7 Layer Bars

7 LAYER BARS

I wanted to create my own version of the classic 7 layer bar. These are the perfect dessert to cure your sweet tooth guilt free.

INGREDIENTS: 

Crust:
1½ cups almond flour
2½ Tbsp maple syrup
cup refined coconut oil, melted


Caramel Sauce:
¼ cup refined coconut oil, melted
¼ cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp almond butter
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of JF Spicy Salt

 

Sweetened Condensed Milk:
1 (13.5oz) can unsweetened, coconut milk
cup maple syrup

TOPPINGS:

Unsweetened coconut flakes
Chocolate chips (I like Hu)
Cinnamon 

PROCESS:

Crust
Preheat the oven to 350°. Mix the almond flour, maple syrup, and coconut oil together in a bowl. Press the mixture evenly into a parchment lined square baking dish and bake for 14 minutes.

 

Caramel Sauce
While the crust is baking, whisk the coconut oil, maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract, and JF Spicy Salt together in a pan on low heat. Keep whisking until the mixture completely dissolves and becomes a sauce.

 

Sweetened Condensed Milk
In a separate pan, mix the unsweetened coconut milk and maple syrup together and bring to a boil.

 

Remove the crust from the oven and sprinkle unsweetened coconut flakes on top. Press the chocolate chips into the crust and add the caramel sauce. Pour a cup of the sweetened condensed milk on top of everything and bake for about 20 minutes.

 

Take the baking dish out of the oven and sprinkle extra coconut flakes, chocolate chips, and cinnamon on top. Let the mixture harden, putting it in the freezer will speed up this process. Once the mixture has hardened, cut it into squares and serve.
