One day, I saw a post about how I could make “homemade” twix bars. Being one of my favorite sweets as a child, and since I no longer eat them (as I stopped eating refined sugar a few years ago) I opened it to see how that was possible! My disappointment gradually grew as I kept reading that I should use “homemade” sugar, “homemade” margarine, “homemade” white flour and so on… Why bother make something totally unhealthy when it’s delicious and already available in the store???!!! Together with my disappointment though, my eagerness to find a way to eat healthy twix bars grew as well! Off we go on the hunt for a delicious healthy twix bars recipe!

I experimented and tried many recipes. I found THE one. I substituted some of the ingredients with the ones I use the most and slightly changed the ratios to adjust them to my liking… And so I present you with the absolutely delicious recipe, of HOMEMADE vegan twix bars, which all my family and friends love very much.

Recipe based on the original “HOMEMADE TWIX BARS” By Ashley Melillo. Thank you Ashley!

Ingredients

FOR THE SHORTBREAD CRUST
190gr quick cooking oats
75gr cocconut flour
80gr melted odourless coconut oil
145gr agave syrup or honey
2/3 tsp vanilla bean powder bourbon is more aromatic
FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER
200gr almond butter see how you can make your own at home here: http://www.gojimary.com/recipe/almond-butter/
220gr agave syrup
60gr melted odourless coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla bean powder
1/5 tsp sea salt
FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER
70gr cacao powder 60gr if you have dark cacao powder are enough
120 melted odourless coconut oil
80gr agave syrup or honey

Steps

1
Done

FOR THE SHORTBREAD CRUST

Grind the oat flakes in your food processor to get oat flour (use the S blade).

2
Done

Add the coconut flour and vanilla and beat again.

3
Done

Add the coconut oil and agave syrup and beat once more till you see it turning into a dough.

4
Done

Take a shallow baking tin (22x30cm or similar) and cover the bottom with parchment paper. Spread your dough evenly to cover the surface.

5
Done

Use a fork to make small holes here and there to prevent it from rising too much and let vent during baking. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius for about 12-15 mins till it turns golden brown. Let it cool completely before you pour the caramel.

6
Done

FOR THE CARAMEL LAYER

Whisk all ingredients in a bowl, then pour the mixture on the shortbread crust. Place in the freezer for about 30mins, till the caramel sets. You don't want it to freeze completely because the chocolate won't stick to it and when you try to cut your bars, it will come off. But you want it set so as not to mix with the chocolate when you pour it on top.

7
Done

FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER

Whisk all ingredients in a bowl and pour on the caramel layer. Place it again in the freezer for at least 1 hour to set completely so you can cut your bars. Don't leave it overnight, as it will get too hard to cut.

8
Done

CUTTING THE BARS

The only slightly hard part is cutting the bars. You may need to ask the help of a man here, because it requires some strenght! Use a big and sharp knife and cut as you wish, I usually cut them as shown in the picture. I use a cutting board and cut vertically, don't cut it like bread, moving the knife back and forth, it will not work. You just need to press hard to cut the crust. You can use a folded towel where you place your palm to press, like I do, it's easier.



Extra Tips

  • Make sure your tin is in horizontal position when you place it in the freezer to prevent the caramel or chocolate from going to one end.
