Homdemade LaraBars Recipe "Almond Butter Brownie"

Last night I made the most yummy LaraBars, since they were such a great hit and I'll be making them again I have decided to name them. So hence forth they shall be called KoHo Bars.

When I was looking at making my KoHo Bars I was amazed at how easy and healthy they are. Even the real deal, LaraBars, only have a handful of ingredients at most. So when making my KoHo Bars I wanted to keep it simple as well.

I headed out to the local bulk health food store and picked up the simple ingredients that I would need to make my Almond Butter Brownie KoHo Bar.

1 tbs Almond Butter
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 cup Walnuts
1 1/3 cups Dates
1 tbs Ground flax seed
A handful of chocolate chips

So you take all of the ingredients and toss them into your food processor and let that blend for a couple minutes or until everything is nicely chopped and turned into a dough. 'Once it's all mixed up take a handful of dough and form it into bars. You then can wrap them up and place them in the fridge to harden or eat the Yummy Almond Butter Brownie now ;)



  1. Conveniently, I have all of those ingredients in my kitchen - right now! We just got back from the local raw food store and bought raw almond butter. I'm thinking I'll modify it as well - replacing the ground flax with soaked chia seeds (they're my thing lately - I put them in everything, including watermelon/kale smoothies). I may add some cacao powder as well (is there such things as too chocolatey?).

    Thanks for posting this!

  2. Everyone in the house loved them! So I made them again last night - this time with almonds, peanut butter, cacao powder, and dried cranberries, and no chocolate chips (we ran out). What a great recipe idea! Thanks again.

  3. I'm so excited to hear your family enjoyed them, let me know if you make some new kinds, your more then welcome to guest blog about your next attempt, thanks

  4. What is the proper ratio again of dates to the other ingredients to get a dough that sticks together? 1 1/3 cup dates to about 2 cups of the dry ingredients? Thanks!
