Hands up if Snickers were on your top 5 fav chockie bars as a kid? (my hand is riding high). This healthy remake is even better! Think chewy crumbly base, buttery caramel inner, rich choc top, and crunchy roasted peanuts. Let's go nuts.

Did you know it’s been almost 7 years since I started this blog?

SEVEN YEARS. That’s a whole small human.

Lots has changed since then. I recovered from Graves’ disease; had a baby (or two); went back to study Naturopathy, Nutrition, and Herbal Medicine (mature student/front row styles); fell in love with plant-based medicine; and trekked my little family around near 20 countries in between (guilty pleasure – foiled!).

Plant-based health has grown by leaps and bound since those days, especially here in NZ. Back then, it was just me and the foraging hippies eating black bean burgers and making cheesecakes out of cashews.

Nowadays, it’s everywhere. KFC experimenting with plant-based chicken; McDonalds launching a vegan burger; supermarkets now dedicating an entire aisle to healthy, plant-based, alternative foods; and herbal medicine having an absolute renaissance in mainstream circles.

And so have we become not so alternative after all!

Despite this evolution, one thing certainly still sits strongly in my own soul. The hope to make the world a healthier, happier place. To help/encourage/cajole you into give plant-based health a try. What you eat, what you put on your body, what you surround yourself with – both from a physical, and mental perspective – has such a remarkable effect on your ultimate health.

That doesn’t mean we can’t make it fun though! I absolutely adore the fact that there is more and more scientific research being published in support of this way of living, but keeping things light and fun is important I think too.

So what better way to fuel our fun than remake some Snickers bars together!

And before you ask – here are just 5 reasons you should give these a try before any other recipe on your to-do list:

  1. Delicious. Oh so delicious.
  2. Plant-based, whole foods goodness – no dairy, egg, or refined sugar needed.
  3. Low in overall sugars (yes, even the natural ones).
  4. Cheap! I’m more and more trying to use affordable ingredients in my recipes, so you can make them every week. That means: nuts/fancy superfoods kept to a minimum.
  5. Think chewy crumbly base, buttery caramel inner, rich chocolate top, crunchy peanuts.
