Homemade Luna Bars

Warning: These are addicting!

Original Recipe is from Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity
Make sure to check out her recipe, which includes cocoa and is rolled in coconut! Both my girls and I actually preferred these w/out the cocoa, despite all being chocolate addicts ;) But it's still worth a try to include it :)

  • 15 dates
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1.5 cups raw almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla
  1. Put all ingredients in a Vitamix blender (or food processor) and pulse until it combines.
  2. Continue processing while pushing down with the Vitamix stir stick thing (I'm all technical here ;) until it forms a nice dark colored chewy textured ball.
  3. Remove from blender and roll into small balls (about 1/2 in diameter or so).
  4. I put these in a glass container and keep them in the fridge. A batch rarely lasts more than 1/2 a week!
