Ingredients (makes approx 16 slices):
Nutty base
½ cup almond flour (ground almonds)
½ cup walnuts
3 tbsp coconut nectar
¼ cup raw cacao powder

Crunch layer
1 cup almond flour
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp coconut nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Gooey caramel layer
3 cups pitted dates
2 tbsp coconut milk (or almond milk)
2 tbsp coconut butter
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)

Chocolate topping
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
¼ cup raw cacao powder
¼ cup coconut nectar

What to do:

  1. Line a square or rectangle baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place all nutty base ingredients into a food processor and blend well.
  3. Place the base ingredients in the tray and firmly press down. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.
  4. Repeat again for the crunch layer—place all the ingredients into the food processor and blend.
  5. Place the crunch mixture in the tray on top of the nutty base and firmly press down. Place the tray back in the freezer while you work on your next layer.
  6. Place all the gooey caramel ingredients in your food processor and blend until it looks like one big gooey blob of dough.
  7. Pour the caramel mixture into the tray and even out using a spatula. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your final layer.
  8. Combine all ingredients together in a mixing bowl until you have a smooth consistency. Pour evenly over the slice and freeze overnight or for at least 4 hours (this is where patience prevails…)

Use a warm, sharp knife when you come to cut your shortbread to ensure your slices cut clean.
