Vegan & Gluten-Free Date Brownies

Leave a comment

Here is another dessert that’s on the healthier side.



How are these healthy, Sofia? This question might have popped into your head, so i’ll tell you.

This brownies are vegan, gluten-free, AND even sugar free.

How does this even taste good, Sofia? That’s another great question.

This recipe uses yummy alternatives like almond milk, dates, and coconut.

Are you sure these taste good?? Um, yes. I’m pretty sure these taste undoubtedly delicious!

It’s been awhile since I baked anything vegan and gluten free for my vegan and gluten free dad (sorry dad) and so I thought that I should try to make something for him and for anyone who want a healthier dessert option.






You can eat this in slices like a cake or you could do what I did and cut it into bite sized brownie pieces.

This is also optional, but I topped the dessert with some shredded coconut.


I loved how this dessert turned out I’m sure you would too! For the recipe, look below!
