Healthy Millionaire Shortbread

August 6, 2017



I know I say this about every recipe, but these healthy millionaire shortbread are delicious AF. They’re super straightforward and the combination of the gooey date caramel against the crunch of the chocolate as you take a bite is just heavenly. They make the perfect treat for afternoon tea and are so much healthier than the ones you find in your standard supermarket. Containing whole, plant-based ingredients, plus natural unrefined sugar that won’t crash your blood sugar an hour later.



Ingredients: makes around 6


1 cup of rolled oats

½ cup of cashews

1 tsp of lucuma or maca powder

6 tbsp of almond butter


Date Caramel

12 pitted medjool dates

A pinch of sea salt

A dash of warm water


200g dark chocolate



Start by combining the base ingredients in a food processor until soft dough forms that holds together well. Pour out into a lined baking tray and spread out evenly (around one centimetre thick). Press all the mix down firmly so it is tightly packed and place in the freezer while you make the second layer.


The date caramel is so easy to make. Place all the pitted dates into a food processor with a dash of warm water and sea salt and blend until smooth. You can then spread this onto the base layer with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer for an hour or so until firm. Once set, melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot, simmering water. You can then pour this final layer out over the top of the caramel, placing back into the freezer to further set.


I’d give the millionaire shortbread a good few hours before slicing into little squares; otherwise the caramel tends to move under the chocolate (the reason why mine look a little messy!). Share with your friends and try your very hardest not to eat the entire batch in one go, however tempting it may be.
