Healthy Millionaire Bars

Healthy Millionaire Bars

One of my favourite desserts are millionaire bars, I absolutely love the ones from Second Cup. They have the perfect cookie, to caramel, to chocolate ratio. If you haven’t had one of them before, I strongly suggest you try one from there. A little while ago I was scrolling through Pinterest and I saw a no bake recipe for these delicious little squares. After comparing a few different recipes, I decided to switch a few ingredients and make a healthy version. I mean after all it is the new year, and who doesn’t want to be healthy. So yes these aren’t the rich traditional millionaire bars, but they taste just as good, and bonus, you won’t feel guilty having more than one. Also, the “caramel” layer isn’t actually caramel but something just as delicious. I love enjoying one of these with a cup of tea, or when I want something sweet after a meal! Let me know if you give them a try, or what other sweet treats you’ve turned healthy!


Prep time: 15 mins – Fridge time: 2 hours – Makes: 12 Bars


Ingredients

Cookie layer:
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 Cup of Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup of Coconut Flour or Almond Flour
Caramel Layer:
  • 1/4 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Natural Peanut Butter or sub for Dates if needed
Chocolate Layer:
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 4 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup of Natural Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of Salt

Lets get started:

  1. Start by combining the ingredients for the cookie layer. Mix around until you get a soft dough type texture.
  2. Line a square dish with parchment paper, and scoop the cookie mix into the bottom, flatten out to create the first layer. You can set this to the side for now.
  3. In a small sauce pan, over low heat, add the ingredients for the caramel layer. (Because you are dealing with oil, it may seem a little runny but not to worry, it will firm up).
  4. Pour the caramel layer over the cookie layer, and put it in the fridge for half an hour to an hour.
  5. In another small sauce pan, over low heat, add the ingredients for the chocolate layer. Once everything is dissolved remove from the heat and give it about 4-6 mins to cool before pouring over the caramel layer. (This is to prevent the second layer from melting).
  6. Set the dish in the fridge for an hour or two to firm completely.
  7. When ready to eat cut into squares and enjoy!

Tip: I found melting the coconut oil in a bowl in a microwave before helped rather than melting it on the stove.
