Homemade Snicker Bars
Yes - tastes just like a Snicker bar. Only better. All natural ingredients too. Impossible? Try it and see! All credit goes to nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert for this.
Ingredients - makes around 16 - 24 bars
For the base
75g pecan nuts
3 tbsp coconut oil
75ml maple syrup or honey
Pinch of salt
For the caramel
500g pitted dates
3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
Pinch of salt (unless you are using salted peanuts)
75g peanut halves
200g dark chocolate
1 - Line a small brownie tin with baking paper.
2 - Pulse the peanuts, pecans and oats in a food processor until they forma flour.
3 - Put the coconut oil and maple syrup/honey into a pan. Heat gently until the coconut oil melts. Stir in the nut and oat flour until it forms a sticky ball then press evenly into the brownie tin. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
4 - For the peanut caramel, place the dates, water and peanut butter into a food processor. Blend until smooth. Stir in the halved peanuts.
5 - Remove the base from the freezer and press the mixture in top evenly. Put back into the freezer for an hour.
6 - Melt the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl or bain marie. Remove the mixture from the freezer and cut into bars of your size. Using a couple of cocktail sticks, dip into the chocolate and then allow to set on a wire rack.
7 - Eat immediately or place in a sealable container in the fridge where they will last for 3-4 days. Or freeze and remove when you want one.
