Preheat oven to 180 degrees C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 20cm square cake tin.
Sift together the cocoa powder, flours, baking powder, xanthan and salt into the bowl of your stand mixer (or use a mixing bowl and an electric beater).
Gently heat the chocolate chips and agave syrup, until just melted. Stir in vanilla.
Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and mix gently until well combined
Mix together mashed banana and apple sauce. Fold in this mixture into the chocolate batter. Fold in chopped dates.
Spoon mixture into cake tin and spread evenly. Bake for 20 minutes and then sprinkle the extra chocolate chips over the top. Place back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes. The brownies are done when an inserted skewer comes out clean. Let cool at room temperature before serving.
Absolutely fantastic recipe! Having read the comments and had difficulty getting the vegan choc chips, I simply replaced with melted vegan chocolate in the recipe then drizzled the finished brownies with melted chocolate- fantastic! So squishy too ! Xxx - 07 Nov 2015
