Caramel Cups


This recipe is dangerously delicious – try not to eat all the caramel out of the bowl before you pop into the cups (I struggle with that)! Although they may not be the prettiest of desserts, they will be sure to kick that sugar craving!

PS. You don’t have to be a vegan Nigella to perfect these!

1 cup of dates

1 cup of walnuts

3 tbls shredded coconut

2/3 cup almond spread


For crust:

  • Soak dates in hot water for 5 minutes and scoop out the dates from the hot water and pop them in the processor until crushed. If you do not own a processor (you should buy one!) you can also pop dates/walnuts on a chopping board and crush with a rolling pin.
  • Add walnuts, coconut and chia seeds to mixture and process.
  • Spray circular cupcake tray with baking spray and scoop a tablespoon of mixture and press down firmly leaving a well for the caramel and pop in the fridge while you prepare caramel.
