paleo snicker cakes 3

Paleo Snickers Cake (the best darn no-bake paleo cake… ever!).

Three words: paleo snickers cake. Need we say any more? Well, not really… but we will (by all means though, just keep on scrolling for the recipe below!).

ACTUALLY! We made a new snickers cake… check out the below image and get the NEW RECIPE HERE!

paleo de-snicker-licious cake

This cake is not only ridiculously good looking but also tastes ridiculously naughty (aka delish), go ahead, have an ‘Oh. My. Food’ moment… we’ve had several.

So what’s in it? Well, your regular snickers is full of peanuts/sugar + other nasties but our paleo snickers cake features the much more better for you roasted almond!

We love this paleo snickers cake so much, not just because it tastes so darn delish but it’s such a perfect example for those moments of intense questioning…

“So you don’t eat chocolate?” No, we do.

“Well what about cake?” Yep, we eat that too.

“So you always say no to dessert?!” Nope, we always say YES to dessert (if it’s merrymaker approved).

“Jee, it must be hard!” Nope, not really… just check out this paleo snickers cake we made the other day! 

Have we sold it enough? Our paleo snickers cake is good… like really good… and it’s not even hard to make… it’s like easy… super easy in fact!

Let us know how you like it, we’d love to see pictures of your really really delicious looking creations!

Always merrymaking,

e + c

p.s this is a treat for a reason, we don’t recommend you eat the whole cake in one sitting (speaking from experience here!).

stuff you need
    for the base
    1. 1 1/2 cups walnuts
    2. 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
    3. 3/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
    4. 100 grams pitted dates (soaked in boiling water for at least 10 minutes + drained)
    5. 1 tbs. melted coconut oil
    6. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    7. 1 tbs. coconut sugar
    8. 2 tbs. crushed roasted almonds
    for the filling
    1. 250g raw cashews (soaked in water for at least one hour + drained)
    2. 100 grams pitted dates (soaked in boiling water for at least 10 minutes + drained)
    3. 50g raw honey
    4. 1/4 cup coconut sugar
    5. 250mL coconut milk
    6. 150g coconut oil
    for the topping
    1. one serve of our paleo chocolate (link below!)
    2. 1/4 cup crushed roasted almonds
    now what
    1. Line the base of a 24 cm spring form cake tin with baking paper.
    2. Start with the base. In a food processor (we use our Vitamix), place the walnuts, raw cacao powder + desiccated coconut.
    3. Whiz these ingredients until a fine meal forms.
    4. Transfer the meal into a large mixing bowl, leave this for now.
    5. Drain the soaked dates + place them into the food processor, along with the coconut oil + vanilla extract.
    6. Whiz these ingredients until a smooth paste forms.
    7. Transfer the paste into the mixing bowl with the meal + mix together (you may need to get your hands dirty for this job!).
    8. Once it’s all combined, press the base into the cake tin, making sure you press it out evenly, covering the entire base.
    9. Sprinkle the almonds + coconut sugar over the base.
    10. Place this into the freezer.
    11. Now for the filling (you will need to rinse the food processor).
    12. Drain the cashews + place them into the food processor.
    13. Whiz these until a crumbly, buttery paste forms.
    14. Now add the drained dates, raw honey, coconut sugar, coconut milk + coconut oil.
    15. Whiz on high speed for around 4 minutes or until completely smooth.
    16. Take out the base from the freezer + pour the filling on top of the base (shake the tin carefully to even out the top).
    17. Sprinkle crushed roasted almonds on top + place the cake into the freezer for around an hour.
    18. Meanwhile, whip up a batch of our paleo chocolate, take the cake out of the freezer + drizzle the chocolate over the cake.
    19. Place the cake back into the freezer for 5 minutes or until ready to serve.
    20. When ready to serve, let sit for 10 minutes, then rub the outside of the cake tin with a hot cloth + release the spring form slowly (you may need to run a knife around the edge).
    21. Cut into slices with a hot knife!
    Merrymaker tip
    1. Store the remainder of your delish paleo snickers cake covered in the fridge for a week. It can also be stored in the freezer + thawed out when it's paleo snickers cake time!

    1. Yummo, looks amazing girls! I’m considering jumping into the paleo lifestyle, have you got any tips in where to buy coconut sugar, coconut flour and raw cacao in Canberra or online? Cheers πŸ™‚

    2. Got the ingredients to make this today – going to try whip it up tonight! I hope I don’t eat too much of it though!

      One small thing – the paleo chocolate links to the choc orange no bake cake

    3. Hi Amy! Glad you think it looks delish (trust us… it’s a lil too tasty!) πŸ˜‰ Most of the products we use you can find at your local health food store. We love Natural Living at the fyshwick markets, they have a great range of coconut + cacao products! We have also bought products from – if you are doing a large order this is great as the products are cheaper (but they come from overseas)! You can use discount code CZC296 for your first order πŸ™‚ Hope this helps + keep us posted on your progress! e & c

    8. Made this on the weekend for dinner with some friends last night & it was fantastic! So easy to put together ahead of time & they loved it. Thanks for a great recipe! πŸ™‚

    9. Hi Ashleigh, you could use extra honey or a little natvia (stevia). The coconut sugar makes it that little bit extra caramelly. YUM.

    10. Oh my gosh, so good! Made it on Christmas Day for the family and they all loved it, so easy and impressive. Thanks for the recipe, will definitely be sharing.

    11. Hi jen! So glad to hear you and your family liked the snickers cake! YUMMO! It is definitely one of our favourites πŸ™‚ e & c
