What are raw brownies?
Raw vegan brownies are unbaked chocolate slices or brownies that can be made without an oven. As a result, no-bake recipes are dairy-free, egg-free, and often known as raw vegan desserts. While most raw recipes use dried fruits, this recipe doesn’t.
It is a vegan sugar-free brownie recipe entirely sweetened with sugar-free maple-flavored syrup.
How to make no-bake brownies?
You don’t need much to make delicious no-bake recipes. First, you must have a good food processor. Indeed, most no-bake recipes require breaking or pulsing nuts into a powder to form the raw batter. So it is necessary to have a food processor to make these raw brownies.
Next, make sure you have sugar-free maple-flavored syrup. While any syrup will work in this recipe, you want to make vegan sugar-free brownies, right? So it is better to gather the right ingredient.
Finally, a freezer is very useful to set your raw brownies quickly. However, if you only have a fridge, it will work too. It will simply take a bit longer to set the brownies.

Healthy vegan brownies ingredients
Those are the most healthy vegan brownies you can make. In fact, raw baking doesn’t involve high temperature and preserve all the nutrients of the food.
Let’s see the health benefits of every single ingredient in this recipe:
- Almonds – High in vitamins E, magnesium, and healthy omega 3 fat.
- Coconut product – this brownie combine unsweetened coconut, coconut flour, and coconut oil. For a long time, people thought that the fat in coconut products was unhealthy because of its high amount of saturated fat. However, it is now proven that the fat in coconut is actually good Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) fat that accelerate fat burning on a keto diet. Also, coconut oil contains the highest amount of lauric acid, a natural anti-fungal used for its benefits on the candida diet.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder cover 77 % of your iron and 140% of your magnesium needs, based on the daily value of a 2,000 calorie diet.
- Sugar-free maple-flavored syrup – this syrup is keto-friendly, it has no sugar, no carbs, and it is naturally made of Monk fruit and vegetable gum. It binds ingredients in this raw brownies recipe while adding natural sweetness without carbs.

- In a food processor with the S blade attachment, add all the raw brownies ingredients. The order has no importance.
- Process on medium speed until all the ingredients come together, about 2-3 minutes. You may have to stop the food processor every 1 minute, scrape down the bowl and repeat until it forms a sticky and thick batter. It is ok if some bites of almonds are left, but they must be pulsed enough to form flour that brings all the ingredients together.
- If it is too dry, adjust with 1 tablespoon of water at a time, or if it is too wet, add 1 teaspoon extra coconut flour.
- Transfer the raw brownies batter into a brownies loaf pan covered with parchment paper. You can also lightly grease the parchment paper with coconut oil to make sure the batter doesn't stick.
- Freeze the brownie while you prepare the frosting.
Raw brownies frosting
- In a medium-size microwave safe-proof, add the coconut oil and sugar-free syrup.
- Microwave by 30 seconds burst until the coconut oil is melted. If your coconut oil is already melted, you can skip this step and combine all the frosting ingredients.
- Whisk in vanilla essence and unsweetened cocoa powder until it forms a shiny frosting with no cocoa powder lumps.
- Remove the raw brownies from the freezer and evenly spread the frosting on top of your brownies using a spatula.
- Bring the brownie back to the freezer for 10 minutes or until the frosting is half set.
- Warm a knife blade under a flame or hot water. Dry the blade with a towel and slice the brownie into 16 brownies slices.
- You can store your raw brownies in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks
- If desired, freeze the brownies slices in a plastic bag, don't stack them, or they will be difficult to unfreeze one-by-one. Defrost at room temperature for 1 hour and enjoy!
