Tips to make the best no bake brownies

No bake brownies are very easy to make by anyone. However, it is very important that you use a food processor – not a blender- to combine the ingredients properly together. The speed of the blade will warm the ingredients and create the perfect batter. Don’t try to make the recipe without a food processor or it will come out very different. Next, make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature, cold almond milk will harden the whole batter and it will be more difficult to blend. Finally, use fresh nut butter a freshly opened jar is the best as it is creamy, runny and has no lumps.

Chocolate Peanut butter frosting

  • 1/4 cup Peanut butter - no added oil, no added sugar, fresh and runny
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon Maple syrup - or liquid sweetener of your choice like sugar-free Monk fruit if keto or brown rice syrup, agave etc
  • 1 tablespoon Unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Line a loaf pan 9 inches x 5 inches with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • Process on medium speed until all the ingredients comes together and form a consistent brownie batter. It shouldn't take more than 30 seconds. The dough will be dark, stick and thick, that is what you want. If it looks very dry, can happen if you did not measure the flour precisely, add 1 extra tablespoon of almond milk. Process again.
  • Gather the brownie batter with your hands, it is sticky so you can wet your hands to make this easier. Transfer the no bake brownie batter onto the prepared loaf pan and press to flatten using a silicone spatula. Freeze for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile prepare the frosting.

Chocolate peanut butter frosting

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine together peanut butter, maple syrup and unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Remove the brownie from the freezer and spread the chocolate frosting on top. Note that the frosting will stay shiny and sticky it won't solidify it is a soft creamy topping.

      Yes sure, you can use ground chia seeds instead simply pulse whole chia seed into a powder in your blender, measure the ground chia seeds and use in same ratio in this recipe as a sub to flaxmeal. Enjoy! XOXO Carine.

    Did you use CACAO powder or COCOA powder? You state COCOA powder but have a link to CACAO powder on Amazon. I believe they taste different but what do you recommend? Are they interchangeable? Was that a spelling mistake?

    I don’t have a food processor but I have a nutty ninja. Do you think I can use the nutri ninja instead of a food processor ?

      I know I am replying too late in here as you already told me on Faceboo that your Ninja blender did the job perfectly! So exciting to know that this recipe doesn’t require a food processor! Thanks for sharing, XOXO Carine.

      Yes, on the back of the PB2 jar it states the amount of water needed to compare to regular peanut butter consistency from a jar. I believe its 1 Tbsp water for 2 Tbsp powder. Also this reduces the amount of fat in the recipe significantly, 9g of fat for the whole batch. Hope this helps!

      You will need way more oat flour to balance coconut flour because coconut flour has 4 time more fiber than oat and therefore it is highly liquid absorbent. Enjoy the brownies, XOXO Carine

    We made these (and two other recipes of yours!) over the weekend and WOW! These are so delicious and we are keeping them cut I to little squares for a grab and go treat in the freezer! Thank you!

      Coconut flour is 4 times more absorbent than almond or nut flour so if you want to replace it, you may need 4 times more and the texture will be softer. XOXO Carine
