Learn about Laraballs!

These are yummy homemade, no-bake cookies are similar to the awesome product called Larabars!

Super-NUTRITIOUS snacks: filled with fiber, protein, healthy fat, high-energy carbohydrate source, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals!

Most recipes contain NO sugar!

The only times there is sugar are in recipes with dried fruit that you cannot find unsweetened, such as is the case sometimes with cherries and cranberries. In Laraball recipes, these berries are combined with another unsweetened dried fruit to minimize the amount of sugar. Sweetening of these berries is COMPLETELY unnecessary in these recipes -- but it's difficult to find some dried fruits unsweetened -- BOO WHO!  Please TELL ME if and where you find some!

No butter or oil.


Always Gluten-FREE!

Most recipes make 12-16 one-inch Laraballs, or you can shape them however you like!

Nutrition information: each Laraball has on average 40-50 calories, 1-2g protein, 2g HEALTHY fat, and 4-5g carbs, including 1-2g fiber.

If you prefer CRUNCHY to chewy, try baking your favorite flavor. Just add 1/2 c rolled oats to the recipe. Bake at 375 degrees, 15-20 min. The longer you bake them, the crunchier they'll get!

Here are some tasty favors:
