The classic combination of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate that comes from a snickers bar gets turned into a crunchy sweet granola. This Snickers Granola is healthy, requires just 8 plant based ingredients and takes just 30 minutes to make!
YUP, you read that right. Today I’m sharing with you an exquisite granola recipe: SNICKERS GRANOLA! Who doesn’t love caramel-y, peanut butter-y chocolate goodness? We all know eating a snickers bar is a treat, but what if it’s made from healthy ingredients, something you could have everyday and still feel amazing? I’m here to tell you, now you can.
If we look at whats in a snickers bar, the ingredients list isn’t that great. This Snickers Granola was inspired by the flavours coming from the classic snickers bar which is: caramel, peanuts and chocolate. Oh but we can’t forget about the nougat, which to me just tastes like sugar. So what goes into this granola?
- peanut butter & peanuts
- maple syrup
- coconut butter
- puffed quinoa
- mini chocolate chips
- and a bit of vanilla & salt
You may be wondering how we’re going to tackle the different components in a granola recipe so we can taste each element of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate. Well, basically we’re going to be making two different granolas and mixing it together! That way we get the distinct flavours of peanut butter and caramel. Then lastly, adding in the chocolate chips, because it wouldn’t be a snickers bar without any chocolate.
So we have the caramel component coming from the caramel granola. The peanut component coming from the peanut butter granola. The nougat component coming from the sweetness of both granolas and the added oats for a “chew”.
(NOTE: I did try to add dates to this granola, however found it way too sweet but do as you please). And of course the chocolate component is covered from the mini chocolate chips we added in. BAM we have a delicious (highly addicting) Snickers Granola!
I hope you enjoy this Snickers Granola as much as I do! If you’re on the fence of trying them, here’s why I think you’ll love this granola! It’s:
- basically eating a healthy deconstructed snickers bar
- fully vegan
- gluten and oil free
- and just really damn tasty (seriously!!)
I rarely ever eat granola with milk but this Snickers Granola is SO good with some soy milk!
