If you like Lara bars: 

Home-made Lara Bars

Measure the Ingredients

You’ll need:

10 dried dates, pitted (often found in the produce section)
One cup raw almonds
1/4 cup raisins
A food processor

Mixing the Ingredients

Pour the pitted dates, raw almonds, and raisins into the food processor. Secure the lid.

Process ingredients for about two minutes, or until they are chopped and mixed thoroughly. The fruit should appear smooth, yet you’ll still be able to see bits of nuts. The mixture will look like firm cookie dough.

Form One Large Bar

Tear off a 12 in. x 18 in. piece of plastic wrap and lay it flat on a counter or cutting board. Place the fruit and nut mixture in the center of the plastic wrap. Pull up the plastic on either side and begin to press it together to form one large bar, keeping the layer of plastic between your hands and the dough to prevent sticking. Squeeze the mixture firmly together — if it’s loose, it’ll fall apart when you try to eat it. You’ll end up with a quarter-inch thick bar that’s about 3 1/2 in. x 7 1/2 in.

Wrap the large bar tightly in the plastic. Place the bar flat in the freezer for an hour to harden slightly, which will make it easier to cut into bars.

Cut Into Individual Bars

Remove the large bar from the freezer, unwrap it, and place on cutting board. Divide bar in half, and then cut each half into thirds, creating six bars total.
