Vegan no bake brownies

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup chopped Medjool dates
  • 1 cup rolled oats (see Tip)
  • 1 cup almond butter or other nut butter
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Prep 15 minutes
  • Ready In 1hour 20 minutes
  1. Soak dates in hot water to cover in a medium bowl for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving the soaking water.
  2. Meanwhile, line an 8-inch-square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving extra hanging over 2 sides. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. Process oats in a food processor until finely ground. Add the drained dates, nut butter, cocoa powder and salt; process until very finely chopped. If the mixture seems dry, add a little of the reserved soaking water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Spread the mixture evenly and firmly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Remove from the pan by lifting the overhanging parchment. Cut into 16 squares.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
