Vegan Gluten Free Fudge Brownies | © 2013 |

These fudge brownies are gluten-free, vegan, rich yet truly healthy, free from all processed ingredients. A delicious combination of fudge brownie with nuts, honey and fruit. Delicious desserts are unnecessary fatty, sugary and calorie intensive.

Vegan Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

adapted from Fitsugar
  • 200 g Dried dates, pitted
  • 120 g Walnuts, ground
  • 25 g Cocoa powder
  • 2 Ripe bananas
  • 40 g Cocoa powder
  • 120 g Peanut butter
  • 120 g Agave or maple syrup (I used honey)
  1. Mix together all crust ingredients in a food processor until well blended.
  2. Press it into a loaf pan lined with tin foil or plastic wrap until evenly distributed and set in the fridge while preparing the topping.
  3. Place all the ingredients for the topping in a food processor and process until well blended. Spread topping onto the crust layer base until evenly distributed. Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Cut into 16 squares. Serve and refreeze the rest. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

A healthy fudge doesn't get much better than that! :)

Blackswan 26/5/13 09:30

Olga P 26/5/13 16:22

Oh, that is a dream dessert!:)

Paula @ Vintage Kitchen Notes 26/5/13 22:15

Look yummmmy, but honey is not vegan. o_O You could just use agave or maple syrup instead.

@Anonymous Oops...I seriously thought honey was allowed in vegan diet. Thanks for pointing it out.
