SUBSTITUTES

Here are all the ingredients and substitutes that you need to make these healthy snickers bars:

  • Oat flour:  If you don't have oat flour, you can add in blender oats and blend for a couple of seconds. You can also replace it with almond flour!
  • Peanut butter: any nut butter will work, but for snickers, we need peanut butter!
  • Milk: For a low-calorie option use unsweetened plant-based milk such as almond, coconut, soya, or rice milk.
  • No calorie syrup: For sugar-free bars, I suggest using syrup without calories. There are plenty no calorie syrups out there, but what I use most is syrup from Myprotein. But if you don't mind these extra calories, you can also replace it with honey, agave or maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener you like.
  • Medjool dates: If you don't have or don't wish to use dates, you can substitute equal amounts of dried figs, dried raisins or dried cranberries.
  • Salted Roasted Peanuts: if you have raw peanuts, bake them for about 10 minutes. Also, add salt to the caramel layer mixture.
  • Chocolate coating: I have used dark chocolate sweetened with stevia, however, you may use any chocolate of preference.
  • Coconut oil: coconut oil is optional, and is used to thin out the chocolate.

Ingredients

  • Base layer
  • 120 g 1 cup oat flour

  • 80 g 1/3 cup peanut butter

  • 160 ml 2/3 cup almond milk

  • 80 g 1/4 cup no calorie syrup

  • Caramel layer
  • 16 16 Medjool dates

  • 80 g 1/4 cup no calorie syrup

  • 80 g 1/3 cup peanut butter

  • 60 g 2/5 cup salted roasted peanuts

  • Chocolate coating
  • 150 g 5 2/7 oz stevia-sweetened chocolate

  • 1 tsp 1 tsp coconut oil

Directions

  • Line an 8x8 brownie pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap.
  • In a bowl combine oat flour, peanut butter, almond milk and syrup of choice. Pour into the brownie pan and freeze for about 50-60 minutes. This is your base layer.
  • In the meantime prepare the caramel. Initially soak Medjool dates for 5-10 minutes, before removing the seed.
  • In a food processor/high-speed blender add Medjool dates, syrup and peanut butter. Process until completely smooth for about 5-10 minutes. This is your caramel layer.
  • Pour the caramel layer on top of the frozen base layer, fold in the roasted peanuts and freeze for another 60 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan add chocolate and coconut oil. Heat over low until completely melted.
  • Remove the snicker mixture from the freezer, and cut evenly into 10 equally sized snicker bars. Dip the snickers bars into the melted chocolate and transfer them onto a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Notes

  • Store bars in the refrigerator covered, for up to 1 week. Bars are freezer friendly and will keep well frozen for up to 1 month.
