowl with dry ingredients. Mix well and make sure there are no dry stuff left at the bottom of the bowl. You will get a thick dough.

  5. Line 8x8 inches (20x20 cm) form with parchment paper. Spread the batter into the baking dish and level with spatula.
    As you can see, my baking dish is a little bit bigger than 8x8, but for this recipe it's not a problem. I just bent the edge of the parchment to make a border, and that's worked.

  6. Melt peanut butter on a low heat or in a microwave. Dollop it over the batter and create swirls with knife.
