Gluten Free Millionaires Shortbread - Slimming Eats recipes (1)

If you love twix bars, then you will just love these, biscuity crumb base topped with toffee and milk chocolate what more could one ask for.

I've had this idea in my head for a while. The toffee and the chocolate was easy, but coming up with a biscuity base was the test. But I am not one to be defeated and of course I finally got the result I was looking for with these Gluten Free Millionaires Shortbread.

They are soooo good and great for a treat with a nice cup of tea.

To keep these gluten free I have used coconut flour. Coconut flour works really well for low calorie items, as it is really fibrous, so you need much less of it compared to regular flour, meaning it works out as a lot less calories.

One thing I will mention is to check the reviews of the coconut flour you buy, there are some out there that taste really horrible and are not ground very fine, meaning the end result and texture can be awful.

A couple of brands I love are Bob Mills, Trader Joes and Sukrin Coconut Flour, if you use any other brand, be sure to double check the calories as they can vary slightly.

I use an 8inch square pan like below to make the biscuit base:

To sweeten the biscuit base I used Sukrin Goldwhich isa great natural tasting sweetener that is nice and golden just like you expect brown sugar to be. I have tried many different types of sweetener in the pasttrying to find one that is natural and tastes natural and I think this is it. I usually just use some honey or maple syrup, but it’s nice to know I can now use this and reduce the calories even further. Instead of sukrin you can use any sweetener of choice of course. But I can't recommend sukrin enough, it tastes so good in baked goods and is by far the best tasting natural sweetener I have found.

NOTE: For those in the USA and Canada there is now also a similar sweetener called Swerve that comes in a white granulated sweetener and an icing sugar, that are natural and like Sukrin, have no after taste. Unfortunately they don't carry a brown sugar version, but the white granulated is on par with Sukrin.

For those in Canada - Swerve can be purchased at most loblaws stores in the health food section.

    Can I ask. The recipe called for coconut milk in a carton. Is there a specific brand to use? Most coconut milks I find are in tins.

      Hi Steph, you want to use the drinking coconut milk that you usually find where almond milk etc is, rather than the tinned coconut milk for curries etc. It is much lower in syns. In the UK, I think the brands are coconut dream and koko. Hope that helps 🙂
