RECIPE

Choc Coated Caramel Cookie Dough Bar

Chocolate and caramel, there really is no better combination in the land of sweets. Add in a choc-chip raw cookie dough and you have yourself the most decadent, delicious, drool-worthy dessert this side of chocolate ice cream. 

The best part? These bad boys are healthy. That's right, the ooey gooey caramel is packed with nutrients from dates rather than empty calories from refined sugar. The cookie dough is made with fibre-rich oats and and protein-rich peanut butter. And the choc coating that wraps it all up in a neat little package? Loving Earth's revered dark chocolate, made from raw organically grown cacao beans that are choc full of antioxidants, minerals and zero cane sugar. 

In short, these Choc Coated Caramel Cookie Dough Bars are likely to be the most delicious thing you bake all year.

CHOCOLATE COATING

TOPPING

Method

  1. Chop loving earth dark chocolate into 2cm chunks.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, peanut butter, rice malt syrup and coconut oil. Once well combined, fold in the chocolate chunks. Line a square baking tin with parchment paper. Next transfer the cookie dough into the baking tin. Press down evenly by using your hands. Cover the baking tin and place it into the fridge or freezer.
  3. In a high-speed blender, combine the caramel ingredients. If dates are hard, place them into hot water for 10-15 min prior blending. Blend caramel ingredients until smooth.
  4. Take cookie dough out of the freezer and pour the caramel on top. Spread out evenly, using a spoon. Place the baking tin back into the freezer for 3-4 hours.
  5. Once caramel cookie dough bars have set, melt chocolate using the double boiler method. Cut bars into 9 equal pieces and dip those into the melted chocolate. Lay on parchment paper to set, then top with loving earth cacao nibs and crushed rock salt. You can store the bars in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
