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.

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.”

As I’m sure you’ve noticed so far, if you’ve been following my posts, I love to describe food and recipes in excruciating detail, with way too many flowery adjectives and an almost scary amount of enthusiasm. This will continue. After all, you can’t taste the deliciousness I so very much want to share with you, so hopefully my words are powerful enough for you to get at least a hint of the amazing flavours hidden in every single one of my recipes.
Perfectly crumbly, incredibly easy and quick to make, and almost dangerously delicious, these chocolate pecan dairy and gluten free oatmeal cookies hit the spot just right. They have it all – the taste, the textures, the smell… and you will want to make them again and again. And again.
Where do you find your inspiration? I find it in ridiculously random situations, like sneaky snack attacks, where you’re not actually hungry for food, but for taste, and textures, and smells. And so you walk around your kitchen, and take a bite of this and that, and you realise that anchovies go amazingly well with walnuts, and you decide that the combination of chocolate and pecans is heavenly, only to be further improved with a pinch of oats. Of course, you are incredibly proud of yourself for discovering such groundbreaking flavour combinations – never mind that they have been around for eons.
