The perfect healthy treat, that's full of flavor, great nutrition and free from dairy, refined sugar and gluten. These plant based caramel squares are the perfect energy snack!
Place the activated buckwheat grouts into the food processor and process for about a minute just to help break them down a bit.
Press the mixture down into a lined baking dish. I used a 20cm x 30cm size dish. Rub a bit of coconut oil on your hands to help avoid the mixture sticking to your hands whilst pressing down.
Place into the freezer while you make the caramel topping.
Soak the regular pitted dates in some boiling kettle water for a couple of minutes to soften.
Add them to a food processor, along with the coconut oil and salt and blend until a thick caramel topping forms. You may need to scrape down the sides a few times.
Spread the caramel topping over the buckwheat base and place into the freezer to set overnight.
Remove from freezer and allow to thaw for a few minutes - this will make it easier to slice.
Slice into squares, and store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 week. Remove and thaw for a few minutes before eating.
Use Organic wherever possible
