No Bake Dates & Nuts Brownies | No Bake Brownie Recipe

No Bake Dates and Nuts Brownies. #Recipe


No Bake Dates and Nuts Brownies is the answer if you are looking for a healthy and quick snack to munch on.

I had long wanted to try a no-bake brownie. But, being an ardent chocolate lover I had my doubts if such a brownie will be worth the try.

Well, we will never know about it unless we try. So for the 3rd day of the blogging marathon under the 'brownie theme,' I decided to try yet another version of our beloved brownies - No Bake & Raw Dates and Nuts Brownies.

I used this recipe as an inspiration to come up with my version. I didn't use chocolate ganache as I wanted to make it as healthy as possible. 

Let's check the recipe:

No Bake Dates and Nuts Brownies.

Ingredients:

1 cup dates, pitted and halved
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp Bournvita powder (optional)

Process:

1. Line a 6 inch tin with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a blender jar, add the pitted dates and blend it till it looks like a fudgy mess. Take it out into a large bowl.
3. Now finely powder the almonds in the same jar, followed by walnuts. I then added them together again in the blender jar together for a quick mix.
4. Add it to the bowl again, add cocoa powder and bournvita powder (if using). Using a spatula mix it and then tip it into the parchment-lined cake tin.
5. Spread it evenly and press it to get an even surface. Dust some cocoa powder or bournvita powder over the set brownies.
6. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then slice it. They are ready to devour.

Here are my thoughts on the No Bake Dates & Nuts Brownies

1. For those looking for really healthy brownies, it is a good choice. You can alter the quantities of nuts to suit your taste. Walnuts might give a slightly bitter taste in the end. So, you can use just 2 tbsp of it or skip altogether.

2. I think they tasted best after a day. The first day they tasted like dates and nut bar. But, on the second day, the flavour of cocoa was more pronounced giving it a good chocolatey taste.

3. If you want to make it more decadent, go ahead and cover the brownies with a layer of chocolate ganache. Or you might add some ganache into the dates and nuts mix. In that case, you might have to let the set brownies rest for a while before you slice to get neat slices.

Ingredients:

200 grams Bourbon biscuits
50 grams digestive biscuits
2-3 tablespoon Bournvita powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
About  ¾ cup +2 tbsp milk
1 tsp plain Eno Fruit Salt 
Butter or oil to grease the pan

Process:

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease an 8” square cake tin and line it with parchment
2. In a mixer jar, add the broken digestive biscuits, bourbon biscuits and churn it into a powder.
3. Take a large bowl and tip in the biscuit powder, add Bournvita powder, cocoa powder, and stir. Add milk little by little and whisk to get a smooth batter.
4. Add the Eno Salt to the batter and give it a quick stir. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
5. When baked, insert a skewer in the middle to see it comes out clean.
6. Take it out of the oven and let it cool down for 10 minutes. You can then lift the brownies out of the pan along with the parchment.
6. Once, the brownie has cooled down to room temperature, slice it into squares and serve with a generous drizzling of chocolate sauce.

Notes:

1. These brownies are not intensely chocolatey. So, it is best to serve them with a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

2. You can also add 1/2 cup choco chip or chocolate chunks in the batter for an intense chocolate flavour.

3. This recipe should also work with any other chocolate flavoured cream biscuits, like oreo, etc. Instead of digestive biscuits Marie biscuits or Milk Bikies can also be used.

Still, want to try making brownies the traditional way – check out some other recipes already posted here.

Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets | Eggless Beetroot Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets is a winner recipe. Quite healthy, easy to make and tastes quite awesome. www.jyotibabel.com

Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets is a winner recipe. Quite healthy, easy to make and tastes quite awesome.

If there is one thing that can make me forget all about conscious eating and diet control – it is chocolate. There are times when I do control myself from having that extra piece of the chocolate bar. But, on most occasions, it has the better of me. That’s why I prefer not having any chocolate bars at home. Perfect solution, isn’t it?

The intense chocolate flavour in fudge brownies is perhaps one of the reasons why I prefer them over cake any day. Give me a slice of soft, dense chocolatey brownie and I will wander into my chocolate nirvana. When I saw Srivalli had listed a brownie theme in the 78th edition of the Blogging Marathon, I instantly chose it.

I have already tried a number of brownie recipes and have shared a couple of them here. Check out these

Eggless Nutella Brownies
Eggless Chocolate Brownies
Eggless Fudge Brownies
One Bowl Eggless Brownies
Sinful Eggless Walnut Brownies
3 Minutes Microwave Brownies

Yet, there are so many brownie variations that are on my to-do list. I have seen many brownies with chocolate and beetroot combination doing rounds on the internet. So, I decided to try it myself. I used this recipe for fudge brownies as a standard and tweaked it to come up with this recipe. 

After having a slice of these beetroot fudge brownies, I realized beetroot and chocolate is a winning combination. There is no trace of any beetroot flavour. Unless you tell anyone, no one will ever make out this secret ingredient in the recipe. I used wheat flour and oil in this recipe to make it even healthier. Check out my recipe below.
Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets is a winner recipe. Quite healthy, easy to make and tastes quite awesome. www.jyotibabel.com

Eggless Fudge Brownies with Beets

Ingredients:

½ cup whole wheat flour or atta
¼ cup Maida or all-purpose flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp instant coffee
100 g dark chocolate
½ cup beet puree
½ cup powdered sugar + 2 tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup oil
¼ cup whisked yoghurt
¼ cup to ½ cup water
2 tbsp chopped walnuts

Process:

1. Line an 8” square brownie pan with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180 C.

2. In a large bowl add atta, maida, cocoa powder, coffee, and baking powder. Use a whisk to mix everything together. Set aside.

3. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and add it to a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it for 1 minute so that it melts. Whisk it to get smooth melted chocolate. To it add oil and stir. Add sugar and stir it again. Now add yoghurt and beets puree and whisk it nicely.

4. Add this wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients mixture. Add ¼ cup water and whisk to make a smooth batter. If the batter looks thick, add another ¼ cup water. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and top it with chopped walnuts.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. When done, a skewer inserted in the middle should come out clean.

6. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes before you can lift it from the pan along with the parchment paper. Slice and serve.

Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets is a winner recipe. Quite healthy, easy to make and tastes quite awesome. www.jyotibabel.com

Notes:

1. To prepare beets puree, I pressure cooked 2 medium beets. When cooled, I peeled and chopped them and churned in a mixer jar to get the puree.

2. For fudge brownies, I prefer lining the tin with parchment. Since fudge brownies are quite soft and mushy, it is easier to lift the brownies out of the tin along with the parchment.

3. Slice them after the brownie has cooled a bit for neat slices.

4. You can do away with the maida in the recipe and add whole wheat flour or oats flour instead.

5. You can also double the beets puree and omit the yoghurt and half the water amount to get red looking brownies.

6. I had run out my regular powdered sugar, so I used 2 tbsp of brown sugar. You can regular sugar too.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 9x9inch brownie pan with parchment paper. Brush it with a little butter.

2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt together.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk butter, yoghurt and vanilla together until well blended.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in batches and stir. Add water in batches till you get a condensed milk-like consistency. Stir in the chopped chocolates.

5. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared tin and bake it for 35 minutes. A skewer inserted in the middle of the brownie will come out clean.

6. Let it cool down at least for 2 hours before slicing. You will get neat slices then.

Notes:

- I have made this brownie a couple of times. First time I sliced it in just half an hour of cooling. The brownies didn't come out in neat slices. So, I make a point to bake it a day ahead for best results. Ideally, bake it in the evening, let it rest the whole night and have it next day.

- Do not skip adding chopped chocolates or choco chips, the melted chocolate adds another layer of taste and the gooey chocolate taste is awesome.

I have recently become an ardent 'Nutella' fan. I look forward to having it with toasted bread, or in my shake or in cold coffees. Even sometimes, I have the urge to have a spoonful of it by itself, licking the spoon to polish it off any trace of it. I know it is not all good, but sometimes I really want to indulge myself with whatever I like. 

For a long time I had wanted to try baking Nutella brownies and finally, I did bake them. In this festive season when everyone seems to be on baking high and when the blogging world seems to be flooded with baking recipes, I simply couldn't resist myself baking one. Just to make sure I do not end up eating all by myself, I shared them with a few people at work, and the way they came to thank me for these delicious brownies, I knew it was a hit.
