I am wondering if anyone else eats them. I love them and know they are all natural. So i wanted to see how others feel.

I'm a big fan of them... the only thing is they are not zone balaced. Throw in some beef jerky and a few nuts, though, and you've got yourself a good snack in my opinion.

Love the things. Eat 'em quite frequently after a salad+protein.

Also, in a pinch I'll eat them without protein.

Me too! Although I tend to restrict myself to those without cashews since I find they dont fit too well w/ paleo type eating! Also need protein with it--fats are there! I try for a half but often just indulge. And now my Costco sells them too!

Absolutely! They are a great bar. I like to do a comparison and take any other sports/energy/ diet etc bar and read the ingredients. Then read them for the Lara bar. They are less than 5 ingredients and they are all like: almonds, walnuts, dates, cinnamon. Not processed, no artificial nothing.
I like to make my own now.

Erin - do you have a recipe for making your own? I have tried a few things, but nothing is quite it. Thanks!

Yeah, it'd be great if someone had a zone-balanced home recipe. I've never seen these bars in Toronto!

If you have a recipe, woudl you be willing to post it? I'd love to try it. The CF Santa Cruz site had a Zone friendly engergy bar recipe up a few months ago, but it's gone now and I am not finding it within their site. Did anyone out there happen to catch it?

Sure! It's easy and you can get creative with it.
The basic recipe is (all nuts are raw)
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews
10 dates

Put nuts in a food processor and process until small crumbles. Add dates one at a time. When dough forms, you can shape into bars, balls, whatever. If dates are small, might need to add a few more.
You can change up the nuts, switch with others you like better, add spices (I like cinnamon in mine), add raisins or dried cranberries, or dried apricots, maybe even some organic cocoa powder. Whatever suits you.
I also have a recipe for Coco Banana Nuts Bars (has oats) if anyone is interested.
