Author Dia Kline for ezjoLife.com


  • 1 cup Tigernut Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp GF Baking Soda
  • 4-6 oz 100% Baking Chocolate
  • 14 pitted Dates *soak in hot water for 10 min to soften
  • 4 Tbsp Date Syrup
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil or Leaf Lard (melted)
  • 1/4 tsp Liquid Vanilla Stevia *not Glycerin


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8 x 8 baking dish with coconut oil or leaf lard.

  2. Add tigernut flour, salt and baking soda into Cuisinart (food processor) and pulse until combined

  3. Add chocolate chunks and pulse until combined. You want the chocolate to be in tiny pieces

  4. Add whole pitted dates and pulse until combined. Again, pulse until the dates are in tiny pieces

  5. Add eggs and pulse until combined

  6. Add coconut oil or leaf lard, date syrup and stevia. Pulse until smooth. This will be a thick batter

  7. Add batter to greased baking dish. Smooth it with your spatula or a damp hand

  8. Bake 22-24 minutes

  9. Cool on baking rack and try not to eat until cool. 


Recipe Notes

I prefer using coconut oil but if that taste is too strong, try leaf lard. It is a clean tasting fat that won't bring any additional taste into the brownie.
