Homemade Lara Bar Bites!

1 Comment

Hello all! I have a sweet AND healthy snack for you today! Anyone here like Lara Bars as much as I do? I love love love them!  They taste so yummy and are great to keep on hand for on-the-go quick snacks.

Whenever I buy them (which is rare because they can be a bit pricey), I get the “Cashew Cookie” flavor. I love it for its simplicity: it is simply made of dates and cashews. I have always thought it must be easy enough to copy and cheaper to make on my own, so I decided to give it a go. I found a great resource here. This blog lays out the recipes for tons of different Lara Bar flavors.

I kept it simple and made the “Cashew Cookie” one as well as another made of dates and almonds. They  turned out delicious! I can’t wait to try some different ingredient combinations.

“Cashew Cookie” 

  • 1/2 cup Pitted medjool Dates
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews

Almond/Date 

  • 1/2 cup Pitted medjool Dates
  • 1/2 cup almonds

Directions:

  • Blend pitted dates in food processor until it becomes a paste; place in bowl.
  • Pulse nuts in food processor until chopped to your desired size.
  • Mix date paste and chopped nuts with hands until mixed, and roll mixture into balls.
  • Place on a plate and let it sit in a refrigerator for about a half hour.
  • Eat up!
