If you’ve heard of the Larabar and like them—try the DIY Sarahbar!
Who doesn’t like a little sweet treat? How about something easy to make and something you KNOW is NOT full of fillers and crapola! Natural sugars! Natural whole ingredients!

*This is a rough estimate of measurements as I blended about 5 Figs and a little more than 1 cup of pitted dates to make these three types of bars (or you can just use dates alone as paste).

Peanut Butter Bar:
Peanuts , Dates & Figs

Blend ¼ cup of chopped dates & figs into a paste.
Blend Peanuts until into pieces and some powder (measuring about 1/3 cup blended).
Mix everything all together and shape into bars (I used a silicon mini ice cube tray for bite size bars)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar:
Peanuts , Dates, Figs & Carob Powder

Blend ¼ cup of chopped dates & figs into a paste.
Mix in Carob Powder with dates (or cocoa powder) (about a tsp).
Blend Peanuts until into pieces and some powder (measuring about 1/3 cup blended).
Mix everything all together and shape into bars

Coconut Bar:
Dates, Figs , Coconut, Coconut Oil, Cashews, & Almonds

Blend ¼ cup of chopped dates & figs into a paste.
Mix in Coconut Oil with dates (about a tsp).
Blend Almonds & Cashews until into pieces and some powder (measuring about 1/3 cup blended)
Mix 1/4 cup of shredded coconut (or more depending on desired taste).
Mix everything all together and shape into bars

*Other variations I’ve made:

Cinnamon Walnut (used walnuts as nuts and added tsp of Cinnamon)
Cranberry Cashew (used cashews as nuts and added dried cranberries)

Add more of one thing or less of another-depends on your personal taste preference! 🙂 Yum!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
