Brownies that make a $10 bottle of vegan caramel totally justified

For nearly two years I've been eyeing this bottle of agave syrup vegan caramel at the health food store. It looks delicious and at more than $1 an ounce, I have yet to buy it.

Until now.

I was having a serious craving for turtle candy brownies, you know, chocolate brownies with pecans and caramel. (Maybe you haven't had those before, only those with the sweetest of sweet tooth have). So after reading some stellar reviews about FunFresh Foods vegan agave syrup caramel, my crazy craving won out and I bought the darn stuff.


And I tell you what, these brownies (and well, probably air), would taste better with this caramel on it. 


 Got a serious sweet craving you can't squelch? Give these indulgent treats a whirl.



Brownies fit for a turtle
(Makes an 8x8 pan of brownies)
Ingredients:

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 banana, mashed up
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Bottle of FunFresh Foods Caramel

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350.
Grease an 8x8 pan.  
Blend flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix in sugar, oil, vanilla extract and the mashed up banana. Add chopped pecans. Mix until thick with a sandy-like texture.
Pour brownie batter into the pan. Top with caramel syrup (to taste, but don't put too much or it'll make the brownies soupy). Take a knife and swirl the caramel into the brownie mix.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Share with friends or you'll eat them ALL.
