If you’re trying to cut refined sugar out of your diet but still have a sweet tooth, date brownies are where it’s at.

Dates are naturally super sweet and their chewy texture lends itself well to brownies.

And whether they’re sugary or not, there’s still tons of dark chocolate and cocoa powder in these treats, so you really can’t go wrong.

Pro tip: Use butter made from milk from grass-fed cows, like Kerrygold. It’s better for your health, the environment, and your taste buds.
