Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means – CANDY!
It's hard to avoid, but if you want to indulge in the Halloween spirit without the guilt we have the perfect recipe for you: HEALTHY High Protein Snicker's Candy Bar!
Why settle for store-bought when you can make your own?
Let's face it, store-bought candy bars are loaded with sugar, artificial flavors, but making your own healthy candy bars is easier than you think!
The little mini Snicker bars were always my favorite so I thought it would be fun to recreate a better for you version so you can enjoy them without the guilt (or insane amounts of sugar!)
Step 1: Choose your base
Every great candy bar starts with a solid foundation. Instead of reaching for processed chocolate, opt for dark chocolate with a high cocoa content.
Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants and has less sugar than its milky counterpart. It's a win-win!
Step 2: Get nutty
Now it's time to add some crunch and protein to your candy bars. Choose your favorite nuts – almonds, peanuts, or cashews.
Step 3: Sweeten the deal
Just because we're making healthy candy bars doesn't mean we have to skimp on the sweetness.
Instead of using refined sugar, opt for natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup.
These add sweetness without spiking your glucose and have added benefits of vitamins and minerals.
I also love this sugar free maple syrup as a great alternative!
