Salted Caramel Almond Bars

YUM!

And they’re raw!

I have to admit, these float my boat even more than the Vegan Almond Roca…and the small people in the house love them!

What you’ll need for the base…

  • 1c of organic almonds
  • 1/4c of cacao powder
  • 6tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1tbsp of coconut nectar

Process all of the above in your food processor until it’s about the consistency of almond butter…almost, but not quite.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and press the mixture down…pack it in tight!

For the salted caramel…

  • 1c of soaked dates
  • 1/4c of water
  • 2tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1tsp of raw vanilla powder
  • 1/2tsp of himalayan salt

Place all of the ingredients into a four cup mason jar and blend until creamy with your hand blender/smart stick.

If you double the recipe, it might work in your processor, but there wasn’t quite enough to break it all down.

Spread the caramel over top of the chocolatey base and place in the freezer for an hour or more.

Once they’ve firmed up a bit, removed them from the freezer and drizzle a little bit of homemade chocolate over the top.

Homemade chocolate (just enough for this recipe)…

  • 2tbsp of coconut oil
  • 3tbsp of cacao powder

Gently melt the coconut oil and stir in the cacao powder… so simple.

Let the chocolate firm up and then slice them into bars or squares…you don’t need much so the smaller the better.

Sprinkle a little himalayan salt over the top and enjoy!

Store these beauties in the fridge or the freezer… and share with your friends!
