Best Ever Raw Vegan Brownies

Raw vegan brownies were the first vegan pudding i ever made. That day i realised that just because i am vegan doesn't mean i cant eat amazing food. If i fancy chocy goodies, i can have chocy goodies! Just without the yucky animal products, additives and refined sugars. HEALTHY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES. Isn't that everybody's dream? And they don't just merely satisfy my sweet tooth. They are better than any brownie i have ever had. I seriously adore plant based living, to the point it makes me all happy and excited inside.

BEST EVER Raw Vegan Brownies

1 Cup Walnuts
1 cup cashew nuts
1 cup of dates ( soaked in water)
1/4 cup chia seeds ( optional )
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
4 tbsp Coconut Oil
Pinch Salt

Chocolate Topping
2 tbsp Agave Syrup
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
3 tbsp Coconut oil
1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
pinch salt

Blend Walnuts and Cashews until it imitates a flour like consistency. Drain the water from the dates. Add the dates, chia seeds, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, salt, and melted coconut oil to the blender. 

To melt coconut oil, Fill a large bowl or pan with warm water. Place the coconut oil in a smaller bowl, and place this bowl in the water bowl for a few minutes until  the coconut oil has melted.

Blend for a good few mins until well mixed. Place the mixture evenly into a tin or pan and place in the freezer whilst you make the topping. 

In a blender mix coconut powder, melted coconut oil, Agave syrup, salt and cinnamon. This should form a medium thickness sauce. Take the brownie mixture out of the freezer and spread the sauce evenly over. Freeze for a further 45mins and they will be ready to eat :) 

If you plan to consume all your brownies within a few days, they will be absolutely fine to store in the fridge. If you want to store them for a longer period of time, keep the brownies in the freezer. I am not sure how long they will keep in the freezer, as mine have never stuck around longer than a week! But i am pretty sure they will keep for a while. 

Enjoy. These are SOOO yummy. 


  1. These look so good. I am going to make some this weekend! Could i substitute something fornthe agave syrup?

    1. Hi Lucy, :) Yay let me know how they go! Yes, you could add extra dates, or use a powdered fruit sugar or maple syrup.
