This 5 ingredient mega easy raw snickers slice is incredibly delicious. Chocolate, peanuts and caramel– is there a better combination? Made with NO gluten, NO dairy and NO refined sugar, and NO special equipment. 





  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.
