Make your own Key Lime Pie Larabars with this simple seven-ingredient recipe.
Every time I think about these bars I think about one of two things. The first is how good they are and the second is that “Lime in the Coconut” song from the 70’s. It’s actually called Coconut and it’s by Harry Nilsson. I only know this because I just found it Apple Music and listened to it multiple times… send help.
Anyhow, these bars a pretty similar to my Coconut Chocolate Chip Larabars, but with lime (obviously). They have more of a summertime, tropical vibe going on and they’re delish!
The lime zest makes them extra limey and gives them a hint of tartness which pairs nicely with the sweetness from the dates.
If you’re a lime lover, this might just become your go-to snack option throughout the summer. The bars only take a few minutes to whip up and they’re portable so you can easily pack them for a road trip, beach day or even the office. Enjoy!
Homemade Key Lime Pie Larabars with dates, cashews, almonds and coconut.
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
10 medjool dates (I used Natural Delights)
1/4 cup cashews
1 teaspoon coconut oil
zest from one lime
2 Tablespoons lime juice
Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
Place coconut, almonds and cashews into food processor (affiliate link) and pulse until they’re chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
Put dates into the food processor (affiliate link) and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
