I’m in the middle of a no sugar challenge. 21 days of healthy eating to kickstart the year. I needed a good swap for snacking, and remembered that Lara bars had no sugar. Well, they are $1.25 apiece, so I decided to make my own and I’m glad I did. I came up with a new flavor that I think you’re going to love!
Homemade Brownie Lara Bars
- 1 cup cashews (unsalted)
- 1 cup of pitted dates
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
- 1 teaspoon of water
- Combine all ingredients in food processor. Pulse to mix, and then process until well combined.
- Line a 8×8 pan with wax paper, and press the mixture into the pan to form one big square.
- Refrigerate for an hour to help everything meld together. Enjoy!
