I found them to be far tastier once they’d been in the fridge overnight. mmmm, sorry? I love your No Bake Vegan Brownies recipe. I’ve even added brewers yeast to them when I was breastfeeding, to help with my milk supply. I am so happy I discovered your site- I have still so much to learn about food photography and I might consider buying your guide :) awesome work! Spread evenly over the brownies. Super rich and delicious. A 5-ingredient coconut oil chocolate ganache is optional but recommended … Wow! Hope that helps! Everyone loves them and they look exactly like the photo!! Me too! i dont like dates is there anything eles i could use? XO Kelly, I’d love this post even if it wasn’t actually about brownies, and that says something! Start small and sweeten to taste. We dated four months before getting engaged. The combination of the two textures (guilt-free, granular bottom layer and the smooth, decadent top layer) was great. This was the first recipe I tried from your site and, though I’ve discovered more gems since, it’s still my absolute favourite recipe of yours! We moved to Portland a couple years ago and I agree, it’s the best :). Thanks for sharing this recipe with everyone. Please tell me you argue once in a while or I will be forced to hate you. Thank you, Dana! Turns out you can just chop the dates then knead all the ingredients together. Any substitution suggestions for cacao nibs? It seems that you can do some food processing in a blender, and a blender is easier to clean. First—happy anniversary. Best brownie recipe I’ve had, vegan and raw, thanks to my sis. I didn’t use cocoa nibs because I didn’t have them on hand. Very fudgy, especially with the icing. Any suggestions to substitute out the powdered sugar? Congrats on five years of marriage, you too. Best no-bake brownie ever! Top with some cacao nibs, hemp seeds, and coconut if desired. THANKS !!! I added 2 cups of powdered sugar and almost 1/2 cup of arrowroot powder, let it sit in the fRidge, but it was still runny! I can hardly sit down long enough to write a grocery list. Made These Today for a Family Gathering! A few years back I met one of my now closest friends who is vegan. Use this as a guide. Thank you for your great site. Even my “non healthy eating” family lives them! Sorry for the long-winded directions, but I think I understand your problem and with this method mine turned out great! Not sure! ;-). I made these for book club last week and everyone loved them! Added a little water to squeeze the base together before freezing because my dates weren’t as soft as I thought, total awesomeness. FOR THE GANACHE: Add almond milk to a mixing bowl and microwave for 45 seconds or until very warm. So rich and chocolatey!! Is there another recipe? Easy and delicious! If you’d like to try and calculate that, I usually rely on caloriecount.com’s recipe analysis function. I added fresh raspberries to mine, and it was a perfect dessert without all the refined sugar. Full of living enzymes and better than cooked brownies, these are a frequent treat for us! I followed the directions.. Amazing! These delicious, vegan, and gluten-free chocolate brownies … I had to use what I had in the pantry, so I couldn’t follow the recipe exactly. Thank you both for your help…looking forward to doing some better tasting non-dairy baking! Secondly these look and sound fantastic. Thanks :). Change up the sweet (raisins, dates, prunes, dried cherries) according to what your taste buds say, and experiment with the fat too (almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pine nuts). I think so! I soon realised there are *so* many recipes, but this one stood out for me, owing to the simplicity of the ingredients, absence of sugar in the ‘dough’ (I didn’t bother with the icing), and the pictures, of course. I even, as you suggested, added extra icing sugar ( and plenty of it). ;) Your no-bake brownies are THE BOMB! Will make again… Thanks for the recipie, Oh my, these sound BEYOND! Made them on Monday without the cacuanibs and extra walnuts on top and instead opted for strawberries… They were phenomenal!!! ThAnk yoU! Let us know if you give it a try! I made these brownies and they are really good, except I had a problem with the ganache. Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Thanks so much! but it was totally worth it! I really enjoyed reading them :), These are the best brownies ive ever tasted in all 4 years of me being vegan!! Here goes. This will take 1-5 minutes depending on how strong your food processor is! I must have made them 50 times over a few month period. Add a pinch of salt and some vanilla! Hi Poppy, We haven’t experienced that. My mum and her colleagues loved these so much. I used one 5 ounce package of dates (re-hydrated in warm water) and I used all of the walnuts (1 cup) in the mixture. THE BROWNIES LOOK INCREDIBLY GREAT! I have an allergy, but wonder if it will come out the same. Wow! I found the icing to be too sweet and overpowering, but hubby who has a (very) sweet tooth loved them. And it’s now my go-to recipe for when I need something quick to treat friends! If they aren’t all snaffled before – my man differs from yours and has a VERY sweet tooth! And I must thank you for this recipe because, you’re not going to believe this, but my son cannot stand the smell of brownies baking either. I’m allergic to walnuts. So glad these turned out well for you with your modifications. A pound of medjool dates where I live is 9€, the nuts are another 3€, the vegan chocolate 3€. but commenting to say that this time I was using up some date sugar (the proper stuff in cylinders someone brought back from Malaysia), but was having to guess about how to use it as I couldn’t find recipes for it or even how to use it when substituting. I have fig trees (I LOVE figs), do you think I could mix with or substitute for the dates in your raw brownie recipe? I think almonds would work fine in this recipe, as would pecans. It should be fine, but if you want, you would use slightly more oats and slightly less chocolate to compensate sweetness :D, Hi Dana ? Since mine didn’t end up being moist enough to clump (maybe my dates were a little dry), I melted a bit of coconut manna (a few tbsp) along with another tbsp or so of coconut oil, and they turned out just delicious. Great recipe Dana! Everyone loves them – not just vegans! Holy crap you’re my favorite blog like ever and all this time I had no idea you live in the same city as me! Absolutely delicious. I also used 1/3 cup cocoa powder. It always gets raves & requests for the recipe. this link is to an external site that may or may not meet accessibility guidelines. Thank you :) Hmm, maybe! Thank you so much this will no doubt be a long time favourite and I love that I can even put these in lunch boxes!! I’ve asked myself the same question and I would go with a blender…can’t live without a blender for smoothies. I loved this post. I thought about sharing these, but thought again and I’m keep them to myself ;), So kind! So glad you loved these brownies. Which makes me sad because she’s missing out on so many good things. I just made these! I remember when you first posted these raw brownies and this upgraded version is so pretty! Cannot wait to make them – THANK YOU SO MUCH! It still got sticky fast, but I figured it may have blended a little bit more. What brand is it? I don’t get all the alternative chocolate options in my area so perhaps I’ll have to either experiment or come to accept frosting in place of a ganache. If I serve with ice cream then my kids will even eat them :) I don’t particularly like the after taste of stevia in cooked foods, so I have used successfully, for many years, ERYTHRITOL as a plant based, sugar free, zero calorie sweetener. But I don’t have a food processor… would it be fine if I just pulsed in a Nutri ninja? Thanks so much for the lovely review, Nikki. Hi! Great blog! Add cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt (if using).
