Healthy Twix Bars

Amazing Twix like recipe modified from Rachael Good Eats – Registered Dietitian

Ingredients

Shortbread Layer

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp honey, warmed (I love Manuka honey)

Caramel Layer

  • 1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt

Chocolate Layer

  • One 2.5 oz dark chocolate bar or sub 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp flakey sea salt

Instructions

Shortbread Layer

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine almond flours with melted coconut oil and warmed honey in a large bowl. Stir out all the crumbles of flour until thoroughly combined.

  3. Line a 8×8 baking dish (or loaf tin for thicker layers) with parchment paper and pack down shortbread mixture into the base using a silicone spatula. If shortbread mix starts to stick to spatula, dip in melted coconut oil and continue to gently press down evenly into entire base of dish.

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until starting to turn golden brown. Remove once done and let cool completely.

Caramel Layer

  1. Combine almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and sea salt in a saucepan over the stove on medium-low heat and heat until completely liquified, whisking together, about 2-3 minutes.

  2. Remove from burner and let cool completely.

Chocolate Layer

  1. Break up chocolate bar into small bowl and add coconut oil. Warm in microwave for 30 sec intervals, stirring in between, until completely liquified. Or, heat over the stove.

TWIX BARS

  1. Once shortbread & caramel have completely cooled, pour caramel sauce over the base layer, spreading out evenly. Set in refrigerator until it hardens (about 20-35 minutes).

  2. Remove from refrigerator and pour chocolate over the top, spreading out evenly. Sprinkle flakey sea salt as the last touch and set back in fridge for 5-10 minutes to harden.

  3. Once chilled, remove the hardened mold from 9×9 pan by pulling on the sides of the parchment paper. Lay on cutting board and using a large chef’s knife, slice into 1/2-inch strips, and from there, slice each strip into thirds.

  4. Ready to serve!! Enjoy! Store in airtight container in the refrigerator
