Vegan Snickers bar recipe

I have had this sweet, healthy snack before at a couple of healthy cafes and I was surprised, mostly on how similar it was to the actual thing. What was even more surprising to me was that making this delicious bar I discovered how to make vegan, sugar-free caramel. Indeed! It is now obvious that I have a thing with presentation, most of my food tastes great but looks awful, In this case they taste A M A Z I N G and look below average.

Ingredients from Alpha Mega

For the Nougat:

  • 2/3 cup rolled oats processed into flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

For the Caramel:

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Peanuts:

  • 2/3 cup Roasted Salted Peanuts

For the Chocolate:

  • 300g vegan chocolate (I used Ombar from Alpha Mega but Green&Blacks would do)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the rolled oats into a food processor and process until mostly powdery. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup and sea salt and process together into a paste.
  2. Pour out into a parchment lined loaf pan and smooth down. Place into the freezer to set (10-15 minutes will do).
  3. Melt the coconut butter and then pour into a bowl and mix in the maple syrup and vanilla and stir to combine. It’s magically turned into caramel!
  4. Pour this out on top of the set nougat layer and smooth down. Then add the peanuts and gently press down with a spoon to press them into the caramel. Place into the freezer to set.
  5. When set, lift it all out with the parchment paper and cut into even bars.
  6. Melt the chocolate by breaking it into pieces and placing into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, bringing it out to stir every 30 seconds until completely melted. Stir in the coconut oil to thin the chocolate slightly.
  7. Dunk each bar into the chocolate, flipping over to coat both sides and then placing on a parchment lined baking tray. Repeat for all the bars. My chocolate was too thick and I had to place it as a layer on top of the bars. Place into the freezer to set.
  8. Keep the bars stored in the fridge or freezer.
