05 Feb / Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Sugar RAW Brownies

I found this recipe on LearnRawFood.com, made a few adjustments and fell in LOVE with it! Had to share. It’s a great way to get your chocolate fix – totally naturally. No cooking required, so it’s a pretty immediate indulgence – in a healthy way. Gotta love it!

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Sugar RAW Brownies

1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
1 t Himalayan pink sea salt
8 pitted dates
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t vanilla extract
2 t water
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Place the walnuts in a food processor fitted with the S-blade and process until coarsely chopped. Remove 1/4 cup of the walnuts and set aside. Add the salt to the remaining walnuts and process until finely ground. Add the dates and process until the mixture begins to stick together. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla and process until evenly distributed. Add the water, dried cranberries, and reserved walnuts, and process briefly, just to mix.

Pack the mixture firmly into a square container. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. I love to eat them after they’ve been in the fridge for an hour. Try the freezer too.

    Thanks! I am excited to try these. Another easy option I’ve used before is Trader Joe’s wheat free/gluten free brownies- very quick.

    Yes, I LOVE the Trader Joe’s and those brownies are good. I was just stoked to find this recipe because it is so delish and no flour.

    Keep the comments coming!

    Hi Heather, do you know how much sugar this contains? A new diagnosis has me eliminating all sugar (and dairy and gluten and corn and soy and…). So if I omit cranberries, wondering if this would be ok for me? Excited to have found your blog!

    Hi Jules,

    Thanks for the comment!
    If you get unsweetened cranberries and unsweetened cocoa powder you should be good to go with no sugar. There is natural sugar in dates and that’s really what sweetens the brownies.

    Hope this helps – happy eating!
    Heather 🙂
