HEALTHY MILLIONAIRE BARS
These healthy millionaire bars are a firm favourite whenever I make them. They are the most amazing combination of biscuity base, smooth & satisfying caramel made from almond butter and then the chocolate topping is the perfect ending to balance the sweetness of the caramel. Heaven in your mouth!
I love that they are free from refined sugar, free from dairy and gluten. Just not free from flavor! I shared this recipe on my Lecresuet instagram takeover and they were such a huge hit that I thought I must share them on here too.
They may seem like they would be complicated to make, but they're actually really easy. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for them to set in the fridge (or freezer if you're in a rush).
Healthy Millionaire Bars Base: 1/2 cup coconut flour 1/2 cup oat flour 3 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup) 1/2 cup coconut oil, slightly melted Pinch of salt Caramel: 1/2 cup almond butter (or peanut butter) 1/3 cup coconut oil 50ml honey (or maple syrup) 1 tsp vanilla pinch of salt Chocolate Topping: 3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted 4 Tbsp cocoa powder 2 Tbsp honey 1/2 tsp vanilla Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a loaf pan with baking paper, let it hang over the edges so that it is easy to lift the bars out once set. Pour all the ingredients for the base into a mixing bowl and mix until fully combined. Press the dough into the lined baking tin and bake for 10-12minutes, until it turns a lovely golden brown. Set aside and let the base cool completely. To make the caramel, pour all the ingredients into a small pot on medium to low heat. Stir until its all melted and fully combined. The mixture does not need to be boiled, its just to make sure that all of the ingredients are melted and combined. This will take about a minute or two. Pour the cooled caramel over the cooled base and place in the fridge (or freezer if you’re in more of a rush) to set. For the chocolate topping, mix all the ingredients in a bowl until fully combined. Pour over the set caramel layer. Place it back into the fridge to set. Once set, slice into bars, eat and enjoy. Makes: 16 blocks (depending on how big you cut them)
