I love no-bake recipes – why? Because sometimes life is too short to have to wait for brownies to cool down!! Like nearly all of my recipes these are super easy to make and you can even change the nuts to suit your mood and taste. I will just say that almonds and cashews will make the texture more dense and chewy, and nuts like pecans and walnuts will give a nice crumbly texture (they are also lower in carbs).
If you wish you purchase the rice protein from Nua Naturals, don’t forget to use the code: “Piggy15” at the checkout to avail of a 15% discount.
Nua Naturals are my favourite raw food brand as they really do make healthy eating easy with their huge selection of ingredients; everything from cacao powder and nibs, maca powder, chorella, bee pollen and more.
Now onto my recipe!
- 140g nuts of your choice (I used walnuts and pecans)
- 200g medjool dates (soak them if they are the dried kind)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 3 Tbsp Nua Naturals rice protein
- 3 Tbsp raw cacao
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of pink Himalayan salt
- 1/2 bar 85% dark choc
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 3 Tbsp Wyldsson (I used the new low-carb mix)
- 3 Tbsp goji berries
**You can add some natural sweetener in to the base/topping if you wish – I didn’t use one this time as the recipe uses a lot of dates and was already sweet enough for me.
- In your food processor add all of the dry ingredients, pulsing a few time to mix.
- Add in the wet ingredients and run the food processor for about 4 minutes, and do a pinch test – pinch the mixture and if it sticks together it’s ready.
- Line a square dish with parchment paper and transfer the mixture in. Using your hand or a spatula, press the mix down until the surface is flat and even. Place in the fridge for an hour
- While the base is setting, make the topping by melting the chocolate and coconut oil in a bowl over hot water. When it’s ready, pour over the base, sprinkle with the toppings and store in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
- Cut into squares and enjoy.
