Make your own healthy, naturally sweet blueberry muffin Larabar energy bites. They really do taste like blueberry muffins!
Do you remember the cherry Larabar energy bites I posted earlier this month? They are super tasty and today’s version is very similar, but with you guessed it — dried blueberries instead of cherries.
I got the idea for this version from a friend who liked the cherry recipe on Facebook, but commented that she’d love a blueberry version.
I aim to please, especially when a reader requests something so I quickly tried the recipe with dried blueberries. They turned out to be delicious and a littler sweeter than the cherry version, which I like. And they really do have a flavor reminiscent of blueberry muffins or cobbler. Yum!
I love how simple the ingredients are:
- medjool dates
- dried blueberries
- sea salt
I hope you like these as much as we do! If you happen to try these blueberry muffin energy bites be sure to leave a comment and star rating below. Your feedback is super helpful for the EBF team and other readers.Print
Make your own healthy, naturally sweet snack bites with this recipe for Blueberry Muffin Larabar Balls. They really do taste like blueberry muffins!
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 cup Medjool dates (about 12-14), pitted
- 1 cup dried blueberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- pinch of sea salt
- Place almonds and cashews into food processor and pulse until they are chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
- Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
- Add nuts back into the processor with the dates. Add in blueberries, vanilla, lemon juice and sea salt. Pulse until everything is well combined.
- Scoop dough from food processor * and form into small balls using your hands. Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge (for 1-2 weeks) or freezer (for 1-2 months).
*The dough may seem a little loose or crumbly at first, but it should be sticky enough to form into balls. If it seems way too crumbly, your dates may have been too dry. Simply add a little water (starting with 1-2 teaspoons) until the mixture is sticky enough to hold together and form into balls.
