In attempt to make the ever-present decision of whether to have a piece of candy or a cookie, I finally gave up and said, “Why not both?!”
As a result, these Vegan Twix Cookies were born!
And, you guys, they’re perfectly balanced with the right amount of sweet chocolate and incredibly gooey caramel in the convenience of a cookie! No melty chocolate hands here – okay, that part might be a lie, but we’re working on it!
Anyway, to make this recipe, all you have to do is preheat your oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, divide your batter into 8 equal parts, and roll it into balls. Next, flatten the dough into a cookie shape. Bake the cookies for 6 minutes.
Then, add your caramel, bake for another 4-6 minutes, and melt your chocolate while the cookies cool. Finally, dollop a little (or a lot) of the chocolate onto each caramel piece. Let the cookies cool completely, and enjoy! Gone are the days of choosing between desserts.

Vegan Twix Cookies
Just like your favorite candy bar but made with whole-food ingredients, these Vegan Twix Cookies are the perfect afternoon treat or healthier dessert!
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp oil melted coconut or avocado
- 4 vegan caramels
- 2 tbsp dairy-free chocolate
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the almond flour, maple syrup, and oil.
Using your hands, divide the batter into 8 equal parts, roll them into balls and place them on the parchment paper.
Again, using your hands, flatten the cookie dough balls out until they are about 1 1/2-2 inches wide. You can ‘clean’ the outsides of the cookies up to make them look more uniform by running your fingers around the perimeter and lightly pushing the dough back together.
Once flattened, bake for 6 minutes.
While the cookies are baking, cut each caramel piece in half to make 8 pieces.
Once the cookies have baked for 6 minutes, remove them from the oven and place a caramel half on each cookie.
Place the cookies back in the oven for 4-6 minutes or until the cookies are starting to brown around the edges.
While the cookies start to cool, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments until melted, making sure to stir frequently.
Once the cookies have cooled for a few minutes, dollop a little the melted chocolate on top of the melted caramel.
Let them cool completely before enjoying! *You can speed up the cooling process by putting the cookies in the fridge for 30 minutes.
