Raw Snickers Slice

This recipe is raw, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, paleo, vegan and all that good stuff. The ingredients are adjusted to produce around 12 slices, but can be tweaked to how many you want to make.

Honestly tastes just like a snickers bar; gooey, crunchy and chocolatey whilst still being healthy!

Serves 12

Ingredients

Base

1/2 cup oats (gluten free)

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

2 tbl rice malt

Pinch of sea salt

2 tbl raw peanuts

1/2 cup raw cashews

Vanilla essence

Middle

2 cup dates, soaked

3 tbl smooth peanut butter

Pinch of sea salt

2 tbl Rice malt syrup

2 tbl Coconut oil

2 tbl Tahini

Top

4 tbl coconut oil, liquid

4 tbl cacao

4 tbl rice malt syrup (or pure maple syrup)

Crushed peanuts

Method

  1. Soak dates in water for a minimum of 4-6 hours, or alternatively soak in boiling hot water for ~30minutes.
  2. Combine base ingredients in a food processor until a crumbly base forms- do not process mixture too much or it will become too fine.
  3. Press the base into a square tray lined with baking paper (I used a 25cm x 25cm) and place in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  4. Drain the soaked dates and combine in food processor with all the other filling ingredients.
  5. Retrieve the base from the freezer and layer the filling on top of the base layer. Return to the freezer for 60 minutes, or until the middle is at least partially set.
  6. Finally combine the top layer ingredients and pour carefully on top of the previous 2 layers and sprinkle crushed peanuts on top (optional).
  7. Place in the freezer for a further 90 minutes and serve chilled.
