We only use clean ingredients in this recipe and you won’t believe that there is nothing to feel guilty about while enjoying these gooey treats.

For the brownie base:
- ½ cup peanut butter or other nut butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 2-3 tbsp almond milk or another other kind of milk
- 2 tbsp of cacao powder
- ½ cup almond flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ⅓ tsp baking powder
- Pinch of himalayan salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until smooth. Spread evenly on a lined 9×13 or 8×8 pan and bake for about 10-15 minutes until center is set. Do not over bake. Let cool completely. Then make the nougat.
For the nougat:
- 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients and mix until smooth. Drop teaspoon-fulls of the nougat evenly on the cooled brownie base.
For the caramel filling:
- 12 soft Medjool dates, pitted (about 3/4 cup packed)
- 1/3 cup water
- scant 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil , melted
Combine all ingredients into a food processor or high power blender and blend until completely smooth.
Spread caramel sauce over the nougat. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of chopped peanuts or other preferred nut. You can even leave them out all together.
For the dark chocolate topping:
- 1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
Melt the two ingredients over low heat in a small saucepan. Stirl while melting to prevent clumping or sticking. Once completely melted continue to stir until smooth. Pour chocolate over the caramel and spread evenly with a spatula. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place pan in freezer for about a half hour to set. Cut into squares and enjoy!
