Almost Lara Bars(Chocolate Banana)

Posted on 03/06/12 3 Comments

These are adapted to my taste from beyondthepeel a recipe my darling cousin sent me today. They are rich with healthful deliciousness! An easy and versatile recipe that I can see experimenting with further in the future.

Combine in Food Processor:

1 c. prunes (pressed full)

1/4 c. peanut butter (fresh roasted if you roll like that)

4 Tbsp Agave Nectar (or natural honey

) 1 ripe as hell Banana (I used a frozen one)

Whip it good;) Add and process until smooth

: 1/4c. Coconut flour

(1/3c. coconut flakes in a bullet with do nicely)

1/2 c. Cashew Flour (or any nut really. Again whole nuts in a bullet are nice and fresh)

3 Tbsp Ground Chia or Flax seeds

3 Tbsp. Fair Trade Cocoa (Say no to child Slavery.. right?)

Turn the mix out into a 8 X 8 pan and press flat. Bake @ 325 for 20 min. (Or to remain raw, add more coconut flour or hemp seed flour until the consistency pleases you;))

Take them out and allow to cool… I have trouble waiting for things to cool… so I know that they are delicious right away;)

Melt 100 g of dark fair trade chocolate and pour over top.

Allow to set. MMMMM Package-free lara bar type snacks at your finger tips;)

My honey will be pleased to find these in his lunch tomorrow.

Thank you Jolene;)

    Yum. Chocolate peanut butter is my favorite dessert flavor. Even better if it’s in my snack!

    These sound really good, and I like your sub of peanut butter for coconut oil. I’m going to add the recipe to my list of gf treats to try.
