I am pleased to introduce a healthy gluten free Snickers bar recipe made with dates that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your health.
This homemade recipe is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a healthier alternative to store-bought candy bars.
Dates are the key ingredient in this recipe, and they offer a variety of health benefits.
They are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as potassium and magnesium, which can help improve digestion, boost energy levels, and support overall health.
The best part about this recipe is that it is a no-bake recipe, making it easy and convenient to make. All you need are a few simple ingredients, including dates, almond butter, nuts, chocolate, and sea salt.
The dates are sliced down the middle to create a sweet and sticky base, which is then mixed with almond butter and nuts to create a crunchy and satisfying filling. The bars are then topped with melted chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt for a delicious finish.
One of the significant advantages of making your own Snickers bars is that you can control the ingredients and portion size. These bars are also gluten-free, making them a suitable option for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.
Additionally, they are low in added sugar, making them a healthier alternative to traditional candy bars.

Rich in nutrients: Dates are a good source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, and vitamins B6 and K. These nutrients are important for maintaining good health.
While there is no one food that can magically reduce belly fat, including dates as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle can certainly help with weight management, which in turn can lead to a reduction in belly fat. Dates are high in fiber, which can help you feel full for longer and reduce overall calorie intake. This can help with weight management, including reducing belly fat.
Dates can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator in an air tight container to help them retain moisture. They can be stored up to 6 months in the refrigerator or at room temperature, but may lose moisture the longer they sit. Large quantities of dates can also be frozen for up to one year.
There are 250 calories in 1 bar (1.86 oz) of an original Snickers Bar. For a healthier alternative try making your own homemade snickers bar with dates for under 100 calories.
- Choose high-quality ingredients: Use good quality dates, nuts, and chocolate to ensure that your chocolate bars taste delicious and have a good texture.
- If you don't have a microwave use a double boiler: melting the chocolate with a double boiler will help to avoid burning the chocolate. It will also help to ensure that the chocolate has a smooth texture.
- Experiment with flavors: You can experiment with different flavor combinations by adding spices, extracts, or other ingredients to the melted chocolate.
