YES! You read that right: these No Bake Cookie Dough Brownies are entirely no-bake! The oven isn’t turned on ONCE. The fudgy date brownie base, the gooey sugar free cookie dough center and the rich chocolate and peanut butter topping is all prepped and prepared with a food processor, microwave and your fridge + freezer!

If you are new to my page or just stopping by, I have a fun weekly segment called Flourless Fridays. Every Friday, I create + share a new recipe that, yes, you guessed it… doesn’t require any flour. This is both challenging and fun! I love to see what ways I can make a classic flour recipe, flourless!

No bake cookie dough brownie bars are one of my favorite desserts to make. For one, anything no bake is a win in my book. Especially during the Summer when the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven! Secondly, they’re so easy to make. It still blows my mind that they’re super fudgy and rich but entirely no-bake and have NO ADDED SUGAR.

These No Bake Cookie Dough Brownie Bars are SO EASY to make. You will need a few kitchen gadgets, supplies and ingredients and you’ll be on your way!

Let’s talk layers

Okay, let’s talk about these three layers of chocolatey goodness.

Layer one- Brownie fudge. This layer is composed of dates, almonds, flax seed meal, chocolate protein and peanut butter. Dates are natures candy in my book. They are so sweet and make for the perfect ingredient to add to desserts instead of processed sugar!

Layer two- Chickpea cookie dough. If you’ve been around for awhile, you know that chickpea cookie dough is one of my favorite desserts. It’s simple, light and nutritious and you would never guess that it is made from beans! This layer is made up of chickpeas, dates, peanut butter, vanilla and of course, chocolate chips.

Layer three- Peanut Butter chocolate ganache– Now this layer might be my favorite combo. Chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in heaven and this recipe is no different. Simply melt dark chocolate (or your favorite chocolate) with peanut butter and you will get the most delicious topping for any dessert!

Kitchen tools needed to make cookie dough brownie bars

You will need a few tools for make these bars from scratch. I used my food processor, but if you have a blender, you can use that as well!

  • Food processor OR Blender
  • Loaf pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Rubber spatula

Substitutions

If you have a nut allergy, you can simply change the peanut butter for any seed butter and it will work just the same.

Instead of using chocolate protein- use cacao powder instead!
