Ingredients

Brownie Cups

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Salted Caramel

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Additional coarse salt for garnishing

Instructions

Brownie Cups

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and chocolate until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Whisk in melted chocolate mixture until smooth. Slowly fold in flour, cocoa, and salt until batter is just combined.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full of batter and bake brownies at 350F 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs sticking to it. Use the end of a wooden spoon to immediately indent the middle of brownie cups. Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire cooling rack. Then remove from pan and set aside.

Salted Caramel

  • Make the caramel: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in sugar and agave and bring caramel to a boil until a deep golden brown. Remove from heat and whisk in salt and baking soda. 
  • Fill cooled brownie cups with warm salted caramel and garnish with additional coarse salt. Enjoy!
