Raw Salted Caramel Bars

raw salted caramel bars

These delicious bars of goodness contain only natural ingredients but ones which work together for an indulgent salted caramel flavour. Tahini is a great source of calcium, whilst the nuts and seeds provide excellent plant-based protein. I love reaching for these when I'm having a mid-morning slump.

Three great health benefits: good source of iron, beneficial for bone health, promotes healthy skin

Makes 12 bars
Keeps for approx 1 week refrigerated in an airtight container and freezes well for a couple of months

1 cup cashew nuts
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
9 medjool dates, pitted
1tbsp coconut oil (liquid)
2 tbsp Tahini 
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Generous pinch rock salt
4 tbsp shredded coconut

1) Line an 8 inch square tin with greaseproof paper
2) In a food processor, whizz the cashew nuts until finely chopped
3) Add the sunflower seeds, dates, coconut oil, Tahini, cinnamon and salt to the cashews in the food processor. Whizz in the food processor until the mixture comes together. 
4) Press the mixture firming into the tin. Top with the coconut and press down firmly again so that it all sticks together. Chill for approx 1 hour or overnight to set, then cut into bars.
