Sacha Inchi Cacao Crunch Brownie

Sacha Inchi Cacao Crunch Brownies

Sacha Inchi seeds are deliciously crunchy with a rich nuttiness that adds a touch of umami to complement desserts wonderfully! Amy Lyon, the creative behind the plant-based blog Fragrant Vanilla, did an incredible job balancing sweet and savory with her amazing Sacha Inchi Cacao Crunch Brownies. This creation is too good not to share! It’s easy to make; whip up a batch for that holiday potluck!

Prep Time 45 min
Yield 1 Dozen

Caramel Ingredients

  • 1 cup soft medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup raw tahini
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract (optional)
  • 1/2 cup water (or as needed)

Brownie Ingredients


  1. To make the caramel, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (adding a little water if necessary, it should be the consistency of pourable but still thick caramel). Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the coconut sugar, coconut oil and tahini until well combined and the sugar is starting to break down. Add the flax egg and vanilla, and beat until smooth. Add flour, Cacao Powder and sea salt, and beat until smooth.  Stir in Sacha Inchi Seeds.
  3. Scrape the batter into an oiled 8×8 inch pan, then drop the caramel over it in 2 tbsp amounts, and swirl it with a knife.
  4. Place in the oven, and bake for 30-35 minutes or until set.
  5. Let cool before cutting into bars.

*To make flax eggs, simply mix together 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds, and 6 Tbsp filtered water and let sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before using in the recipe.
