Vegan “Mochi” Date Pieces

Good afternoon! Chopped apple, avocado, almond meal, chocolate chips, cinnamon and hemp seeds in almond milk. I’m having another throw together snack as I write.
This Is it another spin on homemade larabar snacks. It is soo soft and chewy, it reminds me of the texture of mochi. Warranted that it’s not 100% exactly….but is somethin’ like it!  It missed the Valentines Day mark, but these would have made great gifts for the friends or the special somebody in your life.
