We love candy bars and sweet treats like everybody else, which is why we wanted to make our own vegan and healthier version of some of our favorite candy bars. Introducing our vegan and collagen supporting snicker bites. These bites are delicious, but also are packed with good for you ingredients. Make them on the weekends for a fun sweet treat at night!
We make ours with almond butter for protein, but you probably can make them with your nut butter of choice! Almond butter is a great way to get in healthy fats and vegan protein. It gives our snickers bite a salty kick. You'll mix in our original vegan collagen support blend or our vanilla vegan collagen support blend to also get added hair, skin, and nail benefits.*
If you want to learn more about what makes our vegan collagen support blends so special, take a peek at our ultimate ingredient guide or read up on our first consumer survey!
You'll add together our collagen support blend and almond butter to the dates. Once filled, you'll add in a pecan for a little crunch! Then you can dip them in some dark chocolate and coconut oil. Coconut oil helps the chocolate melt and become creamy while also adding in more healthy fats which are important to collagen production.*
The dates add in a good natural sweetness. Dates are also really rich in antioxidants which aids the collagen production process and helps with your hair, skin, and nail glow.* They also are incredibly high in fiber.
Once the dates are dipped into the melted chocolate, let them sit in the refrigerator to harden for 15 minutes. Then they are ready to enjoy!
