A paleo caramel slice
Author: 
Recipe type: Paleo
 
This is the holy grail of real food treats; its raw, vegan and only made with whole food ingredients but it tastes just like the additive and sugar filled version you can buy at your local bakery. What’s great about this is that it is actually super easy to make and really quick. I even surprised myself how quick and easily it all came together. It’s fool proof. If you want to wow your buddies or introduce them to a more whole food way of living, whip this up to share. Your guests will be raving on about it for days!
