Chocolate Chip Cookie Homemade Larabar Recipe

The Larabar Experiment: Attemp #2

My second attempt at creating a homemade Larabar was even tastier than the first.

I don’t know about you, but I love cookie dough. When I bake cookies, I’m not sure whether more of it goes in my mouth or on the baking sheet. :D

So, I was naturally delighted when I found Camilla’s recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabar.


 1/3 cup roughly chopped dates

1/2 cup raw cashews

 1 Tablespoon semi-sweet chocolate  (She recommends 1/2 oz. but I just used a Tbsp. as I wasn’t sure of the measurement)

 Pinch of cinnamon

 1/2 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Follow the instructions in this post:

The Healthy Gingerbread man....

You can get as creative as you want with these shapes! I thought my Christmas cookie cutters were a great ‘seasonal’ modification. :D


The top and right bars are the cookie dough flavour and the bottom left are the Coconut flavour


Makes 2-3 bars depending on the size you want them. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Larabars have approx 210 kcal per bar if you make three out of this recipe.

So cool… I’ve been thinking about trying homemade Larabars myself. The chocolate chip cookie dough sounds so awesome.

And I love your Canadian accent!

Hi there,
I found your blog last week and I’m HOOKED! It’s great to see a normal gal who’s got herself looking so great. It gives me hope that I can drop my extra 10 pounds without killing myself over it.

One question – how does alcohol/eating out factor into your diet? Do you avoid drinking or going to restaurants, or do you cut back on other stuff when you do?

Thanks for all of the fun advice you’ve given so far!

Just made these. Yummmm!!! Totally satisfied my sweets craving with just a few bites.

I love this recipe! I make it all the time. I stir in the chocolate chips at the end though because I like big chunks of chocolate! :)

I made a couple substitutions because I didn’t have cashews in the house, but YUMMY doesn’t even begin to describe this!!! Thank you!! They were the perfect consistency! (BTW – I tripled the batch so I could take them to share with friends.)

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to let you know that I LOVE this recipe. I probably make it at least once a month. I gushed about it to a coworker, who was bummed that she couldn’t make it for her kids due to a nut allergy. So I created a nut-free version using sunflower seeds and tahini. It has a different taste, but is pretty good in it’s own right. I thought you’d appreciate the use of the ice cube tray to create the “bites”. Thanks again for the inspiration!

Awesome Ill check it out!

Hi, Angela. I just bought the Vega Sport “Nutritional Shake” in Chocolate and the “Performance Protein” in Berry. They are absolutely disgusting and I gag trying to drink them in Silk or Water (the recommended.) Do you have any suggestions of your recipes I could use these two products? Perferably I could bake them into something sweet, as they are veeeeery chalky textured/flavored. Please respond! I need your help! And thank you so much for this website, I love your recipes!

Have you tried adding a bit to smoothies? Try adding just a tbsp or two and see how that goes. :)
