Coconut Brownies (No Grains, No Sugar)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Aimee88

We don't eat grains or refined sugar, so I'm always on the lookout for tasty homemade treats with top notch ingredients. I came up with this recipe after finding that organic dessicated coconut (no sweetener added) was affordable! I started with the idea of a pie crust recipe I had from someone else and evolved it into these brownies. Preparation time includes the stewing of the dates.

For some unknown reason I can have a limited amount of dates although I can't have fructose and have trouble with most fresh fruit. This recipe is very easy and extremely tasty. Not so very sweet - just how I like it! DH was raving because he is fond of coconut everything - so I'll sure make this again! Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
