Snickers bar is probably one of the most popular candy bars around the world that popped on shops’ shelves back in 1930. As much as it’s delicious it is also full of refined sugar and other additives. Although, for all of you (*us) who love the caramely, nutty aspect of snickers but cbare for your health and wellness, I have much better alternative. The homemade Raw Snickers Bar that is easy peasy to make and full of nutrients and fibre.
*high power blender needed
INGREDIENTS (makes a tray 20cm x 15 cm or 12 muffins mould)
- 2 cups of almond meal*
- 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
- 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
- dash of sweetener to taste
*if you like more coarser texture you can just blend raw almonds to desired texture and use instead of almond meal (like I did – scroll down for a photo)

- 1/2 cup honey or agave syrup
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tsp mesquite powder
- two handfuls of raw peanuts
- 8tbsp cacao powder
- 6 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- 4 tbsp honey
For the base, prepare a rectangular tin with baking paper or silicone muffin mould*. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well, taste and add more honey if needed. Press the mixture into a prepared tin and put in the freezer.
*you can also use a regular muffin mould and use muffin cases or cover it with cling film
For the filling, place all ingredients, besides peanuts, in a blender and blend until it comes together. Stir in peanuts and press the mixture on top of the base layer and freeze for couple of hours.
For the chocolate, place all ingredients in a small bowl and stir. Spread over the top of the filling. Freeze or keep in the fridge if you prefer a bit softer consistency.
Enjoy with cup of turmeric late, delicious!
