#80 - GUILT FREE XMAS TREAT - RAW CARAMEL SLICE

    • Just because it's the festive season, doesn't mean we have to resort to processed, crappy desserts. This recipe is one from my sister - it's devine and sensational! Probably best to double the ingredients and pre prepare base and caramel layer.

      1. 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
    • -
      1. 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • -
      1. 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
    • Base:
    • -
      1. 3/4 cup almonds

      1. To make the base, place the almonds, coconut, dates and oil in a food processor and process for 1-2 mins or until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Press into the base of a 20cm * 20cm lightly greased baking tin lined with non stick baking paper.

      1. Refrigerate until set (note: you can do this in advance days before if it suits)
    • -
      1. To make the caramel, place dates almond spread, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a food processor and process for 1-2 mins until smooth. Spread of base and refrigerate.

      1. Place cacao, oil and rice malt syrup in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir for 2-3 mins or until smooth. Pour cacao mixture over the caramel and refrigerate for 2 hours until set. Freeze for 30 mins and slice into 4cm * 10 cm bars to serve.

      1. Makes 10, but if you double ingredients it's more like 20 squares - unless it's my serving size, then less....

    • Warmest wishes to all my lovely bodywork clients and Naturopathic patients, past and present... may the festive season bring friends and family together to share the joy of love, food, and compassion.
