Healthier Snickers {Dairy Free + Gluten Free}

Snickers are one of the top 10 most popular candy bars! It’s a Halloween childhood staple that I could literally eat every single day if I didn’t control myself. BUUUUT, know better do better is my motto. Unfortunately, this candy is made from cheap, highly processed ingredients like corn syrup, soy lethicin, processed sugar, palm oil, and “artificial flavors” Ugh. I don’t know why the industry has to do us dirty like this?! Toss that Halloween candy to the curb, and make these delicious CLEAN bars for your family. Want to make it paleo? No problem, just sub the peanuts for almonds or almond butter. Oh and can I just add there’s no baking required! You can also leave it in the freezer once you make them, so you can enjoy these anytime you want. Because Halloween shouldn’t be the only time you indulge on some yummy Snickers! If you love these you will for sure drool over these Peanut Butter Cups! When you make these Snickers, tag us on Facebook + Instagram @nuvitruwellness, so we can see + reshare to our community!
