5-Ingredient No-Bake Chocolate Covered Brownies

Seems like I’m currently on a chocolate marathon. I’ve been posting so many recipes recently that feature chocolate quite heavily. Not that I’ve had any complaints from you here or on my social media channels. I think it’s the time of year – it’s so cold and gloomy most days that I (and I’m sure many of you are with me on this one) need some comfort foods to keep me going! 

Luckily these no-bake brownies are healthier than your average brownie – packed with fibre and healthy fats from the dates and tahini. What makes them even better is that they only call for 5 ingredients and no oven! AND they’re dipped in chocolate to make them taste even more decadent and chocolatey! They’re so hard to resist. 

Many of you know by now that my 3 main ingredient obsessions are chocolate, tahini and dates – all three happen to be featured in this recipe. In fact, apart from the salt, those three are the only ingredients in this recipe! 

So if you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe using healthier ingredients but still tastes absolutely delish, you need to give these 5-ingredient no-bake chocolate covered brownies a try ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

What you’ll need to make these 5-ingredient no-bake chocolate covered brownies:

Dates – Medjool dates or other soft varieties work best to help the mixture blend. If youโ€™re using a dry date variety, youโ€™ll need to soak them in hot water for 10 minutes to soften them.

Tahini – You can use other nut/seed butters, but tahini works really well in terms of the flavour. Runny tahini works best. I always use Lebanese tahini as it has the best consistency for desserts/baking. You can get them from Asian/ethnic shops or online.

Cocoa powder – To make them rich, chocolatey and decadent!

Salt – To help enhance the flavours

Dark chocolate – This adds an even more intense chocolatiness. You can still enjoy them without if you want a lighter brownie.
