Easy homemade copycat LARABAR

I love protein bars. As a healthy snack, after a workout or just a grab-n-go form of good nourishment. When I buy them, I like the brand LARABAR because of the basic ingredients and no additives. They can be expensive so I make them at home. They have limited ingredients and are super easy to make. 

The German Chocolate Protein Bars are probably my favorite because I'm basically addicted to dark chocolate.

Grind oats
Add all ingredients in food processor
Process until thoroughly mixed

Add water as needed so it forms a dough like consistency 
Press into dish and refrigerate for 2 hours
