Homemade key lime pie Larabars with dates, cashews, almonds and coconut. They’re vegan, gluten-free and the perfect snack.

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!

Key Lime Pie Larabars

Homemade Key Lime Pie Larabars with dates, cashews, almonds and coconut. They're vegan, gluten-free and the perfect snack.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 5 bars


  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup about 10 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • zest from one lime
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice


  • Prep pan: Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Process nuts: Place coconut, almonds and cashews into food processor and pulse until they're chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  • Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
  • Combine and process again: Add nuts and coconut back into the processor with the dates and pulse until well combined. Add coconut oil, zest and juice and pulse a few more times, until they’re just incorporated.
  • Press dough into pan: Remove dough from processor and press evenly into your prepared dish. Make sure you press the dough down really well so that the bars stay together.
  • Let set: Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to harden up and then slice into bars.
  • Store: Store any leftovers in the fridge with parchment paper between each bar for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. I’m always looking for health bar recipes. These look and sounds so delightful! I cannot wait to give them a try. xo, Catherine

  2. I pinned these because I’m so excited to make them! They looks great and can’t wait to dig in!

  3. Ha ha, yes!! I always think of that song too–and now I will have it in my head all day. I guess to get this recipe it was worth it 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    Great recipes and a great site. As I have aged, and I am an early boomer, I find I eat less, eat light, and feel good, with no increases in weight or wild fluctuations. Having great looking and great tasting food that is good for me is just what we all need. Keep them coming.

  5. I’ve read several of your other “Larabar” recipes, and each time I’m reminded that I need to make them for us! It’s so easy to buy them, but it’s way more fun and customizable to make them myself. Lime sounds like an incredible addition.

    1. Thank you so much, Kori. I buy Larabars occasionally too, but they are really fun to make at home! 🙂
