Meatless Monday with a Vegan Halloween Healthier Peanut Butter Twix

Welcome to the Miratel blog and to our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment

Most popular chocolate bars are made of milk chocolate so they are not vegan and never is this more apparent than around Halloween. In the spirit of Halloween, we thought we would feature a recipe for a traditional chocolate bar made vegan like today’s Healthier Peanut Butter Twix. According to the chef who created this great recipe, “It’s the month of candy, and sadly Twix bars are not vegan! But this recipe completely satisfies your Twix-y cravings while upping the ante with peanut butter. These bars are surprisingly easy to make and also gluten-free! You’ll find that the most difficult part is waiting for the chocolate to set.” This delicious recipe comes courtesy of Amanda Smith of Create N Plate via the always inspiring One Green Planet.

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE COOKIE LAYER:

  • 1 cup gluten-free coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free oatsMiratel supports Meatless Monday and considers it a CSR business strategy as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on the planet
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

FOR THE REST:

  • 2 cups dates
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 7 ounces vegan dark chocolate

PREPARATION

TO MAKE THE COOKIE LAYER:

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor. Blend until mixture is combined.
  2. Press into a pan lined with parchment paper. Set aside.

TO MAKE THE TWIX BARS:

  1. Place dates in food processor. Pulse a few times until they’re chopped up. Slowly begin to add water. Start with 1/2 cup — how much water you use will depend on how gooey your dates are.
  2. Continually add water while blending until a smooth paste is formed. Add in peanut butter and blend until mixed.
  3. Pour mixture into 6×9-inch pan. Place in freezer and allow to set up for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Remove bars from freezer and slice into long pieces, just like a candy bar.
  5. Melt 8 ounces of dark chocolate and dip bars into the chocolate; coating them completely.
  6. Place them on the baking sheet and into the refrigerator to set up. Serve.

NOTES

  • Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to seven days or in the freezer for a few weeks.
