Delicious crunchy treats that are made using healthier ingredients! These vegan chocolate caramel crunch bars are the perfect weekend treat!
Made with dates, tahini, protein crispies and dark chocolate, these bars make a tasty healthier substitute to things like brownies and cake when you’re craving a bit of chocolate. I used protein soy crispies instead of rice crispises to bump up the protein content and add a delicious crunch!
I topped the bars with a layer of smooth dark chocolate to make them a little more indulgent, but you can leave the chocolate out if you want to make them lighter or reduce the calorie count.
The ‘caramel’ is made up of a simple blend of dates and tahini with a pinch of salt to enhance the flavours. They’re so yummy and they’re no-bake meaning they’re so easy to make! Not bad for a dessert that only calls for 6 ingredients!
I created this recipe using ingredients I got from Koro. They have an amazing range of vegan ingredients, snacks and treats. You can get the Medjool dates, dark chocolate, tahini and soy cocoa crispies from their site. You can also get 5% off when using my discount code NADIA5 at the checkout!
