IT'S PANCAKE DAY TOMORROW! We often get asked to share the recipes we post so in celebration of pancake day, we thought we would start with this salted almond and date caramel recipe. Don't feel the need to limit yourself to only using it as a pancake topping though- this little number can be eaten with just about anything. Spread it on toast, pipe it on top of a raw cheesecake, make truffles and coat them with chocolate or just straight out of the jar with a big spoon (our personal favourite). With only five ingredients and a processor needed you'll be a much happier person in no time at all.
2 cups dates
1/4 cup roasted almond butter
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp raw vanilla powder
1 tsp salt
1. Soak your dates in warm water for 15 minutes
2. Drain your dates and pop them in the food processor or high speed blender
3. Process the dates for a few minutes
4. Add the almond butter, milk and salt and blend until smooth.
Make sure you regularly scrape down the sides.
Voila! You now have a delicious caramel spread. Bottle it up and store in the fridge for up to a week.
