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 tweaking a few recipes that I've seen online, I have come up with 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.

(Makes 12-16 squares)

You'll need:

 

Base:

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

Filling:

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

Topping:

- 1/4 cup rice bran oil (or coconut oil)
- 1/4 cup Canadian maple syrup
- 1/4 cup 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.
