Ingredients

Cookie layer

  • 1.5 cups oat flour (150 g)
  • ½ cup almond flour (55 g)
  • ⅓ cup dates, pitted & soaked (100 g)
  • 3 tbsp full-fat coconut milk

Date caramel

  • ⅓ cup almond butter (60 g)
  • 1 cup dates, pitted & soaked (120 g)
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt

Chocolate layer

  • 1 cup dark chocolate (about 150 g), melted

Topping

  • Almonds, crushed
  • Coarse salt (optional)

Instructions

Make the cookie layer

  1. Place the drained dates and coconut milk into a food processor and polse to obtain a smooth puree.
  2. Add almond flour and oat flour and pulse a couple of times to incorporate, then transfer the mixture to a lined baking dish. Spread it into an even layer.

Make the caramel

  1. Blend dates and almond milk for a couple of seconds until smooth, then add the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Blend or pulse everything until you achieve a smooth consistency, then pour your date caramel on top of the bottom layer in the baking sheet. 
  3. Spread evenly with a spatula or large spoon, then cover and freeze for at least 1 hour.

Add chocolate layer

  1. Remove the baking sheet from the freezer. Pour the dark melted chocolate over the hardened caramel layer and sprinkle with coarse salt and crushed almonds.

Chill & serve

  1. Cover again and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting into slices and serving.
  2. The caramel slices can be stored in the fridge for up to a week or covered in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

  • We love this raw caramel slice straight from the freezer with about 5 minutes of defrosting time.
  • You need a fairly good blender or food processor for this recipe to create smooth layers. Help your appliance out by soaking and draining the dates for at least 30 minutes before making this recipe!
  • If you want to be sure to avoid any possible cracking of the chocolate layer, add some coconut oil or coconut milk to the melted dark chocolate.
