Blueberry Muffin Energy Bites

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 dried blueberries instead of cherries.

Blueberry Muffin Energy Bite Request

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!

Blueberry Muffin Energy Bites

Description

Make your own healthy, naturally sweet snack bites with this recipe for Blueberry Muffin Larabar Balls. They really do taste like blueberry muffins!


Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Place almonds and cashews into food processor (affiliate link) and pulse until they are chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
  3. Add nuts back into the processor with the dates. Add in blueberries, vanilla, lemon juice and sea salt. Pulse until everything is well combined.
  4. 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).

Notes

  1. 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.

  1. I have made Lara bars before but needed a good Blueberry Muffin recipe and found it here. Thanks for the simple directions and puctures.A win-win for my family.

    I didnt have a full cup of blueberries so I ended up just putting more dates in to fill in the difference. It worked out fine. But next time I will make sure I have the full amount of Blueberries because I love them and want more of that bursting taste in these blueberry bites.

  2. I just made these but because I didn’t have any dried blueberries I used dried cranberries and they are AWESOME. I think they are even better than Larabars. Good job and I will be looking at your site for more recipes. Thank you!

  3. Hi! I’m new to your Pinterest board and so excited to try these. They look amazing! I was reading the part about a 4×4. I understand the walking thing all to much. I did get a 4×4 and it has saved me from walking a mile UP my driveway every time it snows. Best investment ever. Good luck and thanks for healthy food recipes

  4. These are SO so good! And they’re super quick, with only one thing to wash. Even my boyfriend (a self-proclaimed larabar hater) LOVED these. I planned to make a big batch of these as snacks throughout the week but somehow I ended up with less for the week than I expected… 😉 So tasty!

  5. I’m on the west coast (Seattle) and we haven’t had any snow this year! I saw some snaps from my friends on the east coast and got a little jealous – but if I am around snow for more than a day I start complaining so I’m probably better off without it haha. I love how simple this ingredient list is! I’m a sucker for a good energy ball, and definitely need to try blueberry to get out of my cranberry rut 🙂

  6. Great idea! I wish you could find dried blueberries with no added sugar more often. My favorite Larabar is definitely the peanut butter and jelly. I bet just swapping out the almonds for peanuts in this recipe would be similar.

  7. These muffin balls look so good, Brittany! I didn’t even know that you could get dried blueberries. I hope I can find them in a health store near me so I can make these! They would make the perfect snack or dessert 🙂
