Hey everyone! I’ve got something a little bit different for you today. This is the first recipe to be featured on the blog, and I’m glad I started with these! These are vegan no-bake brownies! That’s right – no baking needed! These are honestly one of my favourite things to make all year round, and they’re so unbelievably addictive.
To make 15 squares you will need:
- 115g walnuts
- 235g pitted dates
- 110g almond butter
- 50g unsweetened cocoa
- 38g crushed pecans
Process the walnuts and dates in a food processor until finely ground. Add the almond butter and process until well mixed. Add the cocoa powder and pulse to mix well.
Transfer to a 20cm square baking tin lined with parchment. Use your fingers to press the mixture evenly into the tin. Once the mixture is firmly pressed into the tin, sprinkle the top evenly with the crushed pecans, pressing them into the top of the brownies.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares.
These brownies were so quick and easy to make, they taste absolutely amazing and they’re also vegan! What more could you ever want? They last for quite a while in the fridge as well so you don’t have to worry about them going off if you don’t eat them all in one go – which can be tempting!
Let me know if you make these and what you think of them!
Until next time.
Please note: This is not my own recipe. I found it in a magazine but I can’t remember for the life of me what it was!
