Just stopping by to share my new favorite fall recipe.
I love Lara bars. They taste like dessert and don’t cause my blood sugar to spike as fast as other snacks do. They are made of only a few whole, natural ingredients and are completely Paleo (gluten & dairy free!). There’s only one down side, the fun flavors are hard to find, and they can get expensive.
I looked a little on Pinterest and I found that Lara bars aren’t very difficult to make. You know what’s in them because it says right on the package! I was inspired to try my own flavor.
I’m a pumpkin kind of girl, and with fall right around the corner, I decided to create Pumpkin Pie Lara bars.
Without further ado…
(makes ~6 lara bar sized bars)
-1/2 cup mixed nuts (almonds and cashews
-1.5 cups dates (pitted)
-2 tsp pumpkin spice
-1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil (softened)
-sprinkle of (sea) salt.
Chop all nuts in the good processor. Add pitted dates and process. Add remaining ingredients and process. Spread in a small pan/Tupperware/Pyrex dish. Place in the fridge for 1 hour, then eat!
