While traditionally caramel is made with milk, butter, sugar, and vanilla, there are plenty of other ways to make it! Cashews, maple syrup, and coconut sugar all make for great ingredient alternatives. And as this recipe proves, so does almond butter! A combination of nutty almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and a dash of salt, this caramel has all the ooey gooey texture you could want! Drizzle on apple slices, pies, cookies, and whatever else you want to make more delicious.
Almond Butter Caramel [Vegan]
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon raw virgin coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons crunchy almond butter
- A generous pinch of salt
- Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, almond butter, and salt to a pan. Place the pan on high heat, and begin to stir the ingredients together as the mixture heats up and bubbles. Stir the mixture together for about 1-1 1/2 minutes, until the mixture has combined but is still quite runny.
- Then, remove the caramel from the heat, and continue to slowly stir it together for about 1 more minute until it has thickened. Drizzle it onto what you like and serve!
