• 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa
• 1 tbsp coconut oil

• 1/4 cup regular cream or coconut cream
• 1 cup packed coconut sugar

• 1 C. regular cream or coconut cream
• 1/2 C. Agave syrup (or more to taste)
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Extra
• Flaky sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

For the crust, place the oats in a food processor and grind to flour then add in the dates, cocoa and coconut oil. Pulse until you have a finely ground sticky mass.
Line a 8″/ 20 cm tart tin with a removable bottom, with parchment paper.
Press the crust filling into the tart tin, pressing firmly to get a solid crust. Place in the freezer while you prepare the rest.
For the caramel, In a sauce pan with a thick bottom, melt the butter and let it cook until it browns slightly and starts to smell like hazelnuts. Carefully add the cream, sugar and vanilla and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Remove from the heat.
Let the dark caramel cool for 15 minutes before spreading out over the crust. Return to the freezer.
For the Chocolate Truffle filling, Place chocolate in a glass bowl. In a saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add the agave syrup. Pour the cream over the chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Taste for sweetness, add more agave syrup if you like it sweeter.
Pour the chocolate over the caramel and freeze for a final 30 minutes, until just chilled and set. OR refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve. Before serving, sprinkle the top with Fleur De Sel or other flaky sea salt.

Enjoy!
