Vegan Caramel Brownie

Vegan Caramel Brownie

These brownies are almost raw and very simple to make! Rich, dense and super satisfying!

The base of these brownies are inspired by the no bake brownies from minimalist baker. I have less than half of the amount of dates in my recipe due to the very sweet caramel frosting, plus I also don't like my sweets as sweet anymore.

Vegan Caramel Brownie

3 simple steps. Blend the no bake brownie ingredients in a food processor. Put some whole walnuts on top. Mix together the caramel ingresients and spread out evenly.

Ingredients

No-bake brownies

  • 1 cup raw walnuts + 15 extra to add in whole for crunch
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cups fresh dates, pitted
  • 0,5 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Caramel topping

  • 1 cup vegan dulce de leche
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp almondbutter
  • 2 tbsp agave (optional)
  • pinch salt

Directions

  1. Combine all brownie ingredients except the dates in a food processor. Process until finely ground. Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. (or 2-3 at the time if you don't have a feed tube) You should end up with mix that appears like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates). It may seem dry at first, but don’t add any water!!
  2. Press The brownie mixture into a lined cake pan or mold.
  3. Add some whole walnuts on top of the brownie.
  4. Use a small bowl to whisk together the ingredients for the caramel. Spred on top of the brownie evenly.
  5. Put in fridge or freezer until ready to serve.
  6. Store in an airtight container.

Haha, I've been writing about my new "sugar free life" and you might wonder how this fits into the picture? :P As a matter of fact, I do enjoy decadence occasionally, and this seemingly sweet recipe only has 1 banana to sweeten the whole batch and then some berries for the topping. Of course you can top you pancakes with pretty much anything! And if you're like me and can't get enough of chocolate, why not top them with even more chocolate! :P

The caramel is a blend of dates, nut butter and tahini. If you want to make it nut free, then simple use the double amount of tahini instead of the nut butter or exchange the nut butter for any other seed butter. The taste of the caramel will vary due to what type of nut butter or seed butter you'll use, but will still taste delicious! My favorite combo is white tahini and roasted almond butter, that makes the caramel really delicious and with the exact right amount of nutty flavour...

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the salted caramel by blending all ingredients in a food processor. (Don't forget to remove the seeds from the dates)

  3. Make the raw chocolate sauce by blending or simply mixing the syrup with the raw cacao.
  4. Assemble the smoothies by dividing the caramel in two medium large glasses. Then pour the chocolate sauce on the inside of the glass. Pour the smoothie in the glass and use a straw or a spoon to create a nice swirl on the inside of the glass.

The raw chocolate sauce is a nice addition to this already very chocolatey smoothie. But you can also skip it as well as go all in with it. Drizzle it on top and let it fall down the edges of the glass to make it look absolutely over the top! Haha, it can get really messy! Just so you know...

Raw vegan chocolate fudge in no time

This raw vegan fudge is the quickest fix for your afternoon chocolate cravings! Packed with good fat from almonds and raw cacao. Sweetened with dates and sprinkled with sea salt.

Raw vegan chocolate fudge recipe

Beat the afternoon slump with these decadently delicious chocolate fudges! Snacking is rarely healthy. And let's not kid ourselves, these treats are high in both fruit sugar, fat and calories. Good news though is that they are way better than the regular store bought stuff that you're probably already eating. Another good thing about them is that since they're packed with almonds (peanuts or tahini) they're filled with nutrients and good fat that will leave you full longer.
