Turd Nuggets You Can Eat? DIY Lara Bars If It Suits You Better….

Since I am now Paleo for health concerns and Lovey Levin is done his Gluten Challenge, I wanted to find a snack everyone could eat and enjoy…. Boy did I find it and modified it, of course!!

Lovey has named them Turd Nuggets, but they are essentially DIY Lara Bars.

13671_10153170280780505_6702064033195447429_nIngredients – ONLY 4!!!

  • 1/3 C of dates (that’s a chopped measurement, so I use 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 C of craisins (raisins would work too!)
  • 1/4 C of cashews (I usually use raw organic but I just ran out)
  • 1/8 – 1/4 C of Enjoy Life chocolate (whatever you have on hand)

To make these is incredibly easy!! 10647066_10153170280550505_4335395912822907967_n

  1. Toss the measured amount of Dates and Craisins into your food processor. I use my nutribullet with the regular shake blade (not the milling blade).  Scoop into a bowl after everything is fully processed.
  2. Now toss in your chips and nuts! Do the same thing!
  3. Knead the two items together until it looks like a gigantic TURD (true story)!!17199_10153170277840505_7703813302729237871_n
  4. Pinch off a small bit and now roll into balls.

Enjoy!!
