No Bake Paleo Vegan Brownies stacked on top of one another.

Healthy No Bake Brownies

I’ve already shared a healthy brownie recipe, but I wanted something a little more quick and easy to whip up. With the holiday season approaching, I wanted a healthy no-bake dessert to make its way into the mix. 

It’s been wanting to do a play on one of my no bake cookie recipes. We’ve had coconut no bake cookies, brownie no bake cookies and peanut butter no bake cookies. It’s time for some brownie action!

I’m a fan of raw and un-baked brownies, but most of them are made with loads of nuts and dried fruit. As someone who thrives on snacks based around a keto diet, I wanted these no bake brownies to be made without dates and without nuts. 

This healthy no bake raw brownies recipe has your bases covered. Because they are made with no dates or any dried fruits, they are keto-friendly and super low carb. They also are even fudgier and have the best gooey texture. 

Another reason why I love these healthy no bake brownies is that they are ridiculously quick and easy to whip up! You simply combine the ingredients together and while it’s chilling, you prepare the healthy ganache! Once that is done, you simply top the brownies with them and allow it to chill completely!

Whether you are needing a quick and healthy dessert or a sweet snack to satisfy the sweet tooth, these raw paleo and keto brownies are your answer. 

Gooey, fudgy and deceptively rich, these raw brownies may taste sinful, but I promise they are made with wholesome, healthy ingredients- Suitable for those following a paleo and vegan diet!

No Bake Paleo Vegan Brownies

To make these healthy no bake brownies, you only need 5 ingredients-

  • Healthy homemade ‘Nutella’ 
  • Coconut Flour
  • A sticky sweetener of choice
  • Chocolate Chips of choice
  • Coconut Cream 

Homemade Healthy Nutella

To keep this recipe 100% paleo, vegan and ketogenic, I opted to make a homemade Nutella. It’s super simple and can easily be adjusted to your desired sweetness level.

I’ve tried out a few variations but this combination of ingredients produces the smoothest, creamiest healthy ‘Nutella’ that is perfect for this recipe-

Firstly, toast your hazelnuts at 175C/300F for 15-20 minutes, until fragrant and toasted. Allow cooling slightly, before adding to a high-speed blender or food processor. 

Blend or pulse for 5-10 minutes, until it resembles a smooth and creamy texture. Ensure you regularly scrape down the sides using a rubber spatula.

Add your granulated sweetener of choice and cocoa powder and blend for 4-5 minutes. Add your unsweetened milk of choice and blend until a thick and creamy texture remains. Do not over blend, unless you want a super silky and smooth ‘Nutella’.

For the granulated sweetener of choice, I used monk fruit sweetener, which is stevia-based and keto-friendly. If you follow a refined sugar free diet, coconut palm sugar works, and it is paleo and vegan.

Coconut Flour or substitutes

Coconut flour is one of my most used and favorite ingredients. If you aren’t familiar with it, let’s just say a little goes a long way. Coconut flour is like a sponge and when combined with the homemade ‘Nutella’ and sticky sweetener, produces the fudgiest, doughy texture.

Granted, I understand not everyone has access to or is a fan of coconut flour.

Substituting coconut flour for almond meal or almond flour will work but ensure you double the amount, at a minimum. If the brownie batter is too thin, add more. 

The Sticky Sweetener of Choice

This recipe is keto-friendly, so using an approved keto sweetener was mandatory. I used a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, which has low carbs and no sugar. 

For my non-keto friends, you can use pure maple syrup, which is paleo and vegan-friendly.

Easy fool-proof 2-ingredient ganache frosting

My go-to healthy chocolate frosting needs just 2 ingredients- 

  • Chilled canned coconut milk
  • Chocolate chips of choice

Remove the chilled canned coconut milk from the fridge. Fill half a cup with all the coconut cream (the thick, firm layer at the top), and if any space is remaining, top with extra coconut milk. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, melt 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. To keep it keto-friendly, I used stevia sweetened chocolate chips. Refined sugar free friends, you can use these paleo and vegan dairy free chocolate chips.

Once melted, whisk in your coconut cream mixture until silky and smooth.

  • Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add your smooth healthy homemade Nutella, sticky sweetener of choice and coconut flour. Mix very well until a thick, gooey batter remains. If the batter is too thin, add a little extra coconut flour. If the batter is too thick, add some liquid or extra syrup. 
  • Transfer the batter to the lined pan and spread out using a spatula. Refrigerate. 
  • While the brownie base is in the refrigerator, prepare your half cup of coconut cream/milk. In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your chocolate chips and coconut milk and melt until combined.
  • Pour your chocolate ganache over the brownie base and refrigerate until firm. Once firm, cut into 10 bars. 


* I used a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup. For a 100% refined sugar free option (not keto-friendly), use pure maple syrup or agave.
** Adjust accordingly. For ultra fudgy brownies, reduce the amount
*** See the post for the correct separation of the coconut cream/coconut milk. This is important for the ultra thick texture. 
Healthy Paleo Vegan No Bake Brownies (Keto, Low Carb) should be kept refrigerated at all times, in a sealed container. They are freezer friendly too, for up to 2 months.
