No Bake, Vegan, and Gluten Free: Flax Seed Brownies/Fudge/Burfi

How to Make No-Bake, Vegan, and Gluten-Free: Flax Seed Brownies/Fudge/Burfi
Hello Foodies,
          How do you incorporate these miraculous flax seeds into your daily healthy diet plan? Let

me introduce you to my way to add healthy flax seeds into the daily diet plan. These no-bake brownies or we can say it healthy bars are packed with macro and micronutrients, taste, flavor and need just 3 ingredients! These healthy brownies have no eggs, no butter, no oil, no grain flour, no white sugar. So you can eat them guilt-free and carve your sweet cravings.


The combination of jaggery, flaxseed, sesame seeds and garnished with sliced almonds
yields rich, vegan and delicious treats to satisfy the sweet tooth. I have used sliced almonds to garnish and give it a rich look. You can use whatever nut you like such as pistachios, cashews or walnuts. 

         Because of earthy or little bit bitter taste of flaxseeds, we rarely eat flaxseeds. So the addition of jaggery makes the big difference in the taste, it is hard to stop eating them. These are much easier and so much healthier and addictive than usually baked brownies. They also work great as a meal prep snack option to keep in an airtight container to snack on throughout the week or two. They are dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and free of white sugar, so they are filling, but they indeed aren't low in sugar. However, they are still a healthy and guilt-free treat!
If you follow my blog, then you know I have used jaggery in my dessert recipes, and lots of my followers asked me, what is jaggery?
So here it is, jaggery is made by evaporating the water from cane sugar juice without separation of molasses. It is traditional non-centrifugal cane sugar. It can be in the form of a block, liquid or granules and color can vary from golden brown to dark brown. Jaggery contains more nutrients than refined or white sugar, because of its molasses content, molasses adds a small amount of micronutrients. Jaggery contains vitamins and minerals in a small amount. Jaggery is versatile, it's often mixed with peanuts, coconuts, to prepare delicious and guilt-free puddings, cakes and desserts. Jaggery helps to improve digestive health, prevent anemia and enhance immune function if consumed in moderation.

  • Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes on low to medium flame and boil till the syrup thickens.

    using a rolling pin or spatula.

  • After 30 minutes separate the bars and they are ready to munch on. Enjoy!!!

My Take:

  • They are edible for 3-4 weeks, just let them cool and keep it in an airtight container.
  • You can use ghee instead of coconut oil to grease wax paper.
  • You can add veg.oil 1 Tsp while preparing jaggery syrup, but don't use ghee(ghee make jaggery hard).
  • Instead of almonds, you can use any nuts of your choice, or you can skip adding nut too.
