{Recipe} Coconut Cream Energy Bars



These bars are a spot on copycat of Coconut Cream Larabars, so if you're a fan of them or coconut in general stick around.
Ingredients:
15 Medjool dates, pitted
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS water

To make:
  • Process almonds, cashews and coconut in a food processor until finely ground.


  • Add dates, oil and water. Process until a dough forms.


  • It should hold together if you pull some out with your hand to check that it's ready.


  • I like using a loaf pan for my bars. Line with parchment paper and place dough mixture into pan. You can also use an 8 x 8 baking pan.


  • Press down mixture with your hands to pack it in well. I use this roller to help get it evenly pressed down.


  • Refrigerate for at least an hour to set the bars.  Cut and wrap individually or store in an airtight container.

  • They should last a few weeks in the fridge (if you can keep them around that long).  They make a good snack, healthy dessert or even breakfast on the go!
