Remixed Twix Bars
Today I’m sharing one of my favourite sweet treats: Remixed Twix Bars. These are layered with an almond flour crust, gooey caramel center, and lots of chocolate!
Lifestyle changes are hard to sustain if you change everything overnight. Instead, if you make small changes to your diet, exercise routine, and overall lifestyle, you’ll be more likely to adopt these changes into your everyday life, without even thinking about it.
One way to make it easier to sustain a healthier lifestyle is to avoid eliminating everything fun from your diet. If you’re craving chocolate or candy, make a batch of these Twix bars instead. Leave them in your freezer, and grab one when you feel like a treat. If you tend to reach for sweets when you're stressed, tired, or studying, these bars will be your new go-to. You won’t be left with that sugar rush and sick feeling that comes from eating processed candy bars, and you can feel better knowing you're eating less processed ingredients.
Try these out- they might become one of your favourites too!
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
2/3 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup nut or seed butter (I like almond)
8 tbsp maple syrup
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/8 tsp salt
1. Mix together 1/4 cup coconut oil (solid!) and 2 tbsp maple syrup. Mash until coconut oil is smooth. No lumps!
2. Add in: 1/4 tsp salt and 2/3 cup almond flour, mix all together.
3. Line a small pan with parchment paper, add in the ‘dough’ and press down with a spatula.
4. Bake at 350F for 16-20 mins.
5. Let the crust cool.
1. In a saucepan on medium heat, stir together nut/seed butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, coconut oil until all smooth. Remove from heat.
2. Pour caramel over the crust layer, and place in freezer to harden for an hour or two.
1. In a saucepan, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbsp coconut oil, and a pinch of salt.
2. Pour the chocolate layer over top of the crust+caramel layer. Sprinkle some salt over the top.
3. Place back in freezer to harden for an hour or so.
Now cut and serve! I like to keep these stored in the freezer- take them out a few minutes before serving. I hope you love these as much as I do.
