Fruit and Nut Bars (Copycat Larabar)

With just 5 simple and nutritious ingredients and no baking, these Fruit and Nut Bars taste like store-bought Larabars but for less cost.

– Cashews or almonds – Pitted dates – Dried fruit: – Shredded unsweetened coconut – Rolled oats

Ingredients Needed:

Place the cashews into a medium bowl and cover with hot water. Let sit for at least 10 and up to 30 minutes. Drain.

Step 1.

Add the drained nuts to a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Grind into a batter, starting on low and working up to high.

Step 2.

Press into a silicone mold (I use a 1-cup Souper Cube) or an 8×8-inch baking pan. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes, then slice into bars.

Step 3.

Wrap in plastic wrap and store in a bag or store unwrapped bars in an airtight container. These are best if stored in the fridge rather than room temp.

Step 4.

Use roasted sunflower seeds instead of the nuts to make these a nut-free snack. You can skip the soaking step, or soak for just 5 minutes.
