Rich, sticky, gooey and all kinds of delicious, this homemade version of an old favourite is a great slice to make on a lazy afternoon – no baking required!
My friend Tara and I created this recipe one afternoon, so easy to make, all you need is a few ingredients and a food processor.
Whats good: peanuts are a good source of vitamin E, good fats and protein. Please note, although this is raw and made of all kinds of lovely unprocessed ingredients (and so much better for you than the original Snickers!), this is still high in natural sugars and kilojoules -so definitely an occasional treat food.
- For the base:
- ½ C almonds
- 1 C Peanuts
- 1 C oats
- 2 flat tbsp honey
- 1 banana
- For the caramel:
- 15 dates heated in the microwave with 2 tbsp water (or pour over boiling water and let soak for 15 mins)
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 tbsp tahini
- A pinch a sea salt
- For the topping:
- 100g high quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
- handful peanuts
- For the base: combine all ingredients in a food processor until a dough forms. Add additional oats if too wet.
- Line a small slice tray with baking paper and press base mix into a smooth even layer. Place in the freezer while you do the next bit.
- For the caramel: combine all ingredients in the food processor until smooth, add salt to taste (can omit). Spread this over the base layer and place back in the freezer to set.
- Chocolate: finely chop the chocolate and melt in a double boiler (sit a bowl over the top of a pan of boiling water) or in the microwave, stirring every 20-30 secs.
- Spread this quickly over your caramel then top with peanuts. Place in fridge to set completely then chop.
- Try not to eat it all at once (easier said than done) and keep in the fridge.
