How to Make No-Bake Brownies with dates and walnuts?

  1. Process walnuts

    First, put 1 cup of walnuts in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times until finely ground. Finely chop up the rest of 1/2 cup. You’ll love that satisfying crunch chopped walnuts will add to our fudgy brownies.

  2. Blend dates

    Next, blend the dates until smooth and creamy. Add 1-2 tsp water, if needed. That will depend on the dryness of your dates.

    Then, in a medium-sized bowl, combine walnuts, dates, cacao powder, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix everything together until well incorporated.

  4. Refrigerate

    After that, line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Transfer the dough to the pan and press with your hands until the mixture is evenly distributed in it. Add more walnuts at the top if you like or make a simple chocolate ganache. This step is optional but highly recommended.
    As for the ganache, just melt coconut oil and stir in agave syrup, cacao powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until you get a sticky chocolate paste. Spread it evenly on the brownie dough. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours, to set.

  5. Serve and enjoy

    Finally, cut your brownies into squares and serve topped with more finely chopped walnuts. I topped mine with candied pomelo peel. It adds such a delicate citrusy flavor that wonderfully blends with our chocolate brownies.
    Store any leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated for up to a week. Also, you can freeze these sugarless brownies in a freezer-friendly container for up to 2 months.

Should brownies be kept in the fridge?

Yes, it’s best to keep your melty homemade brownies refrigerated. Their complex chocolatey-nutty flavor is more prominent while chilled.

Do brownies taste better the next day?

Absolutely, brownies taste better the next day. The date moisture and sweetness become evenly distributed and mingled with peanut butter and cacao powder. The flavors blend beautifully together and the chocolate taste is more pronounced. You should try it yourself!

Notes

  • If your dates aren’t soft enough to be blended easily, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes, drain, then blend or mash them with a fork.
  • You can substitute the walnuts with any nuts you prefer like: hazelnuts or almonds.
  • Keep your brownies refrigerated to retain their shape and texture. They are best enjoyed straight out of the fridge.
