When it comes to sugary treats, I go through phases. I can get by for months without them, then suddenly I’m like a crazy person — hoarding chocolates, lollies and sweet biscuits in the pantry and glove compartment of my car — don’t judge!
I recall a fairly reputable personal trainer once saying “everything in moderation”, so I decided to apply this mantra to my cravings. I also figured that ‘sugary treats’ didn’t have to mean ‘sugar coma’ and I went in search of recipes that could satisfy without leaving me in a state of loathing after eating.
This low-sugar caramel slice recipe certainly fits the bill. Rolled oats, dates, coconut milk and raw cacao powder are just some of what you’ll need to create these delicious bites.
