These easy homemade Fudgy No-Bake Brownies are a healthy tasty treat. Made from scratch, you won't want a box mix after having these!
Being a food blogger, it's funny how some recipes can get you really excited, while others you put off until the last minute. I was really excited to make these Fudgy No-Bake Brownies.
Not only do I love chocolate, but I love brownies. Being the no-bake variety, these are really easy to make.
It's mid-September as I write this and I have been busy creating holiday recipes, mainly in the form of desserts. Even though I have been creating holiday recipes this early, I am really excited.
I am not a big dessert person, but these vegan brownies are probably my favorite dessert to date.
It's hard for me to get used to being like Costco and other retail stores that bring out their holiday and seasonal wares way before said holiday or season.
As long as I create recipes that I can be excited about, I'll be alright with it.
I made these Fudgy No-Bake Brownies many years ago with slightly different ingredients, so I knew I would like them. I was eating a raw vegan diet at the time.
If I wasn't a food blogger, I would probably make this easy homemade brownie recipe often. They are sweet, rich, and addictive.
Since I am a food blogger, I don't make the same recipes over and over again very often. I just don't have enough room in my belly!

Tips for Making No-Bake Brownies
- Mix the cacao powder, almond flour, and 1/2 cup of the walnuts in a food processor until it resembles a course flour. The rest of the walnuts are added later to add some crunch.
- If your dates have hardened, soak them in hot water before adding them to the mixture.
- Mix the brownie ingredients until they form a ball. That ensures the mixture will be a moist ooey-gooey consistency. Then add the second portion of walnuts so that there are some crunchy bits.
- Line your baking sheet with plastic wrap to get the brownies out easier.
- Store brownies in the refrigerator. The frosting has coconut oil, so it melts at room temperature.
- Change up the recipe to include your favorite nuts. Add coconut flakes for flavor and texture.

I love these Pyrex baking dishes! I used a 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" baking dish for this recipe. It's great because it comes with a cover, so I can put it in the fridge.
