Peanut Butter Chocolate Homeade Lara Bar (Vitamix update)

I love making Homeade Lara Bars to grab when I am in a pinch. They are so good and I know what goes into them. They are really easy to make. Make these in the food processor. See below for Vitamix Recipe.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Homeade Lara Bars

Yields 4 - 2 oz bars

1 Cup Dates + a few extra
1/2 Cup Almonds
1/2 Cup Peanuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cocoa powder

Food Processor directions: Process Dates, Almonds and peanut until it it really comes together and you can smush it into a ball and it will somewhat stick. Add vanilla and cocoa powder. If it is too dry, add the water. Process again. If it will stick together, continue. If not, add a tsp of water at a time and process. Dump into bowl and remove 2 oz, place in plastic snack bag. Use the bag to shape it into a bar. Store in refrigerator, or at room temp for about a week.

Vitamix directions: Turn on and increase power to 5. Drop in dates and process. Do the same and drop in almonds and peanuts. Add vanilla and cocoa powder. Use damper to push ingredients into the blade. You may have to get a spatchla and move it away from the sides. Dump into bowl and remove 2 oz, place in plastic snack bag. Use the bag to shape it into a bar. *Do not need to add water to this one.

*Warning: it is very hard to get the mixture out of the vitamix. I can usually get most of it and then i put water in the vitamix and blend and drink the milk/almond water. I hate wasting food - im weird like that.

 *I have even froze these and they thawed and tasted great!
