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
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.
- 15 medjool dates
- 3 T cocoa powder* plus more for rolling
- 1 cup almonds
- 1/4 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.
