Lower Fat Snack Bar
I love larabars, but don’t like eating all that fat, I’d rather save it for something else! So, I experimented until I came up with something I liked. This can easily be changed up to create different flavors. Of course, you can add nuts if you like. The inspiration came from the delicious Raisin Fudge recipe posted here a few days ago.
3 dried figs
.3 cup raisins
1 teaspoon each: maca, lucuma, mesquite
1 tablespoon cocoa
2 pinch cinnamon
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1. Blend all ingredients, in the food processor until it forms a ball. It will take a few minutes. If it is too dry and looks like fine crumbs add water, a tiny bit at a time. Taste and adjust seasonings.
2. You can shape them by hand, but it’ll be sticky. I use a mini loaf pan, a muffin tin would make a nice round “bar”. If using a form, grease it with any mild flavored oil.
3. Freeze and then if using the mini loaf pan, remove it and slice it in half to create two bars. Bars can be stored in the fridge.
