Hey guys! I’m feeling a little silly, because I forgot to take a picture of my energy bars…before I may or may not have devoured them.
But, you may have heard of Larabars. This is a DIY, customizable version!
You will need:
- 500g pitted dates
- 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
- dash of vanilla extract
- Chunks of fruit, nuts, etc. Chocolate chips are also delicious.
Basically, you Hulk-smash that until it’s smooth. Or use a food processor until it pulls into a ball. Then gently press it into a square tin of the appropriate size (they should be about 2cm thick to be manageable). You can cut and eat them straight away, but I find they’re less sticky after being in the fridge for a couple hours.
