3 years, 4 months.
As I recently learned in The Top 10 Dadabase Posts Of All Time: 4 Years And Counting, non-vegans out there are depending on us plant-based familes to be the Guinea pigs to test out new recipes to share with them.
So now that I know the most popular Dadabase post I’ve ever written in the past 4 years was No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls… Jealous Much?, which was only written just two months ago, I figured I need to be clever enough to do a sequel.
Like her other recipe, the prep time is quick (about 15 minutes or so) and the ingredients are few. Here are the ingredients for “Simple Raw Vegan Brownies with Icing“:
- 2 cups raw walnuts
- 2 cups pitted dates
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
- 6 tbsp raw almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
I just told Mommy, after discovering Gluten-Free-Vegan-Girl‘s no bake recipes, I don’t even miss baked goods- and definitely not ones that contain dairy and eggs.
Needless to say, you and your chocolate mouth agree, as you can see from these pictures. You even got the first taste, as you stuck your finger in like Little Jack Horner.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about this awesome and delicious recipe is that in addition to containing no animal products or gluten, nor does it require any baking… the recipe also contains no added sugar!
But you would neverknow it.
In fact, I didn’t realize that until just now. I actually had to ask Mommy to make sure I wasn’t reading that wrong.
I’m serious. Between this and the No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, I’m all set when it comes to sweet treats.
As a plant-based kid getting to enjoy wonderful recipes like these, I really don’t think anyone can feel sorry for you.
When it comes to desserts, you are in vegan Guinea pig heaven!
