I don’t know what to tell you other than I absolutely want to eat these as my last meal. They are sweet, salty, crunchy, chocolatey…and they are everything that is right with this world. These brownies will never let you down, they’ll never disappoint you, they won’t talk back or criticize, they won’t judge. So honestly, you don’t need a significant other if you have these. But if you already have one, then make these for that person and they will marry you. That’s how I tricked my man into booking a trip to Jamaica with me. JOKES ON HIM!
I have a bit of writer’s block going on lately. I honestly think it’s because of this daylight savings time change. I felt like I had a 2 days hangover. It didn’t help that I did have a slight hangover on Sunday from my bachelorette party, but that’s besides the point. My question is, because I know nothing about Daylight Savings, is why do we have to do it? I’m pretty sure 4 states have decided to not do it, so why are we still on that train? I’ve heard because of the earths rotation, I’ve heard we started it because the farmers needed light to work later, and since I’m too lazy to google it myself, I’m stuck wondering why we still do it. Ugh, I’m one of those people I hate. Use google, Juli. Don’t be that guy. That guy is the worst.
How do you feel about this US citizen getting 15 years hard labor for trying to steal a flag in North Korea? How bad does his life suck now? I mean…who tries to steal stuff in the worst place to visit? That seems like a very silly choice.
See how much writer’s block I have? Enough to talk about that. I might run out of things to say so much that I talk about the election. NOOOOOOOOO. Just kidding, in 6 years of writing my blog, I’ve never talked about politics. That’s the perfect way to have no friends.
I want to be this guy’s best friend. Why didn’t I create this off my instagram comments? What an effing genius. I wonder how much time he spends searching for dumb things people have said. What a pioneer. Whatever that means.
Guess what I get to do today? I get to meet with the cutest fashion blogger in Colorado! Alena from Modaprints has pretty much the cutest style I’ve ever seen! And I’m so pumped because the only time I really get to hang out with other people who have the same job as me is when I’m in Austin, TX for PaleoFX. So this will be so fun to get to know someone in Denver! Speaking of PaleoFX, is anyone going? I’ll be going this year, just booked my flight and house the other day! I won’t be speaking or doing anything like that, but I’ll definitely be found in every different restaurant stuffing my face. Who’s joining me?!
- Yield: 16 1x
- 1 box gluten free brownie mix
- 4oz goat milk caramel
- 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup chocolate chips, melted
- couple pinches of flake or coarse sea salt
- Make brownies. Let brownies cool completely.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spread shredded coconut on a baking sheet then bake for 5-8 minutes, until browned. Remove and let cool. In a large bowl, mix together all of the caramel and coconut until completely combine. Pour mixture on top of brownies and push down with a rubber spatula.
- Melt chocolate then use a spoon to cascade, yes I said cascade, the chocolate across the coconut caramel topping. Any design will do.
- Lastly, sprinkle a couple pinches of flake salt on top of the brownies, as much or as little as you like. But remember that these brownies totally deserve the salt, it brings the flavor to a whole new level!
- Store in fridge or freezer!

Oh snap! That was sneaky ????. One of the ingredients is a recipe from your cookbook. Now I have to buy it! I’ve been following you for quite a while, so buying your cookbook is long overdue. I enjoyed this blog post (especially the YouTube link, that guy gets me).
Ha! That video is hilarious. People say the dumbest shit. Excited you are coming to Paleofx. It was cool to meet and hang out with you last year (I work for Cassy). One of the best parts about coming to Austin is all the good food!
I will not be accomplishing anything else the rest of the day. This guy’s videos are hilarious!
These look insane! I need to make these the second I get home from work WOW!
I saw that kid that’s going to jail in North Korea on the Today show today making a plea to the judge or court or whatever and it absolutely broke my heart. I literally felt sick to my stomach for that kid. Yeah, stealing a flag was a stupid thing to do…but I have done WAY stupider things in college and nothing happened to me. I hope someone is trying like hell to get this kid out.
Sorry, this is a Debbie downer comment. But this has literally been bugging me all day. Vent over.
I’m eating this brownie because Samoas are the BEST Girl Scout cookie ever!
I have now subscribed to that YouTube channel; genius! Didn’t even make it to the recipe until after I watched the video and was tempted to keep on watching. Thank you for sharing!
I am so glad I just bought you cookbook, these look delicious. I’ve been following you blog for awhile and want to say thanks for sharing all these delicious recipes. I’ve only been paleo for about 5 months, but with delicious treats like this recipe, I am never tempted to go back. This is a feat since my coworkers bring in cakes, cookies, brownies and such at least twice a week. I can look at them and think, I would so much rather make one of your recipes!
Juli Bauer, Oh how I love thee…As if the brownie recipe wasn’t enough, the youtuber. How, how, HOW have I not seen this until now. I think I’ll just email him the epic dumb $h!t that I always see on social media and let him go to town. Save homie some time so he can unleash on the jackassery.
En serio, though, you’re the best! Thanks! Getting ready for some brownie baking right now!
riiiiight?! i have no idea how i’ve never seen his stuff! i definitely need to send him stuff from my instagram comments lol
This is so genius. Can’t wait try this!!
So I need some pointers, the brownies turned out delicious but something went wrong with the caramel/coconut layer other than me burning the pi$$ out of my finger. That part was really crumbly (but still very tasty) I think it is because the caramel maybe cooled too much or I over cooked it? Don’t get me wrong I still ate and enjoyed every bite they just didn’t stay together like in your pretty picture.
LOVE your blog, I always look forward to reading your new posts, so thanks for doin you girl 🙂
Also, what chocolate chips do you use for your recipes?
i like enjoy life chocolate chips and guittard
Finally!!! The brownie recipe!!!I am serving these sons of b’s tonight. Having friends over for dinner. They are going to flipppppp!!
Looks so good. Sweets are the hardest thing for me to make
These sound amazing, but the link to Juli Bauer’s Vanilla Bean Caramel Sauce won’t work. Can someone please send me the recipe?
the recipe is in my cookbook! that’s the link to my book! http://www.amazon.com/Juli-Bauers-Paleo-Cookbook-Gluten-Free/dp/1628600772/
Made these for ladies night this weekend because one of my friends is recently gluten free and they were a HUGE hit!
I’ve been lusting after this recipe since you first posted it, but I’m usually kind of lazy when it comes to banking and these seemed to have so many components. So this review is super delayed., but I finally decided to pull the trigger and make these bad boys after being sick all week.
For the record… it really wasn’t as hard as I thought! And they are absolutely freaking fantastic. My boyfriend is obsessed. Thank you so much for all you do to provide us with amazing recipes and a peek into your life. I met you last week in KC and you’re truly a gem. Keep doin you… f-bombs and all!!
Hi! I have your cookbook which means I’m gonna try these tomorrow! Just wondering if you can sub the maple sugar in the caramel sauce for coconut sugar? Do you think that will work?:) can’t find maple sugar around here!
yes, it will just be a darker color and a slightly different taste, but still good!
These brownies are amazing. A decent amount of work but amazing. And daylight savings time sucks balls. It is a main factor in seasonal affective disorder and in circadian rhythm disorders which my son has. There is absolutely no good reason for it. Most farmers hate it. It was started during, if I remember right, world war 2 for understandable reasons but, HELLO wars over so absolutely no use to have to drive home at 5:30 in the dark. It does way more harm than (any?) good.
