Raw Pecan Caramel Slice (Recipe)

We might be biased, but this raw pecan caramel slice rivals any traditional caramel slice! The test is easy: Make this and see if your friends and family even realise that it is a healthier version of the ‘oh-so-naughty’ caramel slice.

Ingredients:

Base

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates (pitted)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey

Caramel Pecan Layer

  • 1 cup medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Top Layer

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

What to do:

  1. To make the base first, pulse dates, almonds, coconut oil, raw cacao and honey in the food processor into a crumble. Press this mixture into a lined slice tin, pressing down until smooth. Place in the freezer while you create the middle layer.
  2. To make the caramel pecan layer, place dates, coconut oil, tahini, vanilla and raw honey in the food processor. Process until smooth. Add in the chopped pecans and pulse lightly, you want the nuts to be throughout the mix.
  3. Pour the caramel pecan layer on top of the base, smooth this layer and return to freezer to set.
  4. Mix together the melted coconut oil, raw cacao and sweetener until smooth.
  5. Once the caramel pecan layer is fully set, top with the chocolate layer and chopped nuts. Return to the freezer.
  6. To serve, remove from freezer and slice while still frozen.
