Recipe: No Bake Gluten-Free Brownies

These gluten-free no bake chocolate brownies are utterly divine – chewy, gooey and incredibly chocolatey. They are also easy to make and do not require any baking.

Brownies

1 1/2 Cups (171g) Almond Flour
1/2 cup (46g) Cocoa/Cacao Powder
1/2 cup (157g) Maple Syrup
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Fine Salt
1 1/2 Cups (210g) Cashew Nuts

Ganache

3 tbsp Coconut Oil, Solid
3 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Milk of Choice

Method

Mix the almond flour, cocoa powder in a bowl. Put the maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt and cashews into a food processor or blender. Process until creamy. Add the cashew mixture into the almond flour mixture and work until it forms a dough. Line a tray with grease proof paper and press the mixture into it. Freeze for 20 minutes. For the ganache, melt the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cocoa/cacao powder in a bowl over the pan of boiling water. Once melted, remove from heat and add the milk. Stir well to combine. Allow the ganache to cool and thicken but keep checking so it doesn’t go too hard. Top the brownie with the ganache and then divide into squares. Keep brownies in the fridge in an air-tight container.
