Banana Chocolate Chip Lara Bars (Nut Free)

Banana Chocolate Chip Lara Bars  (Nut Free)  I love Lara bars ! I always have been addicted to them and feel the pain in my pocket after I buy five different flavors. I realized today when I went to purchase a few that I have tried every flavor they have to offer. Pt got me to thinking that maybe I could create a new flavor of my own.  I deiced on banana because I had a craving for banana and chocolate chips and I would have use almonds but  I did not have any so I used the next best thing..

    Do you have a recommendation where to buy dried fruit that has not been manufactured/processed with any peanuts or tree nuts?

      I would suggest a dehydrator.. I really don’t know to many companies that make dried fruit in nut free facilities.. If I find a couple I will let you know… :)
