Cherry Pie Larabar

Don’t you just love fresh, seasonal food? It is the BEST! When I recently came across the Improv Challenge on Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker, I knew I had to participate. Each month they pick a ingredient that is in season and everyone makes a recipe using that ingredient (or combination of ingredients). This month the challenge was to use almonds and cherries. Yummy! I decided homemade cherry pie larabar would be perfect! 

It only takes a few minutes to make them and there is no oven/stove required so it is just just right for this hot weather!

How to Make Cherry Almond Larabar

All you’ll need is dates, dried cherries and almonds. You might want to make sure you’ve got enough before you get started. I got out my crispy almonds and started making the bars and ended up having to individually pick out almonds from the pack of mixed nuts we had to get enough for the recipe. :)

Next, blend the dates and cherries until they are little pieces.

Add the nuts and blend until it is a crumbly mixture.

The best way to shape the bars (in my opinion) is to line a container with saran wrap and then firmly press the fruit and nut mixture into the pan. You can do one big pan and then cut it into bars or you could just use a personal sized container and make 1 bar at a time.

When you’re done shaping, carefully lift out the plastic and you’re all done!

Just store them in the fridge and you’ve got homemade treats all ready to go!
