Paleo Twix Candy Bar Recipe

With Halloween coming up so soon I was determined to develop a recipe for one of my favorite candy bars. I asked myself many times how a Twix Candy can possibly be made paleo and healthier than the original. Well, I have to warn you before you make this because this recipe I developed is very close to the original and is amazingly delicious and almost impossible not to eat the whole batch all at once!

The cookie is made entirely of unprocessed ingredients. It consists mostly of almond meal, arrowroot powder and coconut oil (or butter). It has a perfect crumbly and crunchy texture that resembles the original candy bar’s cookie very well.

Each cookie is topped with a homemade caramel sauce that is made purely of raw coconut sugar and coconut milk. Each cookie is then dipped in melted dark chocolate and placed in the fridge until the chocolate hardens. …amazing, delicious and irresistible!

    Are you missing the step which adds caramel after it hardens?

    Omg I made these today and they are amazing. First time in a very long I can enjoy twix without the fear of a belly ache. Takes a little bit of work but so worth it. Thanks for the recipe delicious :)

    The recipe looks great but would the semi-sweet chocolate chips with cane sugar qualify as a Paleo ingredient?

    • adriana November 21, 2013 at 10:00 am Reply

      Hi Paula, dark chocolate that is made with no dairy, soy or gluten is paleo-approved.

    Posso substituir o polvilho de araruta (arrowroot powder) por polvilho azedo (sour cassava starch) ?

    • adriana December 7, 2013 at 3:50 pm Reply

      Boa pergunta. Eu nao sei Nathalia porque nunca usei o polvilho.

    Would it work with coconut flour? – We have a nut allergy in the house which kills a lot of paleo recipes for us :(

    • adriana December 7, 2013 at 3:37 pm Reply

      Diane, unfortunately coconut flour will not work in place of the almond flour.

    can I sub Tapioca flour instead of arrowroot?

    • adriana March 10, 2014 at 1:30 pm Reply

      I would say yes, but I am not sure if the consistency will be the same. Definitely worth a try. Please let me know how it turns out.

    Hello, what can be used as a substitute for the almond flour? Almonds have a cherry after taste (to me anyway) and it is very strong in this recipe.

    • adriana July 5, 2014 at 11:19 am Reply

      Did you make this recipe? What brand of almond flour did you use? I personally think the chocolate and caramel flavor are dominant here and there’s no almond taste. I have not tested this recipe with another flour, so it is hard to tell you what a good substitute is for the almond flour.

    Holy Bajeebers, these are DELICIOUS! The caramel sauce alone is ridiculously good. I couldn’t stop myself from licking the pan after I spread it on the cookies.

    This recipe is the easiest one I’ve found for these cookies and has the least ingredients.

    Thank you!

      Thank you for your feedback Brandi.

    I made these and they are really delicios. They taste like chocolate almond bars. I unfortunately didn’t have dark chocolate or cocoa butter so I made them with milk chocolate chips. Seriously, don’t try this at home! They are dangerous! My “caramel” was more of a syrup (it never thickened) and they didn’t end up looking like the ones in your photo. But who cares when they tasted so darn good. I’m going to make them again using a different coconut milk to see if it thickens. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

      Thank you for your feedback Yari. For the caramel to thicken next time, use full fat coconut milk (heavy cream also works well).
