Remember my last post? 3-Ingredient Caramel Sauce? Well, let me just tell you, I have found its perfect match! There is nothing more delicious in this world than what I am about to share with you today. Please give a warm welcome to my special “Brownies with Caramel and Toasted Coconut Flakes”! These little guys will make your mouth water; once you try them, you will keep asking for another bite...and another...and another. You get my message, these are ridiculously addictive! Ask my mother-in-law. She was delighted by this treat and ate it as slowly as she possibly could. How cute is that!?

So, if you have a birthday party, a get together or a family dinner, you should totally give these Brownies with Caramel & Toasted Coconut Flakes a try. They will keep you guests happy (guarantee!) and you’ll look like a pro. ;)

Tools You’ll Need:

  •        8x8" baking pan
  •        Mixing bowls (2)
  •        Measuring spoons
  •        Spatula
  •        Whisk
  •        Small Skillet
  •        Wooden Spoon

Ingredients:

  •        2 ½ cups almond flour
  •        ¼ cup cocoa powder
  •        1 teaspoon baking soda
  •        ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  •        2 eggs (include yolk)
  •        ½ cup organic maple syrup
  •        1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
  •        ½ cup roasted macadamia nuts (no salt added)
  •        ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  •        ¼ cup organic dried cherries (optional)
  •        ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (for topping)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl and using your spatula, mix dry ingredients together: almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl and using your whisk, whisk eggs. Add maple syrup and coconut oil to your already whisked eggs; make sure these ingredients are well incorporated.
  4. Add wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and, using your spatula, mix well.
  5. Fold in macadamia nuts, chocolate chips and dried cherries (if you decided to sue these) to the mixture.
  6. Pour mixture into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. While your brownies are baking, prepare the 3-Ingredient Caramel Sauce and toast your coconut flakes (to toast flakes: place small skillet under medium heat and add coconut flakes; using a wooden spoon, move the flakes around to prevent them from burning; coconut flakes are done toasting as soon as their edges start to brown).
  8. After 25-30 minutes have passed, remove brownies from oven and let cool.
  9. Place brownies in refrigerator for 1 hour (having the brownies cool makes it way easier to slice).
  10. Top brownies with 3-Ingredient Caramel Sauce and toasted coconut flakes.
  11. Using a knife, divide the brownie into 9 slices (making two cuts horizontally and two cuts vertically).
  12. Serve and LOVE life!
