Here’s a sticky millionaire’s shortbread recipe that’s also pretty good for you

millionaire's shortbread

Planning on working out any time soon?

Maybe you’re hitting up the gym in a bit? Or going for a quick, casual 10k?

If so, good for you, you have more self control and drive than the entirety of the Her team combined. Well done.

Going for a run might make you feel like you can’t enjoy a nice square of sticky shortbread or two afterwards though – and why would you? Shortbread’s full of sugar and chocolate and unhealthy things, right?

Not this shortbread, my friends. Not this one.

Because this shortbread is made using brazil nut butter and a load of almonds and oats so it’s actually quite healthy – and a very decent post-run treat.

The below recipe from Craft Company will make you 12 servings of stunning shortbread.

Or one, depending on how much of it you’re planning on eating yourself… in moderation. Obviously.

You will need: 

75g oats
75g ground almonds
75g dark chocolate
35g coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp. honey
70g brazil nut butter


1. Put your oats into a blender or food processor and blend them until they’re a similar consistency to flour

2. Add your ground almonds and agave nectar to your ground oats and blend again. Add 1 tbsp of water and continue to mix until clumps start to form

3. Press your mixture into a greaseproof paper-lined baking tin and pop it in the freezer

4. For the next layer, melt 35g of coconut oil and mix it with the brazil nut butter. Spread this mixture on top of your almond and oat layer, before putting the tray back in the freezer

5. Break up your dark chocolate and melt it in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, along with the rest of your coconut oil. Once it’s fully melted, take it off the heat, and leave it to cool for a couple of minutes. Spread your chocolate mixture over your brazil nut layer and put it back into the freezer for about an hour

6. Cut it up and eat it
