5-Minute Lunch Box #6: Brownies-No Cooking Required


I had Jason help me out with his quick lunch box treat. These brownies are very kid-friendly and make a great healthy dessert or snack.  The taste reminds me of fudge :-)

I know you can't hear the audio, but when we finished, Simon said, "we're done already?" :-)

No-Bake Brownies

by Organic Avenue

Prep Time: 5 mins

Keywords: vegan

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 cup pitted dates ( I used Medjool but any dates should be fine)
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean (I used vanilla extract)
  • 2 tsp of water
  • Additional walnuts to top the brownies (optional)


In a food processor, grind the walnuts and salt until fine. Add the dates and process until dough forms. Next, add the cacao, vanilla, water and process again until well mixed.
