This recipe for Raw Walnut Brownies actually came out of another recipe I developed for Avocados from Mexico. It was part of the crust of a no-bake cheesecake I made and even though I could eat like 15 of them at once, I kept finding myself going for the crust first.
So naturally, I had to see how it would taste if the filling was ditched and I froze them into brownies.
Not surprisingly, cacao powder, walnuts, dates and sea salt make for a seriously delicious treat that literally takes 5 mins to make. The only downside being that they take 5 mins to make and therefore dessert has become all-too accessible.
But honestly, I could go for any of these recipes. I’m a total sucker for no-bake because I love anything easy and allows me to spend time with my best friend, Mr. Food Processor.

*these are best directly from the freezer and may get too soft if left out for too long. They still taste delicious though!
