Like many other families, we love the flavors of Larabars but find the price tag of $1.50 per 1.8oz bar to be too high, so I decided to try making homemade Cherry Pie Larabars. There are lots of recipes out there on the internet for homemade versions of these popular snacks and they are all super simple. I studied a handful of recipes and decided to wing it with the ingredients available in my pantry. I happened to have dried cherries, dates and walnuts so my flavor choice was clear – Cherry Pie! I buy dates, nuts and dried fruits at Costco so my cost per bar is dramatically lower than the store bought bars and my children LOVED my homemade version. This recipe is amazingly simple and infinitely variable according to what dried fruits and nuts you have on hand. I read the ingredient lists for all of the Larabar flavors on their website and I feel confident that I can re-create just about any of their flavors now that I have seen for myself how easy the process is.
