You definitely won't regret trying this DIY
twix bar recipe!
Vegan, Gluten free, Paleo
1/2 cup Almond butter, creamy
8 1/3 tbsp Maple syrup, pure
2 tbsp Maple syrup
Baking & spices
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
2/3 cup Coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Sea salt, flaky
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Oils & vinegars
1 cup Coconut oil
SO WHAT NEXT?
Ok let's get stuck into it! The crust is made with coconut flour, which makes a cookie base that creates a texture most similar to shortbread (of any gluten-free flour)
Unfortunately, because coconut flour is super absorbent and likes to be unique, no other flour would substitute well here. A little goes a long way with coconut flour though, so pick up a bag and you’ll have it around for a while!
The caramel filling is super easy. It can be made in the microwave or on the stove, but you don’t even need to cook it; all of the ingredients just need to be melted together and fully combined before being poured over the cooled crust and left to set.
While the caramel cools; coconut oil, cocoa powder, and maple syrup come together for the quickest homemade chocolate ever! Pour the chocolate over the caramel and leave it to set and we’re almost done!
If you wish, you can sprinkle some flaky sea salt (which pretty much makes anything better) you'll love the bite of crunchy salt on these homemade Twix bars!
It’s the perfect complement to the sweet filling, but you can leave it off for a more classic flavour.
