Instead, you can make your own nutrition bars at home! You save on cost, and you know exactly what ingredients you’re putting into them. Perfect snack to take on-the-go, bring to school, or work!

Alright! There you have it! The most delish homemade bars ever! These were so fun and easy to make. You may even think it slightly resembles a Lara Bar! But they are better…hahaha and not so crazy sweet! After taste-testing them right after I made them (because I couldn’t wait -they looked so good!!), my favorite was the Peanut Butter Bliss bar because well, peanut butter is life. AM I RIGHT!!???

Which one are you DYING to make first? Let me know in the comments!

    I don’t have a food processor, but I added about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and my blender did better with it. Plus i chopped the nuts up a little bit before adding everything together.

  2. Haley Yavorski says:

    I am wondering if I could make some without nuts? I am allergic to all nuts but would love to try these!

  3. Zoe Parisian-Jeppesen says:

    How did you get 4 grams of fiber for the coconut cashew craze? I entered all of the ingredients into my fitness app and even added some oats to add fiber, but it comes out to only 2.8 grams per serving. Any ideas to add fiber to these? Anyone tried adding chia?

  4. SandyLa says:

    HI CASSEY! Do you know how much sugar are in these bars? They are so delicious but I am little bit scared about the amount of sugar in these bars. Thank you so much! love you!

    1. Zoe Parisian-Jeppesen says:

      From what I can tell they should be about 12.3 grams per bar. That’s the cashew bar, I don’t know about the other ones.
