No-bake Pistachio Brownies (2024)

No-bake Pistachio Brownies (1)

A super easy and decadent treat – these no-bake pistachio brownies are rich and chocolatey, but made with healthier ingredients!

A simple no-bake base packed with oats, cocoa, a little maple syrup to sweeten and a bit of coconut oil to bind everything together. The centre is made up of pistachio butter, whole pistachios and a little more coconut oil and maple syrup.

Pistachios are such an underrated nut. It’s by far my favourite nut. I do think it’s so underrated and under used in the west. Whereas in the Middle East where I grew up, it’s the most popular. They use it in so many desserts and even savoury dishes. But they’re mostly enjoyed on their own – salted and roasted in their shells. By the way, if you haven’t tried salted roasted pistachios, you need to drop whatever you’re doing and go get some from your local supermarket asap!

My no-bake desserts are generally the most popular recipes on the blog and the ones that usually get the best engagement on my socials. Not that I’m complaining, they’re my favourite too! I love making them, shooting them and eating them more than baked treats. They’re so much easier in general and are less likely to fail. They’re so much easier to adjust and change around too.

No-bake Pistachio Brownies

Make – 8


For the base
100g (3.5 oz) oat flour – plain oats blended into a fine flour in the food processor. Use gluten-free oats if necessary.
4 tbsp cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp pistachio butter
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp maple syrup

For the pistachio centre
100g (3.5 oz) pistachio butter
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp maple syrup
A pinch of salt
80g (2.8 oz) unsalted pistachios

For the topping
150g (5.3 oz) dark chocolate
1 tbsp coconut oil


Mix the base ingredients in a bowl, then transfer into a loaf tin (I use a 22×12 cm loaf tin) lined with baking paper. Press down using a spatula or the back of a spoon.
In another bowl, mix together the pistachio butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and salt until smooth. Fold in the pistachios, then smooth over the chocolate base. Freeze for 1-2 hours.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave or using the double boiler method.
Once the Pistachio centre has set, take out of the freezer and pour the melted chocolate on top. Allow the chocolate to set for a few minutes, then slice and enjoy!

    Omg pistachios are my favorite nut too!! As well as macadamia. They are prob the only nut I usually eat roasted and salted by itself. I grew up eating them with my mom where we’d break the shell in half and pull out the nut and eat it (I’m sure you know what I’m saying lol) but I’ve always loved them. I’ll have to make this!!

      Hi 🙂 You can make your own by blending raw or roasted pistachios in a powerful blender or food processor until smooth.

      Hi Analia 🙂 You can try something like almond flour, but I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t say for sure how it will turn out or how much to use.

    Where should I keep it after preparation? Fridge or freezer?

      They’re best stored in the fridge in an air-tight container 🙂
