Sugar-Free Fudgy Two-Bite Brownies

35 min




10 ingredients or less

Brownies should be full of chocolate flavour, moist, and chewy. They can't be too oily, dry, or overly sweet. Luckily, these are lovely little fudgy bites. The combination of nut butter and dates gives them a perfectly chewy texture and a rich flavour.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). In a large bowl, combine the ground flaxseeds and milk. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add the roasted hazelnuts and dates and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer the mixture to the large bowl as well, and add all the remaining ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  4. Line or oil a mini muffin tin, and spoon a tablespoon of batter into each well. Bake on the centre rack for 22 - 25 minutes or until the top is firm and a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the tin. Enjoy!

I made these and they were absolutely delicious and moist.

Alex - March 17, 2024, 8:44 p.m.

Have made these multiple times! They're so easy, and SO rich and delicious. 10/10 would recommend!

Kaitlyn Youmans - Jan. 22, 2024, 6:55 a.m.

Very good! Thought we had cocoa powder but we didn’t so I just used baking chocolate cocoa bar. They were yummy! Not super sweet but not overwhelmingly tart. It’s nice eating them and knowing they don’t have sugar :)

Ashleigh Davies - Jan. 15, 2024, 9:48 p.m.

Absolutely delicious. Really gooey inside and full of flavour. The photo shows chocolate chips they aren’t in the ingredients so I added some dark and worked we. Thanks

PUL Team - Jan. 16, 2024, 12:02 a.m.

Hey Ashleigh! We have ⅓ cup (56 g) dairy-free dark chocolate chips listed at the bottom of the ingredients list 😃

Ashleigh Davies - Jan. 16, 2024, 8:27 p.m.

Thanks 😊

Salome V Ingen - Jan. 13, 2024, 8:13 p.m.

Crazy yummy!!! Im doing a sugar free month and this hits thé spot when I crave something sweet 😇 tip; I add some oats for extra bite!

Michelle Kooi - Jan. 9, 2024, 5:32 p.m.

This tastes so good. My brownies did stick to the pan. It could have been me though.

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 10:46 p.m.

Hey there, Michelle, thanks for taking the time to share the review! Lining the muffin tin or adding more oil can help avoid them from sticking. We also find a non-stick pan can do wonders if that's desirable and accessible 🤗

Violeta - Dec. 31, 2023, 4:20 p.m.

I’ve been making this recipe for every get together with friends and they always ask for the recipe. My only remark is to use high quality dates. When I made it with dates that were a bit harder the texture was different.

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2024, 2:56 a.m.

We're so happy that the Two-Bite Brownies are being enjoyed, Violeta, and thanks for the tip!

Margarita - Dec. 19, 2023, 6:57 p.m.

Oh My God! This is an amazing recipe, I made it for the second time today,swapping almond butter for peanut butter and it is delicious!!Thank you Sadya!!!

PUL Team - Dec. 20, 2023, 8:38 a.m.

Woohoo! Thanks a bunch, Margarita, we're happy to hear 😃

visalakshi radhakrishnan - Dec. 7, 2023, 11:17 a.m.

This is the healthiest brownie recipe I have ever seen 🥰😋. Will definitely do try and share my review for the same.

PUL Team - Dec. 7, 2023, 5:23 p.m.

Hope you love the brownies, Visalakshi!

Amanda - Dec. 7, 2023, 12:31 a.m.

Perfect after school treat for the kiddos, and me (of course). Delish!

Lis - Nov. 6, 2023, 8:56 p.m.

I’m trying to curb my appetite for refined sugars and this recipe has helped me a lot! They’re not too sweet but still sweet enough to satisfy :)

mel - Nov. 5, 2023, 4 p.m.

Very easy to make and even my picky Eater liked them

Michele - Sept. 22, 2023, 4:10 a.m.

My favorite brownies :)

Ranee - Aug. 13, 2023, 8:36 a.m.

This is so delicious I didn’t know medjopl dates could make brownie so yummy! Always love your dessert recipes

Melanie - Aug. 8, 2023, 12:01 a.m.

My favourite brownie recipe. So good!

Elsa - Aug. 4, 2023, 12:46 a.m.

I undercooked mine for a bit and absolutely loved how gooey they were!!! Such an easy recipe for when you want something sweet but not too unhealthy.

Suzanne - July 29, 2023, 2:27 p.m.

So moist and delicious! My 9 year old helped to make them while my littlest one ate them all up! Delicious!

PUL Team - July 30, 2023, 7:26 p.m.

Aww so lovely of your kiddo to help! So happy to hear, Suzanne 😊

bash - July 21, 2023, 5:39 p.m.

Yummy and healthy

Sam - July 4, 2023, 4:44 p.m.

I made these last night. Instead of almond butter, I used more hazelnuts and blended them with dates to make a sweet hazelnut butter. The brownie bites turned out to be super decadent and amazing! Love how easy this recipe is…. Can’t wait for my friends to try it tonight.

PUL Team - July 6, 2023, 2:33 a.m.

Ooo sounds so lovely, Sam, thank you! 😃

Rex - June 26, 2023, 7:04 p.m.

Amazing and delicious! Super easy to make.

Nicola - June 22, 2023, 11:49 p.m.

These look amazing ☺️ is there a way to make them totally sugar free, so an alternative for the dates? I’m thinking that might be a hard one, but trying to reduce my overall sugar intake due to treatment. Thank you xx

PUL Team - June 23, 2023, 1:45 a.m.

Hey there, Nicola, the dates add stickiness and sweetness to the brownies so we're not confident about a substitute without experimenting with it. Perhaps more nut butter and gelled flaxseeds could be worth testing out? We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try, and wishing you an abundance of health and wellness 🤗

Maggie - June 10, 2023, 12:13 a.m.

So quick to make and just the right amount of chocolate. Made extra for the freezer and very happy I did!

Helen - June 9, 2023, 6:37 a.m.

These sound delish! Do you have baking time modifications if I use normal cupcake tins? I don't have mini ones!

PUL Team - June 10, 2023, 4:57 p.m.

Hey Helen! We haven't tried so can't say with certainty. We'd recommend keeping a close eye on the pan since the batter thickness and ovens may vary. As a heads up, you may find these ones come out thinner than desired if opting for a regular pan, although forming little patties by hand and spreading out the batter should help. Let us know if you experiment with it! 🤗

Helen - June 11, 2023, 11:47 p.m.

I ended up making it into a "traditional" brownie by spreading it into a slab! Just cut them into little squares, and baked for 25 mins. So so so good!

PUL Team - June 12, 2023, 3:09 a.m.

Ooo a lovely idea, Helen, thanks for the update!

brie - May 4, 2023, 2:17 p.m.

I cannot get hazelnuts here. Any suggestions for alternatives?

PUL Team - May 4, 2023, 9:12 p.m.

Hey there, Brie, you're welcome to use any nut of choice! We've also heard many positive reviews with almond flour in place of the hazelnuts 🤗

Simone - March 22, 2023, 8:26 p.m.

Easy recipe and very delicious! Yummy!
I didn´t had a mini muffin tin so I made it like brownie. Works too ;-)

PUL Team - March 23, 2023, 6:44 a.m.

Mmm a lovely modification, Simone 😃

Cathy - March 18, 2023, 12:35 a.m.

These brownies are yummy. They’re very chocolatey but not too sweet.

Jia - March 1, 2023, 6:26 a.m.

Hi! I'm wondering if I could use almond flour instead of grinding the hazelnuts. What do you think?

PUL Team - March 1, 2023, 9:33 p.m.

Hey Jia, we've heard positive reviews with almond flour in place of the hazelnuts 🤗

Jia - July 27, 2023, 6:12 a.m.

It turned out great! Thank you^^

Bianca Ohlin - Feb. 3, 2023, 9:07 p.m.

I like the simple ingredients, it’s fast and tasty. Easy to follow instructions, just my cup of tea.

PUL Team - Feb. 4, 2023, 4:12 a.m.

Thank you, Bianca!

Stephanie Curtis - Jan. 20, 2023, 10:07 p.m.

Absolutely amazing ♥️♥️

Salome van Ingen - May 10, 2022, 4:09 p.m.

I was not expecting these mini brownies to taste SO good!
My family was amazed by the subtle taste (they were afraid it'd be too sweet, and it wasn't!)
So easy to make. Absolutely making this again! <3

PUL Team - May 10, 2022, 4:53 p.m.

Awe it mean so much that they're being enjoyed, Salome van Ingen, thanks a bunch 🤗

Marsha - Sept. 6, 2021, 8:12 p.m.

Sugar free fudge 2-bite brownie Review;
I loved this. Very simple to make. I had dates remaining and didn't know what to do until found this recipe.
It's not sweet which normal brownies are. I love it!
My brother is vegan and will love this!
I didn't hv a mini cupcake (cc) pan and used a normal cc pan. Could I use a baking sheet and would it spread too much?
Thank you so much for these recipes. I am dairy free and love your recipes. Love your work. Keep it up!

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 1:35 a.m.

Hi Marsha, we're so grateful to hear that you've been enjoying the PUL content! The mini muffin tin helps provide the shape of two-bite brownies. You may find these ones come out thinner than desired if opting for a regular pan, although forming little patties by hand and spreading out the batter should help ☺️

Susy - Sept. 1, 2021, 11:39 p.m.

Yummmmy! These were so good. I love that they taste sweet and have a nice texture to them. I put some raspberries on them that really cut through the sweetness with some acidity ( Padama Lakshmi here 😉) but honestly, super simple to make.

Quick question though. What is the purpose of letting the flaxseeds rest in the water before mixing all ingredients together.


PUL Team - Sept. 2, 2021, 3:54 a.m.

Hi Susy! We're so happy the cookies were enjoyed. Letting the flaxseeds rest in water gives them time to absorb the water. This allows the mixture to thicken and gel, which is sometimes called a "flax egg", and helps with binding the brownies together. We hope this helps for now 🙂

Sonia - July 23, 2021, 2:51 p.m.

I made these for my mother, for mothers day. Was a big success :D! Very delicious. I personally would like a bit more coffee granules, because the taste kind of disappeared after baking. Not that it mattered, like I said, delicious

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 8:13 p.m.

We're so honoured a PUL recipe was part of the special occasion, Sonia! The coffee granules help enhance the chocolate flavours although perhaps adding some more may help add a touch of coffee flavour to the brownies 😃

Jenny - July 15, 2021, 1:59 p.m.

I made the muffins for my son today. I used almond flour instead of grinding the Hazelnuts. I also leave out the chocolate chips. My 3 yo son couldn't get enough from them. They are very delicious, but little too sweet for me. I would take less dates next time. Thank you very much for all the recipes.!

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 1:53 a.m.

So glad to hear your little one enjoyed it, Jenny! Thank YOU for the support 🙂

Cris - July 3, 2021, 10:11 p.m.

Hi! I really like your healthy recipes and your harmony. Just a suggestion about this recipe - the measure for the dates, if you take 3/4 of a cup of dates (for me, 3), is not the same as 142gr of dates (which were 6 dates). After baking it, the flavour was very strong. Maybe more hazelnuts?

PUL Team - July 7, 2021, 6:47 a.m.

Hi Cris! Thank you for the review and comment! The measurements provided are based on the USDA Nutrient Database, but we've gone ahead and triple-checked with the Medjool dates. We measured ~25 grams per date and six medium Medjool dates fit into a 3/4 cup. This aligned with the USDA estimation of 142 grams for a 3/4 cup. Perhaps the Medjool dates you have access to are fairly large? We're glad you enjoyed the recipe regardless ✨🙂

Cris - July 7, 2021, 11:52 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to check!

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 6:06 p.m.

Very creative and very delicious! They remind me of dried-fruit bars!

Nadeera - May 27, 2021, 4:17 a.m.

Hi Sadia. Your site and videos on you tube are great. I enjoyed watching them. I am trying to make some of them.
Have a question here, so you don't use flour for this recipe? batter is formed from the hazelnut, dates, etc.?

Keep up the good work. Great job PUL Team!!!

PUL Team - May 28, 2021, 1:54 a.m.

Thank you for the kind words, Nadeera! That's correct 😊 The blended hazelnuts create a flour-like mix which helps form the brownies

Nadeera - May 28, 2021, 8:36 a.m.

Thank you.

Koolerpants - March 24, 2021, 8:25 p.m.

These are great!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:13 a.m.
