This is the most excited I’ve been about writing up a recipe! This raw vegan snickers bar is pretty darn good. If you’re not into Snickers, all you have to do is take out the peanuts, and you’ve got yourself a delicious gooey, caramel chocolate bar. So so good!! The best part is, the ingredients are so simple, you can tweak it to your liking to give it the sweetness you want.
Ingredients: (used a standard bread pan, made 12 pieces – see below for pan recommendation)
2/3 cups oats
1 1/2 cup cashews
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of salt
20 pitted dates
2 tbsp coconut oil
2tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp water
5 tbsp maple syrup
Blend 1 cup raw cacao powder with 3 tbsp water or almond milk. Add 1 tbsp maple syrup for sweetness. Keep adding more as you stir, until it becomes a spreadable consistency.
Peanuts – optional
*PAN RECOMMENDATION: I used a rectangular pan which meant I had to end up cutting it. This cracked the chocolate on top and created a huge mess. I would suggest using a muffin tray or a silicone mold for a cleaner appearance.
1.) Mix all the base layer ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Place in pan. Put in freezer until ready for caramel.
2.) Mix all caramel ingredients together in blender until smooth. Pour on top of base layer. Place chopped peanuts on top. Put in freezer until chocolate is ready.
