Who knew Twix bars could be made healthy and still taste like the real deal? Well, Bethany Ugarte (@lilsipper) sure knew. If you don't know who this influencer is by now you are SO missing out. She focuses on clean ingredients and her stories will make your day. Head over to her blog and instagram when you are done making these bars!
This recipe is based off of Bethany's Twix Bar recipe and is made allergen friendly. Tiger Butter, dates, collagen, and gelatin are hidden under the yummy chocolate shell.
Thanks @danasfitfoods for capturing these amazing Twix bars. We're drooling.
1. 1 scoop vegan protein powder (hemp, pea, etc.)
2. 1/2 cup Tiger Butter
3. 1 scoop gelatin powder
4. 1 scoop collagen powder
5. 1 TB hot water (omit if adding 1 TB honey/maple syrup instead)
1. 3/4 cup dates preciously soaked in warm water for 20 minutes (drained)
2. 2 TB Tiger Butter
3. 1 TB water
4. 1/2 tsp salt
1. 1 bar of Guittard 100% cacao (baking bar)
1. Boil water and then place warm water in a bowl with the dates allowing them to soak.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl. mix gelatin, collagen, and protein powder together. Add in hot water or sweetener and mix well. Batter will be thick and dry.
3. Place batter on baking sheet and form into a square (about a half an inch thick). Bake for 8-10 minutes and then place in freezer.
3. As the first layer is in the freezer, grab a high quality blender (the smaller the easier). Drain water from the dates and blend them with Tiger Butter, water, and salt until a paste is formed. This is your caramel layer!
4. Remove first layer from the freezer and spread "caramel" evenly. Place the sheet back in the freezer as you melt the chocolate.
5. Place 1 bar of Guittard 100% cacao baking bars in a small saucepan over low heat. Mix and watch carefully so it does not burn.
6. Once the chocolate is melted, take the sheet out of the freezer and cut into desired shapes/sizes. Now coat with melted chocolate. Store these in the fridge or freezer.
