Lara Bars

Jill Dalton
I absolutely love Lara Bars. They not only taste delicious but they are good for you and made with very simple ingredients. Some of them only contain 3 ingredients! I have recreated my own versions of them with an additional recipe that they don’t make yet. They don’t have the Fig Newton. I love plating these up in ball form to take to potlucks or holiday gatherings. You can also shape them into the traditional Lara Bar shape. Each recipe makes 12 ball or 6 bars.

  1. I love these so much! I made all of them except the fig bars. Excellent recipes! I keep them in the freezer so I can’t eat them all at once. I’ve shared them with family too. They’re a hit with everyone who has tried them. Thank you!!!

    1. Oh my goodness, you just made my day ?! I used dry figs. Thank you so much for sharing your story. It really does make me so happy that you are sharing this with your family.

  2. My entire family loves this so much!!! I keep them in the freezer, take them can to my mom in a retirement center and — hope you’ll love this — I am making them for my only grandchild for his very first birthday (instead of cake)!!!! So you’ve contributed to a family celebration. Thank you! … I have not made the fig ones yet because I don’t know whether I should use fresh figs or dried ones. I can’t tell in the video which you use. Please help. Thanks again. I’m a jill Dalton fan for sure! And, I share your site every chance I get.

    I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This article posted at this web site is genuinely good.

  4. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog!|

    1. Hi Patti, So sorry we had a technical problem on this post that was failing to load the recipe. It is fixed up now and ready for cooking!

    Love your videos, website, recipe and enthusiasm in teaching. Thanks for sharing everything. I’m going to get the ingredients for the fig ones tomorrow only I think I’ll use pecans instead of cashews. How does that sound?

  6. I just made both the coconut and pb ones. I didn’t have almonds so I used cashews. Wow – they are so delicious!!! Glad I made two batches…I don’t see them lasting long in this house. 🙂

  7. I just made the chocolate ones they are good. I used a cashew/walnut mix it did take awhile for the mixture to form so I added a little water about a tsp and some peanut butter a couple of pulses and it was all together. I can’t wait to try the others.
