Homemade Caramel Slice

Homemade caramel slice

I think I say this every time I post a new treat recipe, but this time I am dead serious. This caramel slice is the best thing I have ever made!! I have no words to describe how yummy it is, it's like a dream come true 😍 If you love treats then make this slice! 

This homemade caramel slice is free of refined sugar, gluten, dairy and seriously tastes better than the real thing! Enjoy it as a healthy treat with friends and family or on special occasions. 

As with all of my healthy raw treats I always recommend you use a coconut oil that is unscented otherwise the coconut taste can be quite over powering. The coconut oil I use is the brand Blue Coconut and I buy it from Pak'nSave. I buy their 1L tub as I go through this stuff pretty fast...I even use it to moisturize my face 😁

Something I always do when using dates in my recipes is soak them in a mug of boiling water for 5 minutes. I then tip them into a sieve and drain out as much water as possible. This makes the dates soft and allows them to blend into a smooth paste. 

P.s. I used 1/2 a cup of almond butter in the caramel but accidentally wrote 1/4 in the video. Sorry guys! 💖
