    The Cashew Cookie is my favorite.

    I rarely see them as low as $1, but I stock up when they're that cheap!

      It's expensive compared to buying in bulk and making your own.

        I make them a lot. Just throw the dates into a food processor and process until you get a big ball. Add whatever goodies you like (in the food processor or transfer to a bowl and mix by hand, great workout!), then spread it out on an 8 x 8 pan (use parchment paper to avoid sticking, bottom and top) and press to compact. Easy peasy!

        Also, if you have a Grocery Outlet in your area, you can find a box of 16 for $5.99, quite the deal! Do watch out for the Uber Lara bars if you are grain free (brown rice syrup), though as a once in a blue moon quick snack they are pretty good.

          I wouldn't care if it costs more to make them yourself. I find most of the Lara bars have a strange taste to them. They taste more like sour raisins to me than dates.

          I have found imported pressed dates at an Asian market. It's probably possible to find something similar elsewhere. It's basically dates already smooshed up into a block. You could probably use those date things with the coconut on them as a base, too. I've used this stuff to make bars by hand since I don't have a food processor (yet).

            Lara bars are available at Costco - at least the stores in Calgary - not sure the price as I don't buy them often but IIRC it works out to 0.50 per bar. The only thing is it is a box with only 3 standard flavours.

              OK, did anyone else come to this thread because they thought the title was "homemade larvabars" and wondered how you sweeten larva?

                With coconut sugar of course

                Hmm i wonder if i could get dried larva... Hubby would never have to know what added that extra crunch....

                Made the first batch tonight, dates, cinnamon, coconut and pecans.... Came out pretty tasty

                    Partly I'm asking, cause it's cicada year here in the NE USA, and every time I move a rock in the garden, all those critters are just sitting there, waiting to hatch. On the other side, what kinda meal would adult cicadas make?

                        One that is high in roughage, no doubt.
