  • 2 cans full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup (10oz/283g) maple syrup
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
  1. In a large saucepan with a heavy base, combine coconut milk, maple syrup, and salt.

  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add coconut oil and cook for another 5 minutes, or until it reaches a deep caramel color.

  4. Stir a little more often towards the end to keep the bottom from burning.

  5. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla, then pour the caramel into a bowl and let it cool for about 5 minutes.

  6. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for about 2 weeks. To reheat bring to a bubble over a double boiler.
