    8 dates, pitted, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes

    1/3 cup canned coconut milk

    2 tablespoons tahini

    2 teaspoons Single Origin by Simply Organic Guatemalan Turmeric

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract

    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

    Pinch of Single Origin by Simply Organic Sri Lankan Black Peppercorn



    1 stick unsalted butter

    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

    3/4 cup granulated sugar

    2 eggs, room temperature

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract

    1/2 cup almond flour

    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

    1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


    To Make the Date ‘Caramel’:

    1. Into a food processor, add all Turmeric Tahini Date Caramel ingredients and process for 1 to 2 minutes.
    2. Once dates have begun to break down into small pieces, stream in ⅓ cup warm water and process until very smooth. Set aside.

    To Make the Brownies:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
    2. In a large heat-safe bowl, add butter and chocolate chips, and place over a simmering pan of water, making sure water is not touching bottom of bowl. Stir until smooth and completely melted. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
    3. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla; whisk until smooth.
    4. Add almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; whisk until well combined.
    5. Scrape batter into prepared baking pan. Dollop about ½ cup date caramel in teaspoon-sized spoonfuls all over surface of batter. Using a skewer or butter knife, swirl batter with date caramel using an up and down motion until desired look is achieved. Reserve excess date caramel for another use.
    6. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until the top is set and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool slightly, cut into 9 squares and serve.
