Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

Low-fat chocolate glaze:

Instructions

  • Grind the flax seeds in an electric spice/coffee grinder or blender until it's flour. You can also use 65 g of store-bought GROUND flax seeds but make sure the flax meal is fresh.
  • Process all dry ingredients in a food processor, then add the dates and vanilla extract and blend until the dough sticks together when you press it between your fingers. It might take a while until the dough comes together. If it's still too dry after some minutes add a few additional dates or a little maple syrup or raw agave syrup. The dates should be very soft and juicy. If they aren't moist soak them in warm water until they are soft.
  • Line a 5-inch square baking pan (double the recipe if you have an 8-inch or 9-inch baking pan) with parchment paper and leave about a 2-inch overhang on both sides. Grease the paper with a little oil.
  • Transfer the brownie dough into the pan and press it down firmly.
  • To make the glaze, just combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix everything together with a whisk.
  • Pour the glaze over the brownie dough and put the pan into the freezer for about 1 hour to set.
  • Cut into 16 equal brownie bites and enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

  • If the dates aren't soft/moist enough I highly recommend soaking them in (warm) water until they are soft.
  • You can skip the powdered peanut butter in the chocolate glaze and use 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp of regular peanut butter (or any other nut/seed butter). However, I would recommend adding more cocoa powder otherwise the glaze might be too runny.
  • The Nutrition Facts are for one serving if you cut the batch into 16 brownie bites. Calculation includes the low-fat glaze (made with powdered peanut butter).
