I definitely have a sweet tooth! This is an awesome quick (like 2 minutes!) and easy recipe for caramel i came across that is also Paleo. The best part though is it requires no heat and no equipment to whip up this delicious treat.
2 Tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
2 Tablespoons almond butter
1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup (depending on the sweetness you want)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Sea salt (pinch)
Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl and you are done! Now you can top your favorite fruit or dessert and turn it into a tasty treat. It is also great for dipping sliced apples into. What I like best about this sauce is that it travels great, pack it in a school lunch or take it with you to work for a sweet fulfilling 3 pm boost!
Here i fancied up a simple apple by slicing it thin (yes that's only 1 apple), topping it off with caramel sauce and macadamia nuts. I also sometimes use walnuts.
It is easy to store too. Just place your caramel in a glass jar or storage container and it store in your cupboard or pantry. I keep mine in a recycled glass jar.
Tip: you can replace the maple syrup with honey or any other natural sweetener
