What Are Keto Twix Bars?
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 an oven-baked one.

How To Make Keto Twix Bars
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.
You need the following to make these luscious keto caramel bars:
- Almond flour or almond meal – prefer unblanched fine almond flour to avoid a gritty texture.
- Coconut oil – you can use butter but not for the no-bake version, or the bottom layer will be too soft!
- Powdered erythritol – I recommend the powdered version instead of the crystal one to avoid that crunchy feeling in the caramel layer. To make your own powdered erythritol, place 1 cup of erythritol into a high-speed blender and pulse until it’s as fine as icing sugar. Measure and use it in this recipe. You can store the homemade powdered erythritol in the pantry in an airtight box for up to 6 months.
- Natural Peanut butter or almond butter or tahini – Yes, peanut butter is keto-friendly! Make sure you are using a fresh jar with no added sugar and no added oil. A fresh jar ensures a smooth caramel.
As long as you have all these ingredients, 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 in my pictures.
Otherwise, for a quick pick-me-up no-bake keto snack, go for the no-bake option!
Making The Shortbread Layer
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.
I recommend baking the bottom layer for 12 minutes at 350°F (180°C) before adding the caramel layer.
Making 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 a delicious combination.
Otherwise, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or tahini, also known as sesame seed butter, are also keto-approved.
Making The Chocolate Layer
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.
Making No-Bake Twix Bars
If you are opting for the no-bake keto bar option, there are a few things you need to know. You must:
- Use coconut oil – don’t swap for any other oil or butter, or the layer will fall apart.
- Freeze each layer for 10-12 minutes or until set before adding the next layer.
- Store the leftover bars in the fridge, especially if it is hot where you are.
Since these bars are egg-free and dairy-free, you can keep them in the fridge for up 10 days in an airtight container.
You can also freeze these Twix bars in an airtight container.
Defrost them on the counter at room temperature. It shouldn’t take more than 1 hour to fully defrost.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Twix Bars Can I Eat?
These Twix bars are very fulfilling keto snacks. One bar, as seen in the picture, contains only 2 grams 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.
How Can I Cut The Recipe Into 16 Servings?
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 1 gram of net carbs!
