Espresso "Larabar" Bites

1 c oats
1/2 c nuts
1/2 c dried fruit (dates, prunes, raisins..)
1 tbsp ground coffee
2 tbsp nut butter
1/4 c 100% pure maple syrup 
1/4 c coconut shreds

1. Put in a food processor: oats, nuts, fruit, coffee, nut butter, syrup.
(I used almond butter for nut butter, prunes for the fruit, pecans for the nuts, and flavored coffee)

You'll have to stir it a few times.
It'll come together though. You can leave it chunky or keep going to make it smooth. I left mine chunky.

2. Toast the coconut.

3. I dumped my mix into a bowl
To roll into balls (you could totally make into mini bars or big bars)

4. Then roll (really roll and smash the coconut into them so they don't flake off).
(You could really roll them in anything you wanted like cocoa or choc chips or sprinkles even)
This is just one recipe. You could totally create these into your own and make different flavors based on the fruit or add-ins 
You could skip the coffee and add a tbsp of cocoa powder...
