No-Bake Vegan Caramel Bars

Updated: May 8

Vegan bars that are so decadent and tasty! They require no baking and can be prepared in no time! These caramel bars contain only wholesome ingredients and natural sweeteners.

The caramel bars consist of three layers: a crust, a homemade caramel layer and a chocolate cover. The sweetness of the caramel combines pleasantly with the bitterness of the chocolate. Moreover, the bars offer a variety of textures - from the chewiness of the crust, to the softness and the creaminess of the caramel, to the crunchiness of the chocolate.

  • 50 g almond flour

  • 50 g oat flour

  • 2 tbsp homemade caramel

For the homemade caramel:

  • 15 Medjool dates

For the crust:
