Properties of Brownie without eggs and without gluten

This recipe for homemade brownie is prepared with no eggs, flour and sugar. It is a preparation for a “raw” diet, so, it does not need cooking.

It is a dessert elaborated with only natural ingredients, rich in fiber, without flour or refined sugar. Ideal for people with allergies to milk, egg or gluten.

The brownie is made with a base of green bananas, dates and a little coconut milk, which will serve to make the dough. Then we add walnuts and cocoa powder (you could also use carob flour)

Overall it is a recipe with sugar (which would provide dates), but unlike other cakes, it contains much more fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamins.

  • Drain and mash some banana with a little coconut milk, to be added gradually. Banana is very effective and thickens very much, so it may not be necessary to use it all to make the dough.
  • In another bowl, mash the dates with a little coconut milk until a smooth, brownish and very sweet dough is formed (we use the dates in place of sugar).
  • Put the two masses together, the banana with dates. Add slowly and stir. It can also be crushed all at once, but this can be a bit more difficult because of the hardness of dates.
  • Add cocoa powder (about 4 tablespoons, to taste) and shelled walnuts. The dough should not be too liquid
