Homemade Larabars – With Different Flavor Ideas

This post has a comprehensive list of all my Homemade Larabar Recipes – every single recipe I’ve ever posted – all in the same place, from Cookie Dough Larabars, to Peanut Butter Larabars, to the reader-favorite Fudge Brownie Larabars. Hope you enjoy!

How to make your own healthy Larabars at home, for a wholesome and portable snack with different flavor options @choccoveredkt

Homemade Larabars – The Recipes:

(View the video, above)

Nutrition Information for the Homemade Larabar Recipes:

The homemade larabar nutritional info is based upon the girl-scout cookie larabars; however I think all the flavors are probably pretty similar. Each Larabar-sized bar (45 grams) will have around 175 calories, 8 gramsΒ healthy fat, 2 grams protein, 25 grams carbs, 5 grams fiber, and zero grams of added sugar.

    I did it! I finally made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies!! Outside of my silly mistake about the wrong dates (that’s all the store had!), they were absolutely delicious!! Thanks Katie! I blogged about them and sent everyone here for your great recipe!

    • Katelyn says

      What type of dates did you use? I have not made these yet, but want to. I have chopped pitted dates. I think they are dried and am not sure if they will work. Also, I don’t have a blender or food processor…

      • Kaelyn says

        If they are pitted, once you take out the seed, you get VERY hot (not quite boiling unless you just want to) and put it in a bowl and soak them for about 8-10 minutes and it works very well πŸ˜‰ Not sure if they will work without a blender/processor though πŸ™ sorry

  3. LK Sisters says

    Is it possible to make one of your dessert “babies” (fudge, pb, pumpkin, etc) nut-free? What would happen if the nuts were omitted? Would you just leave them out, or would you replace them with something else?

    • Melissa says

      I’ve made nut free ones with coconut. I’ve also done oats rather than nuts. πŸ™‚ They are slightly stickier (I like this, as I freeze mine and they get all chewy and caramelish) and a bit harder to roll but tasty!

        • Kristi says

          I just made the original fudge babies using raw sunflower seeds, instead of nuts, I had to add about 1/2 tsp of coconut oil and they came out great!

    I just made Kentucky Derby Pie babies! Derby pie is a pecan or walnut pie with bourbon and chocolate chips–so I made babies with 80g dates, 30g pecans, about 15g vegan semisweet chocolate chips and a splash of bourbon vanilla extract. Yum. Highly recommneded.

    The Peanut Butter sound to die for. I think I would die for just about anything that had peanut butter on it actually….

    The chocolate chip cookie dough babies sound wonderful! I think even my husband would eat them!! I’ve been coveting a Vitamix for ages – I would start with the yummy salad dressings from my Everyday Raw book I just got for xmas, followed by lots of soups and then Green Monsters for my kids and I in the morning. No end to the fun…or the possibilities.

    I would first make some vegan ice cream, just because I used to be an ice cream freak before I cut out dairy. Then I would try out the chocolate chip dough babies. I have been eyeing those for a while.

    Katie, thanks so much for this giveaway! The tiramisu fudge babies sound absolutely decadent!! If I had a Vitamix, I’d make some southwestern tortilla and corn soup. (The heating function of the Vitamix sounds so helpful!)

  23. Suzi says

    I make chocolate fudge babies all the time. They are now a staple in my diet! I think I need to try the peanut butter cup ones, though. The first thing I would make with the Vitamix is a smoothie with a whole apple in it and kale, too because my blender cannot handle that at all. We really want a Vitamix, but it’s not in our budget right now!

  25. Pamela says

    The flavor that sounds best to me is the Hot Cocoa Baby flavor! I make fudge babies all the time in my old hand me down food processor and absolutely love them! I have shared them with many people, including my professors who all love them! If I had a Vita-mix I would make tons of peachy-green ice cream, smoothies and vegan soups! Thanks for the opportunity Katie aka Ms. CCK!

  27. Heather says

    the peanut butter cup babies are definitely the best! The first thing that I would make would be a green monster. I make them in my current blender, but it takes so long because I constantly have to mix it around with a spoon (dangerous)! That would be for breakfast, and then I’d make almond butter to have with lunch, butternut squash soup for dinner, and lots of peanut butter babies for dessert. I’ve been wanting a vita-mix for so long, thank you so much for this opportunity, Katie!

    The flavors that I’d want to make first would be the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Snickerdoodles. My two favorite cookies πŸ™‚ Thanks for such a great giveaway, I’ve heard such wonderful things about the Vita-Mix, I’ve been wanting to make frozen banana “ice cream” for the longest time!

    I would make raw ice cream from frozen bananas first! It’s not much, but I’ve always wanted to try it and have never had anything remotely powerful enough to handle it.

    If I had a vitamix I woudl make Raw Chocolate cookie dough balls, and ots of non-dairy Ice cream. I have wanted one for YEARS after my sister showed me all the cool things she can make with hers. As a gluten-free, dairy-free,
    sugar-free marathon mom it would be very handy….:)

  41. Luv2CUSmile says

    I would have gone w/ the Peanut Butter cup babies but I really must choose the Mounds Bar Babies! It is definitely the Mounds Bar Babies!
    Oh! But the firs thing I would make if I won the Vitamix would probably be Butternut Squash Soup! I just bought two and did so after making a Butternut Squash casserole. I needed two more to have on hand just so I didn’t have an excuse NOT to make a Butternut squash dish again. LOL If I keep them in the house, I must eat them! We love butternut squash!

    Tiramisu fudge babies! These would definitely be the first thing I’d make if I had a Vitamix. Tiramisu was my all time favourite dessert pre-veganism, but I always ate way more than was good for me. Having a healthy vegan-friendly recipe for this awesome dessert is just what I need : )

    My favourite fudge baby is the peanut butter cup variation. We have been making something similar for years and it never fails to satisfy the odd Reese’s craving. As for the Vita-Mix, the first thing I would make is a big batch of green smoothies! Mmmm…

    My favorite baby is the pumpkin pie one – I am a fiend for all things pumpkin!!

    They’re the 1st thing I would make in the Vita Mix (followed by the rest of the list!!) I do have a list of things I want to try if I ever get my hands on one, with Green Smoothies and ice cream and some original “I wonder if that would work” ideas as well

    Thanks for the contest!

    oh boy… a vita-mix would make me SUCH a happy girl πŸ™‚
    first, i’d make some deeeelish almond, cashew, and sunflower seed buttah.

    then, once i have my nut butter fix taken care of, i’d get started on some snickerdoodle babies!

    then, i’d probably NEVER come out of the kitchen because i’d be busy trying about every recipe i could get my hands on πŸ™‚

    The Peanut Butter Cup Fudge babies sound most excellent. I may add a banana to them though and call them ” A Big Hunk O’ Love” Fudge Babies.

    If I had a Vitamix, gosh what wouldn’t I make?! Hummus, homemade nut butters, soup, SIAB, green smoothies, protein ice cream, raw apple crumble, etc. The possibilities are endless!

    Well as you already know, I’m quite a fan of the original fudge babies and pretty much eat one every morning before me run (the perfect pre-run fuel). But I’m really excited to try the raw gingerbread people. I love gingerbread and this version sounds better than the traditional stuff!

    The first thing I would make would be a HUGE green smoothie full of spinach or kale, fruit and almond milk. After that, I would make some chocolate chip cookie balls.

    pumpkin pie babies would be my fav, fo sho.. and I think I would try to make chocolate tofu pudding — since I’ve tried in my bullet-type blender and didn’t get a good mix. I eat those snak-pak puddings every day, and want to try to make a splenda-free version.

    I would absolutely make the hot cocoa fudge babies! Before I went vegan that was always my favorite drink on a frozen morning, and whenever I’ve made these before they always remind me of that.
    As for the first thing I would make with a vitamix, I think I would make a blended salad. I’ve been dying to try Gena’s (Choosing Raw) Creamy Zucchini Soup but I’ve never been able to because I don’t have the right equipment! πŸ™‚
    The other thing I would make is chocolate avocado pudding. I’ve always mashed the avo with a fork, but I think it would be better if it were completely smooth….

    I would go with the Macaroon Babies. MMMM. As for the first thing I would do with the vita-mix…the possibilities are endless. I would make some type of soup (Probably a Bisque type soup) or I would do some fantastic fruit ice cream!

    I love the peanut butter babies and have been interested in trying the chocolate chip cookie dough babies. It sounds delish.

    … and i did make them! AMAZING! although no ginger men for me, just balls. one man’s enough!

    anyway, i just want to make sure i don’t mess with the results.. my original comment was 1/16 at 9:45. will that be ok? or do i need to comment now that i’ve actually followed the directions (sigh. sorry!)?

  141. Gwen says

    This is for the vitamix contest! The fudge baby I’d try first is likely to be tiramisu, though, I’d have to through some vin santo in there, get pine nuts in somehow, and dip it in homemade white chocolate! Next, thyme glazed macadamia nuts with sweet preserved lemons to replace an old shortbread favorite. Then gingerbread babies with apricots, black forest fudge babies with cherries…and some saffron, orange blossom, pistachio, dried strawberries are definitely begging to be made into babies, somehow.

    The first thing I’d make in my vitamix would be nut milk, to be fermented into a yogurt that I’d drain, add some other ingredients including bacteria to, and age, in hopes of advancing my nut-cheese creations! A vitamix would allow me to buy nuts in bulk and cut down on the cost of packaged almond milk, what a lifesaver that would be right now!

      80g dates, a bit over 1/16th tsp salt, 30g raw almonds, very scant ΒΌ tsp vanilla, heaping 1/8 tsp cinnamon, pinch of cream of tartar
      (I’m not sure it actually needs the c.o.t. But snickerdoodle cookies have it, so I sometimes add it.)

    Someone asked if you could replace the nuts with anything… I use ground flaxseeds (you can get a big bag, as well as big bags of the nuts, from Costco). It helps dry it out a bit, as well is healthy for you. If you really want to be healthy, use cacao (raw chocolate) instead. It’s a bit more bitter (like dark chocolate), but great for you.

    Have you ever tried making larabars with pistachios? Or did you ever have the pistachio larabars before they were discontinued? I just started my larabar addiction this year and I recently found out that back in 2009 or before they used to have pistachio larabars and chocolate-chili larabars.

      I haven’t!
      I’m sad about that… I used to hate pistachios, which is really weird because now I love them. I’ll definitely have to try using them as a base for the fudge babies. Thanks for the idea! πŸ™‚

    Have you ever tried making larabars with pistachios? Or did you ever have the pistachio larabars before they were discontinued? I just started my larabar addiction this year and I recently found out that back in 2009 or before they used to have pistachio larabars and chocolate-chili larabars. So sad that they were discontinued πŸ™

    Any opinions on chili-chocolate? I love crazy flavor combinations haha. For the longest time I was only trying out your fudge baby recipes but I recently tried your deep dish cookie pie and naughty girl fudge recipes and they are just as awesome, but no surprise there. Your blog is very inspiring.

    Homemade Larabars are delicious! So easy and so tasty!!
    Have you heard/tried a Cliff Bar? If so, have you ever thought about trying to make a homemade version of those?

    I made some fudge-babies inspired by you the other night! Lots of dates, nuts, seeds, raisins and vanilla, blitzed into a dough.. and I got the idea to add a handful of crunchy cereal! Rolled into balls, into the freezer.. OMG. Chewy, crunchy amazingness! I had to share!
    Thanks for the inspiration! β™₯ xx

    Have you done any experiments adding some protein to these? I understand the whole vegan thing, but I love the Rise protein bars because of their simple ingredients (almonds, whey protein and honey) And they pack 23 grams of protein per bar.
    Could you add, maybe, some hemp protein powder? And if you did that, what would you include to make them not too dry?

    Hi! I love these recipes! I got addicted to the fudge babies…. Now I’m into experimenting with different flavors. I just made cashew cookie with a few drops of lemon extract and it was AWESOME! Like a lemon cookie. I might try orange zest next.

    Katie! I have to tell you about this AWESOME date product I found. It’s by a company called Ziyad. They are “Baking Dates” pitted and pressed. That’s all! No sugars or anything added. I used them in your pumpkin dip. Planning to make into Lara Bars. Already soft texture, no need to soak. I’m just thrilled. My local grocery store had them for 1.99 for a 13oz package, but just this week dropped the price to 1.19! I bought 10! I don’t know if it is always in stock or if just temporary. Was on special island shelfing unit with other products by this company like falafel mix and hummus and tahini. Didn’t know if you had heard of it, but i’m LOVING it! Just wanted to share my findings! Saw they have it on amazon, but shipping is twice the cost! That’s ridiculous!

    I make the Samoa Lara bars weekly…they are absolutely the best. I firgured out the Weight Watchers Plus points to be 2.7 each. If you make a double batch and use approximately a 1/3 cup each bar or 50 grams each bar. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Do you think I could substitute raisins for dates in the recipes that you use dates? P.S. I love your website. I am obsessed and have gotten so many people I work with obsessed too!

    Hi Katie,

    I love love loooove your recipes. Truly aids in my sweet tooth πŸ™‚ I was wondering if you could add some sort of protein to this recipe to make them more like protein bars? Or do you have a homemade protein bar recipe?

    Thanks so much,

    I’m trying to make the chocolate fudge bars but I can’t get them to stick together! What is the trick? I’ve tried to put some in a baggie and squeeze it into a bar shape but it soon falls apart again. I tried to put it in a pan and flatten it and slice it up but it just keeps crumbling. We like the way the crumbs taste but it’s going to be a huge mess in my kids lunch! Help please!

    First off, I love your lara bar recipes so much! πŸ™‚ I take them for lunch to school everyday πŸ™‚ But I was wondering how you got your magic bullet to grind the dates? Mine grinds a little bit but then it gets all gunked up and stops. Is there anything special you do with your magic bullet?

    I stumbled on your blog and this recipe recently and I am in love!!! With both the recipe and your blog πŸ™‚ I am always on the lookout for healthier dessert and your blog is perfect! The fudge babies are actually our dessert for the week in our meal plan with a little winter twist, I added a 1/4c Andes peppermint chips to your hot cocoa recipe and it is amazing!! I couldn’t stop sneaking tastes while making them and now I can’t keep my 3 year old son from going into the refrigerator and eating them haha! Thanks for the great recipe.

    My mom and I are addicted to these. Seriously, they are fricking addicting, all without high fructose corn syrup. They are so chewy and rich, they taste like a healthy fruit snack. When I made these I had success using my Ninja. I actually made my own sweet potato pie larabars:

    Substitute 1/3 cup of the dates with dehydrated sweet potatoes. Sprinkle in cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking. Blend as usual. Optional: Substitute X cups of dates for X cups of oats.

    Using this method, you could actually make any pie flavor, here are some ideas.

    Blueberry pie
    Apple Pie
    Lemon Meringue
    Key Lime
    Cherry Pie
    Raspberry Pie
    Banana Cream
    Coconut Cream

    Wow!! This thread seems to go on forever… ! I am not sure how I got here; just kept following one delicious recipe after another… The thing is, my favorite Larabar is the nice, tart Cherry Pie (which is a good thing because cherries are supposed to relieve arthritis). Not being a master of changing things up, I am looking for suggestions on how to make this particular flavor of Larabar. Ideas?

    I’m in love with chocolate chip cookie dough Larabars, and will probably still buy them for easy snacks at the gym post-workout, but I am thrilled to be able to make some at home (and save some dolla dolla bills y’all)! This is perfect for when I want a sweet treat without the guilt of a brownie. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

    Hi!
    I actually made my own version of the Gingerbread one they offered this fall! I am not a huge chocolate fan (uh oh is that a sin on this page?!) but it is partially because of a food sensitivity so I try to make things without it. Check out my Gingerbread version:
    http://www.mynuttyperfectionism.com/homemade-gingerbread-larabars/

    Chocolate differences aside, I still love your recipes! Also, I can only dream that my blog becomes half – no a fourth- as successful as yours so any points or tips would be appreciated!

    The oatmeal and peanut butter sound great! Can’t wait to try them. Do you have variation or suggestion for an apple larabar? The original contains walnuts, apples, cinnamon, and dates. Looking for a recipe to try. Thanks.

Just found out about these from my hospital nutritionist today!!! Can’t wait to try them!!!
