This is a completely innovative approach to making millionaire’s shortbread bites, keeping them refined sugar free and therefore more attractive for customers. Golden Date Juice Concentrate (golden date syrup) is used for the biscuit base and Date Nectar (Dark Date Juice Concentrate) for the caramel filling, giving Refined Sugar Free Millionaire’s Shortbread a natural caramel flavour and colour. Compared to a standard recipe, this innovative recipe allows manufacturers to decrease sugar by 31%, and increase fibre and protein by 20% and 14% respectively.
As raw cakes are growing in popularity, particularly in independent bakeries, coffee shops and at home, Marie Nichols has developed a date-nutrition recipe using only natural ingredients. Dates are used to naturally sweeten the cake, add toffee flavour, and to bind the base together. This recipe is vegan and free of refined sugar.
