Healthy Mars Bar Slice

This healthy mars bar slice is to die for! Literally one of my favourite recipes :) I hope you enjoy it xx


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 14 fresh medjool dates
  • 1 scoop Shape Health protein superfood (can omit – if not using, you will not need to add water)
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp water


  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 8 fresh medjool dates
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 1 pinch salt


  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp rice malt syrup (or sweetener)


  1. Blend almonds in a food processor and add remaining ingredients (besides water) and blend well.
  2. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until it starts to stick together. You want it to be sticky but still a little crumbly.
  3. Press into the base of a pan and put in the freezer
  4. Heat all filling ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat (this make take up to 20 minutes), stirring continuously. When all the dates have melted and it starts thickening, this is when it is ready.
  5. Allow to cool and then pour over the base. Put in freezer for 1 hour.
  6. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the slice.
  7. Allow to set in the freezer for at least 3 hours before cutting.
  8. Store in the freezer and remove 5-10 minutes before serving.
Makes 12 slices.

    Is it like a ice cream?

      Rachael Attard says:

      Kind of, I guess! xx

    Beth Larocque says:

    What size pan would be required for this recipe?
    Looks amazing, can’t wait to try your recipe.


      Rachael Attard says:

      Hi Beth! It was about 21 x 8cm :) xx

    Andrea says:

    Hi! I’m wondering if you chopped or pureed the dates before melting them. Also did you use a can of coconut milk using only the cream once separated? Thank you! Can’t wait to make this!

      Rachael Attard says:

      Hi Andrea, I just chopped up the dates using kitchen scissors. And I used the whole can of coconut cream, but coconut milk would also work :) I hope you enjoy it! xx

    Lyn says:

    I had trouble with the topping I melted the coconut oil & added it to the other ingredients I couldn’t get it to combine the coconut oil separated from the other ingredients any advice

      Rachael Attard says:

      Hi Lyn, I’ve never had these troubles. I melted my coconut oil so that it was a complete liquid (not just soft) and stirred it really well. If you let it sit, it might separate. So I would stir it really well and then pour it straight on :) xx

        Lyn says:

        Thank you for your response

    Laura says:

    Hi Rachel, What size tin of coconut cream do you use? 270ml or 400ml?

      I used a 400mL tin xx

    Jen says:

    How many calories per serving?

      Rachael Attard says:

      Hi Jen,

      If you cut it into 12 pieces here are the calories and macros.

      Calories – 327
      Carbs – 48.3g
      Fat – 15g
      Protein – 5.5g

      I actually cut the pieces in half as they are quite large so it would be half the calories ;)
