Mmmmm, caramel slice. If you haven’t tried making raw caramel slice, now is the time to try and the recipe below is the way to do it!
Gluten, dairy, refined sugar and egg free, paleo, raw vegan.
10 medjool dates or 1/2 cup dry dates soaked in boiling water for an hour or so
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup almond meal
2 Tbs raw cacao
1/2 tsp pure vanilla (as in vanilla extract with no sugar etc)
1 Tbs coconut oil if required
Optional: 1 tsp raw honey to sweeten if required
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup almond butter
6 medjool dates or 1/3 cup dry dates soaked in boiling water for an hour or so
Pinch of salt
2 Tbs coconut cream
1. Blend base ingredients in a food processor for base until very fine and there are no chunks of date. Add coconut oil if it will not hold together well when pressed. Add honey and sweeten to taste if required.
2. Press into a tin lined with baking paper and place in the freezer to set while making the topping.
3. Blend all topping ingredients except coconut cream together until smooth. Once mixture is smooth (well, at least until there are no ‘bits’ of date), add coconut cream and blend until thick and creamy. Pour over base and lick the spoon 😉
4. Top with nuts, salt flakes or paleo chocolate and set in the fridge.
