Fudge-Tastic Brownies (Vegan + Gluten-free + Grain-free + Nut-free)

Grain Free Fudgy Brownies

by Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Lightly adapted from Elana’s Pantry


  • 1/2 cup mashed frozen banana or 1/2 cup date puree (approximately 6-8 dates soaked in 1 cup water for an hour, drained, then blended to make 1/2 cup mixture)
  • 1 cup roasted sunflower butter
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds, mixed with 3 tablespoons water to form a paste
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey, brown rice syrup, or date syrup
  • 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 10 drops stevia concentrate
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking soda
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare an 8×8 baking dish with coconut oil. Ensure all nooks and crannies are well oiled. The mixture naturally has oil, so I didn’t bother using parchment.
  2. In a food processor , combine bananas, sunflower butter and chia seed mix. Process until smooth.
  3. Add in coconut oil, date syrup, xylitol, stevia and vanilla. Again, process until smooth before adding cacao, salt and baking soda
  4. Transfer batter into a well greased 8×8 inch Pyrex baking dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the sides begin to get golden.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Cut in the pan into 16 squares and have at ‘er!
