Deliciously fudgy and frosted, these vegan low fat brownies are easy healthy decadence in just 5 ingredients! Gluten-free, oil-free, date-sweetened.



  • 15 pitted Medjool dates (about 1 1/4 cup)
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ cup baked and mashed sweet potato
  • ½ cup cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • Healthy Vegan Chocolate Frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Blend the dates and water on high until very smooth.
  3. Remove 1/4 cup of the date paste and set aside for the frosting.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender. Blend on low speed until combined. Do not over blend.
  5. Line or lightly oil a baking pan. Place the batter into the pan and spread evenly. (I used a 5×7″ pan. Smaller pan = thicker brownies.)
  6. Bake for 40 mins at 350F.
  7. Let them cool completely before frosting.
  8. Enjoy at room temperature or I prefer them chilled! Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
