Homemade Chocolate Larabars
- 1 Cup of loosely packed pitted dates. It's about 20 or so dates. I used Medjool dates.
- 1/2 C Semisweet Chocolates. Or Dark whatever you prefer. (Not pictured)
- 1/2 C Hemp Seeds
- 1/2 C Black Sesame Seeds
- 1/2 C Sesame Seeds
- 1/2 C Sunflower Seeds
- Honey - Drizzle a little bit to make it sweeter or wetter. But it' optional Not pictured
Mix all the ingredients together in a mixer. Scrape the sides down and mix all the dates and seeds thoroughly.
If you want to use nuts, mix the nuts with dates before adding seeds. If you pinch the mixture and it binds together, then, it's done.
Line a glass pan with parchment paper.
Pour the mixture in.
Using your hands, push down the mixture into the pan to flatten it out.
Lift the parchment paper out of the pan, and place it on a cutting board. Using the flat side of the knife, compact it down more.
With the edge of the knife, push the edges in to shape it.
Cut them in sizes you want and use a spatula to remove them.
Wrap them up individually and store in an airlock container.
The bars are good for one week in the fridge. You can freeze them too for a month. I wrap them up as pictured, then, stack them up and freeze them in glass lock containers.
