These vegan nutella brownies come together in just a few easy steps with minimal ingredients. They taste just like nutella, and are great if you're looking for a treat that's on the healthier side. They're also gluten-free and no-bake so no need to turn on the oven.
Add the gluten-free oats and salt to your food processor and blitz for a minute until finely ground. Add the dates and hazelnut butter and blend again for a minute or two until the ingredients have broken down.
Add the cacao powder and non-dairy milk and blend until the mixture forms a dough. (If the dough is already sticky before this step add less plant milk)
Press the mixture into the base of an 8x8” pan lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to flatten it out. Set aside.
Melt the chocolate and hazelnut butter together over a double boiler. Spread the chocolate over the brownies and top with chopped hazelnuts. Chill for 1 hour, slice, and serve.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container. They're best when consumed within 5 days. You can also freeze them in an airtight container and defrost before serving.
