Any nuts can be used in the shortbread or you can substitute the nuts for an additional 1/2 c almond flour. 
Don’t have Giant Vanilla Collagen? Don’t skip it!! It’s what makes a chewy caramel, hard to find in the keto world! Use Giant unflavored collagen in its place. Just replace the 3 tbs brown sugar substitute for 1/3c and add 1 tsp vanilla.
