Vegan No Bake Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Vegan No Bake Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Hey guys!

How are you this first Tuesday of Spring? 

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! I actually first made it about a month ago. Ever since Amanda mentioned that getting extra omega-3’s in her diet helped her eczema, I’ve been looking to add omega-3 foods to our diet whenever possible. Salmon, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and in this case, walnuts all make regular appearances in our diet, but lately I’ve been looking to sneak extra servings of them daily.

So, really these brownies were born out of necessity. I mean, how else are we supposed to get in all of those extra omega-3’s into our diet? Okay, so there are many other ways, but this way IS the most fun.

Okay, so I know that there are about a million no bake, vegan brownie recipes out there.

But, this one is different, Why, you ask? Because of the chunks! Date chunks to be exact. This brilliant idea was actually an accident! You see, I don’t have a food processor. Most of the time I don’t even miss it, but a blender (even my beloved Ninja!) just cannot give the same uniform texture that a food processor does.

In this case, though, it actually worked in my favor!

What’s the big deal with the chunks you say?

Well, these date chunks lead to a rich and caramel-y taste, but without all of the added sugar and butter of real caramel. 

That’s a win in my opinion!

A rich and fudgey no bake brownie with swirls of caramel-y sweet chunks of dates. It's love at first bite.
