Healthy Homemade Larabar Bites

AKA, the remixed dry fruits laddoo!!

I've been trying to add a lot of iron into my diet. Recently, I decided to make the boring ritual of eating dates everyday into something fun by making this super healthy dry fruits laddoo. This tastes remarkably like my favorite chocolate chip Larabar, so if you love that, you'll love this recipe too!

Ingredients -

Dates - pitted - 15-20 (around 1 cup)
Roasted almonds - 3/4 cup (you can use cashews or any other nuts you like)
Chia seeds - 1/4 cup
Cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
Mini chocolate chips - 1/4 cup
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Cinnamon powder - a dash
Salt - a pinch
Oil - 1 tbsp (I used coconut oil and ghee)

Method - 

1. In a mixie or a food processor, pulse all the ingredients, except chocolate chips, till it forms a uniform, cohesive mixture.

2. Dump into a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.

3. Use some melted coconut oil or ghee to form the balls and refrigerate for an hour. Serve!

Makes around 12-15 laddoos.

It took me five minutes to make the recipe. It's so easy. The laddoos are so tasty and chocolatey and nutritious! While this recipe makes an ideal energy booster, high in nutrients, watch how many you eat because it is also high in calories and sugar! Hope you enjoy the recipe!
