If you like having healthy snacks on hand at all times, these are the easiest fruit and nut bars out there! Like I said, you only need 3 ingredients and about 5 mins to prepare these! I made mine in the blender, but a food processor would work great as well.  I have always loved Larabars, but I have to be honest when I say that homemade Larabars are even better!  Why have I not been making these all along!?

    I recommend adding a little sea salt to these. I swear, it makes them sweeter! I’m hungry now. Thanks 🙂

      You are too funny! Great suggestion, and I’m so sorry for the delayed response. This comment was hanging out in my SPAM folder. How dare my blog think you are spammy, Jen!! P.S. I’m hungry now too.

    How many bars does this make

    • Reply Bre November 19, 2015 at 8:30 am

      Also do you know the calories in each bar?

      • Reply Krista November 19, 2015 at 11:53 am

        Hi Bre,

        This recipe easily makes 12 good sized bars at 193 calories each. Thanks for stopping by our site! Enjoy the bars!

    I bought raw cashews on accident….do you think that is going to make a difference?

    • Reply Krista November 24, 2015 at 12:57 pm

      Raw should work just fine! I would add just a little bit of sea salt but not a must. 🙂

  • Reply April January 12, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Have you ever made these with raw mixed nuts? I think my jar has cashews, walnuts, pistachios, almonds and hazelnuts.

    • Reply Krista January 13, 2016 at 1:00 pm

      I haven’t but a lot of larabars are made with different nuts so they might be good. Let me know if they are!

  • Reply Kathy March 6, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    I used almonds and added a little homemade vanilla extract as well. I made mine in to little snack balls and they turned out great. Will be using this recipe a lot. It only took me about 15 minutes start to finish!!! ?

  • Reply Maggie April 1, 2016 at 7:23 am

    These are amazing! My kids chowed them. Great alternative to processed bars as we head out the door. Had to make another batch 2 days later!

  • Reply Chris April 8, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Why do they need to be refrigerated? I’d love to take these backpacking!

    • Reply Krista April 8, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      I’m sure they would be fine a day or two. I refrigerate them because the package of dates says to refrigerate after opening. I know they last me well over 4 weeks in the fridge but I’m not sure about outside the fridge.

  • Reply darc October 5, 2016 at 9:19 am

    Are these Whole30 compliant? I wonder because of the dates. Also, have you or anyone ever tried adding protein powder to the mix?

    • Reply Krista October 15, 2016 at 7:54 pm

      Hi Darienne, yes dates are Whole30 compliant. These are a great on the go “snack” for Whole30 but as the book suggests, enjoy these things in moderation. I have made them with protein powder post-Whole30 but I didn’t like the way they turned out. They weren’t as soft and you can really taste the protein flavor. So if you do decide to give it a try, use a protein powder flavor you really like.

  • Reply Haley December 15, 2016 at 8:39 am

    Do you have nutrition facts? I see its 193 calories. What about protein?

  • Reply Caley March 10, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    These are really great! Tastes like I am eating a peanut butter and honey sandwich. I used peanuts instead of cashews. I also added 2 tablespoons of chia seeds and balled them up to make it easier for my young children to grab. My kids love them 2. I’ll have to keep my eye out for my 4 year old–he keeps sneaking into the refrigerator to grab more.

    • Reply Tracy March 10, 2017 at 12:35 pm

      Yummy! What a great idea!

  • Reply Mary Kay March 17, 2017 at 12:04 pm

    I just made these bars using our vitamix. The dough was nice and warm – really yummy! It was a test of will-power to put them in the refrigerator! I’ll be making these again!

    • Reply Tracy March 17, 2017 at 5:20 pm

      Glad you enjoyed them!

  • Reply Jenn April 3, 2017 at 8:19 am

    Do you have the nutrition facts for these bars? They look yummy, but am wondering about carb and sugar grams. Thanks!!

    • Reply Krista April 3, 2017 at 5:26 pm

      Hi Jenn, if you follow the recipe exactly and cut them into 24 squares they have 30 grams of carbs and 24 grams of sugar each.

  • Reply Heather June 10, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    When you blend them, is it on high or low speed? I tried to make them using a Vitamixer, but the cashews created a paste at the bottom and could never get everything the mix to the right consistency. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks!

    • Reply Krista June 19, 2017 at 3:12 pm

      Make sure you soak them and use the lowest power you can on your Vitamix.

      • Reply Tabitha December 30, 2019 at 11:37 am

        What do you mean “soak them”? I do not see anything in the instructions about soaking anything. Thanks for your help!

        • Reply CINDY HERNANDEZ March 9, 2020 at 8:49 pm

          Were you able to find out? i had a very hard time too getting it to blend.

          • Krista Pool March 14, 2020 at 12:21 pm

            I’m not sure where I wrote something about soaking them? Just blend everything. 🙂

        • Reply Krista Pool March 14, 2020 at 12:20 pm

          I’m not sure where you see anything about soaking them? You just blend everything is all.

    I love this recipe and have made them many times. I always keep a couple of individually wrapped ones in my car. Today I decided to amp it up a bit. I added a big spoonful of Pb2 and some chocolate chips. I also used half almonds and half cashews. Add a little water to get the right consistency. Delish!

      You can ad anything to this recipe to change them up. Try adding some different nuts, coco powder, chocolate chips, different fruit, etc. Hope this helps! Let us know if you discover any great combinations!
