YUUUUMMMMM. These are pretty plain to look at but the flavour is unreal. They are oh-so-gooey, sweet, and easy to grab as you're about to start a workout or head out the door. Or at any moment. Of course, they're also good for you. Mostly just dates, nut butter and a scoop of an awesome organic vegan superfood blend called Nourish.

Ingredients Caramel layer: 1 cup gooey dates 2 tablespoons water 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder Chocolate layer: 1/4 cup walnut butter 1 scoop Nourish 1 teaspoon water, if needed
Directions To make the caramel: pit the dates then mash them with the water and vanilla until you get a thick caramel-y mixture. You NEED gooey dates for this, otherwise: try soaking drier dates in water until they get more moist. Press this mixture into cupcake papers or a small lined baking pan.
To make the chocolate: stir all the ingredients together until smooth. If your walnut butter is very thick, you will have to add some water. Otherwise: use any other nut or see butter you have that is liquid-y. I like Prana Bio nut butters for this. Scoop this mixture on top of the caramel layer and freeze until solid (a couple hours at least).
