INGREDIENTS 

  • 1/4 cup Califia Farms Original Oatmilk
  • 4 Tablespoons flaxseed meal + 8 Tablespoons WARM water (This makes your 'Flax Eggs')
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted 
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar 
  • ¼ cup vegan caramel sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups organic All-purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips, semi-sweet 

 

Topping:

 

  • Pretzels
  • Vegan caramel sauce, for drizzle 

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a square 8 x 8 baking pan with vegan butter and line with parchment paper.
  2. Begin by adding the flaxseed meal + water to a small bowl, stirring until combined and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the melted butter and sugar together, whisking until combined.
  4. Add in the flaxseed meal mixture, Oatmilk, caramel, and vanilla, whisking to combine.
  5. Now, add in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt, mixing everything together using a spatula or wooden spoon, until fully combined. **NOTE: Batter will be thick, that's OK**
  6. Finally, add in the chocolate chips and fold them in gently.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and evenly spread it in. Add the pretzels to the top of batter and gently press them in slightly.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center comes out "mostly clean".
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes or so before lifting brownies out from the pan.
  10. Once removed, slice brownies into squares, drizzle with vegan caramel, and serve.
  11. Enjoy!
