Guest Recipe: Imogene’s Healthy Snicker Bites

Sharing is caring!

When we put the call to the Skinnymixers Community for recipes to help celebrate 10 years of Skinnymixers, the lovely Imogene sent in these Healthy Snicker Bites.

“Although this is a very simple recipe, they are the perfect sweet treat for when I’m in desperate need of a chocolate fix, or an impromptu catch up with girlfriends!

You can even use protein boosted peanut butter for extra protein and I have even been known to hide the container in a bag of mixed frozen vegetables so the kids won’t eat them all!”

— Imogene Drennan, Skinnymixer since 2019

You can mix and match the toppings to your own personal preference.

The medjool dates give you the sweetness of caramel coated in the chocolate and nuts.

These Healthy Snicker Bites would also be the perfect addition to a Grazing Platter or Dessert Board.
