This recipe for homemade lara bars. But these look amazing. These tasted awesome!
Happy Friday! Tried them and served them to a class of 8-12 year-olds and my school staff.
Nice work. They are good, but these surpass them in taste and it is way cheaper to make them. My kiddos fell in love with them as well! Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream. Most of that is from the dates, but have to remember these are not diet bars, but energy bars.
Hi Jeannie, I cut strips of parchment paper and used those to wrap the bars.
Approximate nutritional values per piece if you divide recipe into 36 pieces the number of bars I came up with: These are delicious! I was just going to comment on my experience with using the dates and almonds as a base. That sounds amazing! Servings 18.
Eventually I tried the chocolate coconut chew and I was hooked! This Homemade Larabars clone tastes more like a Snickers than health food. I have never bought Larabars, and now I never will! I have never tried chocolate chips. What works best? Thanks, Katie! I think Almond butter would be much more neutral! I got chopped dates all the store had and next time I am going to look for whole pitted ones since my bars came out a bit crumbly. Energy bars. Ingredients 4 cups whole pitted dates moist ones work best 2 cups raw or toasted whole shelled almonds 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter or sunflower or cashew butter, divided or more, if necessary.
So where does the Larabar of the recipe title come into all of this?
