‘Healthy Caramel Slice’

1383335_622346501137862_1347985951_n

I love caramel. On the rare occasions I want something sweet it is normally caramel based (or ice cream but thats another story). I will pass on chocolate any day but the beige, creamy, caramelized under tones get me everytime.
So of course I had to modify and come up with a healthier version…..

Ingredients

BASE
1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 cup of dates
3/4 cup of water
TOPPING
4 Tbsp Cacao
1 cup of dates
3/4 cup of hot water

Method
Place the cashew nuts, almonds dates and water in a food processor and blend until it becomes a fine crumb and then clumbs into a ball.
Press into a slice tin.
Place the dates and hot water into the blend and leave for 2 minutes. Then add the cacao and blend until smooth.
This recipe is rich and sweet and incredibly satisfying. AND they are gluten, vegan, refined sugar and dairy free.
