No Bake Fudgy Mocha Brownies
Are no bake brownies even a thing?? Well, yes! These No Bake Brownies have the flavor of your favorite chocolate coffee drink and are all whipped up in no time! Fudgy and delicious!
- 2 1/2 cup raw pecans or cashews
- 1 c medjool dates pitted
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 tsp espresso powder
- Dash of sea salt optional
- 1-2 T milk of choice
- 1/3 c coconut oil (use refined if you don't want the coconut flavor)
- 1/3 c cocoa powder (heaping)
- 2 T maple or agave
- 1 tsp vanilla
- dash of sea salt
In a food processor, process pecans until fine and grainy. Pecans tend to release oil a bit faster than other nuts so they may get oily as well at this point.
Add in all other ingredients (except the milk) and process until a ball of dough starts to form. If the dough seems dry, add in milk one tablespoon at a time.
Press the dough FIRMLY into a parchment lined pan. (a 6x8 pan would probably work best because it will fill the entire pan but if you don't have one just press into one corner and there may be leftover space. You can make these thicker by using a smaller pan.
Whisk together all ingredients for the icing together until smooth. Spread icing over the brownies until covered and return to the refrigerator. Chill for another 10-15 minutes ( if you can wait that long!) Enjoy.
