Do you buy packaged bars because they have few ingredients and are healthy? What If I told you that it’s really easy to make them yourself?
There are so many choices out there when it comes to snack bars. In a pinch, I’ll often grab a box of Z Bars or Lara Bars, to add to lunches or pack in soccer bags for a post-practice treat.
What I’ve found though, is that making a homemade version of Lara Bars really couldn’t be easier. And the bonus? My kids love them even more because they can help make them. The ingredient list is as short and sweet and the time it takes to make them.
This recipe allows for all kinds of room for experimenting with new flavors. Swap out the peanuts and peanut butter for almonds and almond butter. Add in dried fruit instead of chocolate chips. Maybe a dash of cinnamon to celebrate the flavors of fall?
There are so many combinations to try, you could make a new flavor every week! These add the perfect extra nutritional boost to a MOMables lunch if you have an older child or an athlete. Thanks to the Wannabe Chef you can make these at home.Print
