How to Make Best Healthy Raw Brownies
Before you ask, yes: these healthy raw brownies totally (& yummily) qualify as no bake or unbaked brownies! Meaning: no baking for you, my dear!
To make this raw cacao brownie recipe, simply add dates and almond butter to a food processor. Blend until you get a sticky, dough-like ball. Add almonds and blend again as directed. Then, add in the remainder of the ingredients and blend until the vegan brownie mixture is well mixed. Press mixture into a pan, chill until firm and slice! Enjoy. That’s it!

These healthy raw brownies are super unfussy and easy to store. Simply store in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temp (on the counter) for up to 1-2 months.
What kind of Substitutions can I make in this Healthy Raw Brownies Recipe?
- Can I use another dried fruit instead of dates? Yes! The flavor of the fruit will affect the flavor of the raw brownies.
- Can I use regular unsweetened cocoa powder? Yes!
- Can I swap the almonds for another kind of nut? Yes, however all nuts blend & release oil differently. Just keep that in mind. 😉

- 11 Medjool dates, pitted (3/4 cup, packed)
- ½ cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted, natural raw creamy almond butter
- ½ cup unsalted, raw almonds
- ½ cup raw cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon raw organic vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
- Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside. Clear some room in the freezer for this pan, you will need it later.
- Add dates and almond butter to a food processor. Blend until you get a somewhat cohesive, sticky mixture, like chunks of dough--the mixture should begin to pull away from the sides of the processor and roll into a ball. This will take about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the processor frequently, and take breaks in between to avoid overheating.
- Add in the almonds. Blend until almonds are nearly pulverized—about 1-2 minutes. Take breaks between blending to prevent overheating the processor. The mixture will be soft and crumbly. It’s done when you can roll a chunk in your palm and toss the chunk up in the air a bit, and it remains cohesive.
- Add cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt (if using). Blend until very well incorporated, making sure to scrape down the sides of the processor regularly.
- Pour into prepared baking pan and loosely spread into an even layer. Once evenly distributed, use a rubber spatula to press down very firmly into an even, tightly-packed layer. Chill in the freezer for 20 mins, or until very firm.
- Slice into 16 brownies. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
