UPGRADE – My favourite non-bake brownie 2.0
I actually didn’t think this recipe could get any better, but in my attempt to try something different, I ended up with an even better taste! Or at least different, and variation is, as we all know, GOOD:)
I bought the 70% chocolate with orange in it (by accident) and thought why not give that a try. I also wanted to upgrade the looks a little bit since it was my birthday, so I sprinkled som dried coconut chips on top. Last change was the variation of nuts. Instead of using only cashews, I added almonds and walnuts. It was really tasty!
RECIPE: Non bake brownie 2.0
- 150 g. dates (dried, no stones)
- 50 g. cashews/almonds/walnuts
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter*
- 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder*
- 1 knife point himalayan salt
- 50 g. dark chocolate with orange(70%)
- Dried coconut chips (like these)
*with a top
All ingredients should of course be organic:)
You can use a small food processor or a blender. If you don?t have any of those, you kan make it by hand, it will just be more coarse.
- The dates must be chopped up to a fine paste.
TIP: Leave the dates in some water for 30 minutes, that makes them easier to chop or to ?mash? with a spoon. Save some of the water they lay in for later use.
- Add in the nuts. I chopped them together with the dates, leave them in some water as well for at least 30 minutes. Makes them easier to chop and easier to digest.
TIP: Chop by hand if you like bigger pieces of nuts in your cake.
- Get the doughy paste into a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients.
TIP: Add in a little water if the paste is to dry, it depends on your dates, some are more moist than others.
- Get the paste into a round tin (or whatever you?ve got), and put it in the freezer.
TIP: I used a spring form, it can be difficult to cut out pieces otherwise.
- Melt the chocolate and pour it over the frozen cake. Sprinkle the coconut chips on while the chocolate is still melted. It will take som hours to freeze completely, but you can eat it sooner if you can?t wait;)
Enjoy it or leave it in the freezer for when you get a craving or have guests. It?s really good with some raw banana ice cream on the side!

It’s really great with coffee! For the next upgrade, I might spill some of my espresso in the dough;)! #simplyfood
