Caramel Sun Butter Sea Salt Brownies

I’m Stacey from www.beautyandthefoodie.com  and I enjoy making healthy paleo treats for my family. I adore La Healthy Living and all her healthy living articles and natural remedies. There is a vast wealth of knowledge on this site. I was very excited to guest post here and bring you some chocolaty paleo treats. These paleo brownies are thick, chocolaty, sheet-cake style brownies with a caramel, sunflower butter frosting. Then they are sprinkled with sea salt and drizzled with optional chocolate sauce. Enjoy!
Sincerely,
Stacey

Hi, my name is Stacey and I’m a licensed cosmetologist, certified colorist, and a color correction specialist. I majored in nutrition, in college during the 80′s, and learned the wrong way to eat. I am a food lover, with an intense wheat allergy, that follows a grain free and low carb diet. I am somewhat  paleo / primal but also lean toward low carb primal. But, I do use some organic dairy products. So, I am learning to cook and bake grain free and low carb. Eating this way has really changed my life and my body. I’m 46, and have tried every kind of diet out there, and this one has given me the very best results without  being hungry. I would like to share my  favorite recipe creations with everyone. I also make DIY natural beauty products, and I love to sharing fitness tips that work. I believe beauty starts on the inside, and it’s never too late to be, who you want to be.
