These are the BEST no bake vegan brownies! Enjoy a fudgy, chewy square topped with rich chocolate frosting. You’ll love them! 




  • 1.5 cups raw walnuts
  • 1.5 cups raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups medjool dates, packed (~25 dates)

Chocolate Frosting:

  • 1/3 cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Brownies: Add walnuts, almonds, cacao powder, and salt to a food processor. Process until the nuts crumble. Add pitted medjool dates. Process until a sticky dough forms. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. Use clean hands to firmly press the brownie dough across the base of the dish. Set aside while you create the chocolate frosting. 
  2. Chocolate Frosting: Combine cacao powder, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Whisk until smooth. 
  3. Assemble: Spread the chocolate frosting in an even layer across the no bake brownies. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to set. After, slice into 16 squares and enjoy! 


  • For the chocolate frosting, make sure you use melted coconut oil. If your coconut oil is solid, add a few spoonfuls to a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Measure 1/4 cup then combine with the other frosting ingredients. 
  • For the brownies, it is best to use fresh/soft medjool dates. If your dates are very dry/hard, soak in warm water for 5-10 minutes. After, drain the water and completely dry the dates with a paper towel. Proceed with the recipe. 
  • Store these no bake brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep for up to 1 week.
