When the chocolate cravings strike, sometimes we need to act fast.

And sometimes, we don’t feel like spending 30 + minutes in the kitchen baking, messing with flour and remembering when to take “said treat” out of the oven on time (what smells like burning!?).

Then of course, there’s the issue of trying to eat healthier while satisfying that sweet tooth of yours.

In my humble opinion, eating healthy does not equal perfection, nor does it mean that we can throw all conscious effort to the wind and say “eff-it” every Friday night. Eating healthy and transitioning to wise plant-based food choices is all about finding delicious alternatives you can enjoy while playing it smart.

Which brings me to the ultimate fix for any chocolate addict…these amazing vegan brownies!!! ♥

Forget the flour.

Forget baking and WAITING and cooling times.

Forget any and all animal products, like dairy and eggs (you don’t need them!).

And forget feeling guilty because you indulged in something you love. There’s no need to feel bad about brownies like these!

And why even feel guilty with good-for-you ingredients?

Walnuts, pecans, and raw chocolate all help bind this baby together, giving you that “fudge-y” texture and flavor, but without the fuss of flour. Cacao, which was also considered the drink of the Gods by the Incas, is one of the highest forms of magnesium, plus contains FOUR TIMES the antioxidants of regular dark chocolate.

All you need is 15 minutes (from start to finish!).

So what are you waiting for!? 🙂

No-Bake Flourless Vegan Brownies (Gluten-Free!)

Makes approximately 25 bite sized squares.

Ingredients:

Base-

  • 1 C Walnuts
  • 1 C pecans
  • 1 C packed *pitted* dates (approx. 20 dates)
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 C raw cacao powder (or cocoa, but you will lose the health benefits!)

Icing-

Directions:

  1. Add all brownie base ingredients to a food processor, and run until mixture pulls away from the sides (a “dough” will start to form).
  2. Empty contents into an 8 x 8 baking dish lined with parchment paper. Press/pull brownie mixture to the edges of the pan- this can be done easily by placing a sheet of parchment paper on top of the mixture, and then pressing on top with your hands (this prevents you from getting your hands covered in chocolate too!).
  3. For the topping, mix all ingredients in your food processor (no need to rinse- just makes sure there aren’t pieces leftover from the brownie base) until smooth and thick. *TIP: If icing seems too runny, add a touch more powdered sugar- if it seems too dry, add a splash of almond milk.
  4. Pour on top of brownies and spread evenly across the pan.
  5. Eat immediately OR refrigerate 15 minutes to harden up. Cut into bite-sized squares. Enjoy!

*If making gluten-free, please make sure to check that your powdered sugar is gluten-free verified.

These look fantastic. I use to bake replacing butter with dates all the time and it works very well. I am sure these are moist and chewy and delish. I really like the thought that you can have these without baking.
