Gooey PB Brownies

Who doesn’t love a brownie? They are delightful! Ooey and Gooey, with the right amount of sweetness. Unfortunately they are also filled with ingredients that pile on the pounds very quickly.

But you still need to satisfy that sweet tooth!

With this recipe you will be able to! These brownies are made using all healthy ingredients and healthy fat. So make these, grab one, and feel good about your choice 🙂

For this recipe you will need:

-1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
-1/4 cup of PB2
-1/4 cup of splenda
-1/4 cup of splenda brown sugar
-1/4 tsp of baking powder
-1/4 tsp of salt
-10 dried dates
-3/4 cup of water
-1 Tablespoon of coconut oil (melted)
-1/3 cup of natural applesauce
-2 teaspoons of vanilla
-2 Tablespoons of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

For the PB Glaze:

-1 Tablespoon of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2 tsp of vanilla
-1 Tablespoon of powdered sugar
-2 1/2 Tablespoons of PB2

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Start by chopping up 10 dates and placing them in 3/4 cup of water to help soften them. Add the vanilla to the bowl. You are going to let this sit while you prep the other ingredients.

And then I placed in the fridge overnight so the glaze would set. You can tent tin foil over the top

In the morning, cut into 9 equal pieces

I LOVE the middle of the brownie pan. I hate the edges! Growing up G-Mama would always save me the middle and label it for me 😉

So delicious!

They are so incredibly moist. The dates really make it, and you cannot even taste them (in case you hate dates). They just help to make them gooey!

Look at that glaze!

Happy eating…

  3. Hi,

    These look great! But where’s the nutritional info? I see last February you were calculating it, but I can’t see it on here anywhere.

    Thanks!
