Caramel slice is an extremely popular dessert snack that can easily be whipped up or pre-purchased at your local cafe. BUT, the downside is that this oh-so-tasty treat generally has a heck of a lot of sugar and fat lurking within its gooey interior. Lucky for us, food blogger @cleaneatingsurvivalguide has created her own raw caramel slice recipe, minus the nasties, and is sharing it with SHESAID readers!

Speaking about the inspo behind the recipe, she said: “What if i told you this caramel slice recipe involved no flour, butter or refined sugar? I created this recipe to show that eating healthy does not have to be boring and you can still indulge too!”
