Tahini Caramel Slice


2 hrs depending how firm you want your slice



Tahini Caramel Slice

This slice is low GI due to ingredients like coconut syrup, mesquite, pecans and cashews. This means you get a sustained release of energy as opposed to high GI foods (such as refined sugar) causing spikes and crashes in energy levels.

Cashews and pecans are a great source of fibre and protein. The high fibre and protein content provides you with a sense of feeling full. Teamed with low Gi ingredients, you won’t feel the need to devour the entire tray, nor will you feel sick after consuming this delicious caramel slice.



1 cup pecans

½ cup cashews

½ cup dates

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp of flaked coconut

Optional – add activated buckwheat or cacao nibs for crunch.

Caramel Filling

1/3 cup tahini

½ coconut syrup

1/3 cup coconut oil

3 tsp mesquite

¼ cup smooth cashew butter or peanut butter

Pinch salt

Dark Chocolate Layer

3 tbsp cacao powder

1 tbsp cacao butter

½ cup coconut oil

¼ cup of coconut sugar or any sweetener your choice such as organic raw sugar ( you can add more if you like your chocolate layer to be sweet)

Pinch salt


  • Line a square baking dish with baking paper and set aside.
  • In your blender, combine base ingredients and blend until a sticky mixture is formed. You may need to add 1 tbsp of water but be sure not to add too much.
  • Press base mixture into square baking dish firmly, and place in freezer to set.
  • Clean your blender.
  • Melt the coconut oil over a low heat.
  • Combine coconut oil and remaining caramel filling ingredients in your blender, and on a slow-medium speed combine until smooth. This won’t take very long.
  • Pour over base evenly, and place back in the freezer for 1 hour or until the caramel is set
  • In a saucepan over a low heat combine chocolate ingredients until melted or melt in a bowl over boiling water (safer)
  • Pour over caramel filling and place back into freezer.
  • Should take about 2 hours to set depending on how firm you want your slice.

Cut it with a sharp knife into desired squares. You can put your knife in a hot water which will cut the slice easier. Or leave the slice outside the fridge / freezer to soften. If the caramel slice is too firm, it may result in breaking the chocolate layer while cutting.
