Intensely Fudgy No-Bake Cocoa Brownies

These no-bake brownies are so fudgy and a breeze to whip up! Made with cocoa powder, almond flour, hemp seeds and flax meal, they’re a delicious no-cook chocolate dessert. For best results, refrigerate the brownies in a bread pan lined with parchment paper for 2 hours before serving.

Prep: 5 minCook: chill time 1 hourTotal: 5 min
Servings: 8 brownies 1x



  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar (honey or maple syrup also works)
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (Cacao v. Cocoa Powder: What’s the Difference?)
  • 1/4 cup melted refined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Toppings Ideas

  • sprinkles
  • cut up peanut butter cup
  • chocolate chips
  • chocolate icing
  • flakey salt
  • chopped nuts


  1. Put almond flour and hemp hearts in the food processor. Process for 30 seconds until chopped and combined.
  2. Add agave, cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt. Process until combined and the batter balls up. If needed, use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides, chop up the ball and process again. But, the batter should come together in about 30 seconds. 
  3. Place batter into bread pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Use a rubber spatula or lightly dampen your hands and press the batter down until it is evenly distributed across the bottom and into the corners of the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the top with whatever toppings you like!
  6. Place in the freezer to set for about 1 hour.
  7. Remove the brownies from the pan by pulling the parchment paper.
  8. Peel back the parchment paper and cut the brownies into 8 squares.
  9. Enjoy!!
