The most deliciously guilt-free healthy & raw salted caramel slice. Three layers bursting with an oozy caramel filling and topped with sea salt sprinkled chocolate. 

Healthy and Raw Salted Caramel Slice

I’ve been wanting to make a raw salted caramel slice for ages now… but I always get distracted by other yummy things like my fave classic caramel slicemy no-bake caramello and honeycomb slice and the BEST salted caramel cheesecake slice. They’re kind of my go-to recipes. BUT!!! I am so freaking glad that I eventually got around to making this healthier caramel slice… because OMFG!

Healthy and Raw Salted Caramel Slice

First of all, let me start off by saying that when you try this raw salted caramel slice, there is no way you’re going to think that what you’re eating is actually healthy – but it seriously is! It tastes so incredibly decadent, has that same deliciously sweet flavour… but the caramel… the caramel is what makes this such a winner. Think oozy, gooey, creamy caramel with a hint of salt. Yep, it’s pretty much the best thing ever. Trust me, there’s no way you’ll believe that it’s made from dates, coconut oil and coconut milk (with a teensy bit of sea salt).

Ooh and that dark chocolate topping… ahhh!! It’s made from cacao, coconut oil and rice malt syrup and then sprinkled with sea salt. The sea salt really brings out the flavour of the chocolate and the caramel… making it the most insanely delicious raw salted caramel slice in the world!

There’s one main difference between this healthy caramel slice and my good old sugar-laden favourites. You’ll need to store this version in an airtight container in the freezer. I know that sounds a bit odd, but trust me! The slice wont freeze… in fact, the caramel will stay all sorts of deliciously gooey. But if you don’t keep it in the freezer, you’ll have an oozy caramel mess on your hands. And yep, you serve it straight from the freezer (so this isn’t the slice to pack for lunch at work or school). But it’s perfect for when you just want one little piece… especially when those late-night sugar cravings come a-callin’.

Being a total sugar-lover, I can’t believe I’m saying this… but I think this raw salted caramel slice is just as good (if not maybe even better) than my usual caramel slices. Don’t get me wrong, I still love those ones to bits – but there was something about the sweet and salty, creamy and chocolatey taste of this one that I LOVED!!!

But don’t take my word for it. This one is a must-make!!! Try it for yourself and see if you’re a fan of a raw salted caramel slice too?!

    WHERE DO YOU BUY MALT RICE SYRUP? HEALTH STORE OR COLES/WOOLIES?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yep at any supermarket! Usually in the health food section 🙂

  2. Amanda says:

    Hey do you think you could use organic maple syrup instead of rice malt syrup?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Amanda, I haven’t made it with maple syrup so I’m not sure if you’ll need to change the quantities slightly to get the right texture. 🙂
