Raw Caramel Slice

Raw Caramel Slice

My latest mission has been to make a raw caramel slice. Somehow, the marriage of dates, macadamia nuts and salt forms a caramel flavour. Amazing!

Try this out and see what you think. You can vary the contents of your base – I use almonds and seeds but you can use only almonds or another nut if you prefer. You could even add a little desiccated coconut.

Raw Caramel Slice

By October 10, 2013

This caramel slice is rich and delicious just like it's sugary version however you will not feel sick or over indulgent after a serve of this one. It is also a lot easier and quicker to make. It is made in three stages but each stage take between 5-10 minutes. Can't beat that and the kids will love it without knowing what they are eating is 100% healthy.

Instructions

  1. Grease and line a 19cm square pan.
  2. To make the base, put all base ingredients into your food processor and process until it becomes pasty.  The more you grind the nuts and seeds, the more oil they will release and the stickier it will become. 
  3. Press into the base of the pan in an even layer. You may think at first there isn't enough mixture but trust me, there is. If you have too much, the base is too thick and it throws the balance of the whole slice. Refrigerate the base while you prepare the next layer.
  4. To prepare the caramel filling, put all filling ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth. Taste for saltiness and adjust if necessary. You want just the right balance of sweet to salty to create that caramel flavour.

  1. Pour filling over base and spread until there is an even cover. Place into the fridge or freezer to set. It will happen faster in the freezer (only about half an hour).
  2. Once the caramel is set, make your chocolate topping. Melt the coconut oil and cacao butter in a metal bowl suspended over a pan of boiling water. This way the heat will not be too intense and damage the nutrients.
  3. Once the oils are melted, whisk in remaining topping ingredients. 
  4. Pour over the caramel filling and tip the tin until the cover is even and smooth.
  5. Place back into the fridge or freezer and leave until the topping is hard. 
  6. Slice into squares and serve. Store in the fridge.
