Homemade Lara Bars
¾ cup cashews (or nuts of choice)
¼ cup walnuts
5 pitted Medjool dates
Dash of cinnamon
Zest of 1 lemon
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Handful of goji berries, golden berries, or dried blueberries (optional)
Process the nuts in a food processor until you reach fine consistency.
Add the remaining ingredients (except the berries). Pulse until combined.
Add the berries in for some color and extra nutritional punch!
Mold into squares or balls, and place in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours. You can also spread the mixture in a pan or roll out between two pieces of parchment, chill well, then cut into bars.
Savory and Sweet Crackers
SERVES: about 20 crackers
1 cup blanched almond flour
½ tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons cold water
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons raisins
3 teaspoons raw sunflower seeds
1 sprig rosemary
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place all of the ingredients, except for 1 teaspoon of sunflower seeds, in a food processor and grind until combined thoroughly.
Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of sunflower seeds, and pulse once until they are roughly chopped. You should have a fairly lumpy dough where you can see bits of raisins and sunflower seeds.
Remove the dough and form it into a ball with your hands.
Place the ball between two sheets of parchment paper, then roll the dough to a ⅛ inch thickness with a rolling pin.
Remove the top sheet of parchment. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into one large square, then into smaller squares. Save the scraps and re-roll it to get more crackers.
Carefully transfer the parchment piece to a cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the pan once, until golden.
Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then carefully break the crackers apart.
Alternatively, dehydrate on a low setting for 24 hours. Flip the crackers over half way through.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of weeks. These probably won’t last that long in your house though!
