I have always loved Twix. There is just something about that shortbread, gooey caramel, and melty chocolate that hits all the right spots.
I mean, how can you go wrong?
But of course, with this beloved chocolate bar comes 10 tons of refined sugar and other ugly ingredients that quickly make this treasured treat anything but satisfying.
These healthier homemade Twix bars, however, will have you jumping for joy. Like this flourless red velvet cake, and these chocolate tahini balls, this Twix recipe is about as guilt-free as you can get, because these bars are gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, AND vegan.
I mean, what’s not to love?
This Twix recipe makes so many bars you can share with your friends and family, or hoard them all for yourself. I promise I won’t tell, so long as you don’t!
I brought these homemade Twix bars to a family gathering not too long ago because I wanted to test out the recipe with people who don’t have to try my creations on the daily, and who won’t lie to me to save my feelings, ha ha ha. Needless to say, they were a hit!
Homemade Twix Bars
And while they don’t taste exactly like a traditional Twix bar, they were so delicious that everyone wanted the recipe right then and there.
It was a proud moment for me. Thanks, fam.
The really cool thing about this recipe is that even though it looks like there are lots of ingredients and many steps, there are actually only SEVEN ingredients total! Most of them are repeated in each layer, like the coconut oil and maple syrup.
And while I did say I wouldn’t tell if you hoarded these all to yourself, keep in mind that this Twix recipe contains better-for-you ingredients. Enjoy them in moderation.
On that note, I better go make a new batch; I’m running low!
