Raw Salted Caramel Millionaire Shortbread

Bottom layer:
380g cashew nuts
2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of coconut syrup (maple syrup also works well)

Middle layer:
500g medjool dates (soaked in warm water for 1 hour)
1 tablespoons of coconut oil

2 tablespoons of cashew butter
1 teaspoon himalayan rock salt @creativenaturesuperfoods
Good quality rock salt (optional)

Top layer:
160g Creative Nature raw cacao powder @creativenaturesuperfoods
2-3 tablespoons of coconut syrup/maple syrup (to taste)
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
Teaspoon of cinnamon

Method:

  1. Soak your dates in warm water for at least an hour (or preferably overnight)
  2. Line a rectangular tin with baking parchment and grease with coconut oil
  3. In a food processor, blend the cashews down into a powder like consistency, then mix in your melted coconut oil and coconut syrup until well combined
  4. Press the bottom layer mixture down into the tin using the back of a spoon or spatular until completely flat and then place in the fridge (or freezer) to set
  5. Drain your soaked dates and add them to the food processor (make sure you have removed the stones) and add your melted coconut oil, cashew butter and salt. The mixture should be smooth – just like caramel
  6. Pour your caramel mixture onto your hardened base layer. At this point, I like to a sprinkling of rock salt over the caramel for extra saltiness! Then place back in the fridge (or freezer)
  7. Melt your coconut oil for your top chocolate layer over a bain marie and set to one side to cool
  8. Sieve in your Creative Nature raw cacao and then stir in your coconut syrup. You might need to add more cacao/syrup – the consistency should be fairly thick
  9. When your caramel layer has set, smooth over your chocolate and place back in the fridge
  10. Wait at least an hour (or preferably overnight) then cut into rectangular pieces and serve!
