This sauce recipe is really straightforward; it takes less than 20 minutes to make this decadent sticky sauce. It's salty, sweet, and perfect for adding character to vanilla ice cream and baked oatmeal.

Salted Caramel Sauce [Vegan]


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter


  1. Place sugar and water in a pot over medium heat. Gently cook, stirring gently, as the sugar dissolves.
  2. Eventually, the sugar will melt, then solidify again, then finally melt again. On the second melt it will quickly turn to a dark caramel color — keep your eye on it. Turn the heat down if caramelizing too quickly — stir to combine all lumps.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Gently add both the vegan butter and coconut cream and stir to combine.
  5. Return to heat and allow to boil for a minute or so. During this time, the caramel will bubble up the sides of the pot fairly aggressively.
  6. Remove from heat and add salt. Once cooled, taste the sauce, and add more as required.


Yields 1 1/2 cups.
