These vegan snickers bars have some serious wow factor! My only regret about this recipe is that I did not make it sooner. Snickers Bars were a favorite growing up, and I will admit that I missed them a little when I went vegan. Thankfully  I don’t have to worry about that anymore — now that I know how simple these are to make.

This recipe also only requires 20 minutes or less of work on your end, and if you use Enjoy Life chocolate chips as I did then it will be a whole lot easier. Although I have a great chocolate sauce recipe that tastes just as good as the chocolate chips. 

From the start, I knew how I wanted to make the caramel. I really wanted to use one of my favorite date caramel recipes as it’s so simple and has a gooey texture similar to that in a snickers bars. All you need is to mix 3-ingredients in a bender! And the thought of this caramel with some salty peanuts was just super appealing.

Traditional Snickers Bars are NOT gluten-free. However, these raw vegan snickers bars ARE gluten-free. 

Have a look at the ingredients for it…it’s NOT the pillar of health. But these will blow you away with how good they taste, never would you have thought that these could be made with such wholesome ingredients.
