We are a chocolate loving family over here. We love our almond flour brownies, however, many people have asked for alternatives to almond flour. I finally developed an absolutely delicious, nutrient rich brownie that everyone can enjoy. I found that these do taste better after they have been chilled in the fridge. They taste great out of the oven, they have a fudgey texture once chilled. These brownies are gluten free, grain free, nut free, refined sugar free and have a dairy free option.

Dates are natures candy. They have a wonderful caramelly flavor, amazingly sweet and the best part is they are so good for you. Full of fiber, they fill us up, help keep our glucose levels stable, and have cholesterol lowering properties. They are anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic. They are an excellent source of iron, very good source of potassium, calcium, manganese, copper and magnesium. Also a moderate source of vitamin A, B-complex group, and vitamin K. Dates, honey and maple syrup are my sweeteners of choice. Each have their own health benefits, however, dates have the most and are my favorite.
