Do you eat ?
They are made only with fruit and nuts. And my favorites, of course, contain chocolate. When I saw over at Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I found a large container of dates at Sam’s Club the other day, and decided it was time.
Homemade Brownie Larabars
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3-4 T cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s Dark cocoa)
- 1/8 tsp salt (optional)
- chocolate chips (optional) (of course I used chocolate chips! Ghirardelli 60% chips)
Blend all the ingredients, using a food processor, Magic Bullet, etc. Form into bars. (bars are sticky, so I placed in between waxed paper and shaped them into ‘bars’)
Verdict? They taste just like Larabars! Wholesome ingredients that are great for an energy boost or quick snack on-the-go. You can change up the nuts and add different fruits to make your own varieties of bars.
