Considering I have a fresh batch of banana chips in my possession, I am going to put them to good use by incorporating them into a popular store brand knock off. Hello Homemade Banana Bread Larabar.

This is not my first attempt at this, as I made the Cashew Cookie flavour awhile back and it turned out well. If you are so inclined you can make your own banana chips, but I do believe you can buy them at the Bulk Barn to skip that step.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD LARABAR

Homemade Larabar with ripe bananas and dates

I used equal parts of each ingredient which, amazingly, are only three!

That means one cup each of roasted almonds, chopped dates and the banana chips. Off they go into your food processor for a whirl.

It will take 2-3 minutes and you will know they are fully combined when a ball is formed.

Mine also starts to make a terrible noise but, that could just be because my food processor is a piece of sh*t. Sorry, but it’s both true and the proper term for this particular instance.

Carrying on!

Line a small loaf pan with parchment and press the mixture in. Cover it with some saran and pop into the freezer to set.

It takes about an hour to firm up, then it can be cut into bars, squares, or what I decided on, which was smaller chew sized bites for better portion control.

Who am I kidding? I went to town on these! So, I packed them up and shared them with those lucky ducks my co-workers.

If you have better self control than me these treats will keep in the fridge in an airtight container.

Enjoy!

    It taste exactly Larabar Banana Bread flavor! Only the color was bit lighter than the real one. I may add more dates next time. Anyway, thanks for the recipe for I don’t have to buy them again:)

  2. I made these and they were delicious. I love easy recipes. My kids loved them too so I didn’t have to worry about overindulging, they stopped me by eating so many themselves! I’m going to make more of these. I love how simple it is with the 3 ingredients.

  3. Yum! We love homemade larabars!
    Oh, and I laughed out loud when you were talking about your food processor because mine does the same thing and makes a really weird noise like it’s rattling apart when it comes together πŸ™‚

      1. We had to add a little bit of coconut oil to it so it would blend better but other than that they came out perfect! They’re in the freezer now so I can’t wait to try them.

        1. Awesome! Hope they were delish. Smart to add a bit more oil. Dates can vary in dryness and some might need a little help. πŸ™‚
