Lemon Larabar Bites

If you have been following this blog for a long time, you know that I have a love for all things larabar.  I have had several requests to do a lemon version, so here it is.  I absolutely love lemons, so I was excited to create the larabar version.

They came out so good!  I am happy to tell you that these are grain and gluten free.  If you have a nut allergy, you can try making them with sunflower seeds.  This makes the perfect snack because it only takes minutes to make them and there is no sugar added!

  1. In the food processor , grind up the almonds and cashews. 
  2. Once they are ground, add in the dates and the lemon juice.  You may need to add in a small amount of water if the mixture looks too dry. 
  3. Once the dough is formed, roll into balls and place them in the fridge to firm up.


I got 14 balls out of my batch. Enjoy!

  1. I made these the other day, they were wonderful! I needed no water, and rolled them in desiccated coconut afterwards. Next time I’ll add a bit of lemon zest too.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. These look good too! I’m making a bunch of light desserts for church these will be perfect! :-). Thanks for all of your yummy recipes I’ll be making several of them today! I have loved everything I’ve made so far! You are a genius! 🙂

  3. Hi Melissa,

    I’m out of almonds at the moment and my 9 year old really wants me to make these. You think I could sub pecans, peanuts, or walnuts for the almonds?

    1. I think any other nut should work except peanuts. Their flavor may be a bit too strong for the lemon
