It’s the weekend and you know what that means? Baking time! This Paleo Butterscotch Slice is dairy free, grain free, refined sugar free and gluten free. This slice consists of a shortbread base, a caramel filling and soft chocolate topping. I based this recipe off my Butterscotch Slice, which is absolutely moreish! I was initially intrigues with the idea of trying to make a shortbread without the usual butter, flour and sugar because, let’s face it, that’s basically all there is to shortbread.
I set straight to work after setting myself this task. (Sometimes I feel like bit of a made baking scientist!)
Making the shortbread didn’t take long to perfect. This shortbread tastes delicious, has a very similar texture to the original and the only thing that isn’t like traditional shortbread is that it doesn’t melt in the mouth. However, you won’t miss this with the added layers of caramel and chocolate!
