Clean Eating Cherry Pecan Lara Bars
(Makes 4 bars)
1/2 cup date – pitted
1/2 cup dried cherries – no sugar added
1 cup pecans
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Step 1 – Place all ingredients in the processor, and blend until it becomes a ball like the one above.
Step 2 – Place on plastic wrap on a flat work surface.
Step 3 – Wrap plastic around the “dough”.
Step 4 – Roll and shape.
Step 5 – At this point, you can place the whole thing in the fridge for 24 hours. But I recommend the freezer. The dough is very sticky and soft, so a few hours in the freezer would do it some good.
You could also put a few extra nuts in the processor and roll your bars in the nuts as a last step to avoid getting your fingers sticky when you pick it up.
But ultimately, that’s it! And man, are they G.O.O.D.!
Eat and Enjoy!
If you have little ones, here’s how they can help (With close supervision, of course).
Let the little ones put the ingredients into the processor, and once the lid is secure, let them turn on the processor and watch it go! They can help roll the bars as well.
