No Bake Fudge Brownies

The other day, I realized I had a container of dates that had been sitting in the fridge for about a week. I knew I had to use them up quickly, and I have been SO into raw desserts lately. Raw, chocolate fudge brownies was the answer! They turned out so delicious that I had to develop a recipe for them. There is a brownie layer, and a frosting layer that sort of melts into the brownie layer, which definitely elevates the texture and flavor profile.

I love this recipe because it comes together in about ten minutes. Keep these brownies in the freezer, and pull them out when you are in the mood for a decadent, cold, refreshing brownie made with real ingredients. Enjoy!!

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

For the blueberry layer:

  • 1 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. In a food processor, process dates until small pieces are formed. Remove from processor.
  2. Process almonds and coconut shreds until a fine meal forms. Add dates back in and process again until dough forms.
  3. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Transfer the dough mixture and pack it evenly to the bottom of the dish. Refrigerate until you are ready to pour the cheesecake layer on top. 

For the blueberry cheesecake layer:

  1. In a high powdered blender, combine soaked, rinsed and drained cashews, coconut oil, coconut cream, maple syrup, vanilla extract and matcha powder.

  2. Blend until smooth and creamy and pour batter over the crust and freeze for at least two hours.
  3. When ready to serve, cut into squares. Keep frozen for up to one month.

Recipe Notes

  • For the cashews, soak in bowl with filtered water for six hours prior to using. Then, rinse through a strainer and you're good to go!
  • If your dates are a bit hard, soak in warm filtered water for a few minutes before using so that they soften.
  • For the coconut cream, I buy full fat coconut cream and scoop off the top layer of cream. This usually comes out to exactly 1/2 cup which is what this recipe calls for.

Raw Vegan Matcha Cheesecake Bars

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am a huge fan of matcha green tea. I drink it almost every morning and it’s a vital part of my morning routine. Matcha is unique because it contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that helps balance out the caffeine content. While matcha may contain the same amount of caffeine as other types of tea, the L-Theanine is known to create calmness without drowsiness. It is also known to increase energy and focus! Switching from coffee to matcha helped me in my journey to heal my adrenals and keep my anxiety at bay. I have grown to LOVE the taste and wanted to incorporate it into a dessert. Today’s recipe is a raw vegan cheesecake bar made with cashews, coconut cream, coconut oil and high quality matcha green tea powder. The crust is made with dates, almonds and shredded coconut making the most delicious snack or dessert!

I’ve tried a few brands of matcha over the past year or so. My favorite brand is Soar Organics because I think the quality is extremely high and it is much more affordable than some of the other brands on the market.
