Homemade Lara bars

I’ve been eating lara bars so much that I decided to make my own. There are endless flavor possibilities! I used these basic instructions. I started with dates, hazelnuts (from Bernard’s Farm), and almonds for the nut/dried fruit base then added cinnamon, cardamom, cocoa powder, chia seeds, sesame seeds, and flax meal. You basically just pulse the ingredients in the food processor then roll it out and cut bars (or whatever shape you prefer). For me, it was a great excuse to use my dog-shaped cookie cutters. They were delicious and I will definitely be trying out new nut/fruit/spice combinations soon.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
