Tastes Like Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar Recipe

Posted on September 7, 2010


The Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar is by far my favorite flavor.  My kids are pickier than I am with raw foods, but this one passes their tests, probably since this bar is like eating dessert!

We are going on a half-day field trip tomorrow, so I thought I would I try to come up with a similar taste for us to enjoy while out.  I picked up a couple of jars of peanuts since they are buy one get one free at Publix this week and already had raw pitted  dates.  This recipe is so simple.  Salt and water are the only other ingredients you will need.

Instead of making bars, I molded the sweet mix into a tassy (mini-muffin) pan, chilled in the fridge then popped them out with a butter knife.
