I am a huge LaraBar fan and have a stash of them at home, in my purse, and in my car. I absolutely love the ingredient list and think they’re great snacks for me and the kids. They’re also great for a healthy, sweet, treat after dinner, especially the ones with chocolate!

Most of the time a great ingredient list equals a big price tag, but LaraBars go on sale for $1/each at my local grocery store pretty often. They definitely aren’t the highest priced healthy snack bars on the market, but making them yourself saves even more money!

My favorites LaraBar flavors are Blueberry muffin, Chocolate chip cookie dough, Coconut Chocolate Chip, and you guessed it, Banana Bread!

I bought a Costco sized pack of dates, had aging bananas, and a half eaten bag of almonds laying around and that is all you need to make these delicious snack bars! I added some dairy-free chocolate chips too because chocolate, but that’s an option you can leave out.

Making these bars made me really wish I had a dehydrator, but right now they’re just another kitchen gadget my husband prays I don’t purchase. 😉

Check out these ugly little beautiful dehydrated banana chips!


After making these and finding out how simple and easy they are, I’m off to make more with different flavors! Apples and peaches up next! Actually I need to make some homemade RXBARs…have you seen the price of those?!
