Laura Bars

If you have never eaten a Lara Bar you don't know what you are missing! They are essentially very healthy whole food energy bars. So far my favorite flavor I have tried is the cherry pie bar. The only problem with these bars is that they are $1.00 or more a piece. The ingredients are simple and usually less than 5 things. I searched for a recipe and found a great blog called "Enlightened Cooking" with a great tutorial. Click on the word tutorial to go to the link and scroll down for recipes.
 I made cherry pie, apricot almond, and cashew cookie bars. It didn't take long at all and the results are really good. The cherry pie turned out the best for consistency.
 Basic ingredients of dried fruit and nuts, that's all!
