I admit, I normally bake using full fat ingredients, cutting no corners. I make sweets like grandma used to make, but every once in a while I try a new, healthier version of an old favorite and am pleasantly surprised. I stumbled upon this recipe for Raw Twix Bars and had to share.
They take a bit of elbow grease and patience, but once they are complete, they are totally worth it. And….you don’t even have to feel guilty about eating them! I taste tested them out on my friends and they agree, this is one to keep. Recipe is pasted below.
