Recipe created by Jonny Bowden, CNS and Jeannette Bessinger, authors of “The Healthiest Meals on Earth” (Fair Winds)


1 ¼ cups (about 10 oz.) pitted dates (Deglet/Noor)

            I had

9 Tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa powder


¼ cup macadamia nut oil.  I used toasted walnut oil cause that is what I had


½ cup raw honey


2 cups canned garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained


4 eggs


½ teas. Baking powder


1 teas. Ground cinnamon


Preheat over to 350 F. Measure dates into liquid measuring cup, pour in hot water to the 1 ½ cup line, turning the dates over until the water reaches all the dates.  Let sit for at least 10 min.   Pour off and discard ¼ cup of the liquid, and process the remaining liquid and dates in a blender or food processor until a smooth paste forms.

Put the date paste into a large bowl, and add the cacao or cocoa powder, oil and honey, mixing well.  Combine the beans and eggs in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.  Add the bean mix to the date mix stiring well.  Add the baking powder and cinnamon.  Stir.  Pour the batter into a 9 x 13in. nonstick or well greased pan.  Bake for 40-45 min. until the toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for at least 15 min.   Makes 18 brownies.
