Vegan Almond Butter Bars are an almond-twist on the classic snickers candy – made from raw ingredients, no-bake, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and ever so tasty!


I can’t keep these in my house for longer than a day… they are too good! Lately, almond butter has been my thing. I’ve been putting it on everything. So, naturally, I wanted to incorporate it into a candy bar (due to the lack of almond butter candy!).

Vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, no-bake and minimal ingredients – how amazing are these? Not only are they “healthy”, they taste amazing and are certain to impress a crowd. I keep them in my freezer and have one every night after dinner – my non-guilty treat.

Vegan Almond Butter Bars come together in about an hour, but most of the time is hands off (in the freezer). They contain minimal ingredients which you likely already have on hand.


• Almond Flour – for the base. You can substitute oat flour.

Almond Butter – the star of the show.

Medjool Dates – adds the sweetness that makes it a *candy bar*. High in fiber and great for your heart.

Vanilla Extract – an essential ingredient in any dessert.

Raw Almonds – for an added crunch.

Vegan Dark Chocolate – I used Hu chocolate – my favorite raw and ethically sourced/made chocolate. However, feel free to use your favorite vegan chocolate.

Plant Milk – I used oat milk, but feel free to use your favorite plant milk. Any will work. This is just to loosen up our vegan caramel.

To make Vegan Almond Butter Bars, combine almond flour, almond butter, dates, vanilla, and salt (if needed – see note below), in a food processor. Press this mixture into a parchment-lined pan (any size will work – I used a 9×11 and an 8×8). Place the pan into the freezer to cool. Next, in the food processor (no need to clean it!), combine dates, almond butter, plant milk, vanilla, and salt (if needed – see note below). Process until a smooth caramel-like mixture forms, adding more plant milk as needed (it will take about 1-2 minutes). Spread this mixture over the base, then press almonds into the caramel mixture in the pan. Place the pan back in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Melt the chocolate and pour over top. Freeze for a little longer (the temptation is hard)! Then, cut it up and devour – you deserve it.

Vegan Almond Butter Bars are kid-approved! So, make these healthy treats for you and your family to have on the weekends or pack for work/school.

Date Caramel




  • Line a baking dish with parchment paper (feel free to use any size, I've used both 8x8 and 9x11).
  • Add all of the base ingredients to a food processor and mix together until a fine crumb forms. Add more water if needed to bring the mixture together.
  • Press this mixture into the baking dish using a spatula. Then, place in the freezer while you make the date caramel.
  • In the food processor, combine all of the date caramel ingredients and mix for a few minutes. If needed, add more plant milk to make it smooth and creamy.
  • Spread the date caramel over the base. Sprinkle almonds on top and press them into the date caramel using the spatula. Place back in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted.
  • Pour the melted chocolate on top and let it set in the fridge or freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the pan and cut into whatever shape/size pieces you want! Enjoy!
