Guest Recipe: Raw Twixy Biscuits and a Bargain!

by Polly N on August 6, 2012

Today I have a very special guest post from the lovely Victoria Leith, otherwise known as Little Guru. She has been kind enough to contribute a delicious recipe from her latest recipe book Sweet Angel Cake Un-Bakery.
Here’s a note from Victoria on how to make them:

I don’t know about you but Twix’s are one of my all-time favourite chocolate biscuits bars! But I don’t want to spend the rest of my life scoffing sugar, wheat and dairy so when I fancy a fix, I make these!

Ingredients:

The Biscuit Base

  • 1 cup buckwheaties *
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup medjool dates

* if not available, use 1/2 cup dried mulberries and 1/2 cup almonds whizzed to a flour but buckwheaties are best to get the real biscuit crunch! You can make your own buckwheaties or order them from www.detoxyourworld.com

Process the above ingredients in the food processor – give them a good whizz, then add:

3 tbsp cacao butter (melted) and whizz again.
Then press this mixture into a cling-film lined rectangle pan, about 1/2 cm thick. Pop into the freezer whilst you make the caramel middle.

The Caramel Middle

  • Soak 1 cup medjool dates in hot water from the kettle for 15 minutes
  • Blend with:
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tbsp almond nut butter
  • 5 tbsp cacao butter

You want to blend this really well but don’t worry if you can see a bit of date… it adds to the beauty of the finished recipe! Take the biscuit base out of the freezer and spread the caramel mixture over the top. Pop back in the freezer.

The Chocolate Topping

Blend:

  • 1 cup cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp nut butter or 5 tbsp shelled hemp seeds
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lecithin
  • 3 tbsp chocolate powder

Take the pan out of the freezer with the cooled biscuit and caramel layers and pour the thick chocolate over the top.

Freeze again and then cut into fingers!

I am so disgusting but I used to bite the end of Twix and use them as a straw in tea so the chocolate would melt and caramel go all gooey..who am I kidding, I still do. But since I am trying to improve my diet I think I may just have to make this! Thanks Victoria!!

Thank you so much for this. I adore Twixes, but since becoming Vegan have been unable to eat them. I have bought the coconut sugar, and once I’ve got the cacao butter, I’ll be making these. Yum. I can’t wait.
