Caramel Sauce!

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
Would you try whipping up this sweet treat?
