Gluten Free Mocha Brownies

One of my favorite stores to shop for new and interesting natural foods and bath/body porducts is Abe's Market. They sell products that you really won't find anywhere else at great prices. The selection is amazing and I've discovered some amazing stuff on this site. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to eat/shop/live green and natural.

My Abe's find of the day is this unusual recipe for gluten free mocha brownies. I haven't tried it yet but I do love all the stuff inside like dates, cocoa and garbonzo beans,  so hopefully that will make for some yummy brownies :) 

Gluten Free Mocha Brownies

Brownie Ingredients
15 Medjool dates, pitted, soaked and drained
¼ cup water
9 T raw cocoa
¼ cup agave syrup
¼ cup coconut oil, soft, not liquid
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
4 eggs
½ tsp baking powder
2 T espresso, ground fine

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Blend dates (in a blender) and ¼ cup water on high until it becomes a paste
3. Add eggs, cocoa, agave, coconut oil, baking powder and espresso; blend until smooth
4. Add garbanzo beans; mix on high until entire mixture is well incorporated, thick and smooth
5. Evenly distribute mixture into mini muffin tins (fills 30-32)
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (until it passes the toothpick test); remove and cool on a wire rack

 

Abe's is also a great resource for healthy kids snacks, bath and body and everyday supplies like pacifiers.
