in Gluten Free, Protein Bars, Recipes, Snacks

LikeLara Balls

This is a really simple, 3 ingredient recipe!  If you’ve never tried Larabars, you’re missing out.  They are so yummy, and come in many different flavors.  They are raw, gluten free and great for a snack (especially after a workout).  I would have with a protein shake as they contain very little protein.  This recipe was inspired by a blog post on Health Habits.  See the video for this recipe.

Makes 9 balls (or 3 bars)

1/2 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup raw almonds
2-3 tsp vanilla extract (or as much as you need to make it form together)

In a food processer, magic bullet or good blender, combine all ingredients and blend.  Form into balls or bars.  Store in fridge.
