Homemade Larabars [Recipe Review]

homemade larabars

Hello my fellow travellers,

A friend of mine recently shared The Elliot Homestead’s recipe on Larabars. You can find Larabars in your local organic grocery stores and they sell at 3-4 bucks a pop. Quite pricey if you ask me! After going through the Homestead recipe, I thought these would make a great addition to any kitchen and are SO easy to prepare. Added bonus is that these Larabars are made of all natural ingredients – no artificial sugar, gluten free, and guilt free.


Ready to eat

The Larabars are also cheap to put together. I bought a big box of pitted dates (1 kg for $5) and already had nuts and shredded coconut on hand. The only change I made to this recipe was  instead of making separate flavors I combined it into one coconut chocolate Larabar (almonds, organic shredded coconut, dates, and gluten free chocolate chips). And might I say these turned out fantastic. I whipped them up right after breakfast in my food processor and was done in half an hour from start to finish.

I also found the recipe needed more dates than the one cup it called for. You need a nice sticky mixture so they don’t fall apart on you. So add more dates but make sure you keep taste-testing so the Larabars don’t taste overwhelming of date and less of the other flavors.
