If you’re a Snicker’s bar fan, you’ll adore this homemade version. These homemade Snicker’s bars are vegan, gluten free, paleo, and grain free. You can also make them sugar free and keto if you want! If you’re not a fan of peanuts, feel free to make these with any other nut. They’re super easy to make and require just 6-7 simple ingredients!

How do I make these Snicker’s bars sugar free?

I used pure maple syrup and dark chocolate to make these Snicker’s bars, but you can use sugar free maple syrup if you want, as well as sugar free dark chocolate.

What ingredients do I need to make homemade Snicker’s bars?

You’ll need just 6-7 simple ingredients to make these bars. They are:

  • almond flour
  • salt
  • peanuts
  • maple syrup
  • dark chocolate
  • peanut butter
  • coconut oil (optional)

Can I make these Snicker’s bars peanut free?

If you’re not a fan of peanuts, you can use a different nut and nut butter combination. This would be delicious with almonds/almond butter, cashews/cashew butter, or walnuts/walnut butter.

How do I melt the chocolate?

You can melt the dark chocolate in the microwave or on the stovetop using the double boiler method. If you melt the chocolate in the microwave, it will help to add a little bit of coconut oil to the chocolate to help it melt smoothly (about 1 TBS). This isn’t necessary, but will help to thin the chocolate and help it melt smoothly.

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 TBS pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the Caramel

  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 TBS maple syrup

Other Ingredients

  • Peanuts
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 TBS coconut oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium sized bowl mix together the crust ingredients until smooth.
  2. Next, line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper and add the crust to the pan. Press the crust down until it evenly covers the bottom of the pan. I like to use parchment paper to press it down so it doesn't stick to my hands.
  3. Next, mix together the caramel ingredients. Once mixed, spread the caramel over the crust.
  4. Sprinkle peanuts on top of the caramel layer and gently press them down into the crust. Then place the loaf pan in the freezer.
  5. After several hours, remove the loaf pan from the freezer.
  6. Remove the parchment paper from the pan and slice the dessert into into 6-8 evenly sized bars.
  7. Next, melt 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (on the stovetop or in the microwave). I like to add 1 TBS coconut oil to the chocolate to help it melt more smoothly.
  8. Carefully coat each bar in melted chocolate and then place the bars on a plate or tray lined with parchment paper.
  9. Refrigerate or freeze the snickers bars until hardened. Store in the fridge or freezer.
