Raw Caramel Slice - Vegan

Who doesn't love a good caramel slice? Raw caramel slice was probably my first ever raw slice I made and loved - and for good reason! This slice is an OG and packed with nutritious ingredients - plus it's quick to prepare, requires no baking and so delicious!


Ingredients:

Base:

1/2 cup blanched almond meal (or oats)

1/2 cup raw cashews

1/2 cup fine coconut

1/2 cup pitted dates (soak in boiling water to soften for 5-10min then drain)

2 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt


Caramel:

3 cups pitted or Medjool dates (soak in boiling water to soften for 5-10min then drain)

1 cup cashews (softened in boiling water for 30 minutes then drain)

1/4 cup coconut oil melted

1 1/4 cups coconut cream (or milk)

3 tbsp hulled tahini

1 tsp vanilla extract

Optional: I love adding 1 serve (25g) of two islands co salted caramel protein powder.


Chocolate topping:

200g melted dark chocolate

2 tbsp coconut oil melted


Method:

  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Place all base ingredients into a good blender or food processor until well combined and sticky. Press down into the baking tray. Set aside in fridge while you make the caramel.

  3. Place the caramel ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour over the base ingredients. Set aside in the freezer for 1 hour.

  4. Mix the melted chocolate and oil together then pour over the caramel layer. Place in the freezer for 2-3 more hours.

  5. Chop up and serve!
