Posted on December 06 2016

This scrumptious recipe is from http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/made-over-millionaires-bars       They always have the best recipes to suit anybody!! What is also good is they give you all the nutritional info and also how much it would cost per serving in different supermarkets!
This is a very yummy cake and worth making! Especially with it being the christmas season and family will most likely be visiting, make this up and you can keep them in the fridge for up to a week.

You Will Need...

 

For the base

  • 150g cashew nuts

  • 50g rolled oat

  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted

  • 50g coconut oil, melted

For the filling

  • 350g pitted Medjool dates

  • 125ml unsweetened almond milk

  • 25ml maple syrup

  • 150g coconut oil

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the topping

  • 150g coconut oil

  • 5 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 2 tsp maple syrup


Method
  1. Grease a 20cm square cake tin and line with baking parchment.
  2. Tip the cashew nuts and oats into a food processer and blitz to crumbs. Add the dates and coconut oil, and blend again. Transfer to the tin and use a spoon to press the nutty mixture into a compact, even layer that covers the base. Chill while you prepare the filling.
  3. For the filling, add the dates, almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil to a saucepan with a generous pinch of salt and bring to a simmer. Boil for 2-3 mins until the dates are really soft, then tip into the blender, add the vanilla extract and blitz to a smooth purée. Add a little more salt if the mixture is too sweet. Pour over the nutty base and spread to the sides of the tin, getting the surface as smooth as possible. Chill while you prepare the topping.
  4. Gently heat the coconut oil in a saucepan until melted. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cocoa and maple syrup until there are no lumps. Cool for 10 mins, pour over the caramel layer and return to the fridge for at least 3 hrs or until firmly set. To serve, cut into squares. 
  5. Enjoy!!

Will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
