Salted Caramel Brownies with Whole Wheat Flour

Sharing is caring!

This yummy treat has that perfect blend of salty and sweet. If you’re not serving it right away, keep the caramel topping separate and heat and add right before serving. While you can add it earlier, I love it fresh and warm!

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

For topping:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sea salt for the top

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.   
Spray a 9″ square baking pan with cooking spray.
Blend butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and mix until well blended.
Spread into prepared pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of brownies comes out clean.

Caramel sauce topping:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat.  
Stir in the brown sugar and whisk for approximately 2 minutes.
Add in the whipping cream and  whisk for approximately another 2 minutes.
Stir in vanilla.

To serve:  
Cut brownies into squares.  Drizzle with caramel topping.  Sprinkle top with sea salt.   


  1. These look amazing. I was wondering it shouldn’t make a difference if I use whole wheat white flour would it? I am going to try and make these soon. Thanks for the recipe.

    OMG! I love brownies, but brownies with caramel sauce is on a whole other plane! I cannot wait to make these. So glad that I saw where you said white flour was okay. Don’t have a problem with whole wheat, sure it tastes great, just don’t have any on hand and can’t wait to make these!

    I like Salted Caramel Brownies and these look healthy using whole wheat flour. The recipe looks easy, though I have not had success with making brownies They are either too soft and fall apart or are dry. I will give these a try!

  5. I have avoided brownies for too long! These look scrumptious. “Salted” alarmed me but I see there is not all that much salt in the recipe. Bring it on!

    These sound sooo good! I’ve made brownies before but nothing like this. I have everything I need except for heavy cream darnit, so they’ll have to wait until I get to the store, but I’ll make ’em!
