Homemade LaraBars

A little over a year ago, we were introduced to Lara Bars. Ever since the first time I tasted one, I have been hooked! They are jammed backed with fruit and nuts. Not only are they nutritionally dense but you can pronounce and know what every ingredient is.

Zach saw that Lara Bars has come out with two new flavors for the fall. We have been on a mission to find these... Snickerdoodle and Pumpkin Spice. We have been to several different Krogers around town and we have had no luck on finding them SO, we decided to make them ourselves. We totally just winged it and they turned out delicious! We wanted to share the recipes with you....

4oz of pitted Dates
4oz roasted salted almonds
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
2 tbsp of coconut milk
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

 Pumpkin Spice
4 oz of dates
4 oz of roasted salted almonds
1/4 cup pumpkin
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1. Put all ingredients in the food processor until well blended. 
2. Line a small loaf pan with parchment paper.
3. Pour all ingredients in loaf pan and mash it in as tight as you can.
4. Put in fridge for several hours to let it set up.
5. Slice and enjoy!

Easy, easy, easy and SO good. 

Let us know what you think!
