‘They won’t last long’ deliciously delectable Raw caramel slices….

These vegan, gluten, grain and refined sugar free caramel slices, are without doubt the most delicious thing I have ever made. With a nutty base, gooey caramel centre and creamy cacao topping, they literally melt in the mouth and leave you drooling for more. What’s more, they are actually good for you. Packed with nutty goodness, filling your body with energy giving protein. Full of antioxidants from the cacao, coconut oil packed with anti-inflammatory and immune boosting goodness and heaps of iron from the juicy dates. And if that doesn’t inspire you, then the quick and so simple recipe will. They are raw, so no need for baking, a bit of chilling (that’s the slices, not you) and lots of eating!
