Recipe Directions

Puree the dates in the food processor until smooth. Add the pecans (and a dash of salt) until the consistency is right. It should be firm enough to ball up on its own, but it shouldn’t stick to your hands. Either roll into balls or press into a pan and cut into bars. You can also had other ingredients to taste, like cinnamon, or different nuts.

Quiora's Thoughts

By Quiora

I read the ingredients on a Lara Bar and they were “Dates, Pecans, Salt”. I thought, hmmm….I could do that. So I did, and it worked! Sorry there aren’t measurements. Just eyeball it to the right consistency.

When I made my raw cobbler the other day, the topping was exactly the same ingredients. Great minds think alike! :)

I've made these with dates, cacao, a little coconut oil, sea salt, vanilla, gojiberries and Barleens Greens. Sometimes I roll them in coconut. RawDance--you'll be doing a serious cacao dance after those. Not advised before bedtime. These in any version just make a great yummy!

That sounds fantastic! I think they'd be great with walnuts. I will have to try hemp sometime too. I've actually never had it. With the bananas you might want to only make what you can eat right away though. Otherwise they might get kind of brown and slimy. I'm not really sure how the actually banana lara bars stay in tact now that I think about it. Maybe they're dehydrated slightly?

Dates are my favorite... big, plump, juicy Medjools. They are the perfect solution to sugar cravings (for me atleast). I use to buy the banana Lara bars... I eat raw protein bars at times to get extra kcals in without having to down a big meal that my stomach can't fit. You've encouraged me to make some of my own bars! I think I might do a banana, walnut, date, hemp, whatever else I am feeling creative with at the moment, bar... mmmm

They were really good, and taste exactly like Pecan Pie Lara Bars! Unfortunately, I got sick later that night (not from these I don't think. I think it is Detox.) and now I can't eat anything with lots of dates without feeling sick. :( My boyfriend gobbled the rest up though!
