No-bake fudge brownies

No-Bake Fudge Brownies for Passover

Local Plant-Based Chef and Food Entrepreneur Amit Solway is sharing this delicious no-bake brownie dessert with the Rooted community in honor of Passover! She chose this dessert because on Passover it’s not as much what you do eat, rather what you don’t eat. One of the main foods that is not kosher for Passover are grains - which can make whipping up a yummy dessert a tough task. Here’s is Amit’s quick and easy recipe for a decadent, grain-free Passover-friendly dessert!
Course Dessert
Servings 4 - 6 servings



  • 1 cup Almonds raw
  • 1 cup pecans raw
  • 1/2 cup nuts of your choice, hazelnut, pecans, walnuts etc. reserve, to top off brownie
  • 2 1/2 cups dates pitted – soak in warm water to soften.
  • 3/4 cups cocoa powder unsweetened
  • pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt


  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup either date syrup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup melted cacao butter or coconut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or one bean scraped
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt optional


  • Prepare the brownie mixture: using a food processor, place almonds, pecans, cocoa powder, and sea salt (if using) and pulse until fine mince (flour-like texture)
  • Slowly drop in the pitted dates while continuing to pulse until all dates are incorporated into the batter. If dates are wet from sail it’s okay. The mixture will be quite thick and balled up. (Cookie-dough texture)
  • Line a small brownie pan (9 in x 9 in) with parchment paper. Scoop out the brownie mixture and press into the pan, spreading evenly. Place aside.
  • For the frosting: using a food processor, add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Spread frosting over the brownies covering entirely (use a spatula or spoon).
  • Sprinkle the remaining chopped nuts over the top of the brownies.
  • Wrap and place in freezer for a minimum of 2 hours to firm up quickly.
  • Remove from freezer, slice and serve. Alternatively, these could be stored in the refrigerator.


• Pairs nicely with fruit like strawberry or raspberry garnish!
