I'm sure you know by now that I only use clean ingredients on my blog, so you never have to worry that any of my recipes will contain things like dairy/gluten/refined sugars, etc… the aim of my blog/Instagram/Facebook page; is to provide clean recipes made with good wholesome foods to help you still enjoy the finer, yummy desserts, treats, meals whilst not doing any harm to your adrenals, digestion, heart health, liver, cholesterol, metabolism, skin and helping you maximize your body as a whole and better your day to day performance in a natural way with natural ingredients because that's what I believe in. I'm paleo (the paleo diet zooms in on how we use to eat way back in the day before everything got super complex and refined). I've done the research behind it and it's what I've chosen to promote because it's what I believe is a damn fine way to live life 😜 also if you're not paleo based these are pretty cool to try regardless. (I'm going to write a longer blog post on my experience being paleo/plant based soon soon x)

NO BAKE, RAW VEGAN SNICKER BARS

I've tried to make these before but they failed so terribly (it was like mush)… after making a few protein bars and learning how certain ingredients work together and trying a million different things- here they are. I love them! I think if there was one sweet recipe of mine you were going to try- this would probably be it. Also apparently the sticky toffee pudding from last weeks post is a #winner so I don't know. Try both and let me know which one you prefer x

Raw means you don't have to use an oven (bake it)

Ingredients

  • 2 small peeled, boiled sweet potatoes
  • Cacao powder
  • Flax meal
  • Plant based Protein powder (optional)
  • Coconut oil
  • Smooth Peanut butter (with no added sugar or salt)
  • Maple syrup
  • Almonds
  • Sea salt

Creation station
(#soznotsoz about that ridiculous heading)

The base

  • Once the sweet potatoes are boiled, place them in a dish towel and try squeeze out as much water as you can and then mash them in a bowl.
  • Mix in 1/2 a cup of coconut oil
  • Mix in 1 serving of plant based vanilla protein powder (for me that was 4 tbsp)
  • Add 2 tbsp of cacao
  • In a separate bowl mix 1/4 cup of water with 2tbsp of flax meal
  • Then add the flax to the other bowl with the rest of the ingredients.

It should be quite firm and fudgy

  • Place in a bread loaf tin and store in the fridge (not freezer)


This is what it should look like, if it's too thick add more coconut oil, if it's too runny add a tiny bit of flax. If you don't want to use protein then just use 1/4 cup of coconut oil instead of 1/2 a cup. Flax measurements stay the same.

Peanut/caramel sauce

  • Mix 1/2 cup of peanut butter with 1/2 cup of maple syrup (mix and mix till it looks like caramel)
  • Layer over the bottom layer

I crushed some almonds and cracked some sea salt over the caramel layer


choc

  • 2tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Mix and pour over the caramel layer. Leave in fridge to set for a while then remove from pan and cut into bars. I didn't add sweetener to the bottom layer because the caramel layer turns out to be really sweet and my protein powder was sweetened with stevia plus the sweet potato adds some natural sugars too

And there you have it… sneaky, snacky snickers bar… ready…steady… INDULGE
