A few more Lara Bar Recipes

We have been playing with Lara bar recipes and come up with a couple more.  We really like the cherry and blueberry, word of caution, the ingredients for these are a bit pricey.  It may be cheaper to buy than make your own, depending on what kind of price you can get for the dried fruit, just make sure it is only sweetened with fruit juice and not sugar.  My girls love making these, their favorite part is shaping and wrapping them into bars.


3/4 cup raw cashew pieces
2/3 cup dates, coarsely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice concentrate
1 tsp lemon extract (check your ingredients on the bottle)
1/2 tsp very finely grated lemon zest


2/3 cup dates, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup blueberries
1 tsp. lemon extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup raw cashew peices
1/4 cup sliced almonds

New Cherry

2/3 cup dates, coarsely chopped
