Raw Snickers Slice

Recently I made this for some friends on a whim without a recipe just in the kitchen freestyling, this is where I zen out. I was so surprised when a message buzzed through, “Nat I NEED this recipe, it’s amaze!” so then the challenge was on to recreate it and actually record what went down. Tough job I know. Lots of taste tasting haha! So here it is and I hope you love it as much as we do._MG_6982 (3)This slice is a little more prep than what I usually make as it has the three layers. It is worth it and each layer is honestly really simple to assemble, it just has steps but if you see it through you will be well rewarded.

This recipe is free from gluten, refined sugar, dairy, eggs and suitable for GAPS protocols if you can tolerate cacao, it also has a very easy vegan option.

This recipe makes 20 very generous squares.

INGREDIENTS

BASE
1 1/2 cups dessicated coconut

METHOD

Start with you base first. Add all of your base ingredients to your food processor or thermomix and blitz until combined. I like some texture in the base, don’t blitz it until it’s a paste. I used my thermomix at speed 6 for 20 seconds.

Line a 20 x 20cm slice dish with non stick paper (I love the If You Care brand, it’s sustainable, non toxic and the best non stick I’ve found). Push your base mixture evenly into the tray, if you use slightly wet hands it helps it to not stick. Place in the freezer while you make your middle.

Place all of your middle ingredients EXCEPT the whole peanuts into your cleaned food processor or thermomix. Blend to combine. I used my thermomix at speed 5.5 for 15 seconds, scraped down the sides, then speed 5 for 5 seconds.

Add your whole peanuts and combine to the consistency you prefer – be careful at this part! You don’t want to blend the peanuts to smithereens. I used my thermomix at speed 5.5 for just 4 seconds- go the chunk!

Now smooth this mixture evenly on top of your base and then place back into the freezer while you do the last part, the top. You’re nearly there!

If using a thermomix add your top ingredients and combine at speed 1, at 45C for 1.45 minutes. Scrape down the sides then blend at speed 3.5 for 10 seconds.

For non thermomix add your ingredients to a small pan over the most gentle heat. As soon as it just starts to melt STOP, turn off the heat and allow it to just gently melt. Food is considered raw at 45C or less and it really doesn’t take a lot to melt these ingredients together.

Now simply pour the top over your other two layers and return to the freezer for an hour before cutting into squares. _MG_6992 (2)Store this and serve this from the freezer. This will keep for ages if you don’t eat it all quickly (not in this house).

Enjoy and if this one’s a hit in your house please send through your pics, I love seeing what you get up to in the kitchen.

Much love,
