Gluten-free, Vegan, Sugar-free optional
A no bake dessert, snack or afternoon treat that leaves us feeling OH SO GOOD! Satisfies any sweet tooth and gives you a beautiful boost of energy!
Are you looking for an easy to make recipe, that is refined sugar-free and satisfying? Then the combination in this healthy treat will likely be one of your favorites! Cashews, combined with medjool dates gives you a rich caramel consistency and tastes sooooo good. Adding a layer of chocolate and sprinkle of sea salt and VOILA, you have a decadent dessert you will love.
3 Simple Ingredients!
That’s right, all you need for this recipe are cashews, medjool dates and chocolate (with a sprinkle of sea salt). I always use dairy-free chocolate chips and when I don’t want to use any sugar, I opt for Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips. The sprinkle of sea salt enhances all the flavors and makes it taste like sea salt caramel chocolate! They make your life easy with minimal ingredients and great for summer since you don’t have to turn on the oven. All you need is a food processor and microwave Who’s in??
Making the sea salt and caramel chocolate chew bars
If you don’t have a food processor, I think you can try to use a high speed blender, but if you can and are capable, investing in one is the BEST! I love it because it is perfect for blending up these bars and other similar recipes, like my Homemade Healthy Nutella, or my Homemade Vanilla Almond Cookie Butter, and it makes it so creamy and smooth! You can also use it to chop salads, make hummus and make pie crust! So versatile!
Do you like to keep things sugar-free? If so I recommend using Lily’s chocolate chips that are sweetened with stevia. They are the best, but if you prefer to simply use regular dark chocolate chips, go ahead!
I simply take all my ingredients and add them to the food processor. The longer you process the better the texture, and you do need to stop and scrap down the sides every minute or so to incorporate the ingredients. It will take around 5 minutes to get it perfect 🙂
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! xoxox
