Raw Snicker Bars
Snicker Bars would have to be one of my favorite chocolate bars so I wanted to re-create them by making a healthier option using whole ingredients and no refined sugar. These are so tasty and satisfying, I never want to eat a normal Snickers Bar again.
This recipe is very rich so you might only need to eat half of one to feel satisfied.
These raw Snickers Bars are gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and dairy free (if using cacao butter over dark chocolate). Enjoy!
For the base
½ cup of coconut flour
1 cup of sliced almonds
½ cup of raw maple syrup
1 cup of medjool dates (these need to be soaked in water for 30 mins to 1 hour before blending)
Sprinkle of himalayan salt
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
¼ cup of raw peanuts (cashews can be used if you are allergic to peanuts)
Top chocolate layer
100 grams cacao butter
6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
If you are unable to get cacao butter or cacao powder you can use 200 grams of 70% dark chocolate and 3 tablespoons of coconut oil for the top chocolate layer.
To make the bottom layer blend the coconut flour, sliced almonds and maple syrup together until smooth. On baking paper shape the mixture into small oblongs and place in the freezer.
To make the middle layer take the dates out of the water and blend in a food processor, add the salt, peanuts, vanilla and melted coconut oil. This layer doesn’t need to be really smooth, I kept the mixture quite chunky. Add this mixture on top of the first layer, make sure it is spread evenly. Place back into the freezer.
To make the top chocolate layer melt the cacao butter and sift the cacao powder into the butter. Add the melted coconut oil and mix together. If you are using dark chocolate melt it along with the coconut oil. Drizzle this evenly over the snicker bars and place in the freezer for an hour before serving.
