HEALTHY SNICKERS BAR RECIPE – How to Make Snickers Bar at Home with Dates and Oats 

Share

Today I am sharing the recipe for date-sweetened healthy Snickers chocolate bars. They taste very similar to the original “Snickers” bars, with no harmful ingredients.

Our healthy Snickers chocolate bars are made of dates and oats. No sugar is used in the recipe! Except for the chocolate, as it depends on what kind of chocolate you are going to use. You can use sugar-free chocolate made with some natural sweetener. Or you can use any kind of chocolate you want. For Snickers bars, it is better to use milk chocolate.

The filling of the chocolate bars is made of dates and oats! Super delicious !!!

HEALTHY SNICKERS BAR RECIPE – How to Make Snickers Bar at Home with Dates and Oats

Ingredients:
Caramel:
  • 280 grams (18 pieces) Medjool Dates, pitted;
  • 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter;
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract;
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt;

Nougat:

  • 75 grams (1/4 cup) Caramel (above);
  • 68 grams of Oatmeal (I used sprouted oatmeal);

Finish:

  • 70-80 grams (1/2 cup) Peanuts;
  • 200 grams (8 oz) of Chocolate.
How to make healthy Snickers chocolate bars with dates and oats:
  1. If your dates are not super soft, soak them in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Drain. Save the date water.
  2. Bake peanuts and oats at 350F (180C) separately for 5-7 minutes. You do not have to bake oats, but I decided to bake them as I wanted them cooked. You can also roast them in a skillet mixing them often. Let cool.
  3. Turn rolled oats into a powder (flour) in a coffee grinder.
  4. Place drained Medjool dates into a food processor cup. Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Process until smooth. If the mixture is very thick, you can add 1 tablespoon of date water that you saved and process until smooth. The caramel is ready. Transfer to another bowl leaving 1/4 cup of caramel in the food processor bowl.
  5. Add oat flour to the 1/4 cup of caramel and process till well incorporated. The mixture may seem crumbly, which is normal. It should hold a shape when squeezed. The nougat is ready.healthy snickers - caramel and nougat - organicbiomama.com
  6. Lay a form or tray with parchment paper. Place the nougat and flatten with your clean and dry fingers. Then add the caramel layer flattening it with a spoon. Spread the roasted peanuts gently pressing them down into the caramel. Freeze until the caramel layer hardens. Then cut into pieces. The bars are ready to be covered with chocolate.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Dip the bars to the chocolate covering them with it. Transfer onto a rack till they harden. When the chocolate hardens, transfer the bars to the freezer for an hour. After that, you can store them in the fridge or in the freezer.healthy snickers - filling - organicbiomama.comhealthy snickers with dates and oats - organicbiomama.com healthy snickers with dates and oats - cut - organicbiomama.com
