Homemade Lara Bars

One of my all-time favorite snacks to make is one of my homemade Lara Bar recipes.  Whether it’s the Coconut Cream Pie version or the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip kind, I love them.  They’re easy, can be eaten on the go, and are full of healthy fats and no refined sugar.  Winning!

With pumpkin season upon us, I was itching to make a pumpkin pie version of my favorite snack. These Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls are exactly what I had in mind.

How Do I Make These?

They are made with super simple ingredients including pecans, dates, coconut, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spices. They pretty much taste like pumpkin pie in one healthy little ball.

I wasn’t sure if Lars would like these Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls, given Marc’s lack of enthusiasm for pumpkin treats. To my delight – he loved them!  I’m pretty sure he had four of them in one sitting for a snack one day.  That’s more than I would eat!  That’s okay, though – with clean ingredients, I’m fine with him eating all of the Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls that he wants.

The two of us gobbled these up, as a post work-out snack, a post-nap snack, and even as a quick breakfast a couple of days!
