Finally! A no-bake caramel slice that tastes even better than it looks!
We associate many foods with health and fitness, but caramel slices are generally not some of the first examples that spring to mind. After you read this amazing high protein, no-bake recipe for vegan caramel slices however, you may think differently. Generic caramel slices you see in grocery stores are loaded with refined sugars, trans fats, and other artificial ingredients that do the body far more harm than good.
These vegan no-bake caramel slices however, are nothing like the ones you see on grocery store shelves, and they taste even better. Packed full of vegan protein powder which helps to promote cellular health and function along with muscle growth and repair, these are the ultimate post-workout snacks. Enriched with ingredients such as almond milk, oat flour, dark chocolate, antioxidant-rich cacao powder and wonderful peanut butter, these delicious treats taste amazing, are simple to make, and are guilt-free.
Enjoy before a workout, after a workout, or simply on the sofa in front of the fire when you’re craving something decadent and delicious.
Perfect for: Snack (makes 6)
- 1 scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 scoop of vegan salted caramel protein powder
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/4 cup almond milk ** you can replace the peanut butter with any nut butter of your choice
- 1 scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder

** May need to add a bit of almond milk here if the mixture seems too dry
Line a tupperware container with non-stick paper - I used a square container that was 15 x 15cm.
Starting with the base layer, make the each layer one at a time by mixing the ingredients together until a soft “dough” forms. Spread each layer evenly container and put it into the fridge whilst you make the subsequent layer.
Once you have done all three layers, allow the slide to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until firm before slicing.
