Homemade 3-Ingredient Lara Bars

Have you ever heard of Larabars? They are these delicious energy bars that are sweetened using dates instead of sugar, and they are DELICIOUS!

The Lara Bar Company list all the ingredients for each bar on their website, so I decided to give it a go at trying to make a rendition of my own.  I am so excited about how they turned out!  They are super easy to make, and I just used three ingredients!  They are over the top delicious, and I can guarantee these will be a regular in our household from now on!



  • 1 cup pitted dried dates
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup cashews (you can use any type of nut.  I used cashews and they turned out great – next time I will probably try almonds!)


1.) Add all the ingredients to a food processor.  Process on high until a ball forms, pausing to scrape down the sides when necessary.  This may take a few minutes.

2.) Place the ball in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

3.) Take out of the refrigerator, and use your hands or a roller to flatten and shape into a rectangle that is about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick.  Place back in the refrigerator for another hour.

4.) Take out of the refrigerator and cut into bars using a sharp knife.  Remove from the wax paper and store in an airtight container.  You can store these in the refrigerator or freezer.  You can also store them out of the refrigerator, but they will be softer this way.

Perfect snack!  Enjoy! 🙂
