No Bake Healthy Chocolate Brownies

No Bake Healthy Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are easy to make and make great gifts (wrapped in a cellophane bag with ribbon).  I served them yesterday as the main feature of a desert platter for Christmas dinner.


  • 2 cups toasted sunflower seeds (any variety of nuts or seeds will work)
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • Optional: 1-4 drops good quality essential oil.  For my Christmas brownies, I used 2 drops peppermint, 2 drops sweet orange essential oils
  • Optional: Toppings such as goji berries, flaked coconut, pumpkin seeds etc.


Add all ingredients to a food processor or high powered blender or Thermomix.  Puree until ingredients are well combined, in a cookie-dough consistency.  Press into a cake tin to desired brownie thickness.

Store in refrigerator until serving.  Cut into slices as large or small as you desire.

To make a brownie desert platter

Arrange brownie slices onto a platter, with plenty of room in between pieces.  Surround with seasonal cut fruit and mint leaves.
