Gaby's Bakery - Vegan and Gluten-free 'Twix' Bars

I like finding popular favourites and making healthier versions. Inspired by Twix bars, here's my artisan version using healthier ingredients. 

Vegan and gluten-free ‘Twix’ bars

Ingredients:
For the biscuit base:
170g almond flour
3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt

For the caramel layer:
160g smooth peanut butter
80g maple syrup
40g coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt

For the chocolate covering:
120g dark chocolate chips (vegan)
1 tbsp coconut oil

Method:
Preheat oven to 175⁰C. Grease and line a 2lb cake tin with parchment paper.

In a bowl, add the almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until all ingredients come together. Put this in the prepared tin and press down until you have an even layer covering the base of the tin. Place this in the preheated oven for 12-15 mins, until edges have turned golden brown.

Whilst the biscuit layer is cooling, place the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and salt in a saucepan and heat on medium for a couple of minutes. The mixture will bubble slightly, keep mixing throughout. Once ready, take off the heat and pour over the biscuit layer. Place in the fridge for an hour to set.

Once the caramel layer has hardened, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil either in a bain-marie or slowly in the microwave. Take the base layers out of the cake tin and slice in equal sizes down the width of the bar. Place a piece of parchment paper on a tray and then dip each bar in the chocolate before placing on the parchment paper. Once all bars are covered place the tray in the fridge for another hour. The bars are then ready to enjoy. Best kept refrigerated as the chocolate will melt if left at room temperature.

Enjoy.

I don’t normally start by showing the back. But the breakage and damage was so bad that the entire top portion at the back had snapped off. Kazz had been paying a lot for hair colouring and for regular Olaplex treatments over the years. Yet her extremely damaged hair quality was something I regularly see. Unnecessarily weak thin broken hair, and dull colour.

How many Bobs have you got?

These quick clunky haircuts are becoming prolific as hairdressers become less and less able to layer hair properly. Emily had the very common 3-step Bob. The baseline, a step four inches off the bottom, and a sort of torn irregular piece suggestive of a long

I love long hair. But sometimes it’s better to cut it back and start again fresh. Especially when the ends have suffered serious over-processing of colour on multiple occasions. And it’s great to have a change too.
