Cashew & Pepita Caramel Slice Recipe

Serves: 10 slices

Time: 20mins


  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup organic butter, melted (or coconut oil)


  • 2 cups dates (soaked for 10mins in warm water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup raw pepitas





Pre heat the oven to 200 C.
Combine all filling ingredients to create a crust. You may need to add a little extra almond meal or melted butter to form the dough like consistency of the crust.
Press the crust into a lined baking tray or loaf tin to be around 1cm thick.
Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes while you make the filling.
Once baked, allow to cool!



In a blender or food processor, combine the dates and vanilla to create a smooth, thick caramel filling.
Then add the cashews and pulse a few times to chop into rough peices through the caramel.
Spread the filling evenly over the base.



Sprinkle the cashews and pepitas over the top of the caramel.
Bake for a further 6-8 minutes or until the cashews are lightly golden.
