7 Healthy Vegan Candy Alternatives That Won't Break Your Diet ...


These healthy vegan candy alternatives will not break your diet. That is, they donโ€™t contain too much sugar, and contain no chemicals, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils (trans fat), or high fructose corn syrup. Vegan candy alternatives still taste delicious and like the real thing, only they are ten times healthier and acceptable to have almost any day you wish. Most of these candy alternatives have chocolate in them as I chose many remakes of popular chocolate bars. So pick your old favorite, make the easy recipe, and enjoy the delicious nostalgia.

1. Snickers Bars

Snickers Bars

If you miss eating Snickers since going vegan, you wonโ€™t after you taste one of these delicious vegan candy alternatives. It contains absolutely no dairy in it, which will be hard to believe after one bite. I didnโ€™t love Snickers as a child, but I would gladly eat one of these babies every day. The best part? This recipe actually contains healthy fats from the raw peanuts, cashews, coconut oil, and macadamia nuts. It is also sweetened pretty much with dates, which dramatically reduces the processed sugar content.


(Makes 16 snack-sized Snickers Bars)

Nougat Filling (see below)

Caramel (see below)

3/4 c. raw peanuts

Raw Chocolate or Chocolate Chips (in melted form)


For the Nougat filling:**

1/2 c. cashews, soaked for 1-2 hours

1/4 c. macadamia nuts, soaked for 1-2 hours

1/4 c. almond or oat flour

1 date, chopped

2 tsp agave

1 tsp coconut oil, melted

dash of vanilla extract

pinch of salt

Combine everything in a food processor until a smooth dough forms. With your hands, form the bottom layer for the candy bar. Set on a plate lined with a piece of wax paper. Refrigerate.

For the Caramel:

12 dates, depitted and chopped

1/3 c. water

6 Tb agave

1 1/2 Tb coconut oil, melted

In a high speed blender, combine all ingredients until completely smooth. Will take about 5 minutes total.

To Assemble:

Combine peanuts and date caramel sauce. Using your hands, place ontop of already formed nougat bottoms. Freeze for 15 minutes. Dip each bar into raw chocolate until fully coated. Set back on plate and freeze or chill in the fridge until chocolate has set. These suckers are melty bad boys so you will want to devour immediately once out of the freezer/fridge.
