Think chocolate Twix but the healthy version; as if you can make a standard Twix healthier then your onto a winner right?! This Donut version of the class twix is high in protein, packed with healthy nuts, vegan and gluten free. It also makes a great Keto snack as its low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats.
If I can take any classic snack and make it healthier then I’ll sure give it a go. I’m often surprised by the outcome and that I actually prefer the healthier version to the original and this one was no exception. Its refined sugar free and therefore doesn’t have that sickly sweet taste you get with shop bought biscuits. Equally its high in all the things you want in an afternoon pick me up….. protein (8g a slice) and heathy fats. Even though its packed with healthy fats its still lower in calories than many snacks and desserts at only 170 calories.
The centre combination of the tahini, peanut butter and maca powder works so well to give a very authentic caramel taste without the sugar overload. You can use whatever nut butter you like and you can also sub the tahini for extra nut butter if you prefer.
Ofcourse, if you don’t have a donut tray you can make these into like square size bars, the donut shape was just for a bit of fun.
Heres the recipe….
- 70g (1/2 cup) Vanilla Protein
- 40g (1/2 cup) Coconut Flour
- 25g (1/3 cup) Coconut Oil
- 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
