shortbread cookie layer

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil

caramel layer

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil

chocolate layer

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


  • Combine the "shortbread cookie layer" ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
  • Using slightly damp hands (so the dough doesn't stick to you), press the dough into a parchment lined square baking dish until it forms an even layer.
  • Bake the shortbread cookie layer at 350 degrees for about 17 minutes until slightly golden brown around the edges. Let cool for about 5 minutes once taken out.
  • Combine the "caramel layer" ingredients together in a bowl until well incorporated.
  • Spread the caramel evenly over the shortbread cookie layer. (For shortcut recipe, stop here and read notes above)
  • Place the caramel/shortbread layer into the freezer for about 1 hour 30 minutes until hardened. Once hardened, lift out of baking dish with parchment paper and cut into 1 inch rectangles in the shape of "Twix Bars".
  • Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in 30 second increments in the fridge, stirring in between.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, take the rectangle shaped Twix bars one at a time and submerge them in the melted chocolate until well coated. Place on a plate lined with parchment paper.
  • Place the chocolate covered twix bars back in the freezer and allow to harden for about 20-30 minutes. Remove from freezer and ENJOY!
