    Method

    Base:

    Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until well combined.Gradually add the melted coconut oil and water to form a dough. You should be able to press the mix into a ball without it being too wet. Sprinkle into your pot ready for the next layer.

    Salted Caramel:

    Blend dates, nut butter, salt and 1/2 cup of the date water in a high powered blender or food processor until smooth. Add superfoods if using, then gradually add the melted coconut oil. Pour on top of your crumble and leave to set in the fridge.

    'Milk' Chocolate Mousse:

    Blend until silky smooth and whipped. Pour on top of your salted caramel.

    Serve adorned with blueberries, raspberries and candied nuts on top.
