Made with just six simple wholesome ingredients, these bars are sweetened naturally and make the perfect on-the-go healthy snack!
Hello everyone! My name is Meriem and I will be subbing for Lauren today. As you may have already heard, Lauren had to have emergency surgery a few weeks ago and is currently on the road to recovery. While she gets her rest, a group of us food bloggers will be taking turns to keep her blog up and running!
I am very excited to be sharing this recipe with you all today and I'll tell you why. Recently, I discovered the amazing creation known as Larabars and I have literally been obsessed. Unfortunately, while these bars may be sent from heaven, money isn’t coming down with them and they have been putting a hole in my wallet!
So I thought to myself the other day…why don’t I just make them?!
One of the reasons why I love Larabars is also one of the reasons why I can recreate them so easily- -minimal ingredients! I can pronounce everything on the list on their wrapper AND I don't even have to go out of my way to buy any of them!
There are six simple ingredients in these bars: dates, raisins, dried apples, almonds, walnuts, and cinnamon. It takes all of five minutes to whip them up and the results are truly phenomenal! I don't think I'll ever spend money on another Larabar ever again!
- 9 medjool dates pitted
- ¼ cup raisins
- 1 cup dried apples
- 1 cup raw almonds
- ½ cup raw walnuts
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor.
- Process until everything is well-combined and a soft dough forms.
- Press dough evenly onto the bottom of a parchment paper-lined 8x8 inch glass baking dish. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Cut into bars and serve immediately or wrap individually and store in refrigerator.
