Dessert, Vegan

Date Brownies

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with delicious food and laughter! My husband and I had a great time with our family. We had traditional Thanksgiving food with a Middle Eastern twist. Also, I heard exciting news! Two of my recipes have been published! Check them out on my Facebook page Fufuinthekitchen! 🙂

These no bake vegan brownies are just as decadent as the fudge chocolate brownies that we usually eat. I actually enjoyed them more! Lately, I have been experimenting with dates. I have always enjoyed eating them; they not only have a great texture and rich flavor without being overly sweet. Believe it or not; I was never a chocolate fan growing up but time has changed! Also, for those who don’t know, chocolate is plant based but a good amount of the chocolate we eat has additives that can make the chocolate not vegan. So, always check the ingredients! This treat turned out better than I anticipated; I honestly couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you all so you can enjoy it as much as my family did! You may never bake brownies again!

Servings: 9 bars

Total Time: approx. 30 min

Brownie Ingredients

13 ounces of date paste

1/2 a cup of finely chopped walnuts

1/2 a cup of finely chopped pecans

1/2 a cup of cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

Pinch of cinnamon

Icing Ingredients

1/4 cup almond milk

1/2 cup of dairy free chocolate pieces (semi-sweet preferably)

1/4 cup of melted coconut oil

2 tbsp powdered sugar

2 tbsp corn starch

Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • In a medium size bowl, add all the brownie ingredients and mix thoroughly with hands.
  • Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and place the brownie mix into the pan; spread it out.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and using a cup flatten the surface of the mix so it is all even. The plastic wrap will prevent the mix sticking to the cup.
  • Place in the fridge while making the icing.
  • To make the icing, add the almond milk to a small pot and bring to boil. Lower the heat and then add the chocolate. Stir in the chocolate till completely melted. Take the pot off the heat.
  • Add the coconut oil, corn starch, and powdered sugar to the pot. Mix with a wooden spoon then place in the fridge to thicken for about 10 min.
  • Take the brownies out; frost them with the icing and cut into 9 pieces. Garnish with chocolate chips and/or nuts!

Enjoy 🙂
