High Protein Millionaire's Shortbread

If you are someone who enjoys a good social media holiday you might like to know that 6 January is National Shortbread Day. Exciting stuff.

Anyway, shortbread is made primarily from butter and sugar. This means it is delicious, and also something you might want to avoid after eating all of the dessert over Christmas.

So instead, here is an awesome recipe from the Protein Works for a low-carb, high protein alternative. It sounds complicated but it’s not. Enjoy
