These Rainbow No Bake Brownies are perfect Vegan and Gluten Free Desserts for getting your chocolate fix any night of the week.
GUYS. We are on a two week countdown until my birthday and this year I’m throwing a 90’s themed bash to celebrate the best years of my life. Just kidding, my 20s and upcoming 30s seem pretty rad too, but in the 90s we had DUNKAROOS and GUSHERS. And since I’ve decided that anything rainbow tastes better, and also is totally appropriate to celebrate with, I’ve developed these bad ass vegan and gluten free Rainbow No Bake Brownies. Yes, you heard me right. I’m baking brownies (but the ones you actually want to eat.)
How to Make Rainbow No Bake Brownies
Guys, I can’t tell you how amazing these Rainbow No Bake Brownies are. Like, this is a recipe I’m going to make again and again and again, because it’s easy as pie, better for you, and can satisfy the sweet tooth of all of my vegan and gluten free friends.
First, we make the brownie base and it’s basically just a combination of sweet dates, almonds and cocoa powder. There’s no need to add extra sugar when they taste this good. I mix in a good handful of rainbow sprinkles for good measure before whipping up a simple ganache.
The ganache in these Rainbow No Bake Brownies is also easy. I just add dairy free chocolate to heated coconut milk, and drape it over my brownie base. Sprinkle it (generously) with rainbow sprinkles and let the whole thing set until you can’t stand it anymore. Trust me, you’ll be itching for a taste.
I recommend cutting these Rainbow No Bake Brownies into small squares because a little bit goes a long way. Despite all those healthy ingredients, they’re remarkably rich and satisfying. You can also freeze them so that you have a little something-something to get you through any tough day.

In a food processor, puree the dates until they reach a thick paste. Add in the almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil, salt, and vanilla. Process until well combined then mix in the sprinkles.
Line a 9" square baking dish with parchment paper and press it firmly into the bottom. Place in the fridge.
Meanwhile, heat the coconut milk in a saucepan over medium high until boiling. Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
Remove the brownie base and pour chocolate all over the brownies. Sprinkle liberally with sprinkles. Refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
