Snickers Bar!

Who doesn’t love snickers! Delicious caramel, biscuit base, crunchy peanut butter! This weekend I whipped up a slightly healthier version of a snickers bar, gluten free and vegan! They were the perfect weekend treat and kids would love them too!

I got the recipe from a recipe developer from social media known as ‘Healthy living James’. Definitely worth checking out if you need some recipes!

Ingredients for base:

  • 200g cashews
  • 200g gluten free rolled oats
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

Ingredients for the middle “snickers” layer:

  • 250g medjool dates (roughly 235g pitted weight)
  • 4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Handful of jumbo peanuts, unsalted
  • Pinch of salt

Ingredients for the chocolate topping:

  • 6 heaped tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 75g cacao powder


  1. Firstly pit the dates and place in a bowl of boiling water for roughly 10 minutes to soften
  2. Add all the base ingredients into a food processor and blend until the base forms
  3. Now line a baking tray with baking paper (I use a 10×8 tray as its the perfect size)
  4. Add the base mix to the tray and push down until your desired thickness
  5. Place in the freezer whilst the dates are still softening
  6. Once the dates have softened add all the “snickers” middle ingredients to a blender and whiz until smooth
  7. Take the base out the freezer and evenly layer the “snickers” mix on top
  8. Add the jumbo peanuts across the top and push them in slightly. Add back to the freezer whilst making the chocolate topping
  9. Now over a bain-marie add the melted coconut oil (I melt mine in the microwave to speed it up) along with the maple syrup. Gently whisk in the cacao powder bit by bit until its nice a thick
  10. Remove from the freezer and evenly pour the chocolate mix on top of and smooth out
  11. Place back in the freezer for 1 hour
  12. They are now ready to serve

I keep mine in an air tight container in the fridge!

Enjoy 🙂
