No-Bake, Almond Joy

Brownie Fudge

 gluten free, dairy free, vegan, paleo

As you can tell, it got a bit messy around here with this delicious brownie fudge but honestly, there’s not many days that I don’t have some sort of chocolate on my face now and then so it’s nothing new here.

This was sort of a random creation and I have a failed recipe to thank for it. While I was waiting for something to cook in the oven (that wasn’t going so well :/) , I thought of making some kind of no-bake brownie recipe because I’ve been wanting to make some for a while now to put up on this blog. I had dates which is the base for this recipe so I just decided to go for it and sure enough, they turned out amazing!!!…on the first try. It’s the recipes I don’t try super hard for that always turn out the best. My sister and I may or may not have been snacking on them nonstop because WOW so good. My sister also helped me with the name for these because she said they they reminded her of an Almond Joy.

The key to this recipe is the food processor. I would highly recommend using it over a standard blender but if your appliance is high powered enough, it will work. The batter gets very sticky so you want something that can handle that texture.

Substitutions & Additions


  • The almonds can be substituted with any nut of your choice

  • The chocolate chips can be substituted with dairy free chocolate chips to make this recipe completely dairy free

  • Liquid sweeteners include maple syrup, honey, and agave syrup

  • The nondairy milk can be substituted for any milk you prefer

  • The coconut oil can be substituted with any oil you prefer or with melted butter


  • Coconut flakes would be a great addition! Try adding 1/4 cup to the batter

  • You can also include additional nuts to the batter if you want it super nutty!


**note: the almonds and coconut oil are essential in achieving the Almond Joy taste

This No-Bake, Almond Joy Brownie Fudge is quick and simple to make! It can easily be stored in the fridge to snack on or give out to friends and family!
