Raw Vegan Caramel Slice Recipie

Looking for a guilt-free treat?

This Raw Caramel Slice by Brynley King is what you need in your freezer. RAW, VEGAN, REFINED SUGAR FREE, GLUTEN FREE, PALEO and DELICIOUS. This treat will become a staple dessert in your diet. My Mum tried out this simple slice recipe about a year ago and I can now say it’s one of my favourite things she makes! It’s so yummy infact that I thought I’d share it with my blog.

Author of Going Coconuts , Brynley King is all about eating clean and living well. For the last 11 years she has been working with the Banaban Virgin Coconut Oil company. Hence why this recipe is oh so coconutty!

If you didn’t know, coconut oil is full of Medium-Chain Triglycerides; these fatty acids go straight to the liver and provide energy. Coconut oil is also rich in Lauric Acid which helps to kill fungi, bad bacteria and viruses. Coconut oil lowers cholesterol, enhances brain function, improves bone health and boosts immunity! Applied topically the oil can moisturize skin and protect against hair damage.

Wow, this all sounds like some great reasons to make and eat this caramel slice!

So here is the RAW CARAMEL SLICE RECIPE – by Brynley King:

Directions

 
1. Line a square or rectangle-baking tray with baking paper. This will ensure your treat will be easily lifted out of the tray without compromising your layers. (Try not to use a very large baking tray, as you want your slice to be plump.)

2. To start off your treat, grab all of your base ingredients and place into a food processor and blend.

3. Place the combined base ingredients in the tray and firmly press down the mixture. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.

4. Use the same method again for the next layer – place all the crunch ingredients into the food processor and blend.

5. Place the crunch mixture in the tray and firmly press down the layer. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.

6. Now the best bit, the caramel layer! Place all ingredients in your food processor and blend. If your dates are sticking to the sides simply scrape down the sides and keep blending.

7. Pour the caramel mixture into the tray and even out the mixture (a spatula is best for this part to even out the gooey caramel). Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.

8.
Finally the chocolate layer! In a mixing bowl mix all ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency. Pour over the slice and freeze overnight or for at least 4 hours.


Tip – When cutting your slice use a warm sharp knife to ensure your slice cuts clean.
