Homemade Raw Snickers Bars from Julia and Libby Matthews
A healthier option using whole ingredients and no refined sugar
Check out these three layer bars! Back in September 2013, Libby from JuliaandLibby.com blog posted this recipe, without the picture above, which comes from instagram. The picture has since been added to a recent Facebook post of the recipe.
This is what Libby has to say about them.
“Snicker Bars would have to be one of my favorite chocolate bars so I wanted to re-create them by making a healthier option using whole ingredients and no refined sugar. These are so tasty and satisfying, I never want to eat a normal Snickers Bar again.
This recipe is very rich so you might only need to eat half of one to feel satisfied.
These raw Snickers Bars are gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and dairy free (if using cacao butter over dark chocolate). Enjoy!”
For the base
½ cup of coconut flour
1 cup of sliced almonds
½ cup of raw maple syrup
1 cup of medjool dates (these need to be soaked in water for 30 mins to 1 hour before blending)
Sprinkle of himalayan salt
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
¼ cup of raw peanuts (cashews can be used if you are allergic to peanuts)
Top chocolate layer
100 grams cacao butter* (or see below)
6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder*
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
If you are unable to get cacao butter or cacao powder you can use 200 grams of 70% dark chocolate and 3 tablespoons of coconut oil for the top chocolate layer.
Instructions: you can find instructions on how to make this at the Julia and Libby blog.
