RAW CHIA BERRY & CARAMEL SLICE
I looooove raw slices, the taste, the texture and... they are usually so simple and effortless to make (compared to some baking and time consuming prepping cooked meals can take)
With these slices, the instructions are simple and repetitive, as long as you have all these superfood little ingredients, and high speed blender.. you're good to go!
* I actually used a nutrient bullet.. not ideal, but adding extra liquid and a few inpatient shakes of the blender and we where sweet!
base layer ingredients ;
1 cup almonds
2/3 cup buckinis
2/3 cup coconut flakes
4 dates, pitted and soaked in warm water
1/4 tsp salt
Caramel filling ;
1 1/4 cup medjool dates, pitted (about 14 dates)
1/3 cup almond butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/3 cup cacao powder
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Chia jam recipe you can find here
Add the base layer ingredients to the food processor/blender. Blend.
Line a baking bread loaf pan with non-stick baking paper. Press mixture into the base of the pan and spread evenly. If the dough is sticking to your hands, dab them lightly with cold water. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place into freezer while you make the caramel filling.
repeat step 1 & 2 with the caramel ingredients.
for the chocolate topping, in a small mixing bowl, pour in the *melted* coconut oil, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, mix well and add the salt. it should a thickish sauce constancy, you may need to add more coconut oil or cacao powder until you get desired texture.
take the pan out of the freezer, pour over the chocolate topping, spread evenly, put it back in the freezer while you make the chia jam recipe.
Repeat process and apply the thick chia jam for the very last layer.
pop it back into the freezer for an hour or so, until the chocolate sauce and jam has hardened. remove from freezer and slice into squares or rectangular slices, best served cold
