Homemade Larabar Recipe – Fit Foodie Finds


With just 4 real-food ingredients, you can make these delicious homemade Larabars! I have been a huge Larabar fan since college and who knew they were so easy to make.

With just 4 real-food ingredients, you can make these delicious homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars. This homemade Larabar recipe is vegan & gluten-free and such a perfect on-the-go snack for the kiddos or...you!

I was OBSESSED with Larabars in college. I bought them every single week because I love how minimal their ingredient lists are. So, we just had to make our own copycat Larabars, and friends… something this GOOD shouldn’t be this EASY, but it is.

Did you know, that if you buy your ingredients in bulk, you can make these bars for less than $1 per bar. I call that a win!

Most co-ops and health food stores, like Whole Foods and Fresh Tyme, have amazing bulk sections. Be sure to check them out! You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

What You Need for Homemade Larabars

  • Medjool dates: The key to this recipe! Make sure you are using soft dates. If your dates are older/harder, you will likely need to add a few teaspoons of water. 
  • Unsalted peanuts: The peanuts get blended with the dates for the perfect indulgent, nutty flavor.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips: Peanut butter and chocolate chips make the world go round. Together, they taste delish!
  • Sea Salt: Just a pinch is all you need. Trust me, it makes a huge difference in flavor!

Food processor: You’ll need a food processor to blend everything so these copycat Larabars come out nice and smooth.

Where can you buy medjool dates?

We recommend buying Medjool dates in the produce section, as they are much fresher than the packaged section. The softer the dates, the easier they are to pulverize in the food processor.

Need to Swap Ingredients?

You can swap the peanuts for cashews to make a DIY cashew Larabar recipe. Our 3-Ingredient Cashew Date Bars are delicious! You can also use almonds to make a homemade almond Larabar. 

You can also add different mix-ins, such as dried fruit, coconut flakes, or protein powder, for an extra boost of nutrition.
