Almond & Coconut Lara Bar

Lara Bar is actually just a cooler word for granola bar. But the thing about Lara Bars, is that it is actually just bliss balls in a bar shape. So if you’re looking for a super simple, and super easy granola bar, you’re at the right place!

For the Lara Bars, it’s good to have a little crunch. To make sure the almonds and coconut don’t turn into a meal, I started of blending them, removing them from the food processor blending the dates, and then I added the coconut and almond mixture when the dates were all blended and sticky. Blend a bit again to mix everything together. After this you can add the cacao nibs and pulse for a few seconds only.

– INGREDIENTS –

makes 4 bigger, or 8 smaller bars

1/2 / 1 dl almonds

1/2 cup / 1 dl coconut, dessicated

2/3 cup / 2 dl dates, unpitted

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

1/4 cup / 1/2 dl cacao nibs

– DIRECTIONS –

  1. Places almonds and coconut in a food processor. Blend until it’s like a very chunky meal.
  2. Place the meal in a separate bowl and set aside. Places dates in food processor, pulse until as smooth as possible.
  3. Add the meal you set aside to the date mixture. Blend again, until the everything is well combined.
  4. Add cacao nibs to the mixture and blend again, for a few seconds only. You don’t want the cacao nibs to be all chopped up!
  5. Roll out mixture on a cutting board. Use your hands to make a large square. Cut the larger square into smaller parts. (I cut 4 pieces, but I later cut those pieces into halves).
  6. Cool for 20-30 mins in fridge. Store in airtight container. Enjoy!
