With Valentine’s Day around the corner it’s the perfect time of year for chocolate.  These brownies are dense and delicious, sweetened only with some dates so you can  enjoy  a rich, decadent, chocolate dessert without the sugar rush.

To me nothing is better than a fudgy brownie with a large glass of milk, it’s perfection. Due to the lack of sugar in these brownies they do not last quite as long as a traditional brownies; but, I’ll take a short shelf life over a sugar head ache any day. If you plan on keeping them for longer than three days throw them in the freezer, they hold up great! I usually keep have the batch out and put the other half in the freezer for an emergency chocolate snack. Because chocolate emergencies are definitely a real thing.

    Those look amazing! I’ve actually just started a food blog, just writing wee things about dining out in places in Glasgow. Things have been tough for me over the last few years but food is something that has always brought me comfort (not necessarily a good thing hahaha). Would love it if you were interested and wanted to have a look or give me a follow, it would mean a lot.
