Recipe: No Bake, Clean Millionaire Shortbread

This week I had some inspiration from ITV’s Lorraine “Free From February”. I love experimenting with recipes, especially clean treats as I have a sweet tooth myself! These RAW Millionaire’s Shortbread really caught my eye so I had a go.

I never stick to an exact recipe, I try to see what I think of the texture and taste as I’m going along. The recipe set is found here. I used all of the same ingredients in slightly random quantities and substituting maple syrup with agave syrup.

Step 1:

The base:

  • Gluten free OATS
  • Ground Almonds
  • Agave Syrup
  • Whole Earth Peanut Butter (a sugar free brand!)
  • Chopped Dates (a handful)
  • 4 tps of Water

Mix together all of the above ingredients into a bowl creating a crumbly texture. Before flattening down into a square tin covered in grease proof paper. Flatten down with a spoon then pop in the fridge to chill and set.

 

Step 2:

The caramel:

  • 2-3 tbsp the same Peanut Butter
  • Half cup of water
  • Couple of chopped dates
  • Dash of syrup
  • Dash of vanilla extract

Whip it all together in the same bowl until it’s at a caramel like texture – not too gooey. Spread across the whole of the base and pop into the fridge to chill further.

 

Step 3:

 

The topping:

  • 70+% DARK chocolate

Melt thoroughly and spread immediately across the whole spread, pop in the fridge to set. Leave for an hour – then carefully chop into pieces without letting the chocolate crack too thoroughly.

AND ENJOY! These are the most indulgent, refined sugar free treats to give you a little pick-me-up when needed. I took these into work and were a huge hit in the office during a training day giving everyone a little mood boost.

This is due to the nutritional content: containing all naturally occurring sugars which you digest in a completely different way to glucose for example.

Please leave any comments, or let me know if you make them yourself! I hope you like this peanut buttery goodness as much as I do. XO
