No-Bake Chocolate Orange & Caramel Slice
What’s great about these bars is that they happen to be dairy-free, vegan friendly and contain no refined sugar!
- For The Base
- 100g oat flour
- 50g oats
- 2 tbsp sweetener
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tbsp cold water
- For The Date Caramel Layer
- 100g Medjool dates or date paste
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Zest and juice of 1/2 an orange
- For The Chocolate Topping
- 100g dark chocolate, broken up into pieces
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- Extra orange zest
First make the base: Mix together the oat flour, oats and sweetener together in a bowl. Stir in the melted coconut oil, vanilla and enough water to form a dough (not too sticky or dry). Tip this into a lined tin or tub and use your hands to press evenly to cover the base. Freeze while you make the next layer.
Now place the dates/date paste into your Nutri Ninja Auto IQ blender along with the tahini, vanilla, orange juice and zest. Whizz up until you have a smooth, spreadable consistency (add a little water if too thick). Now spread this over the base to cover – you want a nice generous layer. Freeze for 30 minutes.
Finally, gently melt the chocolate and coconut oil then pour this over the date layer to cover. Place back in the freezer for at least an hour to set.
When ready to serve, carefully lift out from the tin/tub and place on a chopping board. Leave for 5-10 minutes to soften a little, then use a large sharp knife to cut into bars and sprinkle with orange zest. Now enjoy!
