🥣 How To Make No Bake Brownies

Brownie base

Perhaps the easiest step for these brownies is preparing the brownie base. Simply add the dry ingredients to your food processor (in this case walnuts, cacao powder, and salt) and blend them until they form a light crumb consistency. Next, you'll add in the wet ingredients (dates and vanilla extract) and blend until the mixture starts to stick together to form a dough consistency. Then you'll press the mixture into the base of a lined pan until smooth and even.

Mocha mousse

To a saucepan add the coconut milk, coffee, and vanilla and bring to a simmer until all of the coffee granules have dissolved. Next, remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the minutes over the chocolate, allowing it to sit for a few minutes to melt. Add in your maple syrup, stir well, and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature (this is important!).

To a clean large bowl add the aquafaba and cream of tartar. Use an electric whisk/stand mixer to beat for about 8 minutes until stiff. Use a spatula to carefully fold the whipped aquafaba into the cooled chocolate mixture, one large spoonful at a time. Once all of the ingredients have been incorporated, transfer the mousse to the baking tin and freeze for 1 hour or until the surface is solid.

Raspberry coulis

For the coulis add the frozen raspberries, maple syrup, and lemon juice to a saucepan and simmer for 25-30 minutes stirring occasionally, until the mixture has been reduced by about half. Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove the seeds and allow them to cool to room temperature. Once cooled spread the coulis on top of the mousse and return to the freezer to set completely overnight (or a minimum of 4 hours).

Chocolate coating

Cut the brownies into 16 portions using a sharp knife. (heat the knife in boiling water to make it easier to cut the frozen bars). Place the brownies back in the freezer and one by one take them out and dunk them in the melted chocolate using 2 forks. Set the coated brownies on a sheet of parchment paper. Garnish with a drizzle of chocolate, freeze-dried raspberries, and flaky sea salt.

Allow defrosting for 15-20 minutes before eating and store in the fridge in an airtight container or freeze extra portions for later!

    This was fantastic!! Tasted heavenly! Only issue was leaving them out of the freezer for too long -- they started to melt! I made them over a few days.

    Making this for the second time in a week, I love this recipe! Quick, easy to follow and made from everyday ingredients you can find in supermarkets.

    1. Hi Jody,

      That's amazing! I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying the recipe, thank you for the feedback 🙂

    1. Thanks for your feedback Rebby

      Oh sometimes if your dates aren't soft/sticky enough the base won't hold properly. If you come across this again you could add a little maple syrup or nut butter to the base before setting. I'm glad you enjoyed the flavours 🙂
