What's inside a twix bar?
Inside these twix bars are a layer of shortbread and then a layer of caramel and chocolate on top of that. I love to add a little sea salt on top too!

Do twix have eggs?
These twix do not have eggs! The shortbread is a traditional recipe with no eggs either. It makes these bars vegan!
What biscuit is in twix?
The biscuit of a twix bar is traditionally a shortbread cookie. Here are the ingredients in this homemade twix recipe:
- Coconut flour
- Almond flour
- Coconut oil
- Maple syrup
How to make homemade twix bars:
Start by whisking together the coconut flour and almond flour then add the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and stir with a rubber spatula until no clumps of flour remain. Bake the shortbread for 10-12 minutes then allow it to cool completely.
Next, make the caramel layer. Combine the nut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Mix with a rubber spatula or whisk until smooth. Pour the caramel over the cooled shortbread and place in the freezer until completely set.
Finally, whisk together all of the chocolate ingredients and pour over the cooled caramel layer. Top with sea salt and allow to set completely.

- While the shortbread is cooling, make the caramel layer. In a medium-large bowl, combine the almond/cashew butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Mix with a rubber spatula or whisk until smooth. If needed, microwave on high for 10-15 seconds to make mixing easier. Pour the caramel over the cooled shortbread and place back in the fridge or freezer to set and harden. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or 30 minutes in the freezer.
- Once the caramel layer is almost set, start on the chocolate layer. Whisk together all of the chocolate ingredients until smooth and pour over the cooled caramel layer. Smooth evenly then top with flaky sea salt. Let cool in the fridge or freezer again until set. Slice into 1-inch slices. Keep store in the refrigerator or freezer.
