Raw caramel slice


Ever since trying the raw caramel slice from Combi in Byron Bay, I have not stopped thinking about how delicious it was for something that didn't contain condensed milk, chocolate or butter, as is typically found in traditional caramel slice recipes. I have been very keen to try and replicate something similar at home, so after doing a bit of research and coming across this recipe, I decided to make a couple of adjustments as set out in the recipe below. While a raw caramel slice is never going to taste 100% as good as the real version, this recipe comes pretty close, and is an awesome snack to keep on hand for when you feel like something sweet but still healthy.

You'll need:

 

Base:

- 1 cup of medjool dates
- 3/4 cup of almonds
- 1 tbs of melted coconut oil

Filling:

- 1 cup of medjool dates
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 2 tbs of tahini
- 1/2 cup of Canadian maple syrup
- 1 cup of cashews (soaked in 1/4 cup of water)

Topping:

- 1/4 cup of rice bran oil (however you can use coconut oil)
- 1/4 cup of Canadian maple syrup
- 1/4 cup of cacao powder


1. Blend all of the base ingredients in a food processor until combined well, then press into a slice tin and place in the freezer.

2. Blend all of the filling ingredients in a food processor until smooth, then pour on top of the base and return to the freezer.

3. Melt all of the topping ingredients together in a saucepan on low heat, then once the filling has set, pour on top and return to the freezer.

4. Once set, slice into squares and store in the freezer in a tupperware container.

  1. Giving children sound tidbits does not end at the 4 dividers of the home. Since they burn through the greater part of their day in seven days at school, it is critical that the snacks they expend are similarly as solid as those that you give them at home. Click Here
