No-Bake Chocolate & Orange Brownies

If you’re like me, you’ve got a sweet tooth. Growing up in a sugar-fuelled society, it’s hard to avoid having cravings for chocolate, cake, ice-cream and all the caramel drizzled things that exist.

But the reality is sugar is kind of like a drug. It triggers your reward systems and leaves you wanting more.

These 5 ingredient plant-based brownies are the perfect hit when you fancy something chocolatey but don’t want to fill yourself with refined sugars and crap. No oven required. I’ve added orange zest & juice to give some extra zing, but if orange isn’t your thing, feel free to leave it out.


Makes a tray (I usually cut them up into chunks because a little goes a long way)

  • 110g almond butter
  • 235g dates
  • 50g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 115g walnuts
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Juice from 1/2 orange
  • Some pecans or walnuts on top to decorate!


Pre-line a brownie pan or baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Pop your walnuts into a food processor and blitz until they’re finely ground. Add the other ingredients and continue to process until it all comes together as a dough.

Place into your pre-lined tin and spread out. Decorate with some pecans or leftover walnuts!

Chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours, then slice & enjoy!

These should keep for up to a week in an air-tight container in the fridge.
