Tips

I did peanut butter chocolate chip - after I made these I realized the chocolate was unnecessary or at least I only needed half as much, they were very sweet! I think next time pistachios and some dried cranberry would be fantastic! YUM


Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse about 30-45 seconds (or more if necessary). The mixture should stick together well (pinch it with your fingers to test!). For mess free bars, line a loaf pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Pour the processed bar mix into the pan, fold the other half of the wrap over the mix and press firmly into bars. Place the bars in the fridge for about an hour and then cut into 8 bars/pieces and then in half again for a total of 16. These homemade larabars can be individually wrapped and stored in the freezer for fast-on-the go snacking and they freeze well.

(If the fruit is really tough or extra chewy, it can be soaked in 1/3 cup of warm water for 10 minutes, then drained

and processed according to the directions above).




Serving Size: 16 bars
