½ cup maple syrup
⅓ cup coconut milk
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ 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.
