Raw Vegan Twix Bars – Caramel filling with a touch of sea salt {Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Raw, Vegan, Paleo, Healthy Dessert}

April 21, 2021

A few weeks ago I was talking with my friend who is a 100% raw vegan (amazing right!) and she was telling me about this cafe she eats at that sells raw vegan takes on popular candies – twix, butterfingers, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, heath bars…, and I was intrigued!

About 2 years ago I went through a period where I was making these raw pistachio date bites & coconut bites 24/7! Seriously, these recipes are some of my favorites I’ve ever shared! Then I went away to college and my baking and cooking adventures had to take a back burner. But, since I’ve been home, all the baking and cooking has been going on and this recipe, after hearing about my friends amazing story of them, was another dessert I just had to tackle.

These raw vegan twix bars are gluten-free, vegan, raw, plant-based, dairy-free, paleo, healthy desserts that taste like little bites of heaven. The base layer is a plant-based shortbread crust topped with a date caramel layer, the perfect fudgey raw chocolate and finished off with little sprinkles of Himalayan salt. This dessert is my new FAVORITE things because of how easy and healthy it is to make. Plant-based eating never tasted so good!!!

  • Biscuit:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
