One bowl vegan desserts like these double dark chocolate salted caramel brownies are easy to make and paleo. These one bowl vegan brownies are made with two kinds of dark chocolate an topped with a dairy free salted caramel sauce. The perfect rich fudgy taste and texture! I think you’ll love the superfood cacao addition as well! YUM!
Oh hey there ONE BOWL VEGAN double dark chocolate salted caramel brownies. Paleo dark chocolate brownies with DOUBLE dark chocolate! Whoops, totally didn’t mean to make this week all about vegan and paleo recipes. I also didn’t mean for all of them to be “BOWL” recipes. But you know what? I’m going with. It’s like MAGICAL when that happens. Why? Because I feel so accomplished. I am kidding, kinda. But in all seriousness, I did make all of these paleo and vegan “comfort” food recipes when I was just coming off my surgery. I had to limit certain hard to digest foods for a few weeks post-op, yet I was still CRAVING real food, real healthy comfort food, like MAD. You get that right?
Hence these SUPER FOOD one bowl vegan brownies. Can brownies be super food? Uh, yes. Chocolate SUPER FOOD and SUPER Magical because they are made in one bowl and magically paleo friendly as well. Did I mention they also include two kinds of dark chocolate and a salted caramel sauce?
Look at that extra dark batter and saucy caramel goodness! SWOOOON! Whoa…. that’s some serious magician work. In my humble opinion.
I’d also like to thank Better Body Food Organic Cacao for the “secret trick” to these one bowl vegan double dark chocolate brownies. Yep, my secret it OUT!
Although, this secret is meant to be shared. Cause… you guys… this extra dark chocolate cacao powder is some seriously potent real food nourishment. I’m gonna get all nerdy and talk about it now. Mmmm k?
So what is Cacao? What is this dark chocolate magic? Besides it being SUPERFOOD that is.
Cacao is the purest form of chocolate. It comes from the cacao fruit tree where it makes cacao pods with beans. It is raw and has the highest source of antioxidants of all foods and the highest source of magnesium of all foods. Plus cacao contains an excellent source of fiber and protein. Cacao powder (or any form of cacao) is super rich in taste and basically the DARKEST of chocolate. Kinda perfect for October, right?
But what I love about this amazing chocolate is that is can turn a basic one bowl vegan brownie recipe into a decadent tasting (like flourless chocolate cake like) dessert.
Cocoa powder (spelled C-O-C-O-A) is very similar to cacao except cocoa undergoes a bit more heat during processing. But don’t worry, it’s still EXTREMELY healthy and loaded with antioxidants. Plus it’s naturally sugar free and great in baking as well! Like Hot Chocolate brownies.
So here’s where I justify this ONE BOWL vegan dark chocolate brownie recipe. If we put it all together with simple dairy free salted caramel sauce, it might not be a”sugar free” treat, but it will still be AHHHHMAZING and still SUPER MAGICAL. A delicious (and allergy friendly) brownie recipe you can make in a jiffy! Meaning it’s SNAPPY Sweet Meaning, it’s quick to make. Meaning, it’s healthy-ish. Meaning, you’re gonna wanna lick the bowl clean kind of paleo/vegan dessert. Haha, now that was a mouthful description.
Alright, grab a bowl and just a few ingredients from your pantry. It’s time to bake it up!
p.s I’m totally going to continue the ONE BOWL Baking! Next up, One Bowl Vegan Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread (V, GF, DF) from Beaming Baker! Care to join me?
Just a few notes: You will need the coconut oil to be a liquid. Once baked, set this pan in the fridge to “set” the brownies. You can make the caramel sauce when they are in the fridge.
If you don’t have cacao powder, just use cocoa powder, both great! Although you know I think everyone should try Better Body Foods cacao powder in addition to the cocoa. Extra extra dark chocolate is never a bad idea.
*Estimated* Nutrition per brownie and few tbsp caramel on top.
Ya, that’s one big tower of vegan/paleo chocolate salted caramel brownies ya’ll. I also used my coconut cream “whip” on top. Hey, go big or go home with superfoods, right? Haha!
This brownie was shared with non paleo and vegan peeps for testing. It passed with flying colors! That’s what I call….wait for it…. MAGICAL!
