This is the ultimate indulgent treat. It contains the most incredible tahini caramel, a crunchy almond and cashew base and cacao drizzle. Talk about healthy indulgence at its best. Better yet, it’s raw, vegan, refined sugar free and completely delicious. I love serving this with a cup of my homemade chai.

Ingredients

Makes: 8

For the base

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup almonds
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the caramel:

  • 1/2 cup hulled tahini
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • pinch of Himalayan rock salt

For the cacao drizzle:

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp water

 

Methods

  1. Line a small tin with baking paper.
  2. To make the base, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the mixture comes together but is still a little chunky. Spread the base into lined tin and flatten with a spoon. Place in the fridge to set.
  3. To make the caramel layer, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Spread the caramel over the base layer and flatten it with a spoon. Return to the fridge.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cacao drizzle ingredients and whisk until they form a smooth consistency. Add more water if the mixture is too thick. Spread over caramel layer evenly. Place the tin in the freezer and allow to set for 30 minutes. Cut into slices and serve chilled. This slice will last in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.

  1. I cant have dates due to SIBO, what can i substiute instead for the base? I use honey instead sugar

    1. Hi Karin,
      You could try using dried figs or prunes if they sit better with you? Alternatively a thick sweetener like rice malt syrup may work as a substitute. Let us know how you go!

    1. Hi Daliad,
      At JSHealth we don’t focus on numbers. Weight, calories, macro’s etc. We concentrate on eating whole, nourishing, nutrient dense foods. Numbers increase stress and create poor food and body relationships. This is a healthy treat and, as such, having a slice a few times a week as a treat is a great way to indulge healthily. Enjoy!
