Strawberry and Date Brownies

Yes, yes, yes! These brownies are simply amazing, and richly flavored with cocoa and fresh strawberries, and oh-so-fudgy good.

They’re completely oil-free, sugar-free, flour-free, and gluten-free, and of course, deliciously vegan. I hope you adore them as much as we do. xo

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 20 Medjool dates pitted
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries rinsed, and patted dry, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Into the bowl of a food processor (I use a large Cuisinart), add oats, cocoa, and baking powder. Process for a few seconds. Add banana, dates, and 2 cups of the strawberries, and vanilla. (Save the final cup of berries for the top.)
  • Process until the mixture is well combined.
  • Remove bowl and blade from the base. Divide batter evenly, filling either a silicone brownie-bites pan or a nonstick miniature muffin pan. (I had enough batter to fill 30 sections, so I needed to use 2 pans.)
  • Use the remaining cup of berries to dot the top of the brownies. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until almost completely firm.
  • Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Allow to cool, and enjoy!

      I’m so sorry to hear that the banana was overpowering for you. Perhaps if you used a banana that was a little less ripe it would suit you better. We love these at my house and cannot make them fast enough. : )

      Thank you for sharing your experience. In our house we can’t make these fast enough! Sounds like banana and chocolate aren’t your thing. I wonder if you used a banana that wasn’t as ripe if it might have suited your tastebuds more.

    I had frozen strawberries so sliced them, still had good size pieces in the brownies. I liked the final product, like chocolate covered strawberries. I added two tablespoons of whole wheat flour as the batter looked wet. Don’t know if it was really needed. Recipe made more than I expected. I’ll make this again and want to try it with cherries
