So many of you asked about my healthy snickers recipe, so here it is:

Ingredients:
– about 200 grams pitted dates
– 1 ½ deciliter salted peanuts, roughly chopped
– 1 ½ deciliter oats
– ½ teaspoon pure vanilla powder
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
– 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter

Toppings:
– 100 grams dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao), melted
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
– 1-2 teaspoons peanut butter
– a couple of chopped peanuts

Preperation:
1 Start by adding the dates to a food processor and pulse until you get a gooey paste. Add the date paste, roughly chopped peanuts, oats, pure vanilla powder, coconut oil and peanut butter to a bowl and mix everything well. Make sure to knead the ingredients together until everything is well mixed and you have a cohesive dough – I just use a wet spoon to do this
2 Line a pan, plastic container or whatever you have available with parchment paper or plastic foil for easy removal and add the dough – make sure you press it in real tight. Mix the melted dark chocolate and the melted coconut oil and our it onto the date mixture, leave it in the freezer for at least an hour to harden
3. Now, all there is left to do is to cut it into bars of your desired size, decorate them with a peanut butter drizzle & chopped peanuts if you’d like and they’re ready to eat
4. Enjoy

Note: Store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer, they should keep up to two weeks when stored in the fridge or freezer.

Let me know if you like it

Love, Vanessa
