  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter*
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar**
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Place all ingredients into a pot over the stovetop and bring to a boil, stirring so that everything is combined.
  • Once mixture starts boiling, turn heat on low and simmer mixture for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • After 25 minutes, stir the caramel continuously for the remaining 5 minutes, allowing it to thicken.
  • Pour caramel in a jar or container and allow it to cool; this will help the caramel thicken up a bit too.
  • Enjoy!
