These Raw Millionaire Shortbreads contain some of the best ingredients that will give you energy and keep you and your cells happy.
These delicious gooey treats are packed with an array of healthy fats, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Here is some nutritional information on what you’ll be enjoying…
Cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil is an extremely healthy fat that is high in lauric acid that can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Coconut oil also has antifungal properties, that have been shown to help fight flu and yeast infections by reducing yeast in the body.
Dates are rich in fibre, calcium, sulfur, iron, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper and magnesium which are all beneficial for optimal health.
Cashews are a good source of protein and are rich in iron, selenium, magnesium and zinc. The copper content cleanses the body to eliminate free radicals. They are also a good source of phytochemicals and antioxidants that protect us from some diseases.
Oats contain beta-glucans, which is a type of soluble fibre that slows down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. This slower digestion prevents dramatic spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels that would otherwise encourage our bodies to produce and store fat.
These little darlings are dairy, wheat and refined sugar-free.
To make these shortbreads gluten-free, use gluten-free rolled oats and if you’re allergic to nuts you could substitute the cashews for seeds (like sesame) or just use more oats.
I hope you enjoy.
