Wouldn't it be great if you could make a delicious melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookie treat without ever having to turn on your oven? These paleo chocolate squares prove it's possible!

No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Shortbread Squares [Vegan]


  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup dried coconut or desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cashew nut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener of your choice
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup 100 percent chocolate/cacao liquor nibs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or maple syrup


  1. In a food processor, blend ground almonds, dried coconut, cashew butter, sweetener, and salt until a bound consistency has formed (about 1-2 minutes).
  2. In a silicon mould or a greased dish, press down the mixture to form a flat base.
  3. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes until solid.
  4. In a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water, melt your chocolate and coconut oil together, then add in your sweetener and stir in until fully dissolved.
  5. Now pour directly onto the shortbread base and place in freezer for about 1 hour to set.
  6. Remove from the freezer and allow to stand for about 15-20 minutes before using a sharp knife to slice squares and serve.


Keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
