Sticky Raw Vegan Shortbread

Sticky Raw Vegan Shortbread

I came up with these specifically for Santa during our vegan Christmas! I will definitely be making them regularly. They remind me of Scotch Fingers – biscuits I used to adore when I was a child, especially dunked in milk. Well, I can safely say these are 100 times better for you and most definitely tastier! I love the texture – fresh out of the freezer they are firm and crisp, or you can allow them to sit for a few minutes for them to be a little chewier. As with most of my treats, they are so healthy they are totally mid-morning or afternoon snack-appropriate. A very easy recipe and entirely free from sugar and nasty preservatives like other shortbreads… Give them a go and see how delicious healthy treats can truly be!

Ingredients

For: 12 - 15 bars
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup natural brazil nuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2-3 tbsp xylitol or stevia (sugar-free, feel free to use maple syrup or natural sweetener of choice)
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 vanilla bean (seeds scraped)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup filtered water

Instructions

  1. Blend all the base ingredients together in a food processor, adding the water as you go for consistency.
  2. When it forms a dough, press into a non-stick baking paper lined baking dish (with a little depth) to form a thick approx 1 cm base. Place in the freezer.
  3. After at least 1 hour, remove from the freezer and allow to sit for 1 minute to soften.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice the shortbread into bar or biscuit size pieces. I used a fork to make three sets of four holes for decoration (similar to scotch fingers). Enjoy immediately or store in the freezer.
