Raw Snickers Slice

You're not you when you're Hungry... Which is why I made a raw snickers slice (inspired by a raw dessert recipe book), rather than reaching for the original one that won't serve my body.

I actually made this for my husband's birthday and trust me when I say 'it was a winner all round!' 

Can I give you a tip?? DOUBLE THE RECIPE...you will want left overs to put in the freezer :)

Method:

First line a large baking tray or dish approximately 20cm square unless doubling recipe then I suggest a 33x25cm tray

Base:

  • 2 pitted medjool dates (or approx. 5 pitted dates soaked)
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbs pure maple syrup

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until combined and press firmly into prepared baking tray. Place in fridge or freezer.

 

Peanut butter nougat filling:

  • 1 can organic chick peas, rinsed & drained
  • 1/3 cup pure peanut butter (no added anything)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or 2 drops vanilla EO
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Blend all ingredients until smooth in food processor. Note: this will be quite thick but that's what you're after :) Then spread over base and put back in fridge or freezer to chill.

 

Caramelised nuts:

  • 1 1/2 cups of nuts of your choice (I used raw cashews - note: you can roast the nuts first for extra flavour too)
  • 50gm grass fed butter
  • 3 tbs tahini
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Place ingredients in a saucepan over low heat & stir until melted & sticky. Spread over nougat layer then place back in fridge or freezer to chill.

 

Chocolate topping:

You have 2 options here; make your own chocolate (which is what I like) or simply melt down 200gm dark chocolate (I prefer lindt 90%) with 2 tbs coconut oil or butter.

For the homemade chocolate option simple follow this recipe;

  • 1/2 cup cacao butter melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup cacao
  • dash of pink salt 
  • 1 tsp vanilla or 1 drop vanilla EO

Mix ingredients together and pour over caramelised nuts. Place back in fridge or freezer until chocolate is set & ready to serve. 

Enjoy :)
