Get ready to do the happy food dance, because these little Snickers Bites are coming at you! TikTok user PlantChics shared this incredibly simple, plant-based recipe, and you only need three ingredients: a pitted date, a smear of all-natural peanut butter, and a sprinkling of vegan chocolate chips. The date offers that chewy consistency and caramel flavour you love, the peanut butter adds that peanut flavour and soft creaminess similar to the nougat, and the chocolate chips add that cool sweetness and hard texture you get from biting into a Snickers. Plus, they take two minutes to make!
Although the Snickers slogan says they're supposed to satisfy your hunger, these nut butter date bites will do a better job since they offer complex carbs, fibre, and protein from whole foods. They're also lower in refined sugar and less processed. I'd much rather eat one of these!
Enjoy Life is one of my favourite brands of chocolate chips, but if you want a cheaper option, Trader Joe's Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips are also vegan. You can mix up the flavour combination by using a different nut butter, like almond or cashew, and trying different toppings like granola, sliced almonds, chopped pecans, raisins, or finely diced strawberries. A sprinkling of cinnamon or cocoa powder would take this to the next level of deliciousness!
If you're a big fan of dates, try this dark chocolate salted caramel recipe. It's vegan and only requires four ingredients.
