Homemade Cashew Cookie LARABAR

This seriously is probably the easiest recipe on the blog and I know it has the fewest ingredients of any other recipe on the blog….only 2. That’s right…dos, two, duex! To make a fantastic bar that tastes just like cookie dough, you don’t need to add anything else to the original LARABAR ingredients. I saw several recipes around the internet that called for salt, vanilla, peanut butter, but it’s just not necessary I tell ya. Yikes…by looking at the pictures, I could have done a much better job of forming these into bars! ;)


I was able to get 10 really good size bars out of this recipe and lets just check out the nutritional stats compared to the “real” cashew cookie LARABAR….
Nutritional stats from the LARABAR cashew cookie:nutrition cashew cookies

Nutritional stats from my cashew cookie recipe:
198 kcal, 24g carbs, 10g fat, 5g protein, 9g sodium, 16g sugar

I’m not sure how all this came out….looks like maybe I used less nuts and more dates than the original. I guess we’ll never know!


Be sure and check out my other LARABAR recipe on the blog, Homemade Coconut Creme Pie LARABARs. I wrap these in cling wrap and store them in my fridge for a quick grab and go snack.
