No-Bake Vegan Brownies Recipe

By Dr. Josh Axe

April 20, 2021

What’s better than a health-minded, homemade dessert that you don’t even need to turn on the oven to make?

Our no-bake vegan brownies not only taste great, but they’re also chock full of ingredients you can feel good about eating — including almond flour, nut butter, pumpkin, and Ancient Nutrition’s Plant Protein+ Chocolate powder.

Why include plant protein powder in brownies? Because it takes brownies from being a now-and-then treat to a feel-good-about-it snack you can indulge in regularly.

Our Plant Protein+ Chocolate flavor features a rich and creamy taste and texture, plus provides you with plant-derived protein from a blend of real, organic superseeds (including pumpkin, flax, chia, hemp, sunflower, sacha inchi and watermelon seeds). Not only that, but you’ll get botanicals, energizing adaptogens, and a touch of performance MCTs (medium chain fats) from our unique plant protein powder.

The result? Decadent brownies that are a good source of protein, fiber and performance fats, and that are relatively low in sugar and carbs, all without compromising on taste.
