Healthy Snickers Balls!!


So this healthy snickers balls recipe all began because I saw a chocolate bar advertisment on the television and because I suppose thats the job of the add, I started to seriously crave snicker’s chocolate bars!! Tell me I’m not the only one?

I am a big believer in not depriving yourself of foods you love. Rather switch them to healthy alternatives and enjoy mindfully in moderation.

So I have created for you (and me) a healthy gluten free, vegan, dairy free and refined sugar free snickers balls recipe. It was going to be a bar however I am also all for quick and simple recipes that are achievable for anyones lifestyle……. and well a bar added at least an extra 20 minutes on preparation time.

Now before we get to the recipe, I can honestly say this is one of my BEST treat recipes in years!! The few people who did try one of my trial batches were amazed that number 1 they were actually healthy and number 2 how much they really tasted like the real thing, yet even more indulgent!

Give this healthy snickers balls recipe a go and let me know what you think?

 

Healthy Snickers Balls Recipe!

Makes around 12 Balls:

1 cup raw cashews

1 cup mixed raw seeds (I used pepita & sunflower seeds)

2 tbs coconut oil

1 cup dates, pitted and pre soaked

1 tsp vanilla extract or paste

1 tbs cocao powder

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup crunchy natural peanut butter (I used Pics Peanut Butter)

2 tbs maple syrup

Himalayan salt to taste

 

  1. In a fry pan on a medium to high heat, melt 1 tbs of the coconut oil. Then lightly roast the cashews and seeds in the coconut oil. Turing over regularly. Take out of the fry pan and allow to cool.
  2. Combine in a food processor or high speed blender the dates, vanilla, cocao powder and desiccated coconut to create the base.
  3. In the same fry pan combine the remaining coconut oil, peanut butter, maple syrup and salt to create a peanut buttery caramel like sauce.
  4. Stir through the base the roasted nuts/ seeds and the sauce.
  5. Roll into generous sized balls and set in the fridge.

Enjoy!
