DESSERT Vegan No Bake Brownies



Yield 16 brownies

Enjoy this Vegan, No Sugar Added treat!  It's filled with protein from the walnuts and fiber from the dates, plus an extra benefit from the unsweetened cocoa powder and avocado, which provides an excellent source of healthy fats.

Assuming that the people you serve this to do not have nut allergies, this is a fantastic alternative to normal brownies, and since it is a No Bake recipe, the nutrients are also preserved!


For the No Bake Brownie Base

2 cups walnuts, raw

1 1/2-2 cups dates, pitted

2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, divided into 3/4 cups & 1 1/4 cups

1 cup hot water

1 tsp salt, divided

cooking spray, as needed

For the Ganache

1 avocado, peeled, pitted and scooped out

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 cup dates, pitted

1 tsp maple syrup *optional

1 cup walnuts, toasted *optional for garnish


For the No Bake Brownie Base


We love the avocado in this recipe especially because since it is mixed with cocoa powder, you won't be able to see that unappetizing brown color as the avocado oxidizes!
