Finally, I’m sharing a Whole30-friendly recipe with you guys! I’ve made quite a few of them while I’ve been prepping and on my Whole30 journey, but I wanted to share some other stuff first. But now – they’re coming!

Starting with one of my newest favorites for healthy snacking – a Larabar copycat, in the best possible flavor…Apple Pie! I bought a few Larabars at the grocery store when I was buying some snacks for my Cuba trip. One of the flavors I snagged is Apple Pie. Instantly, I fell in love and had to recreate it.

I ended up hungrily devouring it one day of our trip, and immediately grabbed a notebook and scribbled down a copycat recipe based on the super simple and minimal ingredients in the bar. The sweet flavors, crunchy bits, and the hint of spice immediately stole my heart. I had to have these on hand at home!

Turns out, these are allowed on my Whole30 journey (as long as I don’t eat them as dessert)…so I made them pretty much as soon as I got back home. Holy cow, they are so delicious! Why hadn’t I made these whole30 Larabars before?!

How to make homemade Larabars:

These Apple Pie LaraBars have a base of Medjool dates, which makes them sticky, sweet, and helps them bind together. We make them using almonds, walnuts, raisins, and dried apples to add chew, crunch, and a whole lot of delicious flavor. A little cinnamon is in there too, to add some extra depth and warmth.

These Whole30 Larabar snack bars come together quickly in a food processor and high-powdered blender. I used my Vitamix because I don’t have a food processor. However, a food processor would definitely work better here, so I’d recommend using that if you have one. If your blender isn’t super high-powered, don’t use it. It will burn out quickly because it’s a very thick, stiff dough.

Once all the ingredients for the whole30 Larabars are pulsed together and have formed a sticky, thick dough, you’re pretty much done. I didn’t even use a pan to shape the bars – I simply put the dough in between some sheets of parchment, formed it into a rough rectangle and flattened it out with a rolling pin.

I sliced the dough into 6 bars for the photos, each about the size of a store-bought Larabar, but I ended up cutting each of those in half to snack on, since the whole bar was pretty filling and I was using them as snacks, not a meal replacement or anything. They’re the perfect pick me up and even make a good on-the-go breakfast bar!

Description

This recipe for Homemade Apple Pie Larabars is super simple and incredibly delicious – it requires no baking, and it’s the perfect gluten-free, Paleo, vegan, and Whole30-friendly snack. These Whole30 Larabars will become a quick favorite!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, packed (about 10-12)
  • ¾ cup raw almonds
  • ¾ cup unsweetened dried apples
  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened raisins
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Add the dates to a food processor or high-powered blender (I used my Vitamix) and blend until they’re broken up. Add the dried apples, raisins, almonds, walnuts, and cinnamon.
  2. Pulse until combined – there should be small bits of nuts and raisins remaining, but not too big. Be careful not to over-process so it doesn’t get too sticky or greasy.
  3. Press the dough into a small pan lined with parchment paper, or just place the date dough on the parchment paper and press into a square/rectangular shape, then use a rolling pin or glass bottle to flatten the top. Cut into squares or bars. (I made 6 Larabar-sized bars, but I ended up cutting those in half to eat.)
  4. Store in a sealed bag or small lidded container in the fridge for up to a month, or in the freezer for long-term storage.
