Homemade Lara Bars (Coconut Cherry-Date)

27 Sep

I’ve been reading all over creation that you can make healthy bars at home. So after reading a bunch of recipes, I made up my own… These are SO tasty, and only contain dried fruits and nuts!


Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. almonds
  • 3/4 c. pecans
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 12 pitted dates
  • 1/2 c. dried cherries
  • 1/4 c. dried cranberries
  • 1/4 c. raisins
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded coconut flake

Method

  • Process nuts and salt in a food processor, until it is coarse (not too ground, with a few nice chunks). Pour nuts into a large bowl.
  • Process dates, cherries, raisins, and coconut oil in a food processor until it makes a big ball.
  • Mix the date mixture into the nut mixture with your hands until thoroughly mixed. Add coconut flake and mix further.
  • Press the mixture into a ball. Using a silpat on a baking sheet, press and flatten ball into a rectangle on the silpat. Cut into the size you’d like– I made 10.
