This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

Ideal at any time of year but especially for Easter, these no-bake Snickers Bar treats are a healthier alternative to the traditional classic. With a ‘shortbread’ base, a thick date caramel and chocolate topping and crunchy peanuts, you can’t go wrong with this combination!

  • For The Base
  • 75g oat flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • For the Date Caramel
  • 150g dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes

  • Dash of vanilla
  • For The Topping
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Prep Time


  1. First make the base: Mix together the ingredients to form a dough. Press into a lined tupperware box or small tin. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile make the caramel: Simply drain the dates and place into your Ninja Kitchen Auto IQ with the other ingredients and blend to form a slightly chunky paste. Scrape out and spread over the base to cover and form a thick layer. Place in the freezer.

  3. Now melt the coconut oil and maple syrup then whisk in the cacao/cocoa powder until smooth. Pour this over the date layer to cover, sprinkle over the peanuts then return to the freezer for at least 4 hours to set.

  4. When ready to serve, remove from the freezer and place on a chopping board. Use a large sharp knife to cut into chunks – then serve!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
