Homemade Healthy Snickers Bars

Why buy store bought candy or chocolate bars when you can make a healthier, homemade version with a handful of ingredients?

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of snickers. I wouldn’t necessarily say its the actual candy bar itself, but rather the combination of tastes, textures, and flavors.

Sweet and Salty

Ooey and Gooey

Chocolate and Peanut Butter (or almond butter/sunflower seed butter!)

Caramel and Chocolate

You get my point.

I’ve given the snickers treatment to various recipes- Made into a healthy low carb milkshake, a bowl of overnight oatmeal and even a protein bar. It was time to give it the raw, un-baked makeover! 

These homemade 5-ingredient Snickers bars come in two ways. I tried it out twice because they are so good, I really want to cover all the bases so that no one misses out!

DO SNICKERS HAVE GLUTEN IN THEM?

Traditional Snickers Bars are NOT gluten-free.

My homemade 5 Ingredient raw snickers bars ARE gluten-free, paleo and vegan. Not only that, I’ve included a tested version which is keto friendly, low carb and sugar free. It means those following a ketogenic diet can easily enjoy these no bake bars too. 

WHAT IS THE NOUGAT IN A SNICKERS BAR MADE OF? 

Have a look at the ingredients for it…it’s NOT the pillar of health.

Instead of making a nougat, I opted for both versions to omit it. The base layer is quite fudgy itself, and the added homemade gooey caramel tastes so good, you won’t even miss it!

PALEO VEGAN HOMEMADE CARAMEL

Caramel can often be intimidating, but we are going the healthy route today! Caramel made with no condensed milk, no dairy, and no refined sugar! There are two methods-

Two ingredients caramel- Smooth nut or seed butter and pure maple syrup, agave nectar or pure manuka honey

Three ingredient caramel- The same ingredients as above, but with the addition of coconut oil. I personally adore this version, as it is extra smooth and silky. 

KETO FRIENDLY LOW CARB CARAMEL 

Like this recipe, I used a specific sugar free and keto friendly caramel sauce. Please note that if you choose this version of caramel, it contains dairy. 

THE CHOCOLATE LAYER

Homemade Chocolate- To make your own chocolate layer, combine half a cup of coconut oil, half a cup of cocoa powder and a 1/4 cup of a sticky sweetener of choice (maple, agave, honey etc).

Ingredients

For the Paleo Vegan Raw version

For the Keto and Sugar Free version

Instructions

For the paleo vegan snickers bars

  • Combine your dates and salted nuts into a high-speed blender or food processor. Pulse until a thick batter remains. 
  • Transfer batter to a lined 8 x 8-inch or bigger loaf pan and press firmly in place. Refrigerate.
  • Using a microwave or stovetop, prepare your caramel by melting your nut/seed butter with maple syrup and coconut oil until a silky texture remains. Pour the caramel over the snickers base and refrigerate or freeze until firm. 
  • Once firm, melt your chocolate chips and pour over the top. Refrigerate or freeze until firm. Once firm, cut into bars and enjoy!

For the keto and low carb snickers bars

  • Add your coconut flour to a mixing bowl and set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your almond butter with your sticky sweetener and melt until combined. Add to the coconut flour and mix until a thick batter remains. If it is too crumbly, add some extra liquid (water, non-dairy milk).
  • Transfer your batter into a lined 8x8-inch baking dish and press firmly in place. Refrigerate. 
  • Prepare your keto and low carb caramel sauce and pour into the baking dish. Refrigerate or freeze until firm. Once firm, melt your chocolate chips and pour over the top. Refrigerate.
  • Once the snickers bars have chilled, cut into bars and enjoy! 

Notes

* Depending on the brand of coconut flour, you may need less or more. Adjust accordingly. 
Healthy Paleo Vegan Snickers Bars can be kept at room temperature, but are best refrigerated and also freezer friendly.

  1. What would you suggest for keto version for sticky sweetener of choice? I guess I don’t understand what sticky sweetener would be. New to keto so learning about different ingredients. Thanks! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  2. These look amazing, can’t wait to make them! Just an fyi though, snickers are gluten free. I’m celiac and I’ve eaten them for years prior to going keto.

  3. Hey Arman! Hopefully you see this, i want to make these for a baby shower coming up. Was wondering do these keep their texture during room texture, does it get too soft with no refrigeration? Also, if the coconut oil is opt out will that drastically change the texture? Excited about these!! Looks amazing

    1. Hi there! you can omit the coconut oil, it really won’t differ to much, just be thicker 🙂 If you cover them completely in chocolate, they will be fine at room temperature 🙂
