Paleo Caramel Brownies

Paleo Caramel Brownies are a fun and festive treat. Serve these gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free brownies at a holiday party or if you are a crossfitter, after your WOD, as a little recovery treat.

I’ve worked on this heavenly caramel chocolate dessert for the past couple of months, testing the caramel sauce and chocolate ganache recipes numerous times until they were perfected. That was only the start though. After that I worked on pairing these special dairy-free toppings with various brownie recipes until I decided upon the one below.

I hope you enjoy these gluten-free brownies as much as my boys and their friends do!

My son’s friend Kurt told us that these were the best brownies he’d ever had and that they did not taste like they were gluten-free.

  1. Where is the ingredient list for the Paleo Caramel Brownies on this recipe? It does not show any ingredients nor measurements of ingredients or directions on this page.

  2. I made these yesterday as a Valentine’s day treat; I think they’re fantastic! I love that they are not too sweet, but moist & rich. (I used approx 3/4 cup of cocoa & they are still very chocolatey!) My boyfriend, who eats ‘normal’ baked goods like chocolate muffins on a regular basis, thought they tasted too ‘earthy’, but I am a fan & will absolutely make them again when I am craving a decadent treat, or for a special occasion for a Paleo or GF friend. In addition to topping with melted dark chocolate (70%), I also sprinkled crumbled walnuts on top. Super yum!

  3. Hi Elana,

    What type or brand of coconut sugar do you use for the caramel sauce? I used Madhava coconut sugar, I’m wondering if because the sugar is dark if that is why the sauce is dark rather than a caramel color. Super excited to taste them and so is my hubby who is still very much on the fence about the paleo lifestyle.

    Thank you!

    • Hey there,

      I noticed over the 10 minutes of simmering that the flavour darkened and also got more rich. I really enjoyed noticing the transformation! I’m located in Canada and went to my local bulk barn and used Organic Coconut Palm Sugar. It’s not dark, more of a medium brown.

      Hope this helps!

  4. These were soooo amazing. I made them for my husband yesterday for Valentine’s Day and we devoured them! I used kerrygold unsalted butter in place of the shortening and it turned out perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

  5. Made these for our Valentine couples dinner for 8 and it was WONDERFUL. Everyone raved about them….so will be making these again

  6. My friend made these tonight to share and they truly were amazing. I have to totally confess I ate a few, and wanted more! YUMMMMM!

  7. Oh you do woderful things & I am sure they are every bit as good as they look & sound & more.
    I know it would be just to much to ask for them to be Stevia sweetened only(I can’t handle any fruit or other sweetener).
    But keep up the fantastic work, Thank You!
