Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

A few words on why I love my blender… Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Chic Pea. Brownies.

Oh my goodness… I was having a craving and feeling creative!! I wanted something sweet and fudgie, decadent and of course delicious but also vegan, gluten-free, and free of refined sugars. Sounds like a challenge right? Well, If I do say so myself, I totally rose to the challenge!! :o)

This is truly sweet, simple and delicious!

My ingredients:

And here is my vegan, gluten-free, decadent chocolate peanut butter brownie recipe:

IMG_0155

1 can of chic peas, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup cacao powder

5 medjool dates (soaked)

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt (to taste)

1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

  • Pre-soak dates either over night or pour boiling water over them and soak for one hour, remove pits.
  • In the blender, add all ingredients except the vegan chocolate chips.
  • Blend on medium, scraping down the sides as needed. you can switch to high and scape down if you would like. The batter will be quite thick.
  • Add in the vegan chocolate chips and just mix. You can add them all or save out a couple of tablespoons to sprinkle over the top.
  • Scoop batter into a parchment paper lined 9×9 pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes
  • Cool in pan on rack until completely cooled.

While your amazingly delicious brownies are cooling you can whip up a little peanut butter sauce to be used as you would  like. This sauce is so delicious you may have to stop yourself from just eating it all with a spoon. (I hope I am not the only one!)
