This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

This recipe is a twist on the classic millionaire shortbread we all know and love! The addition of the orange flavour makes these caramel bites a little festive and oh so indulgent.
The recipe is entirely vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in anything. The orange & caramel bites are sweet, gooey, rich and utterly heavenly. Perfect to make for visiting family at Christmas or share amongst friends.

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
