Healthy Pistachio Snickers Bar – Raw, Vegan and Gluten Free

Pistachio Snickers


Calling all lovers of all things chocolate! You are going to love these!
When I was little we always got to choose our own chocolate bars from the shop as a treat. Snickers were always my favourite! The dense nutty caramel centre! After you eat one of them you rarely want more as they are intensely sweet.
I have to say I don’t really eat them anymore but they hold a treasured place in my heart. And these as a remake they aren’t a perfect replica but more of a respectful nod to the
beautiful layers.
I went for oat nut butter base, caramel, pistachio, and chocolate topping.
Really pretty simple but it hits the super crazy yell at your husband sugar craving charts. Or should I say prevents you from having wild yelling at your husband sugar cravings. I should call them ‘keeping you steady pistachio snickers’.

    Do these remain in the freezer or the refrigerator. Also how long will they keep fresh?

    Hey sorry I have just seen your question. These would last for ages in the freezer you may want to thaw them before eating though. You can also keep them in the fridge and would probably last a week if you don’t eat them straight away.
