Turtles. There’s just something magical about the combination of chocolate, caramel, and pecans. Turtles always remind me about Christmas when we were younger.
These brownies are packed with all those amazing chocolate, caramel and pecan flavors we love about Turtles, in a refined sugar-free, gluten-free and paleo brownie.
I love that they bake up soft and fudgy while still tasting super decadent….and you seriously can’t even tell that they’re made with more wholesome ingredients.
Just look how fudgy – even my husband, who is usually pretty tough to trick when it comes to healthier treats was completely smitten!
I used Hodgson Mill Almond Flour because I love their quality and always get great results.
This super fudgy brownie base comes together easily in just one bowl. They start with dark chopped chocolate melted down with coconut oil, and then you just add coconut sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour and spread half of the batter into the pan and pop it in the oven for 15 minutes.
Next comes the ooey gooey caramel center which is just a combination of dates, water, almond milk and cinnamon. You spread a layer over the brownie base then sprinkle with some chopped pecans for that signature turtle flavor.
The remaining half of the brownie batter gets added and then some more chopped pecans and paleo-friendly chocolate chips for good measure.
They bake up into these dense, fudgy on the inside, tender on the outside, chocolate- and pecan- studded brownies. Drizzle on another layer of the caramel sauce and they totally pass for the real thing.
