Raw Caramel Slice

Since beginning my Nutrition degree, I’ve tried creating my favourite dessert recipes but in a healthier version (but don’t get me wrong, I still love to indulge in ‘real desserts’ with sugar). While they still contain loads of kilo-joules, they’re not filled with bleached sugars and instead include a natural form of sugar like organic maple/date/rice bran syrup. These little delights are going to provide you with extra sustenance that your body will LOVE you for. The nuts in the base provide you with omega-6 fatty acids which can help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system. The dates provide the extra sweetness and chewiness to mimic a caramel flavour while both the dates and cacao provide you with antioxidants!

Ingredients:
Base;
1/2 cup cashews (or nuts of your choice)
1/4 coconut flakes/desiccated coconut
6-8 Dates
Filling;
7-10 Dates
1/2 cup date syrup or honey or raw maple syrup
1tsp vanilla bean paste
Pinch of sea salt
Chocolate topping;
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup of coconut oil or cream or milk
2tbsp Date Syrup or honey or raw maple syrup

Method:
1. Blend each section of the slice in a high powered food processor and layer in from base-topping in a mini cupcake tin or tray
2. Freeze overnight 
3. Enjoy😋😋😋
