Clean treat: Raw vegan snickers bar

In the mood for something sweet yet salty?
Here is the perfect thing: Raw vegan and – most important – CLEAN snickers bars.

OMG… They are seriously to die for.

Crust
Approximately…
2 DL raw nuts (I used 1 DL almonds, 0,5 DL walnuts and 0,5 brazil nuts
(but you can use walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, macadamia nuts and so on…)
1,5 DL pitted dates (soaked for about 20 minutes)
0,5 DL desiccated coconut (optional)

Put nuts in food processor and pulse for about 15 seconds. Add the dates and the shredded coconut and whirl until combined. Spoon into a form lined with parchment paper and spread evenly. Set aside in fridge (or freezer).

Caramel layer
Approximately…
1,5 DL pitted dates (soaked for about 20 minutes)
About 1-2 DL tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 DL chopped up nuts (optional – good if you want the crunchy Snickers feel. I did almonds and peanuts).
About 1/2 DL water
Pinch of Himalayan salt

Blend in food processor, adding water slowly – as much as you think you need. (Don´t make it too runny!) Pulse until smooth. Pour the caramel over the crust and place in freezer while you make the chocolate layer.

1/2-2/3 deciliter coconut oil
2/3 deciliter cacao powder (raw or not – you decide)
4 tablespoons sweetener (or to taste). Like for example Agave, raw honey or why not Yacon syrup (- which is not going to effect your blood sugar as much as other sweeteners).
Pinch of Himilayian salt (or two!)
1/2 DL water (or less), added slowly
Peanuts – natural or salted (I just sprinkled some Himalayan salt on top of them – yum!) – optinal!

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add water slowly and don’t use too much – then it will become very sticky and not set in the freezer).
Spread everything on top of the caramel layer and put in freezer for an hour or two until set. And oh yeah, sprinkle some peanuts on top of everything if you want to.
Cut into small bite-sized pieces – either before it has set (and separate the pieces a little bit) to make the chocolate run down the sides of the bar OR after it has set. In the pics you see both examples displayed.

Enjoy!
