Paleo energy bar base

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.

Lasts about 2 weeks, if you haven’t scoffed them already 🙂
