Looking for the ultimate, next-level snack? I got you covered! These vegan millionaire shortbread bars are simply divine as they are made with a crunchy vegan shortbread base that includes nutty almond flour.

The salted caramel layer itself is created with a gooey nut butter caramel, made from almond butter (believe me, you NEED to try this!) and topped with a deliciously sweet chocolate layer. I like to sprinkle a little extra flaked salt over the top for that extra tasty finish – yum! I hope you enjoy these sweet treats just as much as I do!

How to make vegan salted caramel millionaire shortbread

Creating the almond flour shortbread base

Preheat your oven to 180C (356F), then combine the flour, almond flour, sea salt, and icing sugar in a mixing bowl, then add in the dairy-free spread and use your hands to crumb it into the mix until no big pieces of spread are left and the mixture is lightly crumbly.

Place the mixture into a 20x20cm square baking tin and press it against the bottom to create an even layer. Pierce the base with a fork multiple times, then bake it in the oven for 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 30 minutes.

Preparing the almond butter caramel

In the meantime, prepare the salted almond butter caramel.

To a non-stick pan add the almond butter, brown sugar and condensed milk. Give it a good stir to mix and heat over gentle heat until the sugar is caramelised and well incorporated. Sprinkle in the sea salt flakes and fold them in.

Stir the cornflour into the vegan cream and pour the mixture into the caramel. Stir to combine, then remove the caramel from the heat. Allow for it to cool for 5-10 minutes to slightly harden.

Assemble your vegan millionaire shortbread

Pour the caramel on top of the shortbread base and spread it out evenly, then place it in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

Melt your vegan chocolate spread in your warm oven at about 50-60C for 10 minutes (or in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds), so that the spread becomes soft and runny. Pour the chocolate spread on top of the frozen caramel and spread it across the top with the back of a spoon, then sprinkle with sea salt flakes (optional). Transfer to a fridge or freezer to set for at least 2 hrs or overnight.

Remove from the freezer and slice the millionaire shortbread with a large, sharp knife whilst still frozen. Let it rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before digging in & enjoy!

How to store this vegan millionaires shortbread

This vegan millionaire shortbread is best stored in the freezer! The caramel is super gooey and to prevent it from becoming too runny, I like to store my millionaire shortbread bars in portion sizes in the freezer and take them out of the freezer roughly 15 minutes before enjoying them. 

Can I make this vegan millionaire shortbread gluten free?

Absolutely! I’ve personally used wheat flour in this recipe, but you can easily swap out the plain flour in the ingredients for a gluten-free alternative. Best use a gluten-free flour mix intended for baking, not a single-ingredient flour or nut flour. 

 

This recipe is:

  • 100% vegan
  • delicious & sweet
  • definitely addictive!
  • easy to make
  • made with a super gooey vegan caramel!
