Apple Pie Larabars are an easy, delicious snack that your family will love. Homemade protein bars taste like dessert but they’re actually healthy for you.

I love homemade Larabars. They taste like a treat, but they’re really a healthy, energy-boosting snack. They trick my sweet tooth into thinking it’s gotten what it wanted, and I appreciate that.

This apple pie version of homemade protein bars is truly delicious. It tastes like apple pie, all the way down to the crust.

Apple Pie Larabars Tips

This recipe can be made using a food processor or high-quality blender. I like to leave little bits of the different ingredients to give these bars some texture.

You can shape these treats into bars like I did here, or if you prefer a smaller portion size, you can shape them into 1-inch balls. Either way, you’ll love having these little goodies waiting in your fridge when you want a satisfying snack.

Recommended Equipment


  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 1 cup dried apples
  • 1 cup Medjool dates
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. salt


  • In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and chop them until a paste is formed. Don’t chop them so much that you can’t see little bits of walnuts, apples, and dates.
  • Test to see if the mixture binds together. If not, add a bit of water (up to a tablespoon).
  • Transfer the mixture to an 8 x 8 pan lined with wax paper. Press down evenly.

  • Store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  1. I love this recipe but we can’t do nuts! rats! lol do you think a mixture of hemp seed, chia seed and ground flax would be good?

  2. I tried these and they taste great but they would not bind. They are pretty sweet so I don’t think I need more dates. Suggestions? I am going to try adding either water or almond milk.

    1. I always add a little water when my homemade Larabars don’t bind properly. Works like a charm! Let me know how it goes.

  3. These were super easy to make – however, I had never worked with dates and forgot to remove the pit from the dates! I managed to pick out most of the pits from the mixture but there were a few chopped up in the mixture that I couldn’t pick out… They taste good and I made a double batch but leery to eat them.

    1. Oh no! Sorry to hear that, Allison. I’ve done that before, and my food processor sounds like a helicopter when I leave a pit in one of the dates.

  4. I didn’t have dried apples and was too impatient to dehydrate them so I made these with fresh apples. They were super moist but delicious! They probably won’t form like they should but I rolled them into balls and we shall see! I can’t wait to make these again.

    1. That’s so good to know! I’ve never tried these with fresh apples, but I’m sure they’d still taste good even if the texture isn’t as dry as it could be.

    2. That’s what I was looking for! I see it’s been awhile, but do you remember? Did they turn out well?

    1. I’ve never tried freezing these, Kellie, but I think they would freeze just fine. Let me know if you try it.

  5. This recipe looks delicious. Have you swapped the nuts in these with any success? I have a walnut allergy, but was thinking I could use almonds, but wasn’t sure if the oil content might not make them work as well. Guess I could just give it a go {give it a grind??} and play around with it! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Allison, I do mix and match the nuts in my homemade Larabars. Almonds should work well here. If the final product isn’t binding well, add water one teaspoon at a time until it comes together well. Enjoy!
