Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 glass baking dish with aluminum foil then spray foil with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Add almond milk, spinach, pea protein, chocolate peanut butter powder, and honey to high speed blender and blend until smooth with no traces of the spinach leaves - approximate 20-30 seconds.
  • Add dates and peanut butter to food processor and process on high for 20 seconds. Stop and scrape sides, then blend another 10 seconds or so.
  • Add spinach/milk/pea protein mixture from blender to date and peanut butter mixture, then process 15-20 seconds.
  • Finally, add almond flour and cacao powder and continue blending another 20-30, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Texture should be a thick, smooth consistency - see photos.
  • Add batter to greased dish and bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted around outer section comes out clean. Allow to cool at least 15-20 minutes before cutting and FULLY cool before storing. (I like to bake mine right at 18 minutes, leaving them a little underdone so they're really fudgy!)
  • Store at room temperature in air tight container for 2-3 days or refrigerate for up to a week. If stored in refrigerator, allow to come to room temperature before serving for optimal gooeyness. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If dates are dry, soak in water for 10-15 minutes then drain, prior to using in instructions above.
  • If you don't have chocolate peanut butter powder, regular peanut butter powder will work.
