Snickers Bar Pit Stop


Hello from the road! As you may or may not know, I am traveling as part of the Vaxxed tour- hearing stories, spreading truth and fighting for medical freedom (shout out to my siblings crew!!!)

After days on the go, with little time to eat full meals and minimal sleep, we are very grateful to have a short rest at the Layton's house. There is nothing more comforting than a cosy house and a family vibe. What do I choose to do in my four hours off? Bake treats of course. Taking into account all the great suggestions from the team, Patrick won with his choice of a Paleo Snickers bar.

When I think of Snickers bars, I think of my childhood. I used to swim competitively and I always used to sneak a Snickers bar after an evening of training as a treat. But with corn syrup, truckloads of sugar and partially hydrogenated soybean oil, it's not as appealing as it used to be. The good news is that you can make a grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free and even more delicious version at home.


These are so good there are no words. Treat yourself to a "nearly-weekend" yummy, you deserve it!

Junk-Free Snicker's Bars (Grain-free, GF, DF, Refined Sugar-Free)

Ingredients:

Crust:
1 cup creamy almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 Tablespoons coconut flour

Filling:
20 Medjool dates
1/2 cup water
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup pecan pieces

Topping:
2 cups dark chocolate chunks (Enjoy Life brand if possible!) 
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Method:
1) In a large mixing bowl, combine your almond butter, coconut flour, and maple syrup and mix well. 
2) Press the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Create a thin, and even layer then place in the freezer.
3) Prepare your caramel filling by blending dates, salt, coconut oil and water in a food processor. Mix until smooth and creamy. 
4) Remove crust from the freezer and spread your "caramel" over the bottom layer. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes.
5) For the chocolate topping, melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil in a large bowl over heat. 
6) Remove the bars from the freezer and coat the chocolate generously over the top. 
7) Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes, cut and serve!
