Homemade Larabars 

Coconut cream pie larabars involve blended cashews, almonds, dates, and coconut to create a homemade Larabar. Perfect for those following a raw and whole30 diet, these are a satisfying snack between meals or a sweet tooth fix. 

Are larabars whole30 approved

While larabars are full of wholesome ingredients and are naturally sweetened, not all of them are whole30 approved.

The following larabars are suitable for a whole30 diet. 

Larabar Ingredients

Larabars generally contain a range of dried fruits, nuts, spices and chocolate.

The most popular Larabar ingredients are cashews, almonds, cocoa powder, dates, and raisins. More specialty flavors use different nuts, seeds, and extracts.

  • Line an 8 x 8-inch pan or loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a high-speed blender or food processor, add your raw cashews and raw almonds and blend until a coarse texture remains- Do not over blend or you’ll be left with nut butter.
  • Add your pitted dates and blend until just combined. Add your unsweetened shredded coconut and continue blending, scraping down the sides at regular intervals. Once a thick dough remains, add your coconut oil and blend once more. 
  • Pour your batter into the lined pan and press firmly in place. Refrigerate until firm, before slicing into 12 bars. 


* You can omit the coconut oil completely. I kept it in because it added a smoother texture to the bars.
If the Larabar dough seems a little too wet, add some extra almonds or cashews. If the Larabar dough seems too dry, add a tablespoon or two of water.

  1. Hello! Do you think these would work without the almonds? Substituting pecans or pine nuts perhaps? I am annoyingly allergic to almonds…

  2. Good morning. I’ve tried making these 2x now and I am unable to get them to chewy. Mine seem to fall apart easily. Any suggestions on what I might do to do a better job at getting them to look like the photo?

  3. I used walnuts instead of cashews because I didn’t have any. They were delicious!!! I will definitely make these again.

  4. 5 stars
    Used walnuts for the cashews because that’s what I had on hand. My dates were def a little dry – added 2 TB water. Also added 2 tap drk cocoa powder. Yummy!
