These brownies are so good! When you eat them, you will swear that they are not sugar-free/grain-free. Yet they are!

I found a recipe for these Magic Brownie Bars on the The Happy Runner who found it on Paleo OMG. They looked delicious and since I’ve been craving dessert, I had to try them. Still wanting to be basically sugar-free with my eating. I had to change up the recipe a bit.

Ingredients

Brownie layer:
15 dried medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup coconut manna (liquified) or coconut oil or coconut butter
1/4 cup unsweetened dark cocoa
1 tbs coconut flour
1 tbs tapioca flour
3 eggs, whisked
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

Coconut layer:
1-1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbs coconut butter
2 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs honey
2 egg whites

Directions

Preheat the oven to 365 degrees (yup, that’s 365).

Put dates in a food processor and process until they form a clump. Add coconut manna and cocoa and process until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients and process until combined and smooth.

Spread into an 8 x 8 pan lined with parchment paper spray with coconut oil.

For the coconut layer, mix first 3 ingredients together in a bowl. Add well-whisked egg whites and stir to combine.

Pour topping over the brownie layer and spread to cover the whole surface.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars and enjoy!
