Flourless Salted Caramel & Chocolate brownies – Paleo Worthy

These are a tried and tested favourite of mine. Healthy Chocolate Brownies. Stop it.

I had a Makeup job today with the beautiful Juli Grbac and one of my amazing friends (also a Makeup Artist) Madeline looked after Miss 2 1/2 today for me. I baked these to take to Madelines but forgot about them and left them in the car. Sorry Mads!

Normally I don’t add sugar but I tried adding 1/2 cup with this batch and I’m pleased to announce they are still amazing 😉

Ingredients

Brownies:

  • 1 1/2 can of kidney beans drained and then pureed
  • 2 eggs (or if you are out of eggs or want to Vegan this up read this-> Egg replacements)
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (or Cacao powder but Cocoa is the budget, slightly less Paleo version)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 Tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

Salted Caramel:

  • 1 cup dates soaked in Hot water and then drained and Pureed.

N.B. Medjool dates would be the ultimate but again, when on a household budget dried dates will work just fine. Remember to soak them before pureeing.

  • 1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Milk ( I try to make sure any coconut milk is Certified Organic which I can NEVER find in Coles)

Method

Brownies:

  • Mix all Brownie ingredients together except for the Kidney beans.
  • If you haven’t yet pureed the beans do that now and then add to the brownie mix
  • Pour half of the mixture into a greased baking tray or a loaf tin (you just don’t want them to be too tall when baked). Keep the remaining mixture aside to add over the top AFTER the Salted Caramel

Salted caramel:

  • If you haven’t pureed the dates yet do that now and add the Salt and Coconut Milk
  • Pour over the brownie mixture which should now be in the baking tray

Pour the remaining Brownie mixture over the Salted Caramel and bake. My oven is a very hot oven. I baked these at 100 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes. Better a low temp for longer than a high temp and burn it
