Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars

I remember these bars fondly from my pre-vegan days. The buttery layer of shortbread. The gooey layer of caramel that squishes everywhere when you bite down on the crackling chocolate top. The pure joy when that happens. The licking of the fingers afterwards. Pure bliss. So naturally I wanted these again. And naturally, me being… Continue reading Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars

Let’s try it.” And I did and it’s amazing and this is now my favourite way to eat oats, especially in the winter when you really want… Continue reading Golden Turmeric Oats
