Raw Chocolate Caramel Bars

Raw Chocolate Caramel Bars


  • Crust:
  • 1 cup almonds or other nuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • Caramel:
  • ½ cup cashew butter
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup dates
  • Chocolate cream:
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • ¼ cup preferred liquid sweetener


  1. To make the crust: process the almonds into flour in your food processor, then add the dates and process until it all begins to stick together. Press into the bottom of a lined baking pan (I used a small bread pan) and refrigerate.
  2. To make both the caramel and mocha layers: just blend the ingredients in each list until smooth. Feel free to add other flavours like vanilla, chili , ginger, etc. Spread the caramel onto your crust, followed by the chocolate cream. Refrigerate until completely set; this will take a couple hours.

Fairly simple recipe to enjoy such a decadent dessert!
