Makeover Monday ~ Pecan Pie Brownies

It is  Monday, so it is time for another recipe makeover. I love to take favorite recipes and make them THM friendly. One of the biggest hurdles people have to overcome is thinking that healthy eating means never having their favorite foods again. The truth is that you can make a healthy version of almost any meal. And most meals don’t require that much work to re-make!
Today’s recipe combines two favorites: Pecan Pie and Brownies! Need I say more? Probably not, but I will! Rich fudgey brownies with a caramel pecan topping. This is a decadent dessert that will have your friends and family raving! The original recipe for this can be found at Delish.

Pecan Pie Brownies ~ THM S


For Brownies

For Topping

    1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. Melt butter and baking chocolate together using either a double boiler or microwave. Watch carefully if using a microwave, working in 10 second increments to prevent burning.
    3. Remove from heat and whisk in sweetener and stevia.
    4. Whisk in caramel extract and mineral salt.
    5. Whisk in eggs one at a time.
    6. Whisk in oat fiber or baking blend.
    7. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.

  1. Meanwhile, make the pecan filling. In a medium bowl, whisk together caramel sauce, eggs, vanilla, stevia and salt until smooth. Fold in pecans, stirring until they are fully coated in the mixture.
  2. When brownies have cooked for 20 minutes, remove from oven and top with pecan topping, spreading evenly across the surface of the brownies.
  3. Return to the oven and bake 25-30 more minutes, until the pecan mixture is set. Let cool completely, slice and serve. Leftovers should be kept in the refrigerator but I like these best room temperature or just barely warm. 🙂
