Ingredients

Units Scale

Brownies

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Nougat

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Caramel

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped peanuts, roasted and unsalted

Chocolate

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Create brownies: Add brownie ingredients to a large bowl. Mix together until the ingredients are evenly combined. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. Using clean hands, firmly press the brownie dough against the bottom of the pan.
  2. Create nougat: Add nougat ingredients to a bowl. Mix together until the ingredients are evenly combined. Transfer nougat to the baking dish. Firmly press the nougat across the brownie layer.
  3. Create caramel: Add peanut butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract to a bowl. Whisk together for 3-5 minutes, until the ingredients combine and begin to thicken. Stir in the chopped peanuts afterwards. Pour caramel over the nougat and spread it across the dish in an even layer. Store in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to set the caramel layer.
  4. Create chocolate: Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between, until combined. Pour melted chocolate over the caramel layer, and immediately spread it across the pan. (Be sure to work quickly! Since the caramel is cold, the chocolate will harden.) After, store in the freezer or refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to set.
  5. Slice: Slice the brownies into 16 squares. If desired, sprinkle flaky sea salt on top. Enjoy! 

Notes

  • Peanut butter: I recommend using a thick no-stir peanut butter instead of a runny natural peanut butter for the best results
  • Coconut oil: Be sure to use refined coconut oil if you don’t want any coconut flavor.
  • Peanuts: I recommend using roasted unsalted peanuts. If yours are already salted, scale back the amount of salt in the brownies to just a pinch.
  • How to slice brownies: Read full blog post for instructions on how to make clean cut slices.¬†
  • Storage: Keep inside the refrigerator for up to 1 week or inside the freezer for up to 3 months.
