Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour 112g
  • 3-4 tbsp coconut flour 21-28g
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp coconut butter 75g
  • ¼ cup maple syrup 70g
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup soft dates 165g
  • ¼ cup + 1 tsp browned coconut butter 65g
  • ¼ cup coconut cream OR plant-based milk 60g
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • tsp salt
  • 1 bar of dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F/165°C.
  • Mix the melted coconut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla together until combined. Then add in the almond flour and 3 tbsp of coconut flour. As your mixing, it feels "too wet", add in one more tbsp of coconut flour.
  • Press into a lined 6x6 inch baking pan and bake for 12-15 mins, or until the edges are lightly browned. Once out of the oven, allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • For the caramel, add the dates, melted browned coconut butter, coconut cream, vanilla, and salt into a blender and blend until smooth. Scrape down the sides if needed.
  • Pour the caramel over the biscuit and spread evenly using the back of a spatula. Place into the freezer for at least 1 hour.
  • Once out of the freezer, slice into 12 bars. Place them back into the freezer to firm up for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, melt down your chocolate coating. Line a tray with parchment paper.
  • Take the bars out of the freezer. Dip each bar into the chocolate coating using a fork and place onto the lined baking tray. The chocolate will harden quickly if your bars are still cold.
  • You can enjoy them right away or store them in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the fridge.
