These caramel chocolate chip cookie brownies will blow your mind. This flourless dessert is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, and yet it is so incredibly decadent. The brownie layer is a fudgy chocolate taste explosion, the chocolate chip cookie layer is buttery and crumbly, and the caramel sauce… pure luscious naughtiness. (Psst, there’s also a video with step-by-step instructions!)
You know those ideas that are so insane they are actually brilliant? This recipe is one of them.
I mean, just how insane do you have to be to think to yourself: “I know, I’ll throw together chocolate chip cookies, caramel sauce and brownies, and bake it all in one pan. And, oh why not, let’s make the whole thing flourless and dairy free… and refined sugar free.”
This dairy free frosting just might be the fluffiest you’ve ever tasted. With only three ingredients, this vegan chocolate frosting recipe is easy and reliable, and gives the most delicious results. It’s also perfect for anyone with food intolerances or allergies, being gluten and dairy free.

Frosting. The reason we all eat cake.
Yes, yes, the sponge part can be super tasty – but let’s be real: we’re all here for the fluffy, creamy, sweet awesomeness that is frosting.
This vegan cookie dough is the perfect treat for when you are craving the buttery deliciousness of chocolate chip cookie dough, but want to eat something reasonably healthy at the same time.

Can we get one thing out of the way?
My paleo & vegan caramel sauce isn’t actual caramel sauce. And almond milk isn’t actual milk. And my raw vegan raspberry cheesecake isn’t actually a cheesecake. And nice cream isn’t actually ice cream.
This healthy melted ice cream smoothie bowl tastes like everything a decadent ice cream sundae should be, but without the brain freeze, the sugar high or the subsequent energy crash. In fact, you could easily have this 10 minute, 6 ingredient vegan paleo dessert for breakfast – and you would still be getting a fairly balanced, wholesome meal that also happens to be gluten and dairy free!
This is what happens when you really want a decadent ice cream sundae, but it’s cold and miserable outside, you’re battling with a cold and you know that a freezing cold ice cream isn’t the best idea. (Even though ice cream is always a great idea.) But we won’t be defeated – it’s June and that fact alone demands that if we want ice cream, ice cream is what we’ll get.
