Want to make homemade LÄRABAR ? :

image

I love LÄRABAR but sometimes they are hard to get, so I make my own.

LÄRABAR are: GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, SOY FREE, and VEGAN. They are made of basic natural ingredients, fruits and nuts.

Cherry pie ( my favorite ):


1/4 cup Dried Cherries
1/4 cup Seedless/Pitted whole Dates
1/3 cup almonds (unsalted)


The Basic Ratio:
one part dates + one part dried fruit + a little more than one part nuts + spice


Place the dates and cherries in a food processor. Blend until it becomes like a paste. Transfer blended dates and cherries to a bowl.

Add the nuts to the processor and pulse until chopped fairly small (but not too much). Add the nuts, to the bowl with the fruit paste. Use your fingers to knead the nuts into the paste. Next you can spread the mixture out onto a plate covered in cling wrap. Using your hands mold the mixture into individual bars. Wrap each separately in plastic wrap or in small ziplocks. It is a good idea to refrigerate the bars after making to maintain freshness and let the form set (try to let them set in the fridge for 20 minutes before you eat one).


For the recipes below, follow the same instructions as above, but substitute the different ingredients and measurements.  All recipes make 2-3 bars. Feel free to double the recipes to make more.

Yes I know, most random assortment of pictures ever haha

But after school my afternoon was kind of random. My mom texted me this pic of Guinevere at the vet—she took her at lunch. I am now proud to say that Guinevere is MOST DEF a girl, a year old, happy, and totally healthy! :) She was already spayed so she just had to get shots and now she’s good to go! (And lying next to me on my couch funny enough <3 I’m so happy she found me! SO SO THANKFUL!) 

After school I didn’t do much, just kind of chilled/did whatever. Tried this Jocolat Lara Bar that was really yummy, went to go get my check at work and bought one of these (pictured) new Stop and SHop reusable bags when I paid for my grocery items—stoppies got some nice xmas swag goin on lol.

But ya, my scene for acting went well, even though my partner I swear smelled like so bad I was like ughh it was like an old man mixed with bad B/O I wanted to pass out. I’m like wow fml. But I got through it, if I can get through some of the things I got thru thus far I think I can handle this!

Just glad tomorrow is Friday and much closer to break! 

you guys know me,

When I want a snack, I usually just go with some type of bar. So, I had seen these things called Larabars for a long time and never bothered to look at one. I thought they were like so many other bars and were filled with sugar and gmo soy protein products. Well, I was wrong. Larabars come in so many different flavors and are all so simple! They don’t have any added sugar or weird preservatives. No GMO or anything ‘guilty’ in them. Just fruit or nuts depending on flavor. (there are so many different flavors to choose from too). They also make a product called Jocalat. It’s amazing and again, no sugar, nothing plus it’s all organic. Finally, a no-guilt yummy snack ^.^
