This Raw Caramel Tart Recipe will knock your socks off! If you do make it (and I highly suggest you do!) please share a pic with me on Facebook!
A couple of tips: Make sure your coconut oil is melted (not a problem in the Queensland summer that is happening right now). Use medjool dates and not just your plain pitted dates as these are sweeter and juicier (if you have no option for Medjool dates, then soak your normal dates in warm water for about 15mins to soften them right up). Don’t share this on Facebook until after you have eaten it because people will ask for some and that’s really not going to happen is it?!
Time: approx. 20mins
Makes: 12 large pieces
1/2 Cup Almonds
1 Cup pitted Medjool Honey Dates
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
10 pitted Medjool Honey Dates
2 tbsp Almond Butter
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
3 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
Pinch of Himalayan Rock Salt
1/4 cup Coconut Oil melted
1/4 cup Cacao Powder
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1. Blend the almonds in your food processor, Thermie or awesome blender for the base until they are a crumb texture. Add in the dates slowly while the processor is on. Add in the coconut oil and blend until they resemble a biscuit base.
Line a slice tin with baking paper and press the base mixture into an even layer. Place the tin into the freezer to set whilst you make the caramel.
2. Add the dates for the caramel filling into the processor. Add in each of the other ingredients slowly and scrape down the sides occasionally. Grab your tin from the freezer and add the caramel filling on top. Place back into the freezer to set whilst you make the chocolate top.
3. Add all of the ingredients into the processor and mix together until a beautiful chocolate mixture is seen. Grab your tin and pour the chocolate over the top. Place the whole thing back into the freezer to set for about an hour.
4. This is not a great slice to have outside for too long as the coconut oil will melt in the heat. I have never experienced this as it doesn’t ever last that long!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
