Homemade Larabars

At two dollars each, Im going broke! Larabars are just so delicious, that I thought it was worth it. But now Im making my own!

I subbed in apricots and raisins for the dates because thats what I had on hand. The apricots made them a bit dry and they werent sticking together so I tossed in a bit of Trader Joes peanut flour mixed with a sprinkle of water and it did the trick. In the end, they came out wonderful.

Apricot Cashew Coconut Bar

1/3c. apricots
1/4c. raisins
2T cashews
1/2c. toasted coconut flakes
1/2T TJ's peanut flour mixed with 2t water
pinch of salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor (I used my mini food chopper) and process until its crumbly and starting to stick together.
Form into three or four bars or cookie shapes and put in the fridge or freezer.

Hey Veriity! These bars look great! my husband loves dry fruits and snacks on them all the time. I should make these instead.

Thanks! I have made them with dates rather than apricots and I like them alot better. (I just didnt happen to have any yesterday). You dont need to add the peanut flour mixture with the dates either because they stick together much better than the apricots and raisins. I hope you and your husband like them!
