Unlike the conventional two-bite brownie, these guys are a nutritious dessert option or snack. They have a cake-like consistency and are just the right sweetness without being overpowering. This recipe is not autoimmune friendly, however, they are nut-free for those of us with nut allergies. I will call this brownie recipe version 1.0 because I would like to improve upon it in the future, but for now I will share what I came up with. They weren’t exactly what I was aiming for, but I really liked how they turned out!


Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Makes: 12 two-bite brownies





  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dates
  • 1-2 tbsp hot water (optional)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda


Preheat oven to 350F. Add the unsweetened baking chocolate to a double boiler or a bowl sitting in a pan with water (like this) and heat gently on the stove. Grind the chia seeds in a small blender or coffee grinder and add them to a mixing bowl. Add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda to this bowl as well. Depending on what type of dates you are using you may need to add hot water with them to soften them. Put your dates in a food processor. If you are using medjool dates you will not have to do this, but if your dates are very dry add 1-2 tbsp hot water to the food processor as well. Process dates into a paste. Add eggs, maple syrup, date paste, liquid coconut oil, vanilla, and the now melted baking chocolate to the mixing bowl and combine all ingredients thoroughly.

I used small sized parchment cups in a regular sized muffin tin made to hold 12 muffins. Spoon approximately 2 tablespoons of batter into each parchment cup until it is divided evenly. Place in oven and bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.



These guys are pretty tasty with a glass of milk or milk substitute (like almond milk),

I hope you enjoy!

  1. These are good. I made them with hemp seeds instead of chia seeds and melted the coconut oil in the double boiler with the chocolate. Finally I sifted the dry ingredients and then mixed them into the liquid in the food processor. I might add a bit more oil to make them more moist next time I try them. thanks, Tawny!
