Two Minute Baked Brownies

Two Minute Baked Brownies

Two Minute Baked Brownies

  • 1 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 12 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Place the ingredients into your food processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a fine, sticky crumb.  Use your hands to press and shape the mixture into balls. I made 12.
  2. Place the balls onto a plate lined with baking paper and then into the microwave. Cook the brownies for 1 minutes and 40 seconds. Remove the balls from the microwave and leave to cool for 10 minutes before gently transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  3. Eat and enjoy!

*To make these in the oven preheat the oven to 175°C or 350°F and place on a lined tray. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before moving to a cooling rack.

    These are so quick & easy to make. And I love the provision of oven cooking times for those of us without a microwave in the house!! They taste great & have the perfect brownie consistency in the convenience of a bite sized ball 🙂

    • Thank YOU so much!!!! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the recipe. x

    Any suggestions on what to substitute for walnuts as my husband is allergic and would be upset about missing out on these?

    • You can use cashews? Most nuts will work but the walnuts are our fav. x

    Hi Bianca – we have a nut-free school and I’d love to make these as a lunchbox treat. Would sunflower seeds/pepita seed mixture substitute well for the walnuts? Thanks.

    • Hi Jen, you can try it, I would be inclined to try a mix of seeds and coconut. Have you seen the nut free chocolate cookies? They are similar. I hope this helps. Bianca

    These looked so good when we made them tonight, but unfortunately after the second minute in the microwave, they were fried! I was so sad to lose the batch… So I guess this is just a warning to others that may have a powerful microwave… One minute may be enough!

    • Oh Laura I am so sorry!!! Yes I will need to note on the recipe that one minute may be enough. I hope you find some other recipes that work well for you. x

    These are delicious, thank you. How long do they keep in the fridge. I made a big batch 3 weeks ago and just ate one! Tasted ok??

    • I think that would be fine, it is all long life ingredients. I am glad you enjoyed them.

    Hi there, I tried these and the muggins and I’m not sure if it is my microwave but I can’t get them to go all nice and cracked looking on top? Any suggestions?

    • Hmm, I have no idea why that is happening. Maybe give it a bit of extra time?

  • Alison Borgas

    I’m curious – why did you bake these?

  • Lornaworks

    You had me until you mentioned microwave but then you gave the baking option so I’m happy again.

    I only have normal dates, I usually soak in a little hot water first when I make other bliss balls, what is the equivalent weight of the medjoola dates in this recipe?

  • Hi Bianca, These are looking very delicious with great combination of ingredients…Thanks for this recipe 🙂
