Vegan Healthy Twix Chocolate Bars

Vegan Healthy Chocolate Bars are a gluten free and vegan version of the classic Twix candy bar. Three decadent layers of almond flour shortbread, chewy cashew butter caramel and bittersweet chocolate topped with flaky salt. 

A vegan chocolate coated Twix candy bars with a big bite taken out.

It’s officially September which means it’s time to start thinking about Fall flavors like caramel.

With Halloween just around the corner, I had to make a healthier and vegan version of my candy bar: Twix.

Last year I made these millionaire chocolate bars and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. SO GOOD!
