These delicious homemade healthy twixs are an easy no bake treat that are gluten free, nut free and vegan. A crumbly ‘biscuit’ base and a layer of thick gooey caramel all topped with a thick layer of melted chocolate.
The base of these twixs are made up of just three ingredients and despite having that ‘biscuity’ texture they don’t actually contain any biscuits or butter. They are made up of oats, dates for sweetness and some coconut oil which acts as ‘glue’ in this recipe and helps combine the ingredients. For the caramel layer I use my Healthy Two Ingredient Caramel recipe which is dairy free and uses coconut sugar as opposed to white sugar, making this recipe a great nutrient dense option.
The time noted to make this recipe does not include the time needed for the caramel, which needs to be made in advance. If you are in a rush and don’t have time to make the caramel layer you can simply lay soaked butterflied dates over the top of the biscuit base instead. You will also save time doing this as the bars will not need placing in the freezer to set before the chocolate layer is added. If you are omitting the caramel you can skip ahead to step seven of the method.
The ingredients have been split into three sections so you know what you need to make each layer. When it comes to making the caramel it will be helpful to look over the full recipe to ensure it is foolproof.
I like to use individual brownie trays to make these healthy twixs, however, if you don’t have one available you could use a small brownie tray, (no larger than 8″ x 8″), and slice into bars once the chocolate has set. If you are doing this you may want to add a tablespoon of coconut oil to the Bain- Marie when you are melting the chocolate to make the bars easier to slice.
I put these bars in the freezer to set as I find it helps the caramel retain its consistency and speeds the setting process along. I just allow the bars a few minutes to thaw out before eating.
