You make my Healthy Home Made Twix Bars by first making the cookie base. This cookie, unlike traditional Twix, is made with almond meal, coconut flour, coconut oil and maple syrup. This means it’s gluten free, grain free, and processed sugar free too. While this cookie is better for you, nobody would ever know, the flavor is still Bigger and Bolder. After the cookie layer of course comes the caramel layer,  and then the chocolate! This is the icing on the cake if you will.

Ingredients

  • Shortbread Ingredients:
  • 2 cups (8oz/240g) almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup (2 ½ floz/71ml)) coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup (4oz/115g) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Caramel Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup (2 ½ floz/71ml) coconut oil, liquid
  • 1/3 cup (4oz/115g) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspsoon salt
  • Chocolate Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup (2 floz/57ml) coconut oil, liquid
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350oF (180oC) and line a 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl combine almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  • Press into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until sides are slightly brown. Let cool while preparing the next layer.
  • In a medium bowl combine almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Mix until completely smooth.
  • Pour over cooled crust and place in the fridge to harden. Refrigerate 1-2 hours.
  • Once the caramel mixture is hardened, prepare the chocolate mixture. In a medium bowl, combine coconut oil, cacao powder, maple, and salt. Mix until smooth and pour over the caramel layer. Refrigerate until hardened, about an hour.
  • Once the chocolate is set, gently remove from the parchment paper. Place entire square on a cutting board and cut in half one way and in eighths the other way, creating 16 candy sticks.
  • Store in fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for 1 month.

Recipe Notes

An 8 x 8 inch square pan is similar in capacity to a 7 x 11 inch pan.
Baking parchment is a silicon coated paper, which is non stick.
Grease-proof paper can be used, but it must be placed on a buttered/oiled pan, and then buttered or oiled again.

I ended up using chunky peanut butter because it’s my favorite nut butter and those came out great, a perfect mix between Snickers and Twix bars. The only issue is that my cookie did not crisp up as much as I wanted it to despite leaving it in the oven for longer, not sure what happened there… But good recipe overall!

Do we use 2 cups or 1 cup of almond flour?

8oz is 1 cup, but it says 2 cups.

Gemma, A friend just recently shared your recipe w/ me after she made these bars for a fundraiser and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!!! My question is: How might this recipe turn out using regular wheat flour? Thanks!

Hi Gemma! Love your recipes! I have all the ingredients at home except for maple syrup (I have honey though) and coconut flour. Can’t go android buy it. Would Whole Spelt work with the almond flour?

Overall, these bars are really tasty and we are not vegan or gluten free people typically. I love there is no processed flour or sugar. However, they don’t really taste like twix bars to me and my family. The cookie was soft (maybe under cooked?) which may be why they didn’t taste overally like Twix bars. The middle section does taste a bit carmelly and the top is certainly chocolate. Anyway, we like them and I’m sure I’ll make them again as they were pretty easy to make. Thanks Gemma and Olivia!

Hi Gemma,

Just wondered if these actually taste like the “real deal”? Concerned that with the almond flour and butter they may look like a Twix but taste nutty and more like a snickers or other nut bar?

Having said that they look delicious and I’d give them a try anyway ????

Thanks!
