Brownie Scoops

Secret Ingredient: Prunes

It’s cookie day.  I am always looking for new ideas and I found a recipe for Brownie Bites on The Vegan Chef.  They are oil free which is great and I love the secret ingredient!  I adapted them just slightly for my taste and here they are!

makes about 3 dozen cookies using a 1 tablespoon ice cream scooper

4 pitted prunes
3 tbsp hot water
3/4 cup vegan cane sugar
1/4 cup almond milk
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, cover prunes with hot water.  Transfer to processor with sugar and almond milk.  Process until combined.

Sift flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and add baking soda, vanilla powder, and salt.  Add the prune puree along with the chips and walnuts.  Combine well.

Pack a tablespoon ice cream scooper with the dough and place on the baking sheets.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Let cool.  Enjoy!
