Vegan Salted Brown Butter Caramel Sauce

  • Author: Gabrielle
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 7 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsps cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup almond milk



  1. In a pan over medium heat at the vegan butter. Continue to swirl the butter with your spatula. It should sizzle and then slightly brown to a nice golden color. (3-4 mins)
  2. Now add the coconut milk, brown sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes until reduced by half and golden.
  3. Take 1/4 cup hot almond milk and combine with corn starch. Whisk until smooth. Pour mixture into the pan and whisk to just combine. Don’t over mix as it may clump the caramel. Remove from heat. The sauce will thicken as it sits. If it’s not thick enough simply combine 1 tsp of corn starch with 2 tsps of hot almond milk. If too thick run it through a blender and with hot almond milk!
  4. Serve with sliced apples or whatever you choose!
