Once you try these gluten-free, vegan friendly Millionaire’s Bars you’ll regret not having the recipe sooner!
As if a shortbread cookie, better-for-you caramel and dark chocolate weren’t enough, these Millionaire’s Bars feature complementary flavors of maple syrup, vanilla, almond butter and sea salt for a gluten free and vegan friendly dessert that is sure to remind you of a Twix bar.
Mix your dry ingredients, Organic Shortening and maple syrup together using a food processor and bake until golden brown. While your shortbread cools, mix together your favorite nut butter, we recommend one of these energy inducing MCT infused nut butters, tahini, maple syrup, vanilla, sea salt and Organic Coconut Oil to create the creamy and thick caramel layer.
After pouring this rich caramel sauce atop the cookie layer and setting aside in the refrigerator, you can melt your favorite dark chocolate or lather on a layer of Organic Chocolate Hazelnut Spread to complete your Millionaire’s Bars.
These Millionaire’s Bars are layered with nutrient-dense superfoods! The combination of coconut flour, refined coconut oil and plant-based organic shortening makes it the perfect guilt-free snack.
Our Organic Shortening is free of dairy, sweeteners, corn and soy. Instead our Organic Shortening is made from ethically sourced Organic Red Palm Oil and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. With a smoke point of 450°F, our Organic Shortening is ideal for baking and can easily replace other conventional shortenings in your favorite breads, pies and other baked goods.
Our Organic Shortening is free of trans fats and cholesterol while also being rich in vitamins A and E as well as lauric acid and antioxidants!
