- For the shortbread base
- 2 cups / 200g almond flour (to my UK readers – ground almonds work fine here)
- 1 medium egg
- 1 tsp vanilla essence or vanilla bean powder
- For the caramel
- 1 cup 240ml coconut milk (full fat, from a can)
- 4 tbsp sukrin fibre syrup
- pinch of salt
- For the chocolate topping
- 1/4 cup / 60g coconut oil
- 1/4 cup / 20g cacao powder
- 1 tbsp sukrin fibre syrup
- alternatively: 80g (1/3 cup melted chocolate, at least 85% cocoa solids
- Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius/350 Fahrenheit.
- First, make the shortbread base. Simply mix the almond flour with the egg and vanilla. Either roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper or line a 9×6 inch pan with baking paper and press the dough down evenly.
- Bake for ca 25 minutes or until lightly browned
- Next, make the caramel. Bring the coconut milk and fibre syrup to the boil. Turn the heat down and let it bubble away gently until it has reduced by half.
- When the shortbread is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool down.
- Spread over the caramel and place in the fridge for 10 minutes until it has firmed up.
- Now make the chocolate topping – either heat coconut oil in a pan until liquid and add the cacao powder plus 1 tbsp of fibre syrup. Alternatively, melt 80g of dark chocolate (minimum 85% cocoa solids or higher).
- Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel layer and let it firm up in the fridge.
- Cut into bars and enjoy!
If you want to use a full can of coconut milk (normally 400ml), increase the amount of fibre syrup to 7 tbsp. You’ll have some leftovers for waffles/ice cream or pancakes. Just put it into an air tight container and keep it in the fridge.
These bars are quite dense and filling. I found that a good size was around 25g. Therefore, my bars ended up smaller than your regular shop-bought Twix.
