Chocolate Chip “Cookie Dough” Bites

IMG_7561I ♥ LÄRABARS®!!!  They are so simple yet delicious and only consist of a few ingredients such as dates and various nuts.  I’ve been wanting to make them for a while and finally remembered to buy some dates the other day.  One of my favorite flavors is their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough one.  They were so easy to make!

1 1/3 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup cashews (you can do unsalted or I used lightly salted with sea salt)
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

IMG_7564Blend the dates, cashews, and mini chocolate chips in a food processor (I used my Proctor Silex Food Chopper).  If the dates are dry at all, you can add a little water or soak them in some water ahead of time.  Roll the mixture into balls (about 1″) or bars.  Makes 12 balls.IMG_7565
