Date Caramel

  • 1 cup Medjool dates pitted
  • ½ cup Pure maple syrup
  • cup Sugar free natural peanut butter crunchy
  • ¼ cup Coconut oil melted


  • cup Cocao powder
  • cup Coconut oil melted
  • 2 tablespoons Pure maple syrup



  • Blitz the roasted almonds to a crumb in a food processor, then add the pitted dates, melted coconut oil and sea salt flakes. Blitz until a wet crumb is formed.
  • Line a rectangle loaf tin with baking paper (see note 3 for size). Press the crumb mixture into the base of the tin, using your fingers or the back of a spoon. If crumbs are sticking to your fingers, dampen them with a little water.
  • Set the base in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Date Caramel

  • In a clean food processor, place all the ingredients for the date caramel and blitz until combined and a thick caramel is formed.
  • Using two dessert spoons, spoon the caramel out over the base, so that it reaches all the sides of the tin, smoothing the top with back of spoon.
  • Set in the fridge for 4 hours

Chocolate Topping

  • Add the ingredients to a bowl or jug and whisk until all thoroughly combined. Once base and caramel are set (after 4 hours), pour over the chocolate topping. Refrigerate for 1 more hour until set.


  1. Storage:  Store slice in the fridge in an air tight container. It will keep for 1 week.
  2. Almonds: If you can’t buy roasted almonds, buy plain almonds, and roast them in the oven for 10 minutes at 180 degrees C, 320 degrees F.
  3. Tin Size:  I used a rectangle loaf tin 10.5 inches by 4.5 inches or in centimeters - 26.5cm by 11.5cm.
