Homemade Paleo Twix Bars

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


These paleo copycat Twix bars are a healthier alternative to a classic candy! They’re nut-free, made with real food ingredients, and can be made AIP-friendly.



Units Scale

For the shortbread

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the caramel

  • 1 13.5 oz can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • Pinch of salt

For the chocolate coating


For the shortbread

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and line an 8×8″ baking pan with parchment paper
  2. Start with the crust by mixing together the two flours, and then stirring in the wet ingredients until well combined.
  3. Evenly flatten the crust in the bottom of the pan and puncture the crust with a fork about 10-15 times.
  4. Bake the crust until lightly golden brown for about 25-30 minutes. Set aside and allow to completely cool.

For the caramel

  1. Combine the coconut milk and coconut sugar in a medium saucepan and whisk well. Set over medium-low heat and allow to come to a medium simmer, stirring often for about 25-30 minutes or until thick caramel forms.
  2. Pour the caramel over the shortbread and spread evenly. Transfer to the fridge for 2-3 hours (or overnight) to allow it to set.

For the chocolate coating

  1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together with a method of your choice (I prefer a double boiler method).
  2. Pour the chocolate over the hardened caramel and spread it into an even layer. Allow the pan to cool slightly before transferring to the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden completely.
  3. Transfer the Twix to a cutting board and top with some salt. Use a sharp knife to cut into 12 (or more or less depending on the size you’d prefer) bars. Serve immediately or store in the fridge with parchment paper separating the bars to avoiding sticking.
