Here it is - my recipe for Strawberry Pie "Lara-ish" Bars

  • 1 cup dried strawberries
  • ½ cup Medjool dates (pitted)
  • ¼ cup dried blueberries
  • 1 cup raw almonds


  1. In a food processor (use the "S" blade), combine the strawberries, dates, and blueberries until it forms a sticky dough. - This can take up to 3-4 minutes, depending on how powerful your food processor is.
  2. Add in the almonds and process again until the almonds are broken down and the mixture looks uniform. It may look crumbly but it should stick together when you pich it with your fingers.
  3. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper, turn the mixture onto it, and press it into a flat rectangle (about ½-¾" in thickness). You can use a rolling pin but I just use my hands.
  4. Put the sheet into the fridge for about 20 minutes to let it set.
  5. After 20 minutes, slice them into 8 equal size bars. Wrap them individually in parchment paper or plastic wrap and keep in the fridge. But they'll easily last a few days at room temperature, making them great to toss in your pack.
