A Healthier Twist on a Twix Bar

When we asked what you wanted to see more of on our recipe page this was one of the requests - along with a whole list of requests for nutritionally upgraded classic chocolate treats. We started with this Twix Bar and gave this classic sweet treat a vegan and gluten free makeover. Let us know what you think!

Raw Vegan Twix Bar

Ingredients

For the Base

2 cups raw macadamia nuts

1 cup gluten-free oats

4 tbsp agave syrup 

3 tbsp vanilla essence 

a good pinch of salt 

For the Caramel

2 cups dates, pitted

2 tbsp cashew butter

1 tbsp vanilla essence

2 tbsp carob powder 

1 tbsp lucuma powder

1 tbsp coconut oil 

a good pinch of salt 

For the chocolate sauce 

3 tbsp coconut oil 

3 tbsp agave syrup 

6 tbsp cacao powder

a good pinch of salt 

Method
  1. To make the base put all the ingredients into a blender. Mix until everything is combined. The ‘dough’ needs to stick so that you can roll it into a ball without it falling apart, if it does add a little more coconut oil.
  2. Now line a baking tray with some parchment paper. Pour the contents of the blender into your baking tin and press down evenly until ½ in thick. Set aside.
  3. To make the caramel, again, add all of the above ingredients and blitz until silky smooth. Pour the mixture over your macadamia oat base. Place the baking tin into the freezer for about 3 hours or overnight until fully frozen.
  4. Before taking your Twix slab out of the freezer make the raw cacao coating. Gently heat your coconut oil and agave syrup. Once the coconut oil is fully melted add the cacao powder and the pinch of salt. Stir until smooth
  5. Cut the Twix slab into long thin strips before dipping each piece into your raw chocolate. Make sure you cover the entire surface – top & bottom. Then place onto a parchment lined tray that fits into the freezer.
  6. Once all bars are enrobed in chocolate place them back into the freezer until the chocolate has set. Transfer to a Tupperware and store in the freezer.
