      Yum yum! I used about 15 dates also, once I finally found them - my regular grocery store didn't have them. Kids liked them too, yay! Made for PAC Spring '12.

      These were great! I had to try them because I just couldn't believe you could make brownies without flour! I made them three times, and the first time, I used an oil substitute, trying to really change them to ultra-healthy brownies. They were sweet but the consistency was not quite right. The second time, I used a 1/2 cup of applesauce (a kid's snack pack) in place of the oil, half the dates (about 10), and added 1/2 cup cocoa powder, and then threw some mini baking chocolate chips on top. The consistency was just right, but it needed to be a little sweeter. The third time, I increased dates to 15, and left the cocoa and applesauce at 1/2 cup each and they were awesome!. I think nuts would be a great addition, too. Thanks for the recipe!

      LOVE THESE!! I use 1/2 dates and 1/2 pitted prunes. Also add about 1/2 cup instant (decaf) coffee so the batter is less stiff!! CRAVE-able!!! Thank you, Kate-- for a TRULY sugar-free, scrumptious brownie!!

      I made the recipe the same but used egg whites instead of whole eggs. They are not as sweet as I would like them to be so maybe next time I will add 5 more dates. Also I can still taste some of the black beans flavor even though I used 1/2 cup cocoa powder and even a bit more melted butter and vanilla extract. So not sure if maybe my batch of dates were not as sweet as they should be?

      Ok, I tried this recipe as written (using 1/2 cup cocoa) only I mixed it in my Vitamix blender. I forgot how loud it is to mix dates. The recipe was really good. Love the texture. I frost by mixing semisweet chocolate chips with some whipping cream.
      Then I tried this with a slight variation:
      15 dates, 1 TBS oil, and 1/2 cup applesauce.

      My kids love both. DH prefers with applesauce. I prefer without. Again I frosted these with semisweet choc. chips and whipping cream.
