Chocolate caramel brownie

I keep a bowl of chocolates on my desk for my fellow co-workers and visitors to my office because sometimes in the middle of the day you just need a little something chocolatey and sweet. But what’s a gal to do if that craving comes more often than she’d like, and it starts to show? Enter the nutritious, guilt-free, satisfyingly fudgy chocolate caramel brownie.

Made with 100% whole wheat flour, sweetened with honey, and with only 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the whole pan, you can have more than just a bite of these brownies with no guilt.

Double up on the recipe for a rainy day – these freeze and defrost beautifully.

  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup DAGOBA cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Caramel:

  • 1/2 cup date syrup*


Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8” round baking pan with foil, and spray with non-stick coating.

Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Pour into prepared pan.

Put date syrup into a small ziploc bag and snip the corner. Squeeze out in a swirl over brownies, and then use a knife to marble.

Bake for 28 - 30 minutes, or until center is set.

*Make your own date syrup by blending 1 cup pitted dates with 1 cup hot water until smooth. Date syrup lasts in the refrigerator for at least a week, and can be used as a sweetener in many baked goods, hot drinks, or subbed for caramel sauce over ice cream or baked fruit.
