Hey there! I hope everyone is having a restful week after the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I just came back from a great Mother-Daughter trip near San Clemente and I’m feeling ready to tackle the last few to-do’s before I submit my first grad school application. Yikes!
In other news, these homemade larabars taste uh-mazing. Please make this healthy treat!

1 cup raw almonds
2/3 cup pitted dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 cup organic chocolate chips
Grind the almonds in a blender or food processor. Once ground, remove and set aside.
Add dates, vanilla, and salt until finely chopped. Add almonds and chocolate chips and pulse until a dough starts to form.
Place the mixture onto plastic wrap and flatten into bars. Refrigerate for about an hour and then eat! Actually tastes like cookie dough, but healthy! Yay!
