I'm not sure why I'm calling these Larabars since I've never had a Larabar but that's what everyone else on the Internets are calling them, so there you are. These are very similar to these coconut energy balls I had made, in fact you could simply shape this mixture into balls instead. On a side note, I remember when I was young, family and friends would bring Medjool dates back from trips abroad and they would be such a treat. Then Middle Eastern stores started popping up and we could get them there. Now, they're at Trader Joe's. How things have changed. Also, if you add some ghee and milk to this recipe you've basically got date halwa, which Pakistanis have been making for, well, forever. But back to the Larabars, there are so many varieties you can try at home.
