Vegan Raw Salted Caramels

Some might say it is a stretch to call these caramels, but whatever they are called, they are mighty tasty and on the whole not bad for you! I'm a huge dessert person and almost always have a treat on hand so I'm always looking for recipes that are on the healthy side. These were very easy to make and last wonderfully in the freezer.

Homemade Chewy Vegan Salted Caramels

Prep time: 10 Minutes
Yield: 20-30 Salted Caramels
  • 10 Soft (Fresh and Pitted) Medjool Dates
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Natural Pure Almond Butter
  • 10 Drops Liquid Stevia (I used only 5)
  1. Place all ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth stopping to scrape down the sides (keep blending and scraping until the mixture is smooth and dough-like).
  2. Line a bowl with saran wrap and scrape caramel dough into it.
  3. Place in the freezer or refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  4. On your counter line your work area with parchment paper or saran wrap.
  5. Remove caramel dough from the refrigerator and using the saran wrap that already encasing the dough place on the counter and begin to smooth mixture into a rectangle as thick as you would like your caramels.
  6. Remove from saran wrap, place on your work space (lined with parchment) and using a sharp knife cut into 1 inch caramel bites.
  7. You can place the cut caramels into a parchment lined container or individually wrap them in wax paper to store.
  8. Sprinkle caramels with salt if you desire.
  9. Keep caramels in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to enjoy as there are no preservatives in this recipe.
  10. Enjoy!
