So do you love Almond Joys but hate that all that fake, processed chocolate and sugar? Or tired of spending well over a dollar for one measly Larabar? Well, go buy the ingredients or bring them out of your kitchen pantry and give this prescription a try. And if you have this prescription filled now, you’ll get homemade Larabars within less than a few hours. No wait times, and no pharmacist consultations. So what are you waiting for? Stop gawking at food porn and make some of these already. Go on.
Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Raw Almond Joy Larabars
4 cups medjool dates, pitted
2 cups raw almonds
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
4 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)
Soak the medjool dates in warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Add the soaked dates, raw almonds, cacao chips, shredded coconut, and chia seeds into a food processor. Pulse until no chunks remain. Scrape the bowl down if it begins to clump. [This required a lot of patience. I may process the raw almonds first separately, followed by the cacao chips until coarsely ground. Then the medjool dates so it is not so chunky.]
Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper. Press the mixture into the pan using your hands and/or spatula.
Refrigerate for 2 hours for it to set. Slice into desired size and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. [This recipe yields delicious homemade Larabars that are simply to die for. You won’t want to freeze them. I know because, well, I came up with ridiculously amazing concoction :)]
