Being Paleo is not always easy, so when a deliciously simple recipe comes along that’s also Paleo, you’re going to want to jump on it. We promise this Twix Bar recipe from our friends at PaleoHacks will not dissapoint.
Going Paleo can be tough if you like sweets. Candy bars are high in sugar and low in nutrients. If you’ve got a craving for one, however, you may be tempted to cave.
Don’t do it just yet. Instead, try making one yourself with Paleo-approved ingredients. This Twix bar recipe uses a coconut flour shortbread and has a creamy caramel sauce sandwiched between the cookie and chocolate. Just like the real thing. And it’s much better for you.
Wondering how this is possible? Try it yourself and see. You’ll never go back the real thing again.
