The BEST Chocolate Fudge Brownies (raw, vegan, gluten free)

This is one of my go-to dessert recipes—simple, chocolatey, and satisfying to even non-vegans / raw foodies. It’s a great raw dessert to share, as it’s one that holds its shape well, even when set out at room temperature for several hours.


  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup dates
  • 5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 4 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp teaspoon Himalayan sea salt


  1. Place pecans alone in a food processor and process until they  become small and crumbly.
  2. Add dates to the pecans and process again until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and process again until the mixture turns a delectable dark chocolate brown. Stop processing before it gets too buttery/oily. (There should still be air between the small bits so that you will be able to press them down into your brownie pan.)
  4. Press the mixture firmly into a brownie dish or small cake pan using your clean hands or a spatula.
  5. Refrigerate for a couple of hours to make it easier to slice.
  6. Store this raw brownie recipe in the refrigerator or freezer.
