This tahini-based 5 ingredient vegan salted caramel sauce is smooth, creamy and perfect for drizzling.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup lite coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ½ - ¾ cup tahini
  • ½ tsp molasses, more or less to taste/preference
  • ¼ tsp sea salt, more or less to taste
Optional ingredients:
  • 1 - 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • about 1 tbsp coconut oil to thin if tahini isn't liquid enough
Instructions
  1. Add coconut milk, maple syrup and ½ cup tahini to a small saucepan and warm over medium heat, whisking occasionally until well incorporated, about 3 minutes
  2. At this point the caramel sauce will still be fairly liquid and milky. If you're okay with this texture, you can proceed. If not, whisk in up to ¼ cup more tahini until desired consistency is reached
  3. Taste and adjust sweetener as necessary then stir in molasses until well combined
  4. Remove from heat, stir in salt and vanilla extract if using and adjust salt to taste
  5. Pour into a mason jar and allow to cool to room temperature before covering and storing in the fridge
  6. Will keep for a couple weeks in the fridge
