Halloween is creeping up on us! Day by day, I’ve been checking off my list of everything I want to do leading up to Halloween. I watched Hocus Pocus, went to see the Halloween villains parade at Disneyland with my fiance, and bought a ridiculous amount of pumpkin everything (mini pumpkins, pumpkin napkins, pumpkin trick-or-treat buckets, pumpkin lantern).
Now, I’ve got Halloween candy on my mind, so I rounded up this list of 6 chocolatey vegan Halloween candy recipes for you to sink your teeth into! If you’re a candy lover like me, then you’ll definitely enjoy making these healthier Halloween candy recipes over the next week. Continue Reading
I know it’s summer, a time when everyone seems to be trying their best to stay healthy and step up their workout game. But my philosophy revolves around the idea of listening to your body and eating what it craves. You can eat healthy AND exercise regularly AND enjoy the foods you love. Why does it have to be one or the other? Especially when it comes to me and my incessant sweet tooth, sometimes this means treating myself to a candy bar or two. I really don’t see the point in limiting yourself, because trust me I’ve been down that road and it never ends well. Instead, I like to make my own healthier raw, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free versions of candy, like my raw snickers bars. That way I can always have a little when the craving hits and I’m happy knowing it’s made from real, whole ingredients that leave me feeling fully satisfied.
What could be better than a Snickers bar? Try a healthy Snickers bar made with only raw, vegan ingredients and no added sugar. I was craving a candy bar and Snickers is an all-time favorite of mine. The best part is this one has all-natural wholesome ingredients so your cravings will be satisfied for longer!
On the bottom, there’s a coconutty cashew base layered with a soft peanut butter date caramel. Then on top, I sprinkled on some raw peanuts and drizzled the bars with raw chocolate. Viola, the raw Snickers was born!
Instead of adding any fillers or processed sugars like in a normal Snickers bar, I made these healthier by using raw, sugar-free ingredients. The result is just as indulgent, rich, and fulfilling as the original!
I couldn’t believe how well these turned out! OMG you have to make them. I promise you will not be able to keep your hands off of them. Spoil yourself, don’t hold back, dig into some delicious candy bars right now.
In high school, I used to eat candy A LOT. For student government, we’d literally carry around bags of candy bars all day long and sell them to our fellow students and teachers. The temptation was real. I’d dig my hand into my stash daily. So long story short, I wanted to rekindle my love for Snickers all over again.
These Snickers bars are so chewy and gooey and delicious all at the same time. Words cannot begin to describe how excited I was while devouring them. Treat yourself to these as a special weekend treat because you deserve it!
