Low Carb Caramel Sauce

1/3 cup natural cashew butter (you can use peanut butter but you must like peanut butter as flavour overtakes!)

  • 1/3 cup coconut butter
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tbsp natural granulated sweetener (you can also use honey/maple syrup)
  • Pinch of sea salt

1. In a saucepan over medium heat continuously stir all ingredients together

Optional- top with a good quality dark chocolate (be wary of sugar content, I like Pumpy Jackson and Well Naturally no sugar added!)
