"Snickers"

It seems unreal to me now, but when I was little, I never liked peanuts, peanut butter and therefore not even ‘Snickers’ bars. If Isabel hadn’t come up with the idea of making some (she has always liked Snickers) I probably still wouldn't like Snickers. But here it is! And what can I say now?! I really, really like our homemade 'Snickers’ and that is not only because I have come to love peanut butter (weirdly enough, still not peanuts) but because the mixture of a soft and slightly crumbly oat, peanut base covered in dark chocolate is just too good! I have to admit, they are delicious, so make some and I hope you will love them as much as we do!



Snicker Ingredients

  • Peanuts - For the base, we made our own peanut flour by simply grinding peanuts in a food processor. By using peanut flour in combination with oat flour, these "Snickers" taste extremely light and soft.

  • Dark Chocolate - Dark chocolate or any other vegan type would fit.

  • Oat Flour - Oat flour gives the base an extra softness and crunch.


Snicker Tips

  • Don’t skimp on the peanut butter - Although the filling is easy, you have to put a lot of peanut butter in it!

  • Use Dark Chocolate - Since we really like dark chocolate we obviously coated our snickers with very dark chocolate but if you prefer a different option, go for it!

  • Time - Preparing this recipe may seem long, but actually this recipe doesn't take much on-hand time, just waiting/cooling time.



Ingredients

Easy - 9 'Snickers' - 1 hour 

Base

  • ½ cup Oat Flour

  • ½ cup Peanut Flour

  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup

  • 3 tbsp Water

Filling

  • ca. ¼ cup Peanut Butter

  • additional peanuts

Cover

  • ½ cup Dark Chocolate



Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the base. Divide the dough into about 9 equal pieces and start shaping each piece into a rectangle about 1 cm thick. Place the rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  2. Next, generously spread the filling, aka peanut butter, onto each rectangle.

  3. Sprinkle some peanuts on top of the peanut butter layer and gently press them into the filling. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Remove the baking sheet from the freezer and cover each rectangle with chocolate. Place the chocolate covered rectangles in the fridge for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

  5. Enjoy your fake - vegan ‘Snickers’!!! 😙
