Pumpkin Coconut Larabars

Raw treats are easier to make than you think! Take for example, these chewy, vegan pumpkin coconut larabars, made with raw cashews and almond butter, organic agave nectar, and fiber-packed dates, with nutty coconut undertones and fall-inspired pumpkin pie spice.

These pumpkin coconut larabars are packed with healthy ingredients and are a great snack for the entire family-serve crumbled into tiny pieces to babies (12+ months) or in chunky bites for toddlers. Moms and dads can devour them whole, of course!

These taste best and are at the perfect consistency when they are slightly cooler than room temperature. Unlike store-bought larabars (that are packed with additives to keep them fresh on the shelves) these pumpkin coconut larabars tend to soften quickly so they are best eaten right from the fridge or within an hour or so from removing from the fridge…although they are delicious whether they are firm and crunchy or soft and creamy!

Pumpkin Coconut Larabars

Ingredients
(Yields 6 2 x 3 bars)
1 packed cup dried dates
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tbs. almond butter
1 tbs. organic agave nectar
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Preparation
Add dates and nuts in a large food processor and pulse until ground and combined. They should still be a bit chunky and not too finely ground! Add the remaining ingredients and pulse again until combined. The mixture should be somewhat crumbly but still pack together easily.

Line a 12 x 2.5 x 5 inch biscotti pan with parchment paper and add the mixture. Press down very firmly, spreading the mixture to the edge of the pan (along one side of the pan) until firm and uniform.

Let sit in the fridge for 4-6 hours to firm up.

Remove from the fridge and cut with a sharp knife into desired portions. Store in the fridge in an air tight container or zip lock bag for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  • I’ve been searching for healthier energy bars to put in the kids lunch boxes, especially ones where I can experiment with chucking in different ingredients. Thanks for this recipe, they look amazing and I can’t wait to make them!

    • MY kids devour these!! And yes, they can easily be personalized. I’d love to hear how they turn out for you!

  • oh really Delicious! and not to mention flavorful! Just looking at the ingredients I can already imagine how good it is.

    These sound delicious. I definitely plan on trying this recipe.

  • These sounds like it’s full of flavor!! I would love to try out your recipe soon.

    I love making my own snack bars. It’s so easy to make them yourself and add in your own ingredients.

    • I never make the same recipe twice! I always end up throwing a random ingredient in the mix..and they still taste good! Energy bar ‘recipes’ are very forgiving 😉

  • Oh wow, I have to make me some of these. No one else we’ll eat them in the house so more for me anyway! hehehe I love every ingredient in these too. YUM! Thanks for sharing.

    Pumpkin & Coconut – looks like an entirely different but wonderful & healthy combination for sure. This looks absolutely delicious & a very much energy packed snack for everyone.

  • Debi@The Spring Mount 6 Pack 5 years ago

    They sound fantastic. I would love to make up a batch to take when we have cheer competition. It would be perfect for the long days

  • Monica Platz 5 years ago

    Yum! These bars are so expensive in the store and while we try to eat as healthily as possible it’s difficult because of cost constraints. Thanks for this amazing recipe!

  • rubbieanne 5 years ago

    Not really a fun of this kind of food. But this one looks so yummy! 🙂

  • I’m not a fan of coconut, but these actually look really good! Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

    • I’ve actually been selling these locally and I convinced a client (who hates coconut) to try the pumpkin coconut bars..and she actually loved them!

  • Michelle F. 5 years ago

    Those look so good. i think my daughter and myself would enjoy them.

  • celebbabylaundry 5 years ago

    I love pumpkin and coconut, this sounds perfect!

  • The bars looks really tasty. This is surely healthy too with pumpkin and coconut in it.

  • These look beyond delicious! I may have to make these sometime. I might even make a batch without coconut for the hubs (he hates it).

  • These look absolutely delicious and don’t look that hard to make! I think I may have to try these as a new snack in the house.

  • I’m not a big fan of raw nuts but this looks so yummy! The combo of nuts and fruit is perfect and my 5yo would probably love these too!

    • These are a great snack for toddlers….they’re packed with healthy fats and will keep them full of energy. It would be a great after school snack or before going to a sports lesson!

  • All i see is deliciousness and yuminess all round, these are absolutely to die for. Cheers for the recipe to yummy goodness

  • Ok these look seriously delicious. II love Lara Bars but don’t like the price tag. I’m going to make these this weekend. Can’t wait.

    • I like them too…but since I’ve started making my own I don’t really enjoy them anymore! I find that any of the bars that I purchase every now and again just taste ‘fake!!!’

  • My husband would go crazy over these. He loves both pumpkin and coconut. I may have to make him so for a special treat!

  • I like using cashews for my bars too, they are creamier than almost, I like the taste more.

    • Lisa @bitesforbabies 5 years ago

      I agree! I used almonds and pecans for the longest time and then decided one day to use cashews and now make them almost always with cashews! They have such a mild flavour-I find that other nuts are sometimes too strong of a flavour, depending on the bar. Have you tried this recipe?

  • These look so good. I would definitely try this sometime. 🙂

    • Lisa @bitesforbabies 5 years ago

      You’re going to love them! They are seriously so easy to make and they don’t taste “healthy!’

  • Terri Lynn Grothe 5 years ago

    i want to be your neighbour so I could sample all this

  • Andrea Michaluk 5 years ago

    Looking forward to making these! However I’m going to substitute the Agave for Maple Syrup. Agave is worse than corn syrup !!! People need to read up on Agave and realize how terrible it is for your body!!

    • Lisa @bitesforbabies 5 years ago

      It’s funny you say that because I have read up on it. I feel like there are so many myths/truths out there that I don’t know what to believe anymore! I actually often use raw honey and maple syrup but tend to have to use more because they are less sweet, and for that reason I opt sometimes for agave. I would love to know what you think of these after you make them 😉
