Apple Caramel Slice

Apple Caramel Slice

Ripe apples, rich caramel, juicy raisins and coconut oat crumble layered together to make one mouth-watering bar.


I usually try to keep my recipes simple but in the fridge I have a bag of apples that need using and ever since I figured out how to make an easy healthy caramel from sweetened condensed coconut milk I have been mulling over an idea for a caramel apple crumble slice.




For all you apple crumble lovers out there these truly are worth taking the time to make. Each layer adds flavour and depth to the final bar - these really are a decadent treat.



I find making the caramel sauce in advance really helps (I’ve put the recipe below) but don’t forget to save some to pour over the top and if you happen to have it in I’ve found a little of this coconut milk can make the perfect alternative to single cream. 



So here goes.......................................................

1 tbsp. Vanilla

3) Whilst cooking the base peel and dice the apples and in a bowl mix them together with the raisins.


4) In a separate bowl mix together all the ingredients for the topping.


Once the base has cooled it’s time to start layering!


5) Spread the apple/raisin mix evenly across the base and pour the caramel sauce over the top.


6) Then put the crumble topping mix over the apple and press it gently down.


7) Place in the oven for 40 -45 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.


8) Allow to cool thoroughly and place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs before slicing.
