Sugar Free Caramel Slice

So I haven’t written anything in a LONG time. Over 12 months actually. I just haven’t had the desire really. Anyway my first one back is a recipe, yes I know, not that interesting, but give me time to ease myself back into it.

First off I’d like to ask you to read a post on nutrition from the ladies at Girls Gone Strong. It’s quick and easy so you’ll be back in a flash. Why? The following recipe, while sugar free, does contain a healthy amount of healthy fats. What does this mean? This is a treat that should be enjoyed in moderation! So don’t go overboard and eat the entire tray in one sitting. The post below is to help show that healthy fats are a part of a balanced diet.

Welcome back!

Now onto the recipe:

Ingredients:
Base:
1 cup macadamias
1 cup almonds
1 cup medjool dates (remove seeds)

Filling:
1 cup medjool dates (remove seeds)
2 tblspns coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup water
2 pinches sea salt

Topping:
1/2 cup almond or cashew butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup raw cacao powder (read:not cocoa powder)
2 tblspns stevia powder
Pinch sea salt

Base:
Blend all base ingredients together. I used a blender but a food processor is probably easier.
Press into a square tin and refrigerate for half an hour.

Filling:
Blend all filling ingredients together until smooth. (Note you may need need all of the water! add it gradually)
Spread evenly over base and freeze for 15 minutes.

Topping:
If coconut oil isn’t melted, melt slowly over low heat first.
Mix all topping ingredients together and pour over base and filling.
Refrigerate for half an hour.

That’s it. This is pretty damn good so don’t go crazy! Small squares as a treat! This should divide into 20 serves at 220 calories per serve, like I said don’t go crazy!

Enjoy!
