Homemade Raisin Cherry Almond LaraBar

Note: If you love lara bars, you will love these. They taste better homemade because you can customize them to your liking by adding different types of dried fruits and nuts. I started off with wanting to make a Cherry Almond bar, but it didn't stick enough alone, so I added the raisins. This was one delicious bar! These bars are great and they are more cost effective than lara bars. These bars are also great because, unlike many other fruit and nut bars on the market, these have no added sugars, but are naturally sweet from the sugar in the fruits.

- 1/8 cup dried cherries
- 1/8 cup raisins
- 1 oz almonds

Directions: blend the raisins and cherries in blender. Pop in bowl. Process almonds after (separately) and mix those with the raisins thoroughly so that they make one big clump. Mold into a bar form.
