Introduction


LARA BARS use a multi-layer package that keeps out UV light and oxygen, which, in turn, maintains freshness without the use of preservatives. I use plain old plastic wrap and my refrigerator, then pop one in my bag when I知 ready to go.

Set out two pieces of plastic wrap for shaping and wrapping the bars. Do this first; you値l have sticky fingers when you need it.

Add the nuts to the processor and pulse until finely chopped.Add the nuts, along with the cinnamon, to the bowl with the fruit paste. Use your fingers to knead the nuts into the paste (just keep squishing, it痴 fun,brings back memories of play-dough
.
Divide mixture in half. Place each half on each of one of the sheets of plastic wrap. Wrap the plastic around each bar and start squishing into a bar shape form, 3 and 1/2 inches long, 1 inch wide and 3/4-inch thick); press against countertop to flatten bottom side, flattening top side and ends with flat of hand.
Tightly wrap the plastic around each bar and store in the refrigerator. Makes 2 bars.
