So Brandon and I have been addicted to Larabars lately and after discussing how they only have 3-5 ingredients, I figured I’d better attempt to make them myself. I love the flavor combo of peanut butter and jelly so I thought I’d try re-creating these first, although I’d like to try making more flavors of Larabars in the future. Check out the Larabar website here, there are TONS of great flavors too! They are a great snack to eat at work, on the run, or just for an energy boost!
Making these bars took me 10 minutes max from start to finish! This recipe yields only 5 bars, so you may want to double this recipe, or just make more when needed because you can almost make them in a TV commercial break.
Homemade Peanut Butter and Jelly Larabars
2/3 cup roasted and unsalted peanuts
10 dates (found in the produce section)
1/2 cup dried cherries
Grind the peanuts in a food processor, remove and add to a small
Grind the dates and cherries in the food processor until finely
Add date mixture to peanut mixture and mix together until well
Smoosh the mixture into bar shapes and store in plastic wrap in the fridge.
WOW!! Just that easy!! You will be done making these faster than you can restart your computer–umm yea seriously.
