These No Bake Millionaire Bars have a graham cracker crust topped with a gooey caramel layer made from medjool dates, then finished with a crunchy and rich chocolate top. This dessert undoubtedly has become one of my favorite no bake recipes. It has all the texture and flavor you would ever have dreamt of, crumbly, chewy, crunchy, sweet buttery nutty and chocolate.

Bring these to your next family picnic or over to your next friend’s get-together. I guarantee everyone will ask how you made the bars so darn tasty WITHOUT caramel and instead dates!

Millionaire bars basically include all of my favorite things.

Just like the traditional delicious millionaire’s shortbread, you will taste the “buttery” shortbread, gooey caramel and rich chocolate flavor profiles throughout.

However, the same irresistible flavors are made without any conventional butter or granulated sugar.

You won’t believe the caramel layer is made with medjool dates and almond butter. it is gooey, chewy and caramel-y.

And of course, we finish with a rich dark chocolate layer, where you can use dark or milk chocolate of your choice.

Ingredients for No Bake Millionaire Bars

“Shortbread” Crust

Graham Crackers: You can use any store-bought graham crackers you desire. You can also keep this grain and gluten free by buying gluten free graham crackers.

Almond Butter: This is going to give your bars that delicious creamy texture. You can use peanut butter or whichever nut butter you have on hand. Feel free to use sun butter if you need to go nut free.

Dairy Free Milk: Any dairy free milk works here, such as almond, oat or hemp. If you only have regular milk, that is fine too if you do not mind using dairy.

Caramel Layer

Medjool Dates: These little magical things called dates are fabulous and when used correctly, you can totally mimic caramel sauce!

Almond Butter: This is going to give your bars that delicious creamy texture. You can use peanut butter or whichever nut butter you have on hand. Feel free to use sun butter if you need to go nut free.

Coconut oil: A great vegan alternative to other baking oils or butter.

Vanilla Extract: We all love a little dash of vanilla, even in no bake desserts! It lends a subtle but perfect hint of flavor in sweet dishes.

Salt: A sprinkle of sea salt in your caramel is going to make sure there is the perfect balance of flavors.

Chocolate Layer

Chocolate Chips or Bars: You can use dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate bars that you can simply rough chop before melting down for your chocolate layer.

Coconut oil: This is going to help your chocolate melt cohesively and lend a very beautiful shine to your chocolate when it sets up and dries.
