plant based gluten free sugar free caramel slice

Guilt Free Caramel Slice

guilt free caramel slices

This recipe is so addictive for the sugar free seekers.  It is made many times, therefore improved as we go & of course enjoyed due to the variety of taste buds sensations in one slice!  It has nutrition from nuts, natural sweetness from dates, protein and other goodies in chia seeds, and minerals in cacao.  This is another Thermomix recipe, however if you can figure out how to blitz dates properly without a Thermomix then well done!! and go for it!!  Go on give it a try…

Non Biscuit Base…

I use activated and dried nuts and seeds to help with better digestion of them, see this information under activated nuts and seeds for what on Earth I’m talking about for more clarity ;)…

  • 80g walnuts
  • 50g Brazil nuts
  • 40g pumpkin seeds
  • 30g linseed
  • 8 organic medjool dates (or 12 smaller dates)

1 dessert spoon of maca powder with just the linseeds 1st, blitz on speed 10 for 2 secs, as they don’t tend to grind fully, and help those who don’t wish to get linseeds in their teeth!  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on sp10 5 secs then turn down to sp5 for 25 secs.  Spread evenly and flatten into the base of an ovenproof glass dish/pyrex slice dish with the back of a metal spoon.

Guilt Free Fudge…

  • 50g chia seeds
  • 50g filtered water
  • For flavouring, we add 1-2 drops Young Living* spearmint oil (or Peppermint oil)
  • (*200g of medjool dates – to add after the above has been blitzed first)

Mix the first 3 ingredients on Speed 10, then add… *200g dates, then Blend sp6 1min.  Carefully, that is very gently and slowly, to avoid mixing it all together, spread ontop of base with a damp metal spoon.

Cacao Topping…

  • 30g cacao powder
  • 20g carob powder
  • 20g coconut oil
  • 85g water

Blend slowly up to sp4 1min, then spread carefully on the top of the slice & voila!  Best to put it in the fridge to let set if you can wait, or it will be a little gooey straight away but still goooood!

Sugar Free Chocolate Topping Alternatives…

Another option to the cacao topping is to use my “chocolate” recipe for a more crunchier sink your teeth into experience. Melting cacao butter, then adding in cacao powder and carob powder (I find the carob nicely lightens and sweetens it up) with the coconut oil and drizzling on top until it is firm. The amount depends on how much chocolate you wish to go on top, I always say, moderation, as the saying goes… too much of anything can lead to the need to detox even though it is the healthier option!…


Grab about half a cup of organic cacao nibs, add half a cup of carob powder, 1 heaped tablespoon of organic coconut oil, and 1/4 -1/2 cup of filtered water, depending on the consistency your are aiming for and blitz in a good blender, then spoon and smooth it on top.

Whatever choice of topping you choose… enjoy biting through the different layers during an essential rest time with a nice cup of herbal tea.

Cup of love
