Orange-Oatmeal Walnut-Date Brownies... Vegan, No Poured Oils


These are yummy, and compared to other brownies, pretty healthy.

Here are the list of Ingredients:

1 C.     Pitted Medjool Dates
3/4 C.  Hot Water
1 C.      Rolled Oats
1/2 C.   Walnut Pieces
1/2 C.   Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
3 T.       Maple Syrup
2 tsp.    Orange Extract (or Vanilla if you wish)
Pinch    Sea Salt

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/175C
  2. Pour hot water over the dates and let them sit in a bowl for about 10 minutes
  3. Drain the water off and then blend up the dates in a food processor, scraping down as you go
  4. Add oatmeal, walnuts, cocoa, baking powder, maple syrup, and sea salt.
  5. Process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as you go.
  6. In an 8"x8" pan, cover bottom with parchment paper and press in brownies
  7. Bake 20 minutes
  8. Let cool, and then cut into 16 pieces
  9. You may store the brownies for up to 5 days in the fridge (in an airtight container)
Using the information at FitnessPal.com, I calculate that each brownie has about 175 calories... AND a whopping 13g of fibre!!
