  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8x8” baking pan with parchment paper; set aside.

  7. In a separate small mixing bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and almond butter until combined for the salted caramel sauce.
  8. Pour half of the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Then, pour half of the salted caramel sauce on top, along with the brownie batter granola butter. Use a knife or toothpick to gently swirl around. 
  9. Then, pour the rest of the brownie batter on top and spread to cover the dilling.
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
