No need to spend $2 a pop on store-bought snacks when you can easily make copycat Larabars at home
There was a full year when I pretty much lived off of Larabars. It was right when I started to clean up my diet and eat healthier about six years ago, and my go-to snack was always a Larabar. Made with really simple ingredients (all of which I could pronounce), they were a great option for long workdays on the road when hunger struck.
That said, it was an expensive habit to keep up. When I finally got a legitimate food processor a year or so later, I decided making my own was much more economical. A few healthy ingredients (nuts, dates, spice and fruit of choice), a minute or so whizzing around in the food processor, and that's essentially all you need to make your own.
Since it's apple season, their apple pie flavor seems the most relevant, but feel free to switch out the fruit (just use any other dried or freeze-dried fruit), and change the spices accordingly for whatever flavor you want. Add some chocolate chips if you're feeling crazy, and even play around with a flavor combination you wish they sold but don't. They're really the simplest snack out there and one you can feel good about eating.
