Fudge Brownies

These vegan and gluten free fudge brownies contain no added sugar or oil. And yet, they are rich, moist and decadent. Despite the appeal, each brownie has 8 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.

Servings 6


  • 1/2 cup walnuts raw, soaked if possible
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 5 Tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a small baking pan with parchment paper. I actually used a bread pan, as the square 8 in pan was too large for this recipe. Cut diagonally from the corners of the paper to allow it to lay flat inside the pan.
  • Blend (or use a food processor) walnuts, water, dates and vanilla until smooth. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and use a spatula to blend thoroughly. Transfer to baking pan.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes.


There is no added sugar in this recipe. I dashed some powdered sugar onto the top of these to make the picture look better. These are so rich and sweet, however. It's not necessary unless you want a better aesthetic.
