Millionaire Shortbreads

Base Layer:
3/4 cup ground pecan nuts (or 3/4 cup coconut flour - although it is a bit too dry with this)
2 tbsp cacao (or cocoa)
3 - 4 tbsp coconut syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

*Combine all ingredients until they clump together (you can do this by hand). Press into a small lined square baking tray - the smaller the tray, the thicker the layers!


Middle Layer:
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (or almond butter... or hazelnut butter... any nut butter)!
3 tbsp coconut syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

*Mix peanut butter, syrup and oil until combined. Spread on top of base layer. Put in the fridge or freezer while you're making the next layer.


1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp coconut syrup

*Mix the cacao melted coconut oil and coconut syrup together until you have a smooth, melted chocolate consitency (have to admit, I ate quite a bit of this part before it made it into the baking tray)! Pour on top of the middle layer and spread evenly with a spatula (bang the base of the tray on the worktop a few times to make the top smooth and even).
