Brownies are my fave… if you know me you know I love chewy brownies, fudgy when heated and crispy round the edges with chunks of chocolate oozing inside.
However, I am quite partial to a raw brownie, of course topped with ganache and none of this dry packaged date and nut bar… don’t worry these raw brownies are far from that dry consistency. That is of course not to say that all packaged ones are terrible and dry, distinctly lacking in the fudgy consistency and rich chocolate flavour departments. Saying such a thing got some people’s backs up previously, but I was just speaking my opinion. To be fair, I have made and tasted my fair share of such bars and raw treats and I just prefer to make my own, OR pick up one in a coffee shop that has been freshly made because they can be winners.
I love these little brownie bites because they require no slicing. You could also make them in small loaf tin if you prefer small bars or slices or deep chunks. I love the pop of crunch from the cacao nibs as well, and that topping… Nature’s Charm Chocolate Fudge Sauce, coconut milk based, vegan friendly, and frankly quite addictive. A game changer and it means topping your brownies, raw, no bake or baked has never been so freaking simple. Love me a speedy recipe!
No Bake Brownie BitesPrint Recipe
- 100g pitted Medjool dates
- 20g raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
- 40g oats or oat flour
- 90g roast or raw hazelnuts
- 1 tbsp Nature’s Charm Coconut Condensed Milk
- ½ tbsp cacao nibs
- ***For Topping***
- 1 -2 tsp Nature’s Charm Chocolate Fudge sauce per brownie
- Chopped raw or roast hazelnuts
- Cacao nibs
Place dates through to condensed milk to a high speed blender. Blend everything together to form a thick paste. Add cacao nibs and pulse through.
Remove from the blender and divide into 6 balls. Shape into round or square brownie bites. You could also place the mixture into a small loaf pan and slice them into bars or roll the dough out and use a cutter!
Top each one with some chocolate fudge sauce and a sprinkling of cacao nibs and hazelnuts. Place in the fridge to firm up a little before serving. Equally if they have been in the fridge for quite a while before serving remove for a few minutes to soften up so that they are nice and fudgy.
Store in the fridge for up to one week or freeze for up to one month.
Double the recipe if you are making them for more than just yourself!
