Date Brownies

As an easy and less expensive way to pack in daily amounts of protein and fiber, these brownies take no more than 30 minutes to whip up.

Recipe:

1 cup of dates

3/4 cup of hot water

1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Trader Joe’s Cocoa Powder)

3/4 cup of almond meal (significant source of protein)

5 tablespoons of honey

2 teaspoons of bourbon vanilla (Again, from Trader Joe’s)

Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

Set the oven to 350 degrees

Combine the hot water and dates in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain water from the bowl and pour the dates into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add in the almond meal and blend until combined. Do the same with the cocoa powder. Then, add in the honey and vanilla to finish it off. Scoop the mix out of the food processor and press into a brownie pan. Sprinkle sea salt over brownies to complete!
