Paleo Twix Bars

These Paleo Twix Bars are dangerously good. There, I’ve warned you.

Some of my friends came over last night to watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. We opened a few bottles of champagne and made a toast to long-lasting friendship. We ate, laughed, watched fit women walk down the runway, ate again and drank plenty. I love my friend time and I honestly don’t think I have enough of it. It is so important to create memories with friends and to be there for each other (for the good, the bad, and the ugly). I specially adore having them over at my house. I love being able to share my home and provide a welcoming space, where they feel like it’s their own.

You know what is one of my favorite things about having them over? Making them try my newest Paleo recipes. I love watching their faces as they savor the first bite…their expressions let me know if the recipe is a “no go” or a “go” for my blog (thanks girls)!

Last night I have them try the delicious Paleo Twix Bar. I think they were pretty pleased. I know my husband was for sure, he has had at least 4 bars. One of my friends even wanted to take an extra one home so she could take it to work the next day. How cute is she?

I am sharing this recipe with you my Amazing Paleo family, because it might be a good excuse for you to have friends over and share yummy homemade healthy treats while creating long-lasting memories. Have fun making and eating them!

These Paleo Twix Bars are made Paleo, with macadamia nuts, dates and dark chocolate. Delicious, nourishing and healthy!
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10 Twix Bars
Ingredients
For the shortbread:
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
For the caramel:
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 tbsp SunButter
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp purified water
For the chocolate coating:
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
Instructions
  1. Prepare the shortbread: line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add in macadamia nuts to a food processor, and process until you reach a flour consistency. Add in maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt, and process just until ingredients are well incorporated. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture, shape it into a long tube (2 ½” - 3” long) and place on top of the lined baking sheet. Do this with the remainder of the mixture. Place baking sheet in the freezer.
  3. Prepare the caramel: Add dates, sun butter, salt and water to a food processor, and process until all ingredients have mixed. Take out baking sheet from the freezer and top each shortbread stick with the caramel, covering each completely. Place baking sheet back in the freezer.
  4. Make the chocolate coating: melt chocolate chips, dip each stick in the chocolate (coating it completely) and place back on the parchment paper. Repeat this with all of the sticks. Freeze overnight and enjoy.

    1. Hey Cath! Awesome! Be sure to let them freeze overnight before enjoying them…that way they are nice and crunchy for ya ;). Leave them in the freezer thereafter as well!

      1. Thanks for the link – I found a new health food shop yesterday and guess what it stocked!!!! Am looking forward to making these now!

        1. Oh, how awesome!!! Be sure to leave them frozen over night so that they are nice and crunchy when you eat them, Allie 😉

  1. Wow, um just made these for a Christmas party and I am super pleased, they are very tasty and they weren’t really as hard as they looked at first. Good Recipe, thanks for sharing!

  2. I stumbled across your blog whilst searching for ‘almond butter’ recipes. I am so glad it popped up in Google. You’ve got some great recipes and this one has me wanting to go back to the shops to buy ingredients!

  3. I got all excited when I clicked on this recipe…and then, found out that it’s not paleo. Chocolate chips aren’t paleo (have dairy in them…and some sugar), maple syrup isn’t paleo at all, salt is also a no go, and the sunflower butter might be a no go if there are other oils mixed in with it. Bummer

    1. Hello Katie…reading this comment troubled me a bit. ALL of my ingredients are Paleo approved. See below.

      All natural sea salt: IS Paleo
      Organic maple syrup: IS Paleo
      Organic Unsweetened Sunbutter: IS Paleo
      Dark chocolate chips: ARE Paleo

      Don’t be afraid to use these in moderation. Of course eating fresh vegetables, fruits and organic protein is fantastic for your body..but utilizing other all-natural ingredients to create fantastic recipes, is part of the Paleo diet as well. You’ll see that the Paleo diet is a lot more enjoyable this way. 😉

  4. OMG!! these are amazing my friends are begging for more!! I did use coconut sugar and added only a little maple syrup. No sunbutter so I used almond butter. I made a double batch and ran out of macadamia nuts so added almonds worked great!! Thank you. Oh, and Katie you can buy dairy and soy free chocolate chips and they are the best 🙂

    1. Aren’t those to die for?! We absolutely adore those too…they were gone in no time! I’m glad you decided to give them a try and make them. Paleo is so yummy, yay Paleo! Thanks for your comment, Tammie, I appreciate it. 😉
