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!

Copycat Homemade Larabar Bites Recipe is raw, vegan, gluten free and paleo! Not only are they healthy, they're delicious & take less than 5 minutes to make! *You can substitute chocolate protein powder for some of the cocoa in these bites for more protein. Exchange one tablespoon of the cocoa for one tablespoon chocolate protein powder. Store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.
Ingredients
  • 15 medjool dates
  • 3 T cocoa powder* (plus more for rolling)
  • 1 cup almonds
  • ¼ cup hot water
Instructions
  1. 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.

      Thank you, Ashley. I was really pleased with them. Those bars are so expensive in the stores, but are so easy to make!

    Yum! I like those bars because they are a great pick me up around 2 in the afternoon. Thanks for sharing! Happy Wednesday!

    Love Lara Bars especially the apple pie ones. Love Medjool dates too. Their site has an energy bar with dried pineapple and dried mango as well as some nuts and coconut. My kids suggested that some chocolate would be nice so I think I would like to try these too.

      Pineapple and mango sounds awesome in a bar. I do like these because when I’m having a chocolate craving instead of eating a Snickers, I have one or 2 or these and usually my craving is satisfied. Thanks for stopping by!

      I have not tried the recipe with walnuts, they’re basically the same texture as almonds and should work in the recipe though
