These brownies have half the butter and sugar than normal and also just require 1 bowl! We use our Coconut Sugar Caramel in the brownie batter as well as on top for added salty coconut caramel flavor.
Be sure the Coconut Sugar Caramel is at room temperature or even microwaved for 15 seconds. And the most important thing to keep in mind when making brownie batter is to not over-mix when adding the flour! You just want to mix until a silky smooth batter is formed, if over-mixed, the texture will be cakey rather than gooey.
We like to use instant espresso powder to further enhance the chocolate flavor but that step is completely optional. Just be sure to not use regular ground coffee as the results are not as tasty. PS – These work well with regular all-purpose or your favorite gluten-free flour mix.
all-purpose or gluten-free flour ( we like Bob’s Red Mill 1-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour)
unsweetened cocoa powder
instant espresso powder (optional)
semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees with a rack in the middle position and grease a 9-inch square baking pan with butter (or line with parchment paper).
Stir in the flour until just combined, careful not to over-mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared pan, spreading evenly to cover the entire surface, and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, drizzle with caramel and sea salt, and serve.
