What You'll Need


½ cup rolled oats

½ cup cocoa powder

2 tsp baking powder

1 ripe banana

20 Medjool dates, pitted

3 cups fresh strawberries

2 tsp vanilla


How to Make It


1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2 Into the bowl of a food processor, add oats, cocoa, and baking powder. Process for a few seconds. Add banana, dates, and 2 cups of the strawberries (rinsed, patted dry, and halved), and vanilla. Save the third cup of berries for the top.

3 Process until the mixture is well combined.

4 Remove bowl and blade from the base. Divide batter evenly, filling either 1 or 2 silicone brownie-bites pans or nonstick miniature muffin pans.

5 Use the remaining cup of berries to dot the top of the brownies. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until almost completely firm.

6 Remove from the oven and place on cooling rack.
