I love Larabars as much as the next person but when I saw this: http://www.dietdessertndogs.com/2008/05/27/flash-in-the-pan-cocoa-nibbles-or-la-raw-bar/, I was pretty excited since I'm all about making things myself. Below is my variation of the La "Raw" Bar.
2 T ground flaxseed
1/4 cup + 2 T ground raw cashews
1 cup chopped dates
1/2 T extra virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 T raw cacao powder
Dash of vanilla
Just follow the directions on the link and enjoy! I've found that cashews make a better tasting bar than the almonds but a mix of the two are good as well. Also, I added the extra virgin coconut oil and flaxseed for the added health benefits and flavor. On a side note, there are new flavors of Larabars coming out and I can't wait!
