Homemade Pecan Pie Larabars

Yes!  Homemade Pecan Pie Larabars is what today’s post is about.   I just can’t seem to get enough of them.  The Coconut Cream is still my fave larabar recipe, but these pecan larabars are very tasty as well.

They are also no bake and take a few minutes to throw together.  This is my kind of recipe. Vegan, gluten free and paleo too!

They taste just like pecan pie with none of the guilt!  Feel free to have two, or three.  No added sugars in here.  They get their sweetness from dates.

Nature’s candy.  Yum!  Warning….these are addictive.  These larabars are also gluten free and grain free!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Pecan Pie Larabars

Prep Time 10 min


  1. Blend the pecans and the almonds in a food processor until they are fine.
  2. Then mix in the dates.
  3. The nuts will release their natural oils so there is no need for water. If yours looks a bit dry, you can add a tiny amount, but I didn’t have to.
  4. Line an 8X8 pan with parchment ,
  5. leaving enough room for some paper to stick out the sides.
  6. Press the dough evenly into the pan.
  7. Once it’s spread out, use the extra paper to press the dough down with your palms so it’s packed well.
  8. Stick in the fridge to firm up. About 2 hours should be good. 
  9. Once it’s chilled, cut into squares with a pizza cutter .

  1. Hi, I made these this morning with the medjool dates. I have a good food processor (KitchenAid) and it had a very hard time getting everything mixed well. I ended up having to add a fair amount of water because I didn't want to burn up my food processor. The taste is good so I will make them again but I will either cut up the dates into smaller pieces or figure out a way to make a paste since it was pretty thick.
    1. How many cups is your food processor? I make mine in a 7 cup Cuisinart with no issues. You can try chopping up the dates and also soaking them prior to making these. That should help soften them.
  2. I'm getting ready to make my second batch of these. Although I'm out of Medjool dates and am using organic zahidi dates this time. It would be great if the recipe also told how many cups of dates. My husband loves these and said they are better than the store bought Lara bars. Thank you!
  3. Perfect & easy recipe! I made these in my Vitamix and they came out perfect. I didn't have medjool dates but the pitted ones I had worked just fine. My husband LOVED them. Can't wait to try some more of your Lara Bar recipes. Thanks for the help!
  4. I know everything is better and tastes better fresh, but I know myself... having excess of this recipe will make sick of them after a few days and ill have to dump the rest. Have you ever had to freeze any of your "larabar" recipes? Maybe if I turn half the pan into little "truffle" balls they will freeze and thaw better? Thoughts?
  5. Tried using my manual food processor. hahaha No luck Getting chopped up pretty good but need to get a real food processor. Always wanted one and we have lots of food sensitivities so I will be using it a lot. Do you have a brand or size you recommend for these types of recipes. I see al sorts of them including a ninja bullet type. They are pricey so would like to get information from a pro like yourself who has used one. By the way what we have put together so far is great. Saving a fortune making them ourselves. Will be making recipes around sale prices to cut the cost. Our diet tends to run us more money anyway. Thank you for the yummy recipe. =)
    1. I use this one for all my recipes. I love it. Had it two years so far. I use it every single day and it has held up great. http://tinyurl.com/processor-mwfl
  6. I got it thank you. Actually found the same brand but another model at Kohls since I needed it for today. The bars turned out great. Thank you again. =)
  7. I want to start making this for my breakfast, got any idea on portion size? how many I should have without overkilling it! I have a lot of food intolerances and a HUGE sweet tooth ...this is basically the perfect option! please reply!!!
    1. I think if you made these in an 8x8 pan, and cut them into 9 squares, you could probably have 2 squares. :)
  8. I make these and it always falls apart into crumble. It is so good my family doesn't mind but I want to be able to package it easier for when school starts. What could I be doing wrong? I did try and cool.
    1. Really? I have never had it happen before. I am sorry it happened to you. What kind of machine are you using to blend?
  9. I am using a Kitchen Aid from Khols I did only use pecans since I didn't have almonds. Maybe that was it. I will try again. Either way it is gobbled up. =)
