Raw snickers slice

Vegan no bake snickers sliceIngredients you’ll need

Medjool dates (or fresh dates)

Dates make up the base of our raw snickers slice, and they really need to be fresh, soft dates. I buy Medjool dates because that is what is available to me, but other fresh dates (like Persian dates) will work too). 

Peanut butter

Pure peanut butter made from 100% peanuts can be found at any supermarket these days, or your favourite online store. Use a creamy, runny peanut butter, or almond butter if you prefer. 

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is added to help set our peanut butter, and make our snickers bar easier to eat. If you don’t enjoy coconut oil, the taste is only very mild however you could use butter instead. 

Dark chocolate

We use a 70% dark chocolate for the perfect partner to sweet dates and soft, creamy peanut butter. Choose a good quality dark chocolate for best results, and use up to 90% dark chocolate if you love bitter chocolate. 

Roast peanuts or almonds

Whole, roasted peanuts or almonds add a beautiful crunch into our raw snickers bar, and compliment the smooth chocolate and gooey dates.

Raw snickers sliceCustomising this recipe

Can i make a smaller batch of the raw snickers slice? 

Yes! You can halve the recipe and set it in a standard loaf tin. 

Can I actually make this actually a raw vegan snickers slice?

Yes! Choose a raw nut butter, raw, activated nuts and raw chocolate for this recipe. 

What can I use instead of peanut butter?

If you don’t like peanuts, almond butter or tahini (for a nut free snickers bar) are the best choices. Increase the coconut oil to 3 Tbsp if using tahini, and pair with buckwheat grouts for a crunch.

  1. Grease and line (with baking paper) a 20cm square baking tin (like a small brownie tin). Alternatively, a silicone tray of the same size will work well.
  2. Break dates open, removing the pit and spreading the two halves open (like a date butterfly).  Lay, open side down, over the bottom of the baking tin. Once you have roughly covered the surface of the baking tin use a small cup, spoon or your fingers to press the dates and create an even date layer without any gaps. Set aside.
  3. Add peanut butter and coconut oil to a small, heavy based saucepan. Over low heat, melt until uniform. To prevent any burning stir the whole time. Once coconut oil is melted and mixed through, turn off heat and allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  4. Pour peanut butter mixture over dates, and spread to an even layer. Sprinkle nuts over the top then place in the freezer for 1 hour, or until firm.
  5. Add chocolate and the extra peanut butter or coconut oil to a heatproof bowl and melt, using the double boiler method. Alternatively, melt in a microwave-safe bowl in 15 second increments, stirring in between. Pour chocolate over the top of your slice. Use a spoon to spread evenly, then sprinkle with optional sea salt flakes.
  6. Set in the freezer for 30 minutes. Use a hot, sharp knife to cut into 16 squares.

To serve, eat straight from the freezer. This raw snickers slice is perfect straight from the freezer or fridge, and will melt on a hot day (don’t store in the pantry!). Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer (up to 3 months).


Raw snickers slice ingredient notes

  • Medjool dates are found in the fresh food section at the supermarket, and cannot be substituted for dried dates in this recipe. Other fresh dates- like Persian dates- can be used but you may need more or less than the recipe calls for.
  • Choose a peanut butter made from 99% peanuts + salt.  Peanut butter can be substituted for roasted almond butter or hulled tahini.
  1. These we SO delicious! Super easy to make. Nobody thought they were going to like them because of the dates, but as soon as I started cutting them into squares, everyone changed their minds. Fantastic & I will make them again.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Nicki!

      How funny, that was the same for my partner. Not a fan of dates, but can’t stop eating these!

  2. I tried the snickers recipe yesterday. It is delicious! The only changes I made were I left out the coconut oil because my peanut butter was runny enough, and I’m trying to watch my saturated fat intake, and I added a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil to my chocolate. Great recipe! ❤️❤️

    1. Hi Gloria,

      Thanks so much for your review, and substitutes. Olive oil is so yummy with chocolate!

      I actually put the coconut oil to help the peanut better set firmer- but glad to know it works without it too.
