Triple Chocolate No-Bake Brownies
Serves: 20 small servings
Prep time:
Total time:

  • for the brownies:
  • 4 cups whole walnuts
  • ¾ cup raw cacao
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 12 oz fresh medjool dates, pitted
  • for the chocolate ganache:
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt

  1. Process walnuts in your food processor, until finely ground.
  2. Add raw cacao(or cocoa powder), and sea salt. Process until incorporated.
  3. Add the stevia, and then the dates one at a time through the top feed, while the food processor is running. Once all of the dates are used, the mixture should look crumbly, but stick and hold together. Press mixture into a 9×9 baking dish, cover and place in the fridge while you make the ganache.
  4. add the cocoa powder, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, sea salt and vanilla extract to the food processor (no need to clean in-between), and process until emulsified. Spread ganache evenly over the top of the brownies. Place in the fridge or freezer to set for 1 hour before cutting.

20 Thoughts on “Triple Chocolate No-Bake Brownies

  1. I think I might be missing something, aren’t there any cocoa in the ganache at all?

  2. HOLY cow. Deliciousness city!

  3. Mmm…this look so delish! I’ll have to try your recipe soon.

  4. These look delicious! I love the ingredient list, and your pictures are so beautiful. :-)

  5. Is there a sweetener I can use instead of Stevia? Liquid Stevia is so expensive. Looks so good! Naomi

      You actually don’t have to use any added sweetener to the brownies…they will be sweet enough as is with the dates!

    Can use another kind of nut instead of walnuts? Looks super yummy!

    • jodyrodent on May 13, 2013 at 4:31 pm said:

      Yes, it will still be wonderful, but it won’t turn out as buttery with almonds or any other nut with less fat, I think your best bet would be pecans or macadamias?

        Hi there, came across this recipe the other day & decided to make it today.

        Well I am not sure what went wrong but it was not nice at all. I did everything as set out in method but the taste was horrible, very bitter.
        Is that the way they should taste, bitter?

        I had another look and in between the pics there is this written …

        Made with walnuts, dates, stevia, raw cacao and maple syrup.

        Now not sure if the maple syrup you have written in this section is supposed to be added to brownies as there is no mention of it in the brownie ingredients only the ganache?

        I was so looking forward to trying these & I ended up throwing it all in the bin, waste of money & time unfortunately. I didn’t make the ganache as there was no point.

        Hey Annette,
        Sad they didnt turn out! These should not be bitter at all! The only thing I can think of that would make this taste bitter is if you added too much stevia. Also some brands of the stevia can be more bitter than others. I have also learned this the hard way. I use better stevia drops.

        To clarify, maple syrup is only used in the ganache. You can actually omit the stevia all together in this recipe as the dates will be sweet enough. This is how I typically make them at home.

        Better luck next time, and if you have any more questions, let me know!

    Thanks for your reply Jody, will try another time with out the stevia.

    I would love to make these but have a question. I dont have whole walnuts, I have walnut meal. Should I use 4 cups of it, or less? Thank you!

    • jodyrodent on September 16, 2013 at 5:20 am said:

      I would use more, but since the meal might absorb more moisture, I would experiment with it using more or less dates, and possibly a few drops of water to achieve the texture of cake crumbs after it comes out of the food processor, and is ready to be pressed into the pan. Good luck!

  10. 4 cups of walnuts must cost a fortune

  11. Do you have the nutrition information on this …how many calories, fat grams etc per serving?

    Can I use honey in place of the stevia? If yes, how much would I use?

    • jodyrodent on January 20, 2014 at 7:29 am said:

      Yes, you can maybe 2 TBS. But it isn’t nessasary since the dates sweeten the brownies enough as is! good luck!
