Caramel Date and Walnut Slice

Caramel Date and Walnut Slice

These Caramel, Date and Walnut Slice are rich, sweet, caramelly and insanely delicious. A truly decadent treat – and sooooooooo easy to make!!!!



Sometimes my sweet tooth cries out for something quick, simple and yummy. Today was one of those days and as I scrambled for ideas this sweet, wonderful little bar popped into my head – and boy does it tick all the boxes!


It was so much fun and so easy making a healthier version of a Caramel, Date and Walnut Slice. The date combined with the coconut sugar (like you’d use in a Sticky Toffee Pudding – ooooooo Sticky Toffee Pudding) already has that amazing caramel flavour.


Throw in a few walnut or pecan nuts – they both work beautifully in this slice – and there you have it a little slice of caramel, date and walnut food heaven!


In fact right now the whole house is full of a sweet delicious smell that promises one amazing slice that is making everyone feel hungry!! (I have this batch on lockdown until I have photographed them for you in the morning!!!)


It is a truly easy bake – just one bowl and your baking pan – ah yes – and it saves on washing up too!!!!


This Caramel, Date and Walnut Slice is an easy, scrummy, yummy slice that is so worth making – I promise it won’t disappoint! :)
