Valentine's Raw Mars Bars (DF, GF, Grain-free)

Author Rachael DeVaux



  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds (optional-- but so nutritious! 10g of plant protein per 3 tbsp. Feel free to add ground flaxseed in place)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp filtered water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt


  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1 tsp Sun Potion (completely optional! I used their Macuna Pruriens dopamine bean. Feel free to exclude or use an alternative adaptogenic powder/nutrient-dense powder for added benefits. Original ingredient list calls for lucuma)

Chocolate Covering

  • 3/4 dark chocolate bar (or sub 1/3-1/2 cup chocolate chips)
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 tbsp freeze-dried strawberries


  1. In a food processor, pulse together base ingredients until it reaches a dough-like consistency.

  2. Press into base of parchment paper covered loaf tin and freeze for 10 minutes while you make filling.

  3. In same food processor, pulse together filling ingredients. Pour over the top of the chilled base and freeze once more for about 1-2 hours, or until firm.

  4. Using a knife, cut into rectangles. Melt chocolate bar + coconut oil in a medium bowl, then dip frozen bars until fully covered. Place on parchment paper, sprinkle with sea salt & freeze-dried strawberries and pop back in the freezer to harden! Enjoy!
