Easy raw vegan brownies are a lifesaver for someone who loves rich and gooey brownies, minus the baking part. Making it requires only a few ingredients and little-to-no-time. So the next time you crave something sweet and chocolaty but don’t want to spend time by the oven waiting, I have got you covered!
I think that having or making dessert should not be hard. And having a dessert on hand whenever you feel like you need one is even better. This is what the easy raw vegan brownies recipe is about. It can be made in bigger batches and kept in the freezer. Also, it is only five simple ingredients, plus some salt to sprinkle on top. Delicious things never were easier!
I love dates. (And I’m talking food, alright?) I know it is still sugar, so if you are trying to avoid sugar, keep in mind that it is still a dessert that is high in calories and high in sugars. However, I just love making desserts out of dates. Like, the date caramel I use for vegan snickers or dates to add sweetness and moisture, as it is in this recipe.
In the brownies recipe, I use tahini paste and it gives a rich and nutty taste. However, if you are not a fan of tahini paste, you can easily swap it for peanut butter or almond butter. The rest of the ingredients, unfortunately, can not be changed. Since there would be no brownies without cocoa and chocolate!
Oh and the last but very important stuff to mention. Please, please, please, don’t forget to sprinkle the salt on top. The note of salty goes really well with the sweetness of dates.
