Salted Caramel Crumb Bars

It doesn’t get better than this. Salted caramel crumb bars made with a crunchy base and topping with melted chocolate and a gooey caramel centre. These are easy to make with minimal ingredients and they're easy to throw together, even if you "can't bake".

caramel filling

1 c pitted dates*

1/3 c milk of choice

pinch of sea salt


1 c rolled oats*

1 c oat flour*

6 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp coconut sugar

4 tbsp boiling water

1 tsp vanilla extract

2/3 c dark chocolate chunks/ chips

Preheat oven to 200°C/ 390°F (180°C fan). Line an 8-inch square tray (or equivalent) with parchment paper and set aside.

Blend the dates, milk and salt in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, set aside.

Mix the coconut oil, sugar, water and vanilla extract in a bowl then add the oats and mix until well combined, the texture should be like a crumbly dough.

Press about two-thirds of the mixture into the base of the tray then spread the caramel on top. Scatter the chocolate then crumble the rest of the oats on top.
