chocolate coconut lara bar balls

My girlfriend Danielle, brought me these on her recent trip to visit.  They were sooooo good, I knew that I could make them somehow.  Well, today was the day to make them and they do not disappoint!

You will need cocoa, chopped walnuts, dates, unsweetened coconut and coconut flour.

Place the unpitted dates in your food processor and process.  Then add the rest of the ingredients.

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

let process, then roll into small balls.

Dip them in coconut flour.  I stored mine in the freezer, right in the date container.  It is a small amount.  But compared to the bag that you would purchase at the store……worth it.  I take out 1-2 for a quick energy bite.  Very good.  I have plenty of coconut flour–which cost me around $8 and the unsweetened coconut was around $8.  I put them in the freezer so that when I got more dates, I could make this again.  I have a LOT of cocoa powder leftover from my huge purchase last year.

A perfect match to the store bought version!
