Passover friendly no bake frosted brownies

Growing up Passover was always a tricky one to navigate; you see for eight days Jewish people don’t eat anything leavened, so bread, pasta and cake are all out of the question. Not great for a Jewish girl born in April growing up in a time when free from birthday cakes were definitely not a thing. But I’m over it. Just about.

These days Passover is a pretty easy one for me to keep as a lot of the stuff that isn’t allowed I don’t eat anyway, but many people avoid some nuts as well during this time. Luckily some (like walnuts) are ok, so I’ve created this AMAZING no bake brownie recipe which uses walnuts to give them the most wonderful flavour and texture. Mr H even said these are better than my baked brownies, and he is a man who has eaten a lot of brownies in his time.

These are so easy to make, and the frosting on top just gives them that extra level of decadence. Just a few ingredients and no baking needed. So whether you’re celebrating Passover or not, these brownies are something I would thoroughly recommend you make!

Makes 8-10 brownies

Ingredients

For the brownies

  • 2 cups dates
  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut cream

For the frosting

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream

To make the brownies, simply combine the ingredients in a food processor and whizz until you have a sticky mixture. Press this down into a lined loaf tin with the back of a spoon until the mixture is flat and evenly squashed down.

For the frosting, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on a very low heat, then in a bowl combine it with the other ingredients and gently stir until you have a smooth mixture. Pour this onto the brownie layer and place the loaf tin in the freezer for four hours to set. Once it has hardened on top, slice the brownies into squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge for upto a week. They also freeze really well too!
