Healthy Twix Bars

June 27, 2017

I know it seems like I’ve had a chocolate obsession lately, but who can resist a healthy take on your favourite treats?!
 

IN TRUE TWIX SPIRIT I’M GOING TO SHARE MY HEALTHY TWIST ON THE CLASSIC TWIX BAR.
 

Admittedly, it doesn’t taste identical to the ones I remember scarfing down as a child BUT they are pretty darn close AND delicious AND easy to make AND relatively healthy.

 


 

“Cookie” Layer 

  • 12 tablespoons of coconut flour

  • 8 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)

  • 2 tablespoons of (Canadian…hehe) maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl mix together all of the above ingredients, forming a dough.
Press dough into a greased 9×4 pan. (I used a bread pan)
Spread evenly.
Bake for 12ish minutes until the edges are golden.  
Let cool for 5-10 minutes. 
 

 

Caramel Layer

  • 24 dates (seeds removed)

  • 1/4 cup of peanut or cashew butter

In a food processor blend dates and peanut/cashew butter until a caramel texture is formed.
Scrape sides and add warm water when/if needed.
Add caramel layer to the cookie layer once it has cooled.
Place into freezer for approx 20 minutes.


Chocolatey Layer

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Remove the pan from freezer and cut into 1/2-1 inch pcs. 
Place the cookie and caramel layered cut pcs onto a cool rack with wax paper underneath to catch the chocolate.

Heat chocolate chips (I used a bowl with a pot of boiling water underneath but you can also use the microwave)
Once heated to a saucey consistency coat the pcs of cookie and caramel with melted chocolate.  
I had a bit left over so I drizzled some more chocolate after the initial coating.  

Optional ~ You can also top with some sea salt.

Place on cooling rack in the fridge for 40 minutes.

 

Viola, delicious, healthy-ish TWIX!
