  • 1/4 cup butter unsalted.*
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup.**
  • 2-3 Tablespoons date paste***.


  • In a small saucepan over medium low heat, melt butter then add maple syrup. Mix well and heat on low for 1 minutes.
  • Pour the syrup in a small blender bowl, I’ve used my chopper bowl.
  • Let it cool down for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the date paste and mix well.
  • Pour the syrup in a glass container and enjoy! ****


* You can use coconut oil for a complete vegan caramel.
** If you cannot get a hold of pure maple syrup or if it is too expensive in your area, honey would work nicely too. Brown rice syrup works well but the taste gets a little funky. Agave would probably work as well but will be a little sweeter.
*** Here is the link for date paste —> or simple soak some dates in hot water for about 15 minutes then peel, take the seeds off and smash a bit.
**** I haven’t tried refrigerating the caramel, I just kept it for 4 days at room temperature but I would say a week at most, it hardened a bit, but nothing that a quick round in the microwave could not fix. However, I highly recommend making it and then serving immediately, it’s the right consistency at that point.
