We might be biased, but this raw pecan caramel slice rivals any traditional caramel slice! The test is easy: make this and see if your friends and family even realize that it is a healthier version of the 'oh-so-naughty' caramel slice. 



Caramel Pecan Layer

  • 1 cup medjool dates (pitted) 
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil 
  • 3 tbsp tahini 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 2 tbsp raw honey 
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans 

Top Layer

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao or Food Matters Superfood Chocolate
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans 


  1. To make the base first, pulse dates, almonds, coconut oil, raw cacao and honey in the food processor into a crumble. Press this mixture into a lined slice tin, pressing down until smooth. Place in the freezer while you create the middle layer. 
  2. To make the caramel pecan layer, place dates, coconut oil, tahini, vanilla and raw honey in the food processor. Process until smooth. Add in the chopped pecans and pulse lightly.  You want the nuts to be throughout the mix. 
  3. Pour the caramel pecan layer on top of the base, smooth this layer and return to freezer to set. 
  4. Mix together the melted coconut oil, raw cacao and sweetener until smooth. 
  5. Once the caramel pecan layer is fully set, top with the chocolate layer and chopped nuts. Return to the freezer. 
  6. To serve, remove from freezer and slice while still frozen.
