I have been wanting to make these yummy guilt free bars for a while now. Saint Nicholas stopped by the other night and dropped off some chocolate so it was time to make some healthified snickers!
•1/2 cup peanut butter
•2Tbsp VitaFiber (can use agave, honey, maple/rice syrup)
•3Tbsp Oat flour
•Pinch cinnamon & ginger (optional)
•1 cup dates, soaked
•1/3 cup water
•1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
•Pinch pink Himalayan salt
•1/4 cup peanuts
•1 cup dark chocolate, chopped
•2 tsp coconut oil
Combine all nougat ingredients together with a fork until well combined. Press dough on parchment lined baking sheet and press into a rectangular shape about 1/2″ thick, place in freezer for 30min.
Prepare caramel filling in food processor, pulsing until you get a creamy caramel texture. Spread caramel over cooled nougat layer.
Press 1/4 peanuts into caramel.
Place in freezer for 1-2 hours or overnight like I did. Slice into 12 snack size bars or 6 regular size bars. Prepare chocolate over double boiler. Coat bars with chocolate and place on rack or parchment lined dish, this can get tricky and you will get messy but worth it!
Place back in freezer to harden shell. Store in fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
