The Best Ultra Fudgy Fig and Date Brownies
With a rich chocolate flavor, these flourless, vegan
brownies are packed with fiber and antioxidant-rich
superfoods including raw nuts, dates, figs, cacao,
coconut and applesauce. Making them the perfect
deliciously healthy treat! Makes 14-16 brownies.


• ½ cup almonds (75g)
• ¼ cup coconut sugar or monkfruit
• ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut or roasted
coconut chips (25g)
• ½ tsp baking soda
• ¼ tsp salt
• ½ cup cacao powder (50g)
• ½ cup medjool dates, pitted (about 6)
• 5 dried figs
• ½ cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• ¼ cup unsweetened coconut yogurt
• cup dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Oil or line a 8×8 inch baking dish
    with parchment paper. Lightly oil the dish or brush the
    parchment with coconut oil.
  2. Pour/spray with my mister a touch of oil to baking dish and
    use a paper towel to spread it around so the parchment
    paper sticks to pour the batter in easier. Set aside.
  3. Soak dates and figs in hot water for 10 min.
  4. In a food processor or high speed blender blend almonds
    until ground (like almond meal not paste). Then pulse in
    the cacao powder, sugar, salt and baking soda.
  5. Next add coconut yogurt, dates, figs and applesauce until
    you have a smooth batter. Then mix in chocolate chips.
  6. Pour batter into baking dish and spread evenly. Add
    chocolate chips on top (optional) and stick in the oven for
    25-30 min, depending on your oven. The brownies will still
    be soft, allow them cool for about 10 minutes before slicing.
