This is the BEST easy keto Twix bar recipe. A sweet shortbread crust topped with peanut butter caramel and chocolate, 100% sugar-free and gluten-free. If you crave your favorite Twix candy bars, these keto Twix bars will fix it with only 2g of net carbs per serve.
My keto Twix bars are your alternative to the popular store-bought Twix candy bar. It is made of a shortbread almond flour biscuit topped with peanut butter caramel and dark chocolate. I’m sharing here two versions of it with either a no-bake shortbread or with an oven-baked one.
You won’t believe how simple it is to make homemade Twix bars, in particular, this healthy version with no sugar. All you need are a few simple pantry ingredients. Yes, this recipe is 100% dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan too. So, you need the following to make these luscious keto caramel bars:
As soon as you have all these ingredients on hands, you are ready to make your no-bake keto bars. Well, you have two options. If you love a crispy shortbread layer that mimics your favorite Twix bars then I recommend you bake the bottom layer as seen on my pictures. Otherwise, for a quick pick-me-up no-bake keto snack, go for the no-bake option!
There are two options to make these keto Twix bars. First, you can choose to keep it raw and therefore create a no-bake keto bar. It means none of the layers will be baked at all. That’s my favorite option when I crave a sweet treat as it is faster to make and the result is great, with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth caramel bar. Then, if you want to make a crispy shortbread layer like you used to love in store-bought Twix bars, then I recommend you bake the bottom layer for 12 minutes at 350F (180C), before adding the caramel layer.
You can make the caramel layer with many variations. If you love peanut butter flavor I recommend this option, peanut butter caramel is delicious. Otherwise, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or tahini also known as sesame seed butter are keto-approved too.
Sugar-free stevia-sweetened chocolate is the best. You can choose sugar-free dark chocolate or sugar-free milk chocolate to get even closer to the flavor of store-bought Twix bars. Also, if you can’t find sugar-free stevia chocolate in-store, 85% dark chocolate is keto-friendly as well.
If you are opting for the no-bake keto bar option there are a few things you need to know. You must:
Yes, you can freeze these keto Twix bars in an airtight container. Simply defrost on the counter at room temperature. It shouldn’t take more than 1 hour to defrost.
These Twix bars are very fulfilling keto snacks. One bar as seen on the picture contains only 2g of net carbs and 178 kcal. As a general rule, 1 bar is enough to fix your sweet tooth and hunger. If you want to decrease carbs and/or calories, cut the whole recipe into 32 bars instead of 16 bars.
To make sure you end up with 16 Twix bars of the same size with this recipe you must use a 7-inch x 11-inch slice pan (or 9-inch x 9-inch brownie pan) and divide the bars as per the pictures below. If you use a larger pan you won’t have enough batter to cover the pan with each layer. A smaller pan like a loaf pan would be too small and you would get fewer bars and therefore more carbs per bar. For fewer carbs, divide the final bars in half again. It will result in thinner Twix bars similar to the store-bought ones but with only 1g net carbs!
