No Bake Vegan Brownies

Ingredients for Brownies

  • 4 Cups of walnuts
  • 2 cups of pitted medjool dates
  • ½ Cup of Cacao powder
  • Sprinkling of sea salt

Ingredients for Chocolate topping

  • ¼ cup of coconut oil
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • ¼ cup Cacao powder
  1. Add half the walnuts, half the dates and half the cocoa powder to the food processor and process. The mix will first become crumbly and will stick to the sides, but then gradually will become sticky and start to clump together into a kind of dough. Repeat the process for the other half of the mix.
  2. Press the brownie mix into a baking dish or something similar.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and then add the maple syrup and cocoa powder and stir or whisk together until smooth. Pour it over the brownie base and smooth down evenly.
  4. Place the dish into the fridge until completely set before slicing.
  5. Dust with icing sugar (optional)
  6. Keep them stored in the fridge where they will stay good for at least a week. They are also freezer friendly.
