Homemade Chocolate Larabars

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!

Instructions

  1. In the food processor , mix the dates and water until a paste forms.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder and almonds and continue to pulse until a dough comes together.
  3. 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. 
  4. Place in the fridge to firm up for a couple hours.

  1. Just made these today, & they are SO good! My 1 1/2 year old son (who’s allergic to milk, so doesn’t get many chocolatey treats) particularly loved them (& he’s a picky eater)! Thank you so much for posting these recipes, I never thought to make my own Larabars. Can’t wait to try some others!

      1. Yes, I know! I just made them today as a matter of fact! Instead of making into bars though, I used it as the chocolate coating for your Flourless Cookie Dough Truffles. Also a HUGE hit with the kids! Thank you!!

  2. My kids and I adored these! Thank you for a new favorite! I added a couple drops of peppermint to make them mint. Awesome recipe.
