Chocolate Peppermint Larabars


If you are not familiar with larabars, let me introduce them to you. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and scrumptious. They taste like cookies because the dates make them sweet combined with super foods like cocoa and almonds. Basically, you get dessert, without the guilt. I eat them in between meals to tide me over. No more of those processed full of sugar granola bars. Eat healthy and wholesome. 

I developed this bar for Christmas. They taste like a thin mint cookie from the girl scouts. Suitable for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, or dessert. Enjoy!

Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Chocolate Peppermint Larabars


1 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cashews
2 TBSP cocoa powder
1 tsp peppermint extract

Add all ingredients to your food processor and pulse until fulling incorporated. 
Spread into an baking dish lined with parchment and freeze for 1 hour before cutting. 

I had to share this picture because my dog peanut was so interested in these bars, I had a hard time keeping her out of the picture.
