Everyone seems to love energy bars. They’re quick, easy and travel well. Store bought brands can cost over $1.50 a piece, so I have set out to make some homemade versions. First I came up with a Clif Bar recipe, then a KIND bar and now homemade chocolate larabars. These homemade chocolate larabars are just a first of several flavors. 🙂
These took only a few minutes to mix up. I think the taste was pretty spot on. I would store them in the fridge just to be sure they stay firm. These should keep in the fridge for at least a week if not more. You can also freeze them!

- In the food processor , mix the dates and water until a paste forms.
- Add in the cocoa powder and almonds and continue to pulse until a dough comes together.
- Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment leaving enough room for some to stick out the sides. That way the bars will be easier to pull out.
- Place in the fridge to firm up for a couple hours.
