(mostly) raw caramel slice

I’ve been wanting to experiment more with raw desserts, because they are made with more whole ingredients and are generally more nutritious.
I came across
this amazing looking caramel slice and decided to try it!
And it was SO GOOD. 
I made a few adjustments to the recipe, switching out 1 cup of the coconut flour for some nuts, because the coconut flour cost me $11 and I refused to use half the bag in one recipe! 😛
But it worked out great, and would be a good way to use up the leftover pulp from making nut milk as well!
Making the chocolate with cacao butter would probably have been really yum, but I couldn’t afford to buy any haha. So I just made a simpler version with coconut oil, cacao & agave.
Try this out- it’s amazing!


Base:
1 cup coconut flour

3/4 cup almonds, cashews or macadamia nuts (or nut pulp)
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
 (or agave/ maple/ coconut nectar)
pinch sea salt
Caramel:
2 cups pitted medjool dates

4 tablespoons coconut oil

3 tablespoons brown rice syrup (or agave/coconut nectar to make it completely raw)

2 tablespoons water
1 heaped teaspoon almond butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

pinch sea salt
Raw chocolate – I used this recipe from Rawified 


Then follow the instructions here and enjoy!
