Paleo Snickers (Christmas) Dessert

Paleo Snickers a.k.a. Reeses (Christmas) Dessert

A dessert inspired on the good old Snickers (a.k.a. Reeses) bar. I paleo-fied the recipe by using avocado’s, 100% cocoa, hazelnuts, coconut oil, honey and a pinch of mineral rich sea salt.

At the time writing, it’s still 4 days until Christmas and I just ate the Christmas dessert (at 3 o’clock p.m.) that I’ll be having again at Christmas. That’s for making sure you guys have a healthy option for dessert to choose from next week! 🙂

About the recipe
Paleo-fying the recipe means that I have only used ingredients that are real foods, the way the can be found in nature. That way, this Snickers dessert contains no artificial ingredients and is full of minerals and vitamins.

  • 1st layer

The dessert consists of three layers, just like the original Snickers bar: the 1st layer is made from hazelnut meal, which I find tastes the best with chocolate. Almond meal is a good second option, or make your own hazelnut/almond meal with a food processor.

The 1st layer furthermore consists of some organic coconut oil, honey and salt. I always use organic Cletic sea salt because it contains lots of minerals. Organic Himalayan sea salt is a good 2nd option; make sure you choose fine (sea) salt above all!

  • 2nd layer

The 2nd layer consists of honey, coconut oil and a pinch of salt, which mimics the caramel layer. I added a few whole hazelnuts to this layer as well.

  • 3rd layer

The 3rd (top) layer consists of Hass avocado, 100% cocoa and a little bit of honey.

Paleo Snickers (Christmas) Dessert consists of three layers: a nut base, a caramel layer and and a chocolate layer.

Use small glasses to serve
At the picture above I served the dessert in small glasses, about coffee cup size. That’s because the dessert is quite heavy, so you either save room for this dessert or use small dessert glasses like I did.

On to the recipe (it’s printable) … enjoy!
