What is better than a delicious dessert? A functional dessert with benefits.
I love making re-makes of some of my childhood favorites, and Twix is definitely one of them. The gooey caramel center with the crisp cookie & chocolate - it really doesn’t get any better, except for now!
These gut healthy Twix are gluten free, dairy free & paleo friendly. Filled with Just Thrive’s incredible spore-based probiotic - meant to survive the journey to your gut. It also survives in up to 400 degrees of heat Which makes it the perfect recipe companion to maintain optimum gut health!
Paring your probiotic with a prebiotic is essential. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in the gut and allow them to flourish and thrive. I love my Just Thrive PREbiotic drink mix. But, one of my favorite natural prebiotics to cook with are dates! They are nature's candy and they always help to get things moving. They have a caramel like flavor so they make up the majority of the date caramel gooey center.
The shortbread, date, chocolate + sea salt come together for the most heavenly bite that will make you and your gut happy. Enjoy!
