homemade larabar recipe and site reccomendation

made these today:

VERY good! so VERY pleased to have something good for the kids’ lunches, all natural fruit sugars, nuts and grains. If I get the chance, next time I will add some protein powder as well.

  • 1/2 cup raisins (80g)
  • 6 T quick oats (30g)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (40g)
  • 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pulverize the oats in a food processor, then add all other ingredients and blend very well. Form into balls or bars. (If you want, you can portion the dough into plastic bags before smushing the bars, so your hands don’t get sticky.)

**I used 1/3 cup walnuts and the 2/3 cups pumpkin seeds, as that’s what I had on hand. SUPER forgiving recipe. Just keep processing until the consistency becomes sticky.
