When you use peanut butter made with just peanuts and salt, you get a luxurious, creamy texture and it literally pours out of the jar. Thank you! I added peanuts because that’s what I had on hand. I just wanted to say that I appreciate all you do and have done and am totally onboard with this modified approach. I made this for a friend (who is vegan) and her husband (who is GF). I also added a tablespoon or so extra water to help things along as I was blending in the PB as mine was not very runny. So much gold.

I have read all the comments and have concluded that the ingredients in the recipe are a good starting point, as substitutions based on one’s preferences work well too. Thanks so much! Like every recipe of yours that I have tried, this is AMAZING. I made these the first day you posted this recipe. I’ve been using 2 cups heaped medjool dates before pitting. So instead, I used a mashed browning plantain for the dates, and tigernut “butter” (advocados oil and tigernut flour, which actually taste like a nut butter). I didn’t have enough dates so I filled in the gaps of my 2cup measuring cup with salted mixed nuts.

Definitely a win… Also they’re a little less sweet without the rest of the dates than you would expect from a brownie but I don’t mind that at all.
