Raw Salted Caramel Rose Slice
This raw salted caramel rose slice is quite honestly the best thing I’ve made recently. Crunchy, nutty, salty base? Check. Creamy, gooey, sweet, buttery caramel center infused with rose? Check. Salted chocolate top layer shell? Check. Next level flavour bomb? Checkmate.
This recipe is super simple, and incredibly versatile. It’s so healthy that you could have it for breakfast. #chocolateforbreakfast In fact, it tastes just as good even if you make substitutions. The sky’s the limit and as long as you keep the ratios you’re good to go.
Some of my favourite substitutions include:
Swapping the coconut oil for grass fed butter
Swapping the activated sunflower seed butter for activated (sprouted) almond butter (or any nut butter)
Using dried figs instead of medjool dates (dried figs are the unsung heroes of raw baking, tbh)
Using shredded coconut instead of hemp seeds for the base layer
Using raw local honey instead of maple syrup as a sweetener
Using any of your favourite nuts or seeds as the base
Ditching the maple syrup if you’re watching your blood sugar
Don’t worry: this is not your average granola hippie recipe and it tastes nothing like the trail mixes of the 90s.
Not to mention this recipe is (say it with us): vegan, paleo, gluten free, dairy free, low carb, and refined sugar free. Drooling much?

Raw Salted Caramel Rose Slice
- bread loaf pan
- unbleached biodegradable parchment paper
- 1/2 cup organic activated raw almonds
- 1/2 cup organic activated raw cashews
- 2 tbsp organic hemp seeds
- 1 pinch organic Ceylon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 3 organic Medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tsp organic vanilla
- 1 tbsp spring or filtered water
- 1 cup organic raw activated sunflower butter or other nut/seed butter
- 3 tbsp organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil
- 1 dropper Wild Bloom Botanicals rose tincture
- 2 tbsp organic maple syrup
- 1 tbsp organic vanilla
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Homemade chocolate topping
- 1/2 cup organic cacao butter
- 1/3 cup organic coconut butter
- 1/4 cup organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil
- 1 tbsp organic maple syrup
- 1/2 cup raw Wild Bloom botanicals cacao powder
- 1 scoop grass fed collagen optional
- Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside. Make the base. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, lightly toast and stir the almonds and cashews until fragrant, or place them in the toaster at 175°C/350°F for 5-10 minutes (be careful and keep an eye on them as they burn quickly).
- Place the almonds, cashews, hemp seeds, cinnamon and sea salt into the food processor and blend to reduce to a fine crumble. Add the dates, vanilla, and filtered water. Blend to combine until the mixture turns into a sticky crumble. Scoop the crumble onto the bottom of the loaf pan and press it in. Pop it into the freezer briefly while you make the filling.
- Make the caramel filling. In the food processor, add the sunflower seed butter, coconut oil, rose tincture, maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt. Blend to combine into a smooth paste. Remove the loaf pan from the freezer and spread the nut butter paste evenly on top of the base layer. Return the pan to the freezer to harden.
- Make the topping. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat or double broiler, gently melt the cacao butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, cacao powder, and collagen, if using. Remove the pan from the freezer and spread the chocolate evenly over the caramel layer. Return the pan back to the freezer until the slice hardens, about 30 minutes. Thaw, slice and serve!
- For the chocolate topping, you could also use 1/2 cup refined sugar-free raw dark chocolate bars (no lecithin or fillers) melted with 1 tbsp coconut oil and a big pinch of flaky sea salt.
- Store any unused portions in the refrigerator—if you even have any, that is.
- For longer term storage, place in a sealed glass or silicone container in the freezer for 3-6 months.
