  • Greased muffin tin


  • 1 cup of dates pitted and soaked in hot water for 30 minutes
  • 4-5 tablespoons of cacao depending on how chocolatey you like your brownies
  • ½ cup applesauce or nut butter if you want a more nutty/denser taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave
  • Dash of salt and cinnamon
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • After your dates have soaked, blend them with ¼ cup of water until they form a pasty batter. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again. You want the final texture to be semi-moist but firm enough to hold itself together. You may need to add more water if the batter comes out too dry.
  • Fill the greased muffin tin ⅔ of the way up.
  • Plop into the oven for 12-15 minutes and enjoy!
