Homemade LARABAR bites


Healthy, easy to make recipes are the best kind! These homemade LARABAR bites are made in a Vitamix using only 3 ingredients. They only take 2-3 minutes to make with no baking needed – just pop in the fridge and they are ready to enjoy in under an hour!


Now let me be completely honest – I love the bought Larabars and I think it may be more cost effective to purchase them, but when my girls were begging for a healthy snack and I had none left in the cupboard, I decided to make them some.

To make the homemade LARABAR bites you will need:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3/4 cup dates (pitted)

Place all ingredients in a Vitamix and blend on high till everything is mushed together. You do not want to over blend because it is nice to have a bit of texture.

Press the mixture into a 4×6 mini glass pan or even on a plate and put in the fridge for at least 45 minutes. Once cold you can slice and serve. I like to cut mine into bite size pieces for the girls.

Now if you want to make these yummy homemade LARABAR bites and don’t have a Vitamix, today is your lucky day.

Multi-Testing Mommy and I have teamed up together with Vitamix to host a giveaway for a Vitamix 7500!



I have made numerous delicious recipes using my Vitamix. Everything from healthy ice cream using only fruit and ice to fudge, hot soup, smoothies, healthy hot chocolate, banana bread and I have even ground up raw turkey meat!
