Hacking Larabar Jocalat

10 Apr

I’ve actually never tried Larabar Jocalat but from what I read, it’s similar to regular Larabar but with chocolate. Since I have quite amount of nuts and dates, I decided to make my own hack version.

1 cup of walnut
1 cup of almonds
9 pitted medjool dates
3-4 Tbsp cocoa powder
A dash of salt

Blend everything using your food processor until everything incorporates together..

When everything comes together become a paste, you’re done!

Set them aside and refrigerate until it’s set, then shape them into whatever you want! I just made mine into bars

No added sugar and good for emergency snacks. I wouldn’t recommend eating these on daily basis because of the high sugar content (from the dates). But sometimes, when you’re in a pinch, it becomes pretty handy.

    I make my own larabars too because they are SO $$$. I have not tried the jocalot variety but as far as the regular larabar, I recommend soaking the dates in water overnight – it makes them blend much easier 🙂

      Thanks for the tips! Will keep that in mind next time I’m making my next batch.
