  1. Coat a muffin tin in coconut oil or even better use a silicone one.
  2. In a food processor, grind oats till you have a flour-like consistency.
  3. Add in salt, vanilla, and dates. Process until you have a clumpy mixture. Add water and process un
    il the mixture looks like cookie dough.
  4. Press mixture onto the bottom of your lined tins and put in the freezer.
  5. In the same food processor, combine all the ingredients for your caramel. Process till creamy and t
    hen evenly spread on your chilled base layer. Place tin back in the freezer.
  6. Prepare your chocolate. Combine coconut oil in a sauce pan and begin to heat slowly till all the oil is melted. Remove from heat. Add the remaining chocolate coating ingredients and whisk together. Grab your tin out
    f the freezer, pour the chocolate over each caramel base, then put back in the freezer.
  7. You should wait about 3 hours for everything to harden a bit more but we couldn’t wait that long (#BadChocolateCravings) and so we dug into these after about 45 minutes – they were still easy to eat and delicious!
