Lilla’s Notes: Currently I am doing The Daniel Fast with my sister, Ashley. On this fast I cannot eat any sugar–at all–whatsoever. I was craving something a little sweet and these homemade peanut butter cookie larabars really hit the spot! I’ve made these twice already. Wells loves helping me push the buttons on the food processor. I bought organic dates from the Whole Foods bulk bin–$3.00 cheaper per pound than buying the organic ones in the fridge section. Also, the ones I bought were already pitted! I used unsalted roasted peanuts from Trader Joes. The first time I made thin bars–I was trying to make them a good deal smaller than an actual Larabar. The second time I rolled them into little balls…well, more like mashed them into balls. Tip: I love these cold! So, I keep them in the refrigerator. Kid friendly–Wells loves them too. He calls them his peanut butter cookie balls! I upped the nut amount a tad to make them a little less sweet…I was craving something savory too! One last note…I made these once with raw peanuts. I had to toss those and try again. The consistency and taste were not even close to the ones I made with the roasted and unsalted peanuts. Although I typically love raw nuts, skip the raw peanuts for this recipe…you’ll be glad you did!

        I found the green drink recipe but no others. I would like to be able to check out your other recipes. Tried the link at the top but no recipe found.

        So inspiring to shop & eat healthy!

          Hi Joan,
          I’m sorry you’re having trouble viewing the other recipes. If you are viewing my site on a mobile phone it looks a little different. Go to the individual tabs in the drop down, like ‘desserts or salads’ you will find the recipes there. You can also follow me on pinterest-the link is on the bottom of all of the pages on my site. All of my recipes are also posted there. I haven’t added recipes to every category yet…since I’m just getting started. But I will be adding more very often. In fact, I’m cooking one right now that I will be adding soon. Please let me know if this helps you! Thanks for checking out my blog! 🙂 Lilla

    Hi Lilla,
    Under “recipes->dessert->you end up with a link back to this post rather than a link to the recipe. I saw on a few posts that the recipe was at the bottom of the post, but didn’t see it on this one. Thanks!

      I’m sorry–that is confusing. My first recipes, when I was just getting started, are links to recipes on other blogs. If you click on the picture it will take you to the actual recipe (on another site). All of the ones that are my original recipes will be posted at the bottom! I’m glad you are doing well! Thanks for supporting my blog!
