Omg! I made these a while ago and I wonder why it took me so long to post it. Turns out I lost the photo in a separate album and my meddling on my ipad finally found it! I’ve always loved snickers, but sadly, they also loved me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But when I came across this awesome recipe on proteinpow.com I was ecstatic! They are so easy to make and have no added sugars or junk! 100% clean chocolate goodness, but of course you already knew that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recipe:

Bottom layer:

8 organic medjool dates (pitted)
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 a scoop of gardens life raw chocolate protein powder
2 tsp organic raw cacao powder

Mix ingredients in a food processor and spread out batter on a baking dish lined with parchment paper.
Press down to form a flat surface.

Middle layer:

1/3 cup organic raw peanut butter (I used President’s Choice)
1 scoop garden’s life raw vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup raw macadamia nuts (alternatively you can use raw peanuts)
1 stevia sachet
1/4 cup water

Mix ingredients in a bowl with a wooden spoon and spread on top of bottom layer.

Top layer

8-12 squares 85% organic dark chocolate or dairy free chocolate (I used President’s Choice organic extra dark chocolate)

Melt chocolate over low heat in a saucepan and spread evenly on top of the middle layer.
Place mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Cut into squares when ready and enjoy. They are slightly messy so be cautious while cutting them. It’s slightly annoying when it gets everywhere but so delicious so it is worth it ๐Ÿ™‚
