Ingredients

Brownie Cups

  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil refined
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 cup plant-based milk I use coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds soak in milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder see what I use above in post
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips I use dairy-free
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Vegan Caramel sauce

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut cream from a can of coconut milk
  • 1/8 tsp pink salt or sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Brownie Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Grease 10 regular-size muffin tins. (I brush with refined coconut oil)
  • If coconut oil isn't liquid, melt in a saucepan.
  • Pour milk into a cup, stir in chia seeds and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, cacao powder, and baking powder.
  • With a wooden spoon mix in milk/chia mix, melted oil, vanilla, and chocolate chips.
  • When all the ingredients are incorporated well, spoon brownie mix into muffin tins to about 3/4 way full.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until knife inserted comes in clean.
  • After you pull them out of the oven and they are still warm take a cup with a small bottom or the back side of another muffin pan and press down lightly to make little cups (like pictured above)

Vegan Caramel Sauce

  • In a small saucepan measure in maple syrup and heat over medium heat.
  • Whisk in coconut cream, salt, and vanilla.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Allow it to simmer 5-7 minutes. It will get very bubbly and start to look thicker.
  • Turn off heat and let it set to thicken up a bit.
  • Fill cups with caramel sauce and serve! (For topping ideas look above in post)
