These super rich and fudgy flourless brownies require no baking, use just 4 ingredients and are designed specifically for breakfast! They are completely naturally sweetened, protein-packed and are vegan, gluten free, paleo, dairy free and refined sugar free!
4 cups raw unsalted cashews, divided Can sub for almonds, pecans or walnuts
2 cups Medjool dates, packed
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1-4 scoops protein powder Optional
1/4 tsp sea salt Optional, but brings out the sweetness
Line an 8 x 6 loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a high-speed blender (one which can pulse nuts) or food processor, add all your ingredients, except for half the nuts and process until almost completely smooth. Add the rest of the nuts and blend until the nuts are roughly blended in. If you include protein powder, you may need some liquid to form batter.
Transfer the thick brownie batter into the loaf pan and press firmly in place. Place in the refrigerator while preparing the frosting of choice.
Top no bake brownies with frosting of choice, top with a dash of sea salt and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes, before slicing into even sized bars.
