I’ve been a huge fan of Larabars for the last few years, this homemade version will knock your socks off at how good they are. With so few ingredients it is surprisingly amazing at how flavorful they are…and they really do taste similar to cookie dough batter.
- 1 c. raw almonds
- 2/3 c. pitted dates
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 1/2 t. sea salt
- 1/8 c. organic chocolate chips
Grind almonds in a food processor or high speed blender until the texture of wet sand. Remove from blender and set aside.
Add dates, vanilla and salt to blender and blend until very finally chopped. Loosen the date mixture and add almonds back to blender along with chocolate chips and pulse just until a “dough” starts to come together.
Pour mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper and press into a large square. Refrigerate for at least an hour, then cut into eight pieces.
