We all know that hazelnuts and chocolate are match-made-in-heaven, right? Well, at least that’s what I feel. So there’s no reason needed to make this Hazelnut Chocolate Brownies. Plus, they are DELICIOUS.

OK, I’m going to tell you another exciting thing about these No-Bake Hazelnut Chocolate Brownies. They also got a layer of chocolate ganache on top! (I hope you are excited as I do when hearing about this.)

I bet you could tell that by seeing the photos here. Even that’s the case, I still want to emphasize that because I really feel that these brownies couldn’t be THAT delicious without the ganache on top.

And if you know me well, you know that I wouldn’t let the topping look “blank” before snapping a picture. So here we got A LOT of beautiful hazelnuts in sight as well. (Yeah~)

They look quite decadent. To some degree, they are full of nuts. But don’t go nuts yet because they are full of REAL foods. Even they contain sugar or fat or many things that somehow got bad reputations nowadays, I don’t care, as long as each bite makes me smile.

BTW, I’m not pushing any “clean-eating” diet (aka orthorexia). I just want to bring up this to let you know that desserts are not in the “forbidden” category in any situation. I enjoy them every single day because I know I want them (now who didn’t know I’m a sweet tooth?) and they make me feel satisfied and happy. That’s all I need.

I also add a small handful of cacao nibs to add a different texture, which is totally optional. But if you got them at hand, why not?

The brownie base got a solid “bite” texture, which I love. And the chocolate ganache topping is creamy and smooth to keep a great balance with the nutty base. Hazelnut in each bite is definitely a plus!

Author: Barrel Leaf


  • 60 g pitted dates 去籽椰棗乾, packed ⅓ cup
  • 50 g (⅓ cup) almonds 杏仁
  • 60 g (⅓ cup) hazelnuts 榛果, + 15 g for topping, roughly chopped *
  • 1 tsp ground chia seeds 奇亞籽粉
  • 4 Tbsp cacao powder 生可可粉
  • A pinch of salt 鹽
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract 純香草精
  • ½-1 Tbsp drinking water 飲用水


  • 5 Tbsp full-fat coconut milk 全脂椰奶, refrigerate ahead would be quicker
  • 1.5 Tbsp maple syrup 楓糖漿
  • A pinch of salt 鹽
  • 5 Tbsp cacao powder 生可可粉
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract 純香草精
  • A handful of cacao nibs 可可碎豆, or dark chocolate chips, optional


To make the brownies

  • Start by adding the pitted dates to a food processor to chop finely.
  • Then add other ingredients and continue to chop until the mixture comes together. Add a dash of water to help binding if needed.
  • Grab an 8-inch long loaf pan. Line it with parchment paper.
  • Transfer the brownie mixture to the pan. Press it down firmly and evenly. Place it into the freezer while we make the ganache.

To make the ganache

  • In a small bowl, add the coconut milk, maple syrup, salt, cacao powder, and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
  • Grab the loaf from the freezer. Pour the ganache mixture on top of the brownie base. If you refrigerate your coconut milk ahead as I do, the mixture should be a bit thick already. If not, then freeze it for 5 minutes.
  • Then sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts and cacao nibs (if you have) on top. Return to the freezer for about 15-20 minutes to let it get firm.
  • Remove from the freeze, chop into the size you like, and enjoy!



  • I like to toaste my hazelnuts beforehand to bring out more flavor from them. You could use raw if you like, but I highly recommend to bake them at 150 C / 300 F for 10-15 minutes to let their amazing nutty flavor comes out.
