Hi Bold Bakers!

This year instead of trying to cut down on sweets I’m satisfying my cravings in a whole new way, by creating healthy and nutritious home made sweets like these Healthy Brownies!

After the holiday season I think we all feel the need to lighten up. While this is great in theory I find that no matter what time of year my sweet tooth seems to take the reins. Short on time but in need of a sweet treat and trying to stay healthy? Then these Healthy Brownies are for you.

If you ask me a brownie is the ultimate dessert, it’s a single serving of chocolate heaven. This satisfying and super simple recipe ticks all the boxes. These No Bake Healthy Brownies are actually good good for you made of wholesome ingredients, free from refined sugars, flour, gluten and egg. They’re even good for breakfast, afternoon snacks and everything in between! I don’t know what is better about this recipe, the rich fudgy texture or the fact that they can be made in a food processor in under 10 minutes flat!

To make the base of these brownies you simply combine soft sweet dates, fiber rich flax, almond flour and cocoa powder. After a quick whiz together these healthy ingredients form the base of my no bake, vegan, Healthy Brownies. This mixture gets pressed into a loaf tin the popped in the fridge while I whip up the chocolate glaze.

I made these as a mother’s day treat. My mother in-law loves chocolate but right now she is keeping away from white flours, sugar, basically anything unhealthy. These were a real hit and hits the sweet spot. Also very easy to make.

Hi, recipe looks amazing … I found it whilst hunting for a luxury but healthyish recipe for vegan Baileys brownies… Any advice about what stage to add the alcohol. ( not actually the Baileys brand, but Besos d’oro brand) . In the glaze or main brownie part? Also, do you think they’d still taste good after freezing? Thanks very much, appreciate your expert opinion!

What I love about your recipes is that on most of them you put the Nutrional Info and as a Type 1 diabetic I can see straight away what the carbohydrate content is and wether it’s a good one for me to make. And most of yours are very good to make and eat. Thank you for that.

Hi Gemma,

Can you substitute the almond flour for oat flour?
And can I substitute the coconut oil for butter or another type of oil?

These taste fantastic, however, the dough never got sticky and I weighed the Medjool dates and soaked in hot water so they were soft. The dough was a loose crumb. When I went to cut them, they fall apart. I did finely grind the flaxseed. I’m wondering if I soake the flaxseed in some water and let sit for 5 minutes if that would help bind it together. I don’t want to use more dates as this will make them too sweet. Any thoughts?
