Friday Favorites: Homemade Espresso Lara Bars

Hello cupcakes and happy Friday!

I wanted to share another version of homemade Larabars! This one is espresso flavored!

-fresh ground coffee beans
-1 container of pitted dates
-1 pkg. raw pumpkin seeds
-1 cup homemade almond butter
-1 cup of unsweetened coconut

Here is the coffee beans I used. I ground about 1 cup in my food processor. Once ground, I dumped them into a bowl.
Here are the dates I use! I used the whole container. I used my food processor to make date paste. Start blending the dates in a food processor. Next, slowly stream in hot water until it forms a paste.
To the date paste, add 2-4 T ground coffee beans, 1 package of raw pumpkin seeds, 1 cup of almond butter, & 1 c unsweetened coconut.
Blend in the food processor until combined. This is what it looks like afterwards. If it doesn't blend all the way, you can mix it in a bowl.
Next, press into a pan. Stick the pan in the fridge or freezer for about 30 minutes. Then take out and cut into bars.

Oh and here is my leg workout for this morning:
