you read the title correctly, i made Vegan Snickers Inspired Granola Bark and it’s one of those things you just cannot pass up on, no matter what. if you’re looking for something that tastes out of this world, like better than candy but made with real ingredients, make this!
upbeetandkaleingit’s new favorite recipe is Vegan Snickers Inspired Granola Bark. the bottom layer is peanut butter granola.
the middle layer is date caramel and the top layer is a chocolate shell.
it’s perfectly delicious, crafted with love and a little bit messy but completely worth the sticky date fingers.
the granola layer is baked of course and it’s really simple! you just need gluten free old fashioned oats, runny peanut butter, avocado oil or melted coconut oil and maple syrup.
then, the date caramel is just large medjool dates, dairy free milk, vanilla extract and coconut oil or avocado oil.
it gets blended in a food processor until a thick caramel forms. once the granola completely cools down, the caramel is added.
then, Vegan Snickers Inspired Granola Bark is placed in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to firm up a bit.
next, the chocolate shell is poured on top, placed back in the freezer for an hour and then it’s time to break the granola bark apart!
this is where is will get a little messy because the date caramel isn’t completely firm but it’s not supposed to be!
personally, i don’t mind slightly sticky fingers if it’s means i get to eat one of the most delicious things on planet earth. that’s not an exaggeration by the way, wait until you try it!
while i recommend eating this the same day you make it, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days. just note, the granola might get a little soggy due to the caramel if you store in the fridge.
i would make this for a get together if possible so it gets eaten the same day, but you can always see how long it lasts in an airtight container. i would not store it more than a couple of days though.
here’s everything you need to make Vegan Snickers Inspired Granola Bark
