Homemade Apple Pie Lara bars
These Homemade Apple Pie Lara Bars are super easy and super affordable! I LOVE Lara Bars, but also love making them at home for less. If the Apple Pie flavor is a favorite of yours, you’re sure to love these!
Servings: 10 bars
- 1 cup pitted dates packed*
- 1 cup almonds
- 3/4 cup freeze dried apples measured before processing to powder**
- 3/4 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp water optional
Add almonds and pitted dates to the bowl of a food processor and process 10-15 seconds.
Scrape down sides and add ground freeze dried apples, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon to the bowl and continue to process until a fairly smooth consistency is reached. You should be able to pinch some together and have it holds it's shape. If it’s too dry, add 1/2-1 tbsp water and pulse another 5-10 seconds, then try the “pinch test” again.
Line an 8x8 pan with plastic wrap, then add mixture to pan and spread out evenly, pressing firmly with your fingers. Once mixture is evenly spread, use the back of a spatula to level the bars out, again pressing firmly. I like to add plastic wrap to the top of them and press down firmly to help smooth them out.
Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes then cut into 10 bars, wrap individually in plastic wrap so they’re ready to take on the go! Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
- If not using Medjool dates, soak Deglet or other dates in water for 15 minute before using, then drain water. I often use Deglet dates because they're so affordable.
- Measure 3/4 cup freeze dried apples BEFORE ground, then add them to Nutritbullet or ninja maker and process to a fine powder.
