New Video: How to Make Larabars

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

*If you can’t see the video, click here.

Watch the video above to see how easy it is to make homemade Larabars! They seriously taste better than the real thing… but be careful, they are highly addictive! ;)

Homemade Larabar Recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups of your favorite nuts (I chose almonds & cashews)
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Medjool Dates (8 oz container or about 12) – pits removed
Fresh lime and/or lemon juice

Blend the 2 cups of nuts and 1 cup coconut flakes in food processor (or blender) until a powder forms. Now add the wet stuff – Medjool Dates and lime/lemon juice (I used the juice from one lime). After blending, if it’s still on the dry side, add a few tablespoons of water so that a dough forms. Finally, line the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish or pan with parchment paper, then evenly spread the dough in the dish. Now just throw the baking dish in the fridge for a few hours. Enjoy!

How to Make Homemade Banana Peanut Butter Cups by Hip2Save.comDirections: Place 16 mini cupcake liners on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

How to Marinate & Grill London Broil

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Tips on How to Marinate & Grill London Broil Hip2Save.com

This Summer, prepare a budget-friendly London Broil that is super tender and flavorful – the perfect meal for a crowd! Marinate a Top Round Steak or Flank Steak for 8+ hours or overnight to soften these tough cuts of meat. In addition, scoring the meat will ensure excellent flavor by allowing more of the marinade to penetrate.

Marinated & Grilled London Broil

Adapted from Simply Recipes and Spicy Southern Kitchen

Ingredients:

3 pounds of Top Round Steak or Flank Steak (also known as London Broil)

Marinade Ingredients:

1/3 cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
juice of one lime
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 cloves Minced Garlic
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning Blend
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
How ro Grill an Awesome London Broil Hip2Save.com
Directions: Start by scoring meat with a sharp knife – go about 1/4 inch deep in a diagonal cross pattern and be sure to score both sides of meat. Whisk together ingredients for marinade. Pour over meat in a shallow dish, or place meat and marinade in a freezer bag. Chill in marinade for 8 hours or overnight. Before grilling, let meat come to room temperature. Heat grill to medium high heat. Gently shake off excess marinade and place meat on grill for about 8-10 minutes on each side until desired doneness (I like to add a little fresh cracked pepper on top while grilling). Pull meat off grill and let rest for 10 minutes and then slice. Serves about 9 people.

This was the first time that my attempt at cooking London Broil was a huge success and it was a big hit at a family gathering. I also made these easy Foil Packet Potatoes. I diced up the leftover meat and sautéed with onion and bell peppers which made for great tasting tacos the next day.

Oatmeal Energy Bites

Recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com

Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond butter (or substitute peanut butter)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
Easy & Healthy Oatmeal Energy Bites No Bake Recipe from Hip2Save.com
Directions: In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Roll out teaspoon sized balls and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Freeze until set about one hour. Enjoy and keep leftovers in a Ziploc bag in fridge or freezer. Makes about 20-24 energy bites.

Personalize this recipe with add-ins such as raisins, dried cranberries, pumpkin, and dried cherries. I’ve also used ground bran cereal like Fiber One instead of flaxseed. These bites make a great afternoon snack and are also handy to take along when traveling.
