Twix bars are a delicious, indulgent treat but they’re definitely not healthy, that’s why why I wanted to find a way of making my own version – one without all the processed sugars and mystery ingredients.
What I ended up with is a sweet treat made with only natural sugars and ingredients – with dates replacing the caramel and a nut-based biscuit making a high protein bar.
It’s amazing to be able to make such glorious treats from natural and minimal ingredients. A healthy twist on these famous bars that makes them the perfect snack for any time of day!
Vegan Rwix Bars
- 1 cup almond or cashews, 140 g
- 3 tbsp barley malt syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 12 medjool dates, pitted
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/4 cup cacao butter, 50 g
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
Add almonds, malt, vanilla powder and salt to a food processor and process.
Press the biscuit mixture evenly in a small loaf tin with baking parchment. Freeze while you make the caramel.
Add the caramel ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
Remove tin from freezer and spread caramel on top. Freeze for 10 minutes this time.
Melt the cacao butter in double boiler, then add the cacao powder and maple syrup. Mix well until smooth.
Remove tin from freezer and cut your bars into long rectangles.
Dip your bars in the chocolate and place on a wire rack. Freeze for another 10 minutes.
Remove from freezer and dip once more in the chocolate. Freeze again 10 minutes and then you're ready to eat!
Keep in the refrigerator, if they last 😉
You can of course dip more times your bars in the chocolate if you want a thicker layer of chocolate on them. For that, simply double up the ingredients for the chocolate!
