Paleo Salted Caramel Sauce (Date Sweetened)

We’re keeping things short and sweet today (literally) with this Paleo Salted Caramel Sauce! With fall recipes heating up I’ve been finding myself needing caramel on an almost weekly basis, so I felt it was about time I shared this caramel recipe with you. While the idea of making a healthy caramel with dates is nothing new, I’ve come up with a few tweaks throughout the years that I find make this dare caramel anything but ordinary.

Traditional caramel is made of sugar, butter, and cream, but that’s an ingredient trifecta that would leave me with joint pain for days. Thankfully this date caramel is all naturally sweetened and made with low-inflammatory ingredients, so it’s a winner if you have autoimmune concerns like me!

The Best Vegan/Paleo Date Caramel Sauce

The idea of making a vegan/paleo caramel sauce might sound a little intimidating but it’s actually the easiest thing ever. There are some vegan caramel recipes where you boil down coconut milk, but I find this one to be much easier. All you need is your dates, non-dairy milk, honey (agave or maple for vegan), and a food processor and you’re in business! You just blend everything until smooth and enjoy it however you please. Oh, and add a pinch of salt for a salted caramel vegan date sauce. Yaaassss.

You’ll have some leftover caramel sauce in this recipe which you can store covered in the fridge for up for a week.
