Yoga+Music {notquite365} – I Am To Blame by The Maroons – Recipe Edition!

It’s Tuesday and that means the Recipe Edition!


Ok, so it’s not Tuesday. I’ll spare you the grim details, but there wasn’t a lot of thinking about food yesterday.

The good news is I’m feeling so much better today, I just made some homemade Lara Bars!

Why make something I can easily buy at the co-op? Good question!

They are kind of expensive and as it turns out, really easy to make. So why not?

Today’s recipe is from Wellsphere with directions from OhSheGlows.


1/3 cup roughly chopped dates

1/2 cup raw cashews

1 Tablespoon semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pinch of cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract


Follow the instructions in this post from Oh She Glows.

How easy is that?
