First attempt at creating my favorite flavor (cookie dough) of you know the bars… starts with “L,” ends with “ARABAR.” With so few ingredients (dates, cashews, dairy-free chocolate chips), the key is getting the proportions right. These turned out crumbly and needed more dates. There will be another attempt. Here’s the recipe I used: Homemade Three Ingredient Energy Bars. The recipe used peanuts, but I used cashews to try to replicate my favorite bar.
It was clear after I processed the ingredients that the mixture needed more dates. I didn’t have more dates. Next time.
These mini chips taste great and have no gluten or dairy ingredients. I mixed them in with a couple pulses in the food processor after the other ingredients were fully chopped.
Rolling these and pressing them under parchment paper was an invaluable step. They still turned out a little crumbly. Like I said, next time, more dates.
Couldn’t keep the little hands out of these.
Final product tasted great but fell apart pretty easily. Looking forward to Take 2!
