Raw Vegan Brownie Recipes

I’ve now made 4 raw vegan brownie recipes and they all come out wonderfully. It’s absolutely incredible how easy these are, and I certainly wish that I’d discovered this brilliant method of indulging my sweet tooth a lifetime ago! All the variations of the recipe are based on using nuts or seeds, dates and cocoa and then sometimes adding some other ingredients like additional oil and/or coconut butter to get the right consistency if you’re using a dry nut, and possibly extra agave if you’ve used fewer dates.

Classic Raw Vegan Brownie Recipe

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

AND THAT’S IT!!! Seriously! Blend it up in the food processor and you will be wowed by how delicious and simple it is. You can add in some additional walnut pieces, or add icing or a sprinkle of cocoa powder to finish it off. Dried cherries would also be a nice addition. Press into a pan or container and let chill in the fridge or better yet the freezer. Slice and devour!

Raw Vegan Truffle Brownie – Nut Free!

I wanted to make a nut-free version of the brownie so this one is made with sunflower seeds! Topped with red cocoa powder.

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1.25 cup dates
  • 1 to 4 tbsp of coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • sprinkle of cocoa powder on top

Since the sunflower seeds are more dry than walnuts, you’ll need extra dates to hold it together as well as coconut butter. If you don’t have the coconut, just add additional dates until it comes together. Absolutely decadent!

Raw Mint Chocolate Brownies

  • Use your brownie base of choice and add some peppermint extract to the brownie. Top with Raw Vegan Mint Icing.

Though peanut butter isn’t raw (peanuts really need to be roasted or they just aren’t peanuts!) I plan to make a peanut butter cup brownie very soon too. I can already anticipate how riciculously delicious it’s going to be.

Raw Vegan Brownie, this time made with almonds so a bit of coconut butter and coconut oil was needed to help it bind together. Same excellent icing as before.
