Make Your Own Peanut Butter Cookie LÄRABAR
Since going gluten-free, soy-free, and moving towards sugar-free my food choices have become pretty limited and basic. Well, limited in the processed food sense. One of my favorite snacks right now are LÄRABARs, especially the Peanut Butter Cookie flavor, however they can add up in price and packaging. So I decided to try making them myself since the ingredients are just dates, peanuts, and salt.
I took a handful of salted organic peanuts and 2 pitted organic dates, and blended them for about 20 seconds. The taste and texture was very similar to a LÄRABAR - how easy! The peanuts had a little too much salt, so next time I'll try with unsalted peanuts and add my own salt (it's good with no salt at all too!).
