A Healthier Brownies You Will love it
1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with coconut oil (you can also line with parchment if you want to be able to easily lift them from pan).
2-Add almond flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, dates, honey, coconut oil and vanilla to a food processor.
3-Process until well blended and dates have been finely ground down, about 1 minute.
4-Add in one egg and pulse about 15 times (or as needed) to blend then repeat with second eggs. Stir in chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
5-Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until brownies are set (a toothpick will still come out with crumbs), about 20 – 25 minutes.
6-Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Once cool store in an airtight container.
7-If you want the optional chocolate syrup, in a microwave-safe bowl heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil and 1 Tbsp honey in microwave until coconut oil is melted. Stir in cocoa. Let cool slightly for a thicker consistency.

So what makes these healthier from a normal brownie??
-No white sugar, instead these use Medjool dates to sweeten them and honey.
-No butter, instead there’s coconut oil and about 1/2 the amount of fat you’d normally add to brownies.
-And no white flour. Here we go with almond flour and no one will notice.
-Then if you are in for a little extra decadence add the mini chocolate chips. Really I just added the chocolate sauce for looks but feel free to add that too if you’d like, I listed it in the notes at the bottom.
-Or sprinkle with a hint of powdered sugar that’s always a good brownie topping.
-They aren’t really intended to be a low-calorie dessert but rather a smarter choice made with healthier ingredients versus that of your traditional brownie.
