Raw Vegan Twix Bars

This recipe is adapted from @healthy_bodyspiritmind on instagram. Im posting the recipe for those without instagram! :)

Ingredients:

FUDGE BASE:

  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp raw agave 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • **Put all base ingredients into a food processor and blend until a dough is formed. Line the bottom of a 8x8 pan with the dough, and place in the freezer**
COOKIE:
  • 1 cup raw almonds 
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp raw agave
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • **Place cookie ingredients in a food processor and blend until a dough is formed. Remove the pan with the base from the freezer and layer the cookie on top. Place back in freezer when this step is done**
CARMEL FILLING:
  • 25 medjool dates (soft)
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • **Place all filling ingredients in a food processor and blend until it's smooth. First I blend all the dates, and I add the rest of the ingredients and blend.When it's smooth, run the knife under water to make it easier to spread over the cookie layer, then place back in freezer**
CHOCOLATE COATING:
  • 3 tbsp agave
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • **When the filling is hardened, place the chocolate layer on top. Make sure you melt the coconut oil, it makes a big difference. Place in freezer for at least 4 hours and then cut into squares**
* If you want the chocolate to be thinner than what I made, you simply need to follow a 1:2:1 ratio between agave, cocoa powder, and coconut oil. For example, you could do 2 tbsp agave, 4 tbsp cocoa powder, and 2 tbsp coconut oil.

ENJOY!!!! THESE ARE SO YUMMY!!!
