MCLV Mange: Homemade Larabars

My major issue with most of the pre-made bars on the market is their ingredient list. Chemicals, sugar, unnecessary additives…

Larabars are one of my go-to picks when I’m traveling and I keep extras in my desk, purse, and even my toiletry kit. Why? Simple, clean, whole food ingredients. They’re the perfect little energy boost and super tasty.

Since I love them so much I decided to try making my own version to keep at home. This recipe is allergy friendly {Vegan, Gluten-Free & Paleo}, plus it’s raw, easy to make, and – Most importantly – Delicious!

6-8 Bars depending on size


8-10 Minutes of preparation and no cooking time!


  • 8oz Pitted Dates
  • 1/2 Cup Almonds {Or other nut if you have an allergy or don’t have almonds on hand}
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate/Carob Chips
  • 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds


  • Combine dates & nuts in a food processor – Blend until a paste-like substance begins to form
  • Add salt and blend until the consistency begins to resemble dough
  • Add half of the chocolate chips & pulse a few times
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil
  • Drop the dough onto the sheet and press dough down into a square or rectangle shape {Aim for 3/4-inch thick – Though it’s really about your person preference}
  • Drop remaining chocolate chips & silvered almonds on top, press gently into dough
  • Cut into bars or squares
