Raw Caramel Nougat Bars

This is basically a healthy version of a candy bar, what's not to love? 
It's made with whole dates, coconut flour, and dark chocolate, among other key stars, and you might want to make a double batch 'cause they'll go fast!! Indulge in dessert in the best way possible.

Serves 6.



1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup maple syrup (or raw coconut nectar)

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

1/4 tsp salt


2 cups dates, pitted

1/3 cup water

2 Tbsp sunflowerseed butter

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

7 oz. your favorite dark chocolate


In a food processor, mix together the nougat ingredients, then press in to a 9x5'' cake pan lined with wax paper. Place in freezer while you prepare the caramel.

Whiz the caramel ingredients together in the food processor until smooth. Using a spatula, smooth on to the nougat layer and place back in to the freezer for 1-2 hours. 

Cut in to bar shapes (or whatever shape you want), in preparation for their chocolate bath. 

In a bain marie, melt your preferred chocolate over low heat. Carefully dip each bar in to the chocolate and place on a wax paper-lined plate. When all are happily covered in chocolate, freeze for 20 minutes until set. 

*If you don't want to spend the time dipping individual bars, you could melt half the amount of chocolate and pour it on top of the frozen caramel layer, and make a raw layer pie instead.
