These are the kind of brownies you lay in bed and dream about at night and try and remind yourself that getting out of bed to make brownies at 1:24am isn’t actually the best idea.
Excuse my use of a complete cringe word, but these brownies are so MOIST and super chocolatey! But I promise there is no butter or dairy, or even refined sugar.

The center is a chia seed jam (my recipe is here), made with fresh berries and chia seeds (and sweetener of your choice if you like). Chia seeds are high in good fats, protein & fibre, and the whole jam is packed with antioxidants, which means that you can enjoy your sweet treat and know it’s doing you body a lot of GOOD!!!
Now, can you say that about a McCafe fudgey brownie? No!

To make brownies:

Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius or 360 degrees Fahrenheit

  1. Before you start you need to have soaked your chia egg AND made your strawberry chia jam (recipe for chia jam here).
  2. Make abrownie 3 squarelmond flour by processing your almonds in a food processor, or, like I did, a Nutribullet. Alternatively, you can use almond flour
  3. Add almond flour, cacao powder and vanilla bean/powder to a mixing bowl
  4. Add your pitted dates to a sauce pan on medium-low heat. Start to mash them with a fork as they heat. Mash until they start to break down. You may also need to add a LITTLE bit of water or coconut milk to ensure everything does not burn.
  5. Add your coconut sugar to the pan with the dates. Keep them cooking on low-medium heat until the dates have all broken down and the sugar is dissolved. This should take about 5-10 minutes.
  6. While you wait for your dates to finish cooking, grab your chia egg from the fridge
    . I blended mine in my nutribullet for about 2 minutes, pausing and mixing in-between. I also had to add a LITTLE bit more coconut milk to get it to blend, but be really careful not to add too much!!! This step was inspired by @leelouandharla on instagram, who beat her chia egg until it was fluffy like a meringue.
  7. When your dates are ready add them, along with your chia egg, to your mixing bowl with your dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  8. Pour mixture into a greased or lined brownie tray and bake for about 30 minutes
  9. Remove your heavenly smelling brownies from the oven and allow them to cool. Once they have cooled, slice them into evenly sized squares.
  10. Spread strawberry chia jam onto a brownie and sandwich it with another brownie!
    TAKE A HUGE BITE AND BE PREPARED TO WANT TO EAT THE WHOLE TRAY!!!!
