Instructions
  1. For the first layer which is the nougat layer combine the almond butter and maple syrup or honey.

  3. Gradually add in the coconut flour mixing it frequently.
  4. Spread this into a prepared baking tin and place in the fridge to firm up.
  5. Meanwhile make your caramel layer by draining the soaked dates and adding to the bender or food processor along with the 1 tbsp of almond milk.
  6. Blend on a high power and gradually add in the almond milk.
  7. You may need less or more depending on how soft your dates are so add it in gradually.
  8. The thicker your caramel the better, you don't want a runny caramel as this will make it a bit messier to dip in chocolate.
