I have gotten into the habit of eating half of a Larabar before my group fitness classes and the other half after. Half before really seems to fuel me without weighing me down. My favorite flavor would have to be Chocolate Chip Brownie followed closely by Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte. Obviously not the healthiest flavors and as I am sure you know, Larabars are not cheap! I thought I would try my hand at making a brownie version of my own minus the chocolate chips.
I was trying to use my juicer to make these but then I had some technical difficulties and had to switch over to using my food processor. I really think the juicer would have given these a much smoother texture so I will have to try again!
- 1/4 cup Pecans
- 1/4 cup Cashews
- 1/4 cup Raisins
- 1-2 Tbsps Cocoa Powder depending on taste
- 3 Dates
- 3 Prunes
Process all ingredients together in food processor until smooth. Shape into a rectangle and cut into 8 squares or balls. Store in fridge until ready to eat.
These would also taste great if you threw a few dried cherries in! I didn’t have any but I will definitely try that next time!
