Gluten-free Recipes Vegan

Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut blossom sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder

For the Caramel Filling:

  • 3/4 cup coconut blossom sugar
  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla (optional)

For the Topping:

  • 3 1/2 ounces vegan 70 percent dark chocolate

Preparation

  1. To prepare the crust, preheat the oven to 390°F.
  2. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well, then put it into a baking dish with parchment paper. Or just grease the dish with a little bit of coconut oil. Bake this for about 20 minutes.
  3. After 10 minutes of baking the crust, combine all the ingredients for the caramel layer in a saucepan over medium head. Bring the caramel ingredients to a slow boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and creamy, about 5-10 minutes. Pour the caramel over the baked crust.
  4. While the caramel is setting, melt the chocolate in a microwave, and pour it over the caramel.
  5. Place the pan in the refrigerator to cool, then slice the bars, and serve.

Seems a bit silly making it unnecessarily expensive/difficult to find the ingredients. Not many people will be familiar with coconut blossom sugar and it reinforces that misconception that being vegan is inconvenient, expensive and involves eating strange things.
