No Bake Brownie Balls {vegan, gluten free, dairy free)

No Bake Brownie Balls {vegan, gluten free}

So I decided to create a NEW version of my very popular No Bake Brownie Bites! You guys seem to love these quick, easy, no bake recipes so I thought I’d include an even gooier, more delicious version. These vegan and gluten free No Bake Brownie Balls are my new favourite sweet snack!

I have been loving these little brownie balls as a mid morning or afternoon sweet treat, ESPECIALLY heated up. You heard me.

Simply pop a brownie ball in your microwave for 15-20 seconds, take a bite, and thank me later. They literally taste like a gooey, delicious dessert! Absolute heaven.

Made with the simplest ingredients, these No Bake Brownie Balls will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth, especially if you’re a chocolate lover like myself! They’re naturally plant based and totally gluten free.

The difference with these and my other Brownie Bites is that these use Coconut Flour, which is AMAZING in no-bake treats (however I don’t recommend it for baked goods!) The coconut flour adds the best fudgy texture, as well as being high in fibre, protein and healthy fats. A great ingredient to have in!

(makes around 10 Brownie Balls)

  • 3/4 cup runny peanut butter/nut butter of choice
  • 4-5 tbsp maple syrup/liquid sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp vegan/dark chocolate chips


  1. Whisk together the nut butter and maple syrup in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder and coconut flour and mix again.
  3. Fold in the dark chocolate chips. If at this point the mixture is too sticky to touch, cover and place in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up!
  4. Scoop out tablespoons of the mixture and roll into balls with your hands. Leave in the fridge for about half an hour to set. Store in an airtight container for unto 2 weeks. Enjoy! I like to pop it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds so it turns into a fudgy, melty, chocolatey dessert!

  1. Is there a substitute you could recommend for the maple syrup that has less sugar? I’m on a low sugar diet, but these look delicious. I would love to try to modify them to fit my diet. Thanks!

  2. These sound wonderful! Is there any coconut flavor in coconut flour! My dairy and egg allergic friend unfortunately really dislikes the taste of coconut.

    1. Yes! By that I just mean peanut butter that isn’t really thick. Pip and Nut for example is a brand of peanut butter which is quite thin. If you can only find thick peanut butter you may just need a little more liquid x

    1. I’m assuming you mean can you sub the coconut flour for almond? I haven’t actually tried that myself so I couldn’t say, but you can use this recipe which uses oat flour! xx
