Squeaky Clean Fudge Brownies (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Vegan)


8 pitted dates (56gm)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup (30gm) sorghum flour
1/4 cup (30gm) peanut flour
1/2 cup (60gm) almond meal
1/2 cup (40gm) natural unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup (80gm) pumpkin puree
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper. Place the dates in a bowl and cover with piping hot water. Let sit while you measure out the remaining ingredients.

Weigh the dry ingredients (sorghum flour through salt) into a bowl and whisk together.

Place the applesauce, pumpkin, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to the bowl of a food processor. Drain the dates and add these as well. Process until smooth, about 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Pour the dry ingredients into the food processor bowl and process to combine, stopping to scrape down the sides of the work bowl if necessary. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking dish, smoothing into an even layer with a rubber spatula.

Bake for 27-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs. Cool thoroughly before slicing.
