This is a classic Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell raw food dessert recipe because no one will know or care that you didn’t slave away over the stove taking meticulous care not to over brown the butter sugar combo that comprises conventional caramel. Best of all, this is one of the easiest raw food dessert recipes you will every try because you simply put all the ingredients into a food processor and sit back & watch the caramel magic happen.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT” CARAMEL
½ cup coconut oil
1/3 cup almond butter
½ cup maple syrup
seeds from ½ a vanilla bean pod or 1 tsp vanilla
up to ¼ teaspoon salt (start with a pinch)
Blend all ingredients, starting with a ¼ teaspoon of the salt, in a food processor. Pulse until well combined, then let it process for several minutes. Taste to check salt level and add more if desired. The mixture will warm slightly in the processor and the textures will meld, eventually forming a gooey, delicious caramel.
Serve it with freshly sliced apples, as a topping for your favorite raw vegan brownies or to fill raw cacao truffles. It works for just about any sweet treat you want to serve up. I once asked my husband what I should wear to a party and his response was “your raw caramel”. I decided that outfit might work better for a night in, but perhaps you are more adventurous than me!
