Ever since I made my pecan pie I’ve been mulling over using that recipe as a basis for making a raw version of millionaire’s shortbread…and I finally did it!
I’ve made this many times over the past few weeks, tweaking ingredients in all 3 layers to get it right, my kids have loved getting to eat all my experimenting!!
And I thought I’d share this recipe now as they will make a wonderful Valentines day treat for the people you love – delicious, decadent, and a lot healthier than the traditional variety 🙂
The raw base is a protein packed mix of pumpkin seeds and ground almonds, sweetened with dates and held together with coconut oil. The almond butter ‘caramel’ is also sweetened entirely with dates and is a blissful sticky layer of yumminess. For the chocolate topping I melted dark chocolate chips made with coconut sugar, but of course you can use any chocolate of your choosing for this.
My whole family loves this sweet treat, and a tray of this gets eaten very quickly in our house!
Apart from Valentines day I had to get these millionaire bites on the blog as my wonderful sister asked for the recipe in time for a birthday, and as she’s one of the best people in the whole world it was a must! Definitely a great excuse to get out the food processor and blend up these mouthfuls of deliciousness…I hope you love them too 🙂
