Chocolate Pecan Pie Bites

We love Lara Bars in this house, and we’ve been eating a lot of them.

A lot.

As you might now, eating a lot of Lara bars winds up being a tad bit expensive. And, while I’m all about supporting a great company with a great product, sometimes, the frugalista in me demands that I take action. Besides, sometimes I really just want a bite or two of luscious Lara Bar goodness.

Voila, the Chocolate Pecan Pie Bite.

This recipe is by no means original People all over the internet have been coming up with their own home made version of Lara bar goodness. The fabulous Ricki has La”Raw” bars, aka Cocoa Nibbles. Gluten Free Gidget has Pumpkin Pie Fudgie Babies. Hallie of Daily Bites has Carrot Cake Bites. And on, and on.

And, now I have….

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bites

4 oz raw pecans
4 oz dates
1/4 t. salt
1 T. raw cocoa powder

Toss all ingredients in a food processor and process until ball forms. (If your mixture isn’t coming together, it’s probably because your dates were a smidgen dry. Try sprinkling with a teaspoon of water at a time until the mix comes together.) Scoop with small cookie scoop and form into balls. Refrigerate until firm. Makes about 10.

    My motivation for the LaRaw bars was the same as yours–hated spending so much money on something I knew I could reproduce at home! I love your pecan pie version. Mmmmm. . . .dates and pecans and cocoa–what else do you need in life? ;)
