These healthy, no-bake millionaire bars are composed of three decadent layers: a soft almond flour shortbread crust, a creamy caramel filling and a thick, fudgy chocolate topping.



Shortbread Crust

Caramel Filling

Chocolate Topping


  1. Place dates in a small bowl and cover with warm water.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes*** Set aside.
  2. For the crust: add all crust ingredients to a large mixing bowl.  Mix well.  Firmly press crust dough into a foil-lined 8″ x 8″ pan.  Set aside.
  3. For the filling: drain water from soaked dates.  Add dates to food processor and blend for a few seconds.  Stop to scrape the sides of the food processor, then blend a few seconds more.  Add remaining filling ingredients to food processor and blend until mixture is smooth.  Stop to scrape the sides every so often.  Spread caramel filling over crust.
  4. For the topping: Place the chocolate in a small sauce pan.  Melt over low heat on the stove top, stirring frequently.  Once fully melted, remove from heat and mix in sunflower seed butter.  Cool for 5 minutes, then spread chocolate topping over filling.
  5. Place bars in fridge or freezer to set.  (I recommend overnight in the fridge.)
  6. Cut bars into 16 even pieces and eat!
  7. Store in fridge or freezer.


*For a nut free version, substitute the almond flour with sunflower seed flour or tigernut flour. I make my own sunflower seed flour by grinding raw sunflower seeds in a coffee grinder.  If substituting with tigernut flour, use 1 cup (100 g) for the crust.

**Use just the cream from a can of full fat coconut milk.

***If you don’t have a microwave, place dates in a bowl and boil a pot of water.  Pour boiling water over dates and soak them for 3-5 minutes, or until soft.
