Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix

It’s the last day of Vegan MoFo and I am celebrating with a big ol’ batch of homemade gluten-free vegan Twix bars. Who’s with me?

themeSometimes the annoying thing about making homemade treats that are without gluten, eggs, and dairy is that they end up being time-consuming. A lot of people ask if I will just ship them the candy I have been making because it’s too much work to make them at home, to which my reply is: I totally get it. There are those rare moments when you really feel like finding your candy thermometer and making a mess in the kitchen just to get a batch of Homemade Heath Bars to indulge in.

For my last candy recipe for VeganMoFo, I wanted to make it an easy task to recreate your favorite candy treat available in gluten, egg, and dairy-free form. Today I bring to you No-Bake Homemade Twix Bars.

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix - Fork & Beans

The cookie layer is all thanks to Dr, Lucy’s. Have you heard of this cookie brand?

I was introduced to Dr. Lucy’s cookies through my sister a couple of years ago. Her oldest daughter has severe food allergies so finding allergen-free tasty food items has always been a trick (now you might understand why I started Fork & Beans). When I first took a bite of these little treats, I was surprised at how good they tasted. And no, they did not contact me to do a review–I just really support what they are doing.

Serves: 8
Ingredients
For Date Caramel
  • 4 Medjool Dates, pits removed (optional: soaked)
  • 1 Tb water
  • 1-2 tsp. agave nectar (depends on taste)
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions
For Date Caramel
  1. Mix all ingredients into a high-speed blender for 3-5 minutes, or until smooth. If it's too thick, add 1 tsp water at a time. You want it thick enough to blend but not runny.
  2. Place into the fridge to cool.
  3. Place 1 tsp, date caramel sauce on top of 1 Lucy sugar cookie. Repeat for each cookie.
  4. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  5. Dip each cookie gently in melted chocolate and fully coat.
  6. Place on a parchment paper-lined plate to set and freeze for 10 minutes.

I have been seeking out raw recipes after much research on the great benefits..my family which consists of 3 young children, one whom is allergic to peanuts and dairy seems to do be stronger in health since we became  vegan, but also his immunity is greater when eating raw. finally a raw chef with easy tasty desserts that my whole family can enjoy, i would LOVE to have a copy of this recipe book!!

  1. These look so good! But I cant have the Lucy cookies because they have soy in them. Would I be able to substitute them with your sugar cookie recipe? Or is there something else you suggest to get that crunchy taste? Thanks so much! I love your recipes I’ve made!

  2. OMG I love twix and I haven’t had one in ages…don’t do sugar. I am not vegan, I follow a paleo diet for the most part when I look to satsfy my sweet tooth I look for raw desserts. I can indulge once in awhile guilt free :)

  3. Wow, these might just be too good to pass out on Halloween! Thanks for sharing!

  4. OMG, Twix are my favorite and now that I’m vegan they are a no no. I will definitely have to make these! You’re amazing, thank you!

  5. Brilliant! I am certainly going to make these next month. Thank you!

  6. WOW! These look lovely! I understand about the time consuming part, so it is nice to have something a little quick once and a while.

  7. These look absolutely divine – I can’t wait to make them! <3

  8. Now if I actually had some cookies. You know you can’t find that kind of stuff in Waxahachie. I suppose I could buy a case, cover them with caramel and chocolate and send them to Aunt Kookie’s darlings? Although I suspect one of them is probably in the kitchen right now making date paste. <3

  9. So yummeh! Congrats, Maria!

  10. Awwww. Now if your older sister actually made the things of which you speak for her oldest daughter, then that would be another story. We ❤ our Auntie Kookie!!!!
