“I created this recipe with inspiration from a really good traditional fudgy brownie recipe and the techniqes I've learned from Barbara Cousins (Cooking Without series). They are quite good, just not right out of the oven. The batter tastes lovely and they are chocolatey when they are cool. I didn't create these as allergy free, but to meet the health choices we have made, not eating wheat or sugar, or using milk. Sorry to disappoint anyone!”

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C/325°F.
  2. If you have a food processor or chopper, chop the oats until fine.
  3. Heat the dates and water on low until the water is absorbed and the dates are soft.
  4. Allow the dates to cool a bit, then stir in or process the dates with the butter.
  5. Add the vanilla and eggs, then the cocoa powder and oats, stirring or processing until combined.
  6. Bake in a small pan (about 9"x7") for 15 minutes. Brownies will be cooked, but fudgy.
