Snickers Bar Slice

 

This is so good. Similar to the Homemade Snickers Bars, this slice gives the sweetness and delicious chocolate/caramel flavour everyone loves, but is far healthy and free of nasty additives. The caramel is made from dates, which make a delicious sweet/salty filling and you won’t even realise it’s not made of butter, sugar and cream. This makes a delicious afternoon snack and will definitely satisfy your sweet cravings.

Not only is this gluten free and raw, but depending on what kind of chocolate you use, can easily be dairy free and vegan as well. So pretty much perfect for everyone apart from that one pesky friend with nut allergies.

Ingredients:

For the base:

  • 2 cups Almonds
  • 4 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ground Oats (until they form a flour consistency)

For the filling:

  • 12 large Medjool Dates (softened in hot water)
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Peanuts

For the topping:

  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil (melted)
  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. In a food processor, blend the Almonds for a few minutes until they form almond butter. Add Maple Syrup, Oat Flour and mix for another 30 seconds and then flatten onto baking tray and place in the freezer for half an hour
  3. To make the caramel, mix together the Dates, Water, Salt and Coconut Oil in a food processor until thick and well mixed. Spread over the base and sprinkle the chopped peanuts and freeze for another 45-60 minutes
  4. Melt the Chocolate Chips in the microwave for about 45 seconds, then mix with the coconut oil and pour over the slice. Keep in the fridge until chocolate is firm and slice (the peanuts make this slightly difficult to chop)
  5. Keep in the fridge as the coconut oil tends to melt at room temperature
