Recipe by Papagayita

Decadent tasting, dark chocolate, with tons of protein, added fruits and veggies and no added oil. Very flexible recipe. I usually make this with eggs since I'm not vegan just dairy free at this point but have made them successfully with chia and/or flax seed eggs. Use whatever veggies and fruit you have on hand-I've used apples, pears, bananas (adds a bit of a banana taste), spinach, etc. Add sugar and cocoa powder to your taste preferences. As described they are semi-sweet and fairly dark chocolate. My non-vegan version is also on this site:

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak dates in 1 C warm water for 30 minutes- 1 hour (optional-can substitute 1/2 C sugar).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 pan (for thinner brownies). For thicker brownies (over 1/2") use a smaller pan.
  3. Create flax eggs-combining ground flax with 6 T water. Stir and let set for 15 minutes.
  4. In a food processor, combine dates, soaking water, pears, and carrots. Blend until pureed.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients (cocoa powder, flours, salt, baking soda). Stir to combine and mix in wet ingredients (milk, pureed mixture, vanilla, flax eggs).
  6. Fold in chocolate chips and pour into baking pan.
  7. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until middle is mostly set. Top with marshmallows and broil for 1-2 minutes until browned.
  8. Remove and enjoy!
