Raw Vegan Twix Style Bars

Recipe by Lara from Vanilla Crunnch

A healthy take on the classic twix bars. Tastes much better than the original. Did we mention that it’s gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free? It has a heavenly coconut-y base, a sweet date & caramel filling and rich dark chocolate coating, all made entirely from natural ingredients. Make a batch on the weekend and keep it in the freezer to enjoy throughout the week!
