Coconut Caramel Brownie Bites


Although I’m not usually a fan of caramel, my husband is. So, on a recent Saturday night, after many previous failed attempts, I came up with this recipe for him to nibble on. They are great, bite sized bursts of flavor that hopefully you can make for someone you love.


1 C almond meal
4 tsbp unsweetened, organic chocolate bar
3 eggs
1/4 C coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 C maple sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 C maple sugar
1/4 C coconut milk
4 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt

4 tsbp unsweetened, organic chocolate bar
6 tbsp maple sugar
pinch salt
3 tbsp warm water
4 tbsp shredded coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • In a microwave safe container (I like to use a mug), warm the coconut oil and chocolate for 30 seconds
  • With a fork, stir the chocolate and oil and then microwave for another 30 seconds then set aside
  • In a food processor, pulse the almond meal, eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda salt, maple sugar and cinnamon from the brownie ingredients
  • Add in the warm chocolate and pulse everything until the batter is well combined and smooth then set aside
  • In a sauce pan on medium-medium low heat add in the caramel ingredients: maple sugar, coconut milk, ghee, vanilla extract and salt and let it cook for ~5 minutes while constantly stirring
  • Pour the chocolate brownie batter into a greased loaf pan
  • Pour the caramel over the brownie batter
  • Sprinkle some of the shredded coconut on the caramel
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • While the brownies are baking, in a microwave safe container (you can reuse the one you used for the brownies),  warm the chocolate and maple sugar for the topping for 30 seconds
  • Take the chocolate out of the microwave and add the warm water while stirring
  • Take the brownies out of the oven and let them cool
  • Cut the brownie bites into squares and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the top
  • Quickly sprinkle the shredded coconut over the chocolate while it is still wet to ensure it sticks
  • Enjoy immediately!
