These Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cups are so decadent! A crumbly almond flour base, smooth and creamy vanilla flavoured cheesecake filling is all topped with a layer of salted caramel and pecans. They are so easy to make, can be prepared 3 to 4 days in advance and travel well.

In a bowl combine all of the ingredients for the base and stir until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly between the four cups and press down with your fingers to ensure its firmly packed in.
In a high speed blender or food processor combine all of the ingredients for the cheesecake and blend until completely smooth. Taste the filling and adjust the flavours if you prefer it to be more sweet or tart.
Pour the filling evenly between the four cups and transfer them to the fridge to help the filling become firm.
In a sauce pan on medium heat melt the honey, coconut cream and coconut oil. Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower the heat and let it gently simmer for 10 minutes stirring regularly.
After 10 minutes add in the vanilla extract, salt and pecans and stir. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Alternatively you can transfer it to the fridge to speed up the cooling.
Once the caramel is cool, evenly distribute it between the 4 cups. Store the cups in the fridge for a minimum of an hour to allow the caramel to become firm.
