  • 1/2c almonds
  • 1/2c Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2T coconut oil
  • 3T raw cacao powder
  • 2T raw honey

Caramel Pecan Layer:

  • 1c Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2c coconut oil
  • 3T tahini
  • 1t vanilla

  • 1/4c chopped pecans

Top Layer:

  • 1/4c coconut oil
  • 1/4c maple syrup
  • 1/4c raw cacao powder
  • 1/4c chopped pecans


  • To make the base first, pulse dates, almonds, coconut oil, raw cacao, and honey in the food processor into a crumble. Press this mixture into a lined slice tin, pressing down until smooth. Place in the freezer while you create the middle layer. 
  • To make the caramel pecan layer, place dates, coconut oil, tahini, vanilla, and raw honey in the food processor. Process until smooth. Add in the chopped pecans and pulse lightly.  You want the nuts to be throughout the mix. 
  • Pour the caramel pecan layer on top of the base, smooth this layer and return to freezer to set. 
  • Mix together the melted coconut oil, raw cacao, and sweetener until smooth. 
  • Once the caramel pecan layer is fully set, top with the chocolate layer and chopped nuts. Return to the freezer. 
  • To serve, remove from freezer and slice while still frozen. 

Notes: Standard slice tin size 27cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm / 11 in x 7 in x 1 ½ in
