Prep Time


  1. Using the dough blade of your Ninja Kitchen system, throw in the plain flour, stevia and butter, and select low/dough until you achieve a thick shortbread dough.

  2. Transfer the dough to a bowl, cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool.

  3. When the dough is in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes, start to pre-heat the oven to 180C degrees.

  4. Now, removed the dough from the fridge and start rolling it using a rolling pin, you want the short bread to be about ½ cm – 1cm thick.

  5. Use a cookie cutter and cut the cookies, pierce some holes and place in a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Repeat process until you use all of the dough.

  6. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden.

  7. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

  8. Melt the Montezuma chocolate over hot water by breaking the chocolate into pieces and adding 5 tbsp. milk.

  9. Dip half of the shortbread in the chocolate and sprinkle some chocolate shaving and place back on a wire rack to cool.

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
