I bookmarked a recipe on Instagram for a healthy, gluten free Twix Bars which also reminded me of the Millionaire Bar’s that they have everywhere in Scotland. I try to be healthier when I bake at home since I’ll most likely eat the whole batch of whatever I’m making unless I’m making it for a friend’s birthday. This is a perfect recipe if you want to bake on a whim and skip an extra tip the grocery store. I used as few ingredients as possible: including sunflower butter, my dad’s honey, and Joaihu cacao! I wasn’t sure about how these would turn out, but I promise they incredible and they don’t require a lot of clean up. Make a sweet treat for yourself or a friend when you want something simple, easy, and tasty!
- 3 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2/3 sunflower butter or any other nut butter of your choice
- 1/3 honey
- 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
- Melted chocolate or cacao – as much as you want!
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F
- Combine almond flour, honey, and add melted coconut oil. I mixed by hand and then place in an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper. It’s ok if the dough doesn’t fill the whole dish— it will still come out correctly.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until it’s slightly darkened in color
- Then, in a small pan, combine caramel layer ingredients and bring to a light boil. Make sure not to over do it or the mixture will burn and you will have to start over (guess who did that the first time? Haha). Lower the heat to low and stir for 6-7 minutes to make sure that the caramel layer is mixing and warming up.
- Pour caramel layer on the the first almond flour mixture and let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so.
- Next, melt dark chocolate or cacao from Joahiu (check spelling) with 2 tsp of coconut oil. I melted this in a jar and stirred and then poured over the Twix bars to make complete. I also sprinkled some extra organic cane sugar from Trader Joe’s on top.
- Cut length wise into bars and keep in the fridge!
