Homemade Chocolate Larabars Recipe

Homemade Chocolate Larabars.  Everyone seems to love energy bars.  They’re quick, easy and travel well.  Store bought brands can cost over $1.50 a piece, so I have set out to make some homemade versions.

First I came up with a Clif Bar recipe, then a KIND bar and now homemade chocolate brownie larabars.  This chocolate larabars recipe is just a first of several flavors to come.

These homemade larabars took only a few minutes to mix up.  I think the taste was pretty spot on.  I would store them in the fridge just to be sure they stay firm.

These should keep in the fridge for at least a week if not more.   You can also freeze them!

Prep Time 15 min



  1. In the food processor , mix the dates and water until a paste forms.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder and almonds and continue to pulse until a dough comes together.
  3. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment leaving enough room for some to stick out the sides. That way the bars will be easier to pull out. 
  4. Place in the fridge to firm up for a couple hours.
