Healthy Cookie Dough Date Caramel Brownies

Healthy Cookie Dough Date Caramel Brownies

 

 

Uber fudgy brownies made using whole food ingredients, protein powder and then topped with date caramel and healthy protein packed cookie dough!


 

 

I was talking to a friend the other day and it got me thinking about sweets and how I haven’t gone a day without dessert in, I can’t even remember how long. My sweet tooth really has no bounds. Thank goodness for all of my healthy alternative desserts. 🙂

 

 

I’m still having a tough time trying to come up with a healthy version of caramel so if you guys have any recipes, please send them my way. For now, a simple date caramel tastes amazing!

 

 

I always use PEScience Select protein powders because the quality is truly incomparable especially when it comes to baking. I’ve tried many brands on the market and PEScience is one of the few that won’t leave your baked goods tasting bland or chewy.

 

I used Chocolate Frosted Cupcake flavor for the brownie layer and Gourmet Vanilla flavor for the cookie dough layer. You can get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout at pescience.com

Healthy Cookie Dough Date Caramel Brownies

Extra Fudgy Chocolate Brownies Layered with Date Caramel and Topped with Healthy Protein Packed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Ingredients

    Brownie Layer
  • 1/2 c brown rice flour
  • 1/2 c almond flour
  • 32g protein powder (I used PEScience Chocolate Frosted Cupcake 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Truvia or coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
    Date Caramel
  • 6 medjool dates
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/4 c water
    Cookie Dough Layer
  • 3/4 c brown rice flour
  • 48g vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 3 tbsp Trivia or granulated sweetener of choice
  • 3 tbsp light butter, room temperature
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and prepare a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place all dry brownie layer ingredients into a bowl and mix until combined. Pour your dry ingredients into a mixer and add remaining ingredients and beat until combined and you have worked out all clumps. The batter will be very thick.
  3. Press brownie batter evenly into the bottom of the loaf pan. Bake for 8 minutes and let cool.
  4. While the brownie layer is cooling, place all date caramel ingredients into a food processor until smooth. Spread date caramel over brownie layer.
  5. Place all dry cookie dough ingredients into a mixer. Add room temperature butter and 3 tablespoons water. Mix using a paddle attachment until a dough forms. If dough is too thick to spread, add another tablespoon of water. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Spread cookie dough layer over caramel layer using a rubber spatula. Wetting the rubber spatula first will help to prevent sticking.
  7. Cover and place in the freezer for 2 hours before cutting into 10 pieces and serving.
