How long do larabars last?
They will last covered in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. They will be safe in the fridge for longer, they will just start to dry out after 7 days.
Are larabars cooked?
Nope! Larabars are a classic no bake energy bar recipe. Once all the ingredients are blended, all you have to do is cover and chill them!
What are the ingredients in larabars?
The basic Larabars ingredients are nuts, dates, and (sometimes) dried fruit. Typically, cashews are used but I'm sensitive to cashews so I often substitute in peanuts. For obvious reason, this recipe uses peanuts.
Homemade Larabar Recipe Cooking Notes:
- Wrap them up individually as soon as they’ve chilled so you can just grab and go on a busy morning or when you know you’ll want an afternoon snack.
- Also, feel free to sub in all raisins if you don’t have dates, but the dates do add a nice jamminess, reminiscent of the real deal.
Either way, enjoy these gems with a clear conscience, embracing the flavors of youth while eating clean and with no added sugar.
