Caramel Topping



  1. Line a 9X9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Turn 1 cup rolled oats and 1/2 cup pitted dates into a fine flour using a food processor.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl, incorporate the rest of the ingredients from the "Base" section and mix thoroughly with your hands. The dough should be very thick.
  4. Press the dough into your baking pan.
  5. Refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes.


  1. Meanwhile, process all of the ingredients from the "topping" section into a food processor.
  2. Spread evenly over the base.
  3. Freeze for about an hour.
  4. Cut into bars.

Recipe Notes

*Use plant-based for the vegan version. Reduce the amount of oat flour to 1/2 cup if doing so (1 1/2 cup rolled oats total). 

The amount of moisture absorbed by the protein powder used might differ slightly from brand to brand. If too moist, add more protein powder, if too dry, add more almond milk. The dough should be very thick as this is a no-bake recipe but still hold together.
