No Bake Double Layer Brownies Mariel Lewis April 11, 2015 American, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Spring, Treats, Vegan, Vegetarian 3 Comments This little gem is the second dessert I took to our Easter family get together this year. I promised I'd post it, and so here it is...in all of its chocolate-y glory! It's incredibly rich, decadent and satisfying. One for the books for sure! These brownies do not require baking; the ingredients don't need cooking and they bind together nicely all on their own. It'd be considered a RAW-Vegan dessert if it wasn't for the powdered sugar added on the second layer, but you can substitute that ingredient with honey or maple syrup and make it a fully RAW treat. The dessert is Vegan however, and that means, no animal products were used to crate it. These No Bake Double Layer Brownies call for one of my favorite ingredients out there: medjool dates. These little fellows are nature's best sweetener. Just eat one by itself and you'll see what I mean; they are so sweet, so smooth, so pure. They have a caramel-like taste, with notes of honey and cinnamon. YUM. Each date is only like 60 calories, but it provides high levels of energy and great essential minerals to your body. Such a cool little fruit. I love to keep medjool dates at home in case I want to whip up a fun all-natural dessert; I also love to add them to my homemade fruit "NiceCreams" or granolas. They provide the right amount of sweetness every single time. One thing to keep in mind is that they are a bit expensive, so if you buy them, be sure to eat them in time before they start to dry out and become a little more difficult to manage. And remember, they have a rather large single seeds inside, so remove those before consumption.
