    JRM #2's Note:

    I created this recipe by experimenting first with the Copy Cat Lara Bar found here at Recipezaar by vigilant20 #347784, but the ratio of 1 cup dates to 3 cups nuts didn't hold together for me. This recipe will be divided in half in order to make two differently flavored bars! I have listed "Cherry Coconut" and "Oatmeal Cookie Dough". I like to have texture in my Lara Bars, and if you do too, make sure you don't put ALL the nuts into your food processor at the same time!

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Equipment: Food processor or blender, cutting board and chopping knife, 2 medium sized bowls, measuring cup and spoons, waxed paper or parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Soak nuts for two to three hours.
    3. 3
      Put 1 cup of dates, 1 cup of cashews and 1 cup of walnuts into a bowl and mix them together.
    4. 4
      Chop and grind them in your food processor in batches. Get the mixture to a meal like consistency and return to bowl.
    5. 5
      On your cutting board coarsely chop the remaining nuts and add to the bowl.

      In the food processor, grind your remaining one cup of pitted dates to a paste; add to the bowl.
    7. 7
      Add flax and hemp seeds to bowl with nuts and dates and mix together well.
    8. 8
      Divide Date/ Nut mixture equally into two bowls.
    9. 9
      Into one bowl mix your shredded coconut and dried cherries. If you are using un-sweetened coconut, you may want to add some maple syrup or agave nectar, one tablespoon at a time, to your taste.
    10. 10
      Add the remaining three ingredients to the other bowl and mix well.
    11. 11
      Turn each mixture out onto a longish piece of waxed paper and form into a long rectangle about four inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.
    12. 12
      Wrap up in the waxed paper and refrigerate four a couple of hours before cutting off your first bar.
