Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Lara Bars

Welcome to another Tasty Tuesday! This week’s recipe is great to have around the house for a healthy, low-sugar snack. Not sure about you, but the snacking level has gone way up in our house lately!

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP LARA BARS

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates, packed
1 cup roasted peanuts, unsalted
1/2 cup raw cashews
pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions:
1. In a food processor blend dates, peanuts, cashews, and salt until nuts are broken into tiny pieces and the dough sticks together when pressed.
2. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in chocolate chips.
3. Place dough in between two pieces of parchment paper and roll smooth to about 1/2 inch thick, straightening the sides as you roll to form approximately a 8×8 square.
4. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Cut into 12 equal bars. 5. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
