    For the caramel

    For the bar


    1. Preheat oven to 350.

    To make the caramel:

    1. Drain the dates and add them to a blender with the almond butter. Blend for a minute. If the mixture is not smooth enough, add a few tablespoons of water. Once the mixture has reached a desired caramel-like consistency, add the sea salt, mix and set aside.

    To make the bar:

    1. In a medium mixing bowl , add the almond flour and baking powder. Mix together.
    2. In a large mixing bowl , add the softened coconut butter and maple syrup. Cream together for 1-2 minutes.
    3. Then add the flax egg and vanilla and mix.
    4. Lastly, add the dry mixture to the wet and blend until the batter comes together. If the batter looks a little dry, you can add 1 T of almond milk.
    5. Line an baking dish with parchment paper. Spoon 1/2 the bar mixture into the baking sheet and press flat.
    6. Spread the caramel mixture on top of that layer.
    7. Add the remaining bar mixture over the top.
    8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
    9. Let completely cool before trying to cut into bars. Keep this stored in the fridge. Enjoy!!

    1. I dried out the almond meal from making milk into fine, flour-like consistency. Can I use that for the flour in this recipe?
      1. Unfortunately, almond pulp does not always work in baking. I use it in energy bites, or when I want to add a extra protein to recipes. It would be best to use almond flour for this.
      1. How about using figs? Or you can use the caramel I use in this recipe.
    2. Hi. This looks an awesome recipe, great for my nieces and nephews - they do not like coconut so what butter alternatives would you suggest? (normal butter or a vegan substitute? ) Baking Blessings to you x
