•½ cup of chia gel (3 tablespoons of chia seeds with ½ cup+1 tablespoon of water)
•¼ cup + 3 Tablespoons of coconut milk 
1.Combine ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth. Note* as you mix, pause the food processor and scrape the edges to incorporate all of the ingredients into the batter.
2.In a greased 8×8 pan, or pan lined with parchment paper, Bake on 350 ° F for 10 minutes.

Note* The size of the dates vary, so you may need to add more or less depending on the spreadability of the caramel sauce. 
1.Soak the dates in warm water for about 15 minutes before mixing. This will add moisture and help the blending process.
