Why are these homemade twix bars healthier?
We use nutrient-rich ingredients in this healthy homemade twix bar recipe. There are no refined flours or sugar In fact, there is very little added sugar at all in this recipe! Here are some of the key ingredient swaps:
Almond flour for white flour: Almond flour is much more nutrient-dense than white flour. It contains plant-based protein, healthy unsaturated fats, and fiber.
Medjool dates for caramel: Regular caramel is made from pure sugar. We use date caramel in this recipe, made by blending dates in a food processor until smooth. Dates contain fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and potassium.
Lily’s Dark Chocolate for milk chocolate: Dark chocolate is higher in antioxidants than milk chocolate. Lily’s is my favorite brand of chocolate to bake with! Their bars are sweetened with stevia, so there is no added sugar. They also contain fiber, and they are absolutely delicious. They melt and behave just like sugar sweetened chocolate in recipes.
