Hey guys!!

I am soooo excited to share with you the most delicious homemade nutrition bars you will ever eat. LIFE BARS!

What are LIFE BARS you ask? Well, they are delicious energy bars that are healthy, clean, and vegan!! THEY ARE LIFE!!! You no longer have to go to the store and buy prepackaged bars. 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!

Okay, here are your recipes:



Serving Size: 1 bar

Prep Time: 5 min

Total Time: 5 min


20 large pitted dates

1 cup lightly salted dry roasted peanuts

2 tablespoons natural peanut butter

1/4 teaspoon sea salt


-Place all ingredients into a large food processor.  Be sure to check for pits, even in “pitted dates.”

-Process for 1-2 minutes or until contents have broken down and resemble a thick dough.

-Press into the bottom of a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.  Press the top firmly and evenly.

-Place in refrigerator for 30 min – 1 hour. Cut into 8 bars and wrap in saran wrap until ready to eat.

The method is the same for the rest of the bars!

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.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • […] Idee siit. […]

  • 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!

    • 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.

  • Bianca says:

    I made them! They’re SOOOO delicious!!

  • Martina says:

    Cassey the cherry bar came out really nice!! I just need to know, the calories and values above, for what size bar are they? I tried to calculate calories based on individual ingredients and they seem really high!!! :o please please please let me know!

  • Lisa says:

    Do you know the sugar nutrition facts?

  • Ask Helen says:

    Wow! Everything looks so yummy. I will surely try all of these! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)

  • Renee says:

    Hi! I hope someone can help me with this. Are the dates supposed to be soaked in water before use? I’ve never worked with dates before so I was hoping I could get so help with this. Thanks!

  • Jordan Davidson says:

    You guys, the peanut butter bliss bars are to die for. They seriously taste like dessert. Now I have to stop myself from eating all of them at once… A+!

  • Shasta Brooks says:

    Tried the peanut bliss! except i subsititued in cashews for peanuts and put coconut flakes on top. also i dont have a food processor, so i had to use my blender, which won’t work without a liquid, so i put some cocnut milk in. would have been MUCH better without coconut milk and just peanuts instead of cashews in my opinion, but those were the ingredients that i had, lol. still decent! i love that these are vegan – finally some snack i can take to work! will try with vanilla extract next time – i think that would taste amazing with these.

  • FPS says:

    Hmm the peanut butter bliss or cherry almond cheer? I will have to try them both and see! Thanks for sharing

  • Elena Coto says:

    Hi Cassey! Can I ask you something? I have a problem getting the month calendar. It has happened to me a lot of times. I keep singing in and it doesn’t work. Please help me?

  • Regina Gracia Sandoval says:

    Any suggestions for lowering the sugar content?

  • MGK says:

    hi cassey!!! i loved this recipe. i am a beginner and i just have difficulty in sucking the belly button part. so could u give me some tips to master this.

  • This is the reason why I won’t ever buy Lara bars. I could make my own!

  • Carme says:

    Woww! They look amazing! I have a question… The nutricional info is for 100gr or for 1 bar? Thank youuu!

  • Cecilia says:

    I can’t wait to try making some! I’ll probably make the peanut butter bliss first but I really want to try the coconut cashew craze because I really love cashews. Cashews are the best. :)

  • wow these look so yummy! Definitely trying these!

  • Laura says:

    These look so good! How long can you keep them once they’re made? And do you have to keep them in the fridge?
    I’m so trying this tomorrow!

  • Cassie says:

    Cassey!!! These bars look to die for! I’m so excited you created these bar recipes because they are so easy and so much cleaner than your average nutrition bar. I love the peanut butter bliss bar the best!
