Are you a chocolate fan? If the answer is yes, then we must be friends! Because I’m a long-time chocoholic, and I’m totally good with it. I might not be able to eat gluten (or dairy, or grains, for that matter), but I CAN have chocolate. And I love it! Today’s new recipe is for a “healthy” dessert that I think you’re gonna like: No-Bake Grain Free Brownies.

No Bake Grain Free Brownies Recipe Questions & Answers

  1. Do you bake these brownies? No! You simply mix the ingredients in a food processor, press into a pan and stick in the freezer for 30 minutes. So they are actually “raw” (if you are looking for that, lol).
  2. Do these taste like brownies? So the answer is yes and no. Obviously since they are grain-free, they won’t have that “fluffiness” – but they DO have a super chocolate taste! My kids LOVE them. I honestly thought I’d be the only one eating them, but alas – they were gone before I got to have 3 of them!
  3. Are they healthy? YES! Think about it – seeds, ghee and minimal maple syrup … these are all real ingredients with lots of nutritional value to them. They feel guilty but in essence they aren’t – at all!!

No Bake Grain Free Brownies are:

  • Grain-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Vegan
  • Raw
  • Easy and quick to make
  • Low in sugar

Ingredients used in No Bake Grain-Free Brownies:

  • I discovered this chocolate-flavored ghee at a convention this year and fell in love. I seriously had to make my kids not eat it all before I made this recipe and photographed it. It’s tough to find in stores, so I’m thankful that Amazon has it because it’s one of my faves!! You can substitute regular ghee if you need to, but I promise you won’t be disappointed if you buy the chocolate flavored Chocti. I spread it on toast, on caramelized bananas and more. 
  • While I used hemp milk, you can certainly substitute your milk of choice. 
  • These hemp seeds are my favorite. I like to sprinkle them on soups, salads, in smoothies, and use them in this recipe.
  • This is my favorite brand of natural parchment paper
  • After having the same food processor for 16 years, I upgraded last year and haven’t looked back! This food processor is SO much easier to clean and has so many more functions. Yay!
