2 Ingredient No Bake Brownies (No Flour, Eggs, or Oil)

These incredibly fudgy chocolate brownies don’t require any baking. They are just 2 ingredients and don’t need any flour, eggs, or oil. They are very rich and are sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

These brownies are a fun treat. They are easy to make and very chocolatey. I love that they don’t require any baking, which is especially good with the weather starting to warm up.

Ingredients

  • Semisweet Chocolate
  • Banana Puree

Semisweet Chocolate: This recipe is made with semisweet chocolate. I used semisweet chocolate chips. You can also use semisweet chocolate bars. Whatever you choose, make sure you use dairy-free chocolate. Some chocolate has milk or milkfat added to it. If the chocolate has milk added to it, your brownies will not set.

Banana Puree: This recipe works best with very ripe bananas. The bananas are pureed until they have a smoothie consistency. Just mashing the bananas is not enough. You also do not want to use frozen bananas. Frozen bananas contain a lot of moisture and will cause the chocolate to seize. This recipe does not work with applesauce. If you need a substitute for bananas, you can try pumpkin puree but your brownies won’t be as sweet.

No Bake Brownie Texture

Because this is a no bake recipe, the brownies will not have the same texture as traditional brownies. The texture is similar to fudge, but softer. I still think of these as brownies because they are very rich, fudgy and chocolatey, like a brownie. However, they do not have any crumb to them because they are not baked. If you prefer a baked brownie texture, you can make my 2 Ingredient Banana Brownies which use the same ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (184 g) dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (118 g) banana puree

Instructions

  • Line an 8 x 4 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Add chocolate to a large mixing bowl and melt chocolate in the microwave or on the stove using the double boiler method. If using microwave, first heat at full power for 1 minute. Stir the chocolate with spatula. If it is not hot enough to completely melt all the chocolate, microwave the chocolate again for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
  • Working quickly, fold in the puree. Use your spatula to scrape the chocolate from the bottom of the bowl, moving it up and over the puree. Continue to fold until banana is completely incorporated into the chocolate and the mixture is uniform in color. Because the chocolate tends to stick to the bottom and sides of the bowl, you do want to make sure to scrape the bowl several times when folding in the banana puree.
  • Pour mixture into prepared baking pan. Place into fridge for 30-60 minutes or until set. Remove and cut into squares with a sharp knife. Store any uneaten brownies in the fridge.

Notes

  • When melting chocolate in the microwave, you don't want to overcook it. After the first minute, only heat in 30 second intervals as needed until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  • This recipe will only work with dairy-free chocolate. Look at the ingredient list and make sure milk or milkfat is not listed as an ingredient. Chocolate that contains milk will not set. For example, Nestle chocolate chips contain milk and will not work. This recipe will also not work with white chocolate. I used Kirkland semisweet chocolate chips (this is the Costco brand). Costco actually has two versions of Kirkland semisweet chocolate chips. The white bag is the one that does not contain milk. 
  • These brownies do not have a classic brownie crumb. See post for details on what to expect for the brownie texture.
  • Use ripe or very ripe bananas. Very ripe bananas will be easier to puree. You can puree in a food processor or blender. This recipe will not work with previously frozen bananas.
  • The banana puree is what prevents the chocolate from solidifying again which is why you need to make sure it is completely incorporated into the chocolate.
  • The recipe will work a 9 x 5 inch pan but the brownies will be very thin. You can also double the recipe and pour the batter into an 8 x 8 inch pan (or 9 x 9 but your brownies will be thinner).

  1. Is there anything else I can use besides banana or pumpkin?

  2. I love the way these turned out, but they weren’t what I expected! Even though I read the full write-up, they were much denser than I thought. I ended up cutting them in small squares and calling them chocolate fudge, not brownies. Will definitely make again, but I wish they were called fudge on the recipe, as I think it would better manage expectations.

    Side note, I tasted the batter and it was DISGUSTING – way too sweet and heavy banana taste…but the finished product was soooo good – rich and decadent! So my advice is to not taste the batter, or if you do, don’t let it discourage you!

    • As mentioned in the post, the texture is not the same as a traditional brownie – it’s like a soft fudge. So it sounds like they turned out great for you!

  3. Thank u. These sound good. I’m gonna half to try these soon.

  4. LOVED the taste but I wasn’t able to cut them neatly out of the pan. They were kind of like mushy fudge but delicious. Don’t know what I did wrong. Definitely had the correct kind of chocolate and banana was not frozen. Was trying for a vegan item for my daughter.

    • Did you semi-sweet chocolate? Other types don’t work as well. We’re glad you enjoyed them!

  5. nutrition.. serving 1 browne.. – how many grams??

    • I don’t have gram measurements for a serving. The recipe card indicates how many servings this recipe makes (8 brownies) and the nutrition provided is for one serving. You can weigh your brownies and then divide by 8 to figure out the gram measurement for one serving.

  6. Good recipe

  7. Awesome

  8. I made these and they were very tasty! Thanks for the recipe. I was wondering if you played with the banana to chocolate ratio when developing this deliciously fudgy concoction? If one wants more banana taste, could one use equal parts melted chocolate and banana puree? Would it even set? (I accidentally posted this comment under your baked version of the recipe. Ooops! I did not bake them). Have you tried different ratios of melted chocolate to banana puree in either version of the recipe? Does half and half work in either case?

    • Hi, I did play around with different ratios. If you add more banana they won’t set. I also tried with less banana and it left some streaks of chocolate that hardened because there wasn’t enough banana mixed in.

  9. Always delicious yummies for the tummies !!

  10. Yummy

  11. I like the way you anticipate mistakes or substitutions and explain in detail every step and how it could go wrong. As I was reading I was thinking of using a Hershey bar.
    I will make this soon.

  12. That sounds amazing, but that’s fudge not brownies lol all the same thanks for the awesome recipe!

    • Fudge is made with completely different ingredients. As mentioned in the post, the texture is similar to fudge but softer.

  13. Great Recipes!!

  21. Hi Kirbie,
    I am looking for a receipe for almond cookies with no egg , no butter . Can you share with me if you have one?

  22. How long do these keep, and what’s the best way to store them?
