I have a confession to make.. I have a slight obsession with Larabars. I love pretty much every flavor that they make, but let's be honest, they can get pretty expensive at almost $1 per bar!! So the other day when I was browsing on Pinterest, I saw a few healthy bar recipes and it convinced me to try my hand at making my own! So here goes, hope you enjoy!
Homemade Larabar Recipe:
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
4 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 pinch sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup walnuts
Blend all together in the blender, slowly at first and then speed up. You will need to keep mixing and pushing down until it blends into a cookie batter like consistency.
Put into a casserole dish and place in freezer for about 20-25 minutes. Cut into pieces & enjoy! I keep these refrigerated.
Even my picky husband loves these! Not to mention, they are really quick and easy to make. You can also add extra ingredients such as cinnamon, chocolate chips, raisins, etc. If you make some, let me know how yours turns out!
