Salted Caramel Brownies



Yes you have clicked on the right link, vegan salted caramel brownies. Cue. Drool. Ok now we've mopped up the puddle thats formed let me tell you why i decided to make these gooey incredibly delicious salted caramel brownies. The other month the lovely people over at pret a manager decided to make some of these only available in the veggie pret london. Needless to say I felt a little left out and a 6 hour drive to go get one was a little out the question. 

I made brownies on my last blog beautyandthebakes and decided to look up the ratios for what I had used for them as they'd turned out fudgey, my first attempt at these I added to much flour and left in the oven too long so they turned out too cake-like. Learning from this I came up with this recipe, its really easy to remember as well. 

The chickpea water is a great addition and makes the brownies incredibly fudgey, these brownies are by no means healthy but they don't contain any refined sugar and are absolutely decadent making them a wonderful treat. 

What you will need; 
1/3 cup coconut sugar 
1/3 cup maple syrup 
1/3 cup dark chocolate 
1/3 cup coconut oil 
1/3 almond flour 
2/3 cup plain flour (can use gluten free or 1/3 up buckwheat and 1/3 cup rice flour)
1/3 cacao powder 
2tbs ground flax seed 
1tsp vanilla 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp baking soda 
2/3 cup almond milk 
aquafaba water from a can of chickpeas 

For the caramel centre;
3tbs maple syrup 
1tbs almond milk 
1tbs cashew butter 
1/4 tsp sea salt (or more depending how salty you want them)

Preheat your oven to 180 fan next we are going to melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bowl over some boiling water. Once melted add in the maple syrup, coconut sugar and vanilla. Set to the side to cool a little. Next up we are going to whip up our aquafaba water from the chickpeas till it goes fluffy as if you were going to be making meringue. Once you have done that its time to assemble the brownies for the oven. 

Sieve your flours, baking powder, soda and cacao into the bowl. Next in add in your chocolate mixture that should have cooled by now. Then add in your milk a little a time before you add it all in fold in the whipped aquafaba. I then set mine aside and made the caramel. 

Mix all ingredients together for the caramel and place in a none stick pan and cook on high for a few minutes until it bubbles and thickens up. Remove then add half the brownie mixture (you may need to thin it out with the remaining milk i used the full 2/3cup ) to your baking pan and drop on the caramel. Spread the remaining brownie batter on top and place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. After 15 minutes check on them and insert a toothpick to see how gooey they will be i cooked mine for 18 minutes and they were nice and fudgey.
