Want to make homemade LÄRABAR ? :
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.
