Healthy 'Caramel' Slices

Hello My Loves




These healthy treats are by far my husband's favourite of all the ones I make.  These last just about the evening in our fridge and if we have some left over by the following morning, he takes them for his drive to work! They are so easy to make and even tastier to eat.  So sweet and all great ingredients.  They taste even better than caramel slices and totally guilt free!




Ingredients

Base:
200g Almond Flour (ground almonds)
4-5 tablespoons coconut oil

'Caramel' Centre 
250g soft pitted or medjool dates (soaked for at least one hour in water, preferably soaked overnight)
4 tablespoons of almond butter
4 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of coconut milk

Chocolate Topping
Dark Chocolate
Hazelnuts or Strawberries

Method:

Base:

  • Melt coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat until it is liquid.
  • Pour almond flour into a bowl 
  • When coconut oil has melted, pour it into almond flour and mix until well moist (how disgusting is that word?!)  
  • Spread the mixture into a flat baking tray or dish, keeping the mixture around a half inch thick and flatten well with the flat side of a spoon.
  • Pop into freezer


'Caramel' Centre

  • Put the dates, almond butter, honey and coconut milk into a nutribullet or blender and blend together until smooth.  
  • This may require stopping the blender a few times and scraping the mixture off the edges, but after a few tries, you will get it blended smoothly.
  • Take the base out of the freezer and smooth the mixture over it with a knife or spoon. 
  • Pop into freezer


Chocolate Topping

  • Melt some dark chocolate
  • Take the mixture out of the freezer and spread chocolate over the top.
  • Add any toppings you like.  I like hazelnuts for a Nutella taste or strawberries


Do tag me @leopardandspice if you make these, as I would love to see them!

Love, Mini
