5 Minute No Bake Paleo Brownies
No-bake brownies- made in 5 minutes in a food processor. Soft, chewy, healthy, chocolate brownies made with real raw ingredients! Gluten free, paleo, and raw.
These no bake brownies are literally what dreams are made of.
Dreaming of no bake brownies are we?
… YES, just yes.
Unbelievably good and the ingredient list will blow your mind.
Because these brownies are so healthy!
Made with 100% pure legitimate chocolate brownie batter flavor.
No, seriously, the frosting tastes like brownie batter, yum!
The brownie part is just the most yummy, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth, caramelly, no-bake brownie.
I was a bit anxious to serve these to guests at first, because I didn’t know what the response would be to no-bake brownies. I mean whoever heard of such a thing? So, I knew they either thought I was going to serve them raw brownie batter in a bowl and pass out spoons; or I was going to place before them something ultra healthy and odd, like cauliflower brownies or something (hmmm, I should think about that one).
Turns out I did neither and the feedback from my connoisseurs was more than acceptable and dissipated any nervousness at shaming the name of brownies with some brown sludge.
These no bakes are INCREDIBLY-mind-blowing easy!! Like, did I say- EASY! In 5 minutes they can be ready. That’s how easy, people. Everything gets blended in my favorite kitchen tool- the food processor and then it’s time to eat all the chocolate!
And… just when you didn’t think that brownies couldn’t get any healthier when they are already raw, no bake, paleo, sugar free, made with only a handful of real food ingredients, I tell you that they have marine collagen from Vital Proteins. And that practically makes them a complete meal (not really, please don’t count this as a your breakfast, lunch, or dinner for the next week… although you will want to!!).
You’re gonna fall in love with these no-bakes!
Don’t say I didn’t warn you when you bite into one of these and fall in love… It happens to the best of us- YOU’RE NOT ALONE. Your freezer will be your best friend or your worst enemy when it comes to these brownies. And your freezer will both safely hold these addicting treats for you for timely and convenient snacking casualties… But then again, they will also hold these addicting treats for you; outta site outta mind… Or are they?
I have found that most of the time, these no-bakes disappear too fast! Even when they are “safely hidden” in the depths of the freezer. If you see me head first, legs and bare feet dangling out of my oversized chest freezer, you’ll know what’s going down. No need to ask, just jump in and join me in the search for brownies! It will be well worth the shiver producing hunt.
For everyone interested in finding out which food processor I use (EVERY. DAY.) here it is.

Fudgey Paleo Applesauce Brownies
- 1 1/2 cup dates
- 3/4 cup raw cashews
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons marine collagen peptides optional
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil

- dash of sea salt
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
- In a food processor blend all ingredients for the brownies until the cashews have been blended and color/texture is evenly smooth. Press dough into the bottom of a 6" by 3" baking pan lined with parchment paper (I use a small cake pan- you can also use a bread loaf).
- Then blend ingredients for the frosting in the food processor and spread on brownies. Chill in freezer or serve right away!

Looks amazing! Can you tell us why you added collagen in the first place? Curious how it affects the outcome of the recipe (other than the health benefits).
Hi Tiffany, I added collagen, because I love balancing out my sweet treats with a protein boost, so I don’t get a major sugar crash! 🙂
Hi Tiffany! I’m super excited to make these delicious treats! Did you melt the coconut oil down to liquid form before adding it into the mixtures? Thanks!
Just love these! These are my go to Paleo sweet treat. Thank you!
Thank you Caroly! That’s great to hear!
Hi, how long would you leave them at room temperature once you’ve taken them from the freezer (if you’ve managed to store them for any length of time)? Thanks!
Hi Abi, I eat them right out of the freezer 🙂
I’m a few weeks into paleo and I decided to search for something sweet to make. These absolutely hit the spot! I added beef collagen powder for the extra protein. Thanks, you’ve been a life saver on my paleo journey!
Thank you so much Jenny, glad to hear you are loving these. 🙂
How long do you put them in the freezer? When i just store them in the fridge how many days can you keep them? Thx!
Hi Nathalie, I store them in the fridge for 4-5 days then pop them in the freezer for 1-3 months.
Can I use smooth almond butter instead of maple syrup (as i don’t really use maple syrup) ?:) thanks
Hi Barbora, I don’t think that would work very well… at least not if you want the same results. 🙂 They will be more dry and have no sweetness, yikes!
