These Millionaire Bars are rich in sweetness and loaded with mood-boosting antioxidants to keep you feeling like a million bucks, via PaleoHacks.
If you love Twix bars, you're going to love these super-rich Millionaire Bars with a decadent chocolate layer, sweet caramel center, and irresistible shortbread crust! To keep things Paleo, we switched out the usual ingredients with gluten-free and dairy-free swaps like blended dates and coconut flour!
These no-bake bars are a breeze to make, and are an easy way to kick sugar cravings to the curb! The coconut layer slightly resembles the texture of shortbread and is lightly sweetened with maple syrup to help balance out the coconut.
To begin, start with the coconut layer as the base. Combine the coconut oil, maple syrup, salt, and coconut flour in a large bowl, and transfer onto a prepared baking pan. Spread the mixture into a smooth layer and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
The next layer is the caramel, which is made with dates, maple syrup, and creamy cashew butter. Blend these ingredients together until smooth and reserve as your second layer. Note: If your dates are a bit older, they may be more stubborn when you blend them. Add a bit more maple syrup to get them to loosen up in the blender until the consistency is smooth. When the coconut layer is completely set, pour the caramel layer on top and spread into an even second layer. Then place back into the refrigerator for another 15 minutes to set.
For the last layer, melt coconut milk and dark chocolate in a double boiler and cool to room temperature for at least 15 minutes. Note: Make sure to let the chocolate layer cool before pouring over the caramel layer to ensure all three layers stay separate! When the caramel is completely set and the chocolate is finally cooled, pour over the second layer and smooth it out once more. Put it in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes and serve when done!
Enjoy your Millionaire Bars as a dessert or snack, and bring plenty to share, because these irresistible beauties will have everyone drooling for more!
