Sorry, Did You Say ‘Healthy Caramel Slice?’…I’m In!!

Caramel Slice should be renamed ‘slice of heaven’ really shouldn’t it?  Well, imagine if you could take that culinary slice of heaven and replace all the ingredients with healthy, whole food, raw ingredients, and have it taste just as good!

Well, the wonderful team at Food Matters TV have done it again with this amazing Raw Pecan Caramel Slice.  They’ve even set the challenge:  “Make this and see if your friends and family even realise that it is a healthier version of the ‘oh-so-naughty’ caramel slice”.  I’m up for the challenge – are you?!

Honestly I don’t know why you’d buy store bought ones when you can have the best of both worlds – flavour and health – with this recipe.
