December 21, 2022
A healthy version of a candy bar classic. These rich and smooth vegan snickers bars are not only healthier but also incredibly delicious. The perfect treat for anyone's taste.
Eating healthy can be hard, especially when it comes to desserts. I mean who doesn't love chocolate? But what if I told you there was a way to get chocolate into your body without having to feel guilty about it? These snickers bars will give you everything you love about snickers and nothing you don't.
I know you're thinking, "Healthy Snickers Bars? Are you nuts?" But wait until you try these! They are delicious, healthy, low calorie and totally satisfy your sweet tooth.
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.
