Snickers Bar Overnight Oats

by Jill Dalton

One of my favorite treats before I went plant based was a Snickers bar. I always knew they were total junk food but I was hooked and had to have one every day with my lunch when I worked in the construction field. I haven’t had one in years and had the hankering one afternoon a few months back so I decided to create a healthy alternative. This recipe is a rich and delicious, packed with nutrition, has that sweet chocolate and roasted peanut flavor, and actually satisfies.

I’ve got date paste that I’ve made…how much would equal the 5 dates? I’d rather add the paste to the milk than the dates…it’ll save me from having to clean my blender! 😜

My guess would be 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons.

After watching your video on the snickers bar oats, I felt compel to share a recipe that I think you and your viewers would absolutely go crazy over. I called them RAW SNICKERS BITES since 50 to 75% of ingredients are uncooked. Best part only use 4 ingredients. I came up with these about 8 years ago so obviously I have no plans of publishing it so feel free to use it however you like. For me, these taste BETTER than snicker bars but definitely reminds me of them. Without further ado.
2 medjool dates
1 walnut halve
3 tsp of smooth or crunchy peanut butter (Trader Joe’s no salt)
10 semi sweet vegan choc chip pieces (less than 20 calories) or make your own chocolate spread using date paste and cacao)

Now for the simple 1 to 2 minute assembly

-Remove pits from dates
-Spread tsp of peanut butter inside half of each date
-Split walnut half in 2 and layer each date with a half of a half walnut
-Close dates by squeezing sides together
-Spread a little more peanut butter (about 1/2 tsp) on top of closed date
-Press 5 vegan chocolate chip pieces into the top layer of peanut butter (ensure choc chip pieces still visible from top)
-Place in freeze until hard (at least 3 hours)

Notes: Freezer is key. This gives it the texture of biting into a bar. Also, Choc chips and walnut adds the nutty crunchy chocolate texture similar to snickers but so much better. I promise you that this is darn good and SIMPLE. I literally make 2 pcs in less than a minute. It’s my standard after dinner dessert. Hope you try it. -Alyse Watts.

Thank you Alyse! This sounds like a delicious treat. I usually have a date with peanut butter globbed inside every afternoon but this sounds so much more magical. I will have to try them out.=)

The only thing I would do differently is wait until I was ready to eat the oatmeal, then grind my flaxseed, since it is most viable right after grinding.

Is this considered to be one serving?

In any and all of our dressings you can use seeds or rolled oats instead of the nuts. Here is a playlist of all of our dressings. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5RgLqOONVSuvwBzu15P6O0Mo_zVDhL93

This is SO good! I’ve made it as per the instructions and also with maple syrup drizzled on top instead of with dates (I was out), and both are phenomenal! This is a favorite recipe for sure!!
