These babies are 100% AIP-friendly and there is a secret ingredient in these Matcha Caramel Slices. A trick for unsuspecting players. A sneaky little boost of goodness that will leave even the most muggle-like* AIP-eater in the dark…
Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend!
Yep. Hidden veggies! Perfect for little people’s lunch boxes!
And, of course – because they’re nut-free, they’re playground compliant, too!
Shhhhh! I won’t tell if you don’t!
While a POWER Green Smoothie is the more traditional, and perhaps even obvious way to enjoy The Paleo Mom’s Veggie Blend collaboration with Vital Proteins, I wanted to see if I could could get creative. The extra hit of 3 serves of veggies and 1 serve of fruit in this baby just calls out for hiding it in unsuspecting places…
Inspired by a recent visit from my 7-year old, veggie-hating – “I don’t like anything green!” – niece. This lunch-box filler was born.
My AIP muggle friend, Sally declared the Matcha Caramel Slice “a winner!”
The combination of carob and dates imparts a seriously good caramel flavour, and the matcha provides a foil for the hidden goodness in the slice…
(2 hours refrigeration req.) Serves 12
- 18 (approx 280g / 10oz) Medjool dates - pitted and roughly chopped
- ⅓ cup carob powder
- ⅔ cup diced tigernuts
- 1 tablespoon matcha powder
