No Bake Healthy Brownies

These No Bake Healthy Brownies are a super guilt-free snack that comes together with very minimal effort and will satisfy even the serious chocolate addicts. Did I mention that they are also vegan, sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. They keep for approximately 10 days in a sealed container in the fridge.


  • 100g of Coconut Sugar
  • 12 pitted medjool dates
  • 110g Regular or Gluten Free Oats
  • 60g of Almonds
  • 60g of Walnuts
  • 90g of Unsweetened Cacao Powder
  • 1/4 Vanilla Pod or 1 Tsp of Vanilla Essence
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Put the dates into a food processor and blend until smooth. If using regular dates, add a little water to reach a thick paste.Remove and set to one side.
  2. Put the oats, almonds and walnuts into the processor and blitz to form fine crumbs, then put the date paste back in, breaking it up into chunks.
  3. Add the cacao powder, then either scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod or add the vanilla essence. Add a little water to create a dough that stays together when pressed with fingertips.
  4. Place the dough in a non-stick (ideally silicone) 20cm square baking tray. Press the dough down with your hands and spread it evenly across the tin. Place in the fridge for a few hours, then slice into 9 large brownies.
  5. Store in an airtight container for up to 10 days or freeze for up to a month.
