I had such a good response from everyone over my Energy Snack Bars , I decided to try some different varieties of healthy snack bars.
If you close your eyes and imagine really hard these Homemade Larabar Bites taste like fudge brownies! I told that to my husband and he replied, “Let me be the judge of that!”
So maybe they will or maybe the won’t taste like a fudge brownie to you. They are good and chocolatey and healthy…and great when you need ‘just a bite’ of something. By the way, that’s my favorite phrase. “I just need a bite of something.” But, seriously, so much of the time I don’t want a meal. I want just a couple of bites of something. It totally works for me until we go on family vacation. All four of us are on a different eating schedule. It drives Big Daddy crazy that we’re all hungry at different times. He hates that I ‘nibble’ all day and never want a big meal. Ugh, I hate big meals and feeling stuffed! I hate that he wants two huge meals a day. Normally, it works out fine and dandy, except those few weeks out of the year when we’re all together 24/7!
After 14 years I’ve learned to take snacks with me at all times. This Copycat Homemade Larabar Bites Recipe is perfect for those times. I just keep them in my purse and I’m good to go!
Only 4 simple ingredients in the energy bites
- 15 medjool dates
- 3 T cocoa powder* (plus more for rolling)
- 1 cup almonds
- ¼ cup hot water
- Add dates to a food processor and blend until chopped. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until ingredients form a paste. Dump dough onto a piece of waxed paper and form a 6 x 6 inch square. Allow to rest a minute. Using a knife, cut into 16 equal portions. You can either leave them square shaped or roll into a ball, as I did. (Shown in the pictures) You may want to lightly dust with extra cocoa powder so they won't be so sticky and will be easier to roll into a ball.
