The Soft & Fudgy Date Brownies Recipe With Coconut Sugar is a date brownie that contains: all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and coconut sugar.

This date brownie recipe requires one bowl, a whisk or spoon, measuring cups and spoons, and an 8×8 inch baking pan.

The date brownies in this recipe will come out soft with a slight chewiness due to the addition of coconut sugar and dates. Coconut sugar is a healthier alternative to white sugar and is known for its caramel-like flavor. The date brownies are also gluten-free because we’re using gluten-free all-purpose flour.

To make these date brownies: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 inch baking with parchment paper so that it overhangs on all sides.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just blended. Fold in the dates.

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool date brownies in a pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes then lift them out of the pan by pulling on the parchment paper overhang. Cut date brownies into 16 squares (or whatever size you want). Serve date brownies at room temperature or chilled.

The date-sweetened brownies are date brownie that contains: almond flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, dark chocolate chips, eggs, vanilla extract, and Medjool dates.

This date brownie recipe also requires one bowl, a whisk or spoon, measuring cups and spoons, and an 8×8 inch baking pan.

The date brownies in this recipe will come out soft with a chewy texture due to the addition of Medjool dates. These date brownies are also gluten-free because we’re using almond flour instead of all-purpose flour.

To make these date brownies: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper so that it overhangs on all sides.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter and chocolate chips until smooth and combined. Remove date brownies from the heat then let cool for 10 minutes. Stir in eggs one at a time then stir in vanilla extract until well combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until blended (do not overmix). Fold in Medjool dates then spread date mixture into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick or cake tester comes out with moist crumbs attached.

Let date brownies cool in a pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes then lift them out of the pan by pulling on the parchment paper overhang. Cut date brownies into 16 squares (or whatever size you want). Serve date brownies at room temperature or chilled.
