Molasses Cookie Larabars

Share it Please
I made molasses cookies today and I was going to post those, but, unfortunately, they have to be tweaked a bit before they're blog-worthy. *sigh* So instead I'll post an old favorite of mine. And these are no bake!  Hopefully, I'll have the molasses cookie recipe perfected soon.

Molasses Cookie Larabars

It tastes like a soft molasses cookie. Except it's healthier than a cookie. With no sugar, flour, eggs, or butter this will be one of the healthiest cookies you'll ever eat.

There's just one problem.

It's not a cookie.


Yup, you heard me. But, yet, it tastes soooooo much like the molasses cookies Grandma used to make when you were a child. I thought I would never taste a molasses cookie again. I'm immensely glad I was wrong.

1/2 c. walnuts
1/4 c. dates
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black strap molasses
1 T. maple syrup

1. Pulverize walnuts, dates, spices, and salt until ground to your liking.
2. Add the molasses and syrup. Pulse until thoroughly combined.
3. Shape into bars or balls.
4. Freeze until firm or skip step 3 and eat it straight out of the food processor!

This will keep for a couple months in the freezer without getting freezer burn. I'm not sure how long they'll keep in the fridge, but I'm guessing for a few weeks. 

Makes 2 bars or 6 balls

Substitution Notes: Sub the walnuts for any other kind of nuts you have on hand. The dates can be replaced by raisins or even prunes. If you don't have black strap molasses use any other kind. The maple syrup can be subbed for honey or agave nectar.

Inquiry of the Day:

Have you ever had a molasses cookie?

When I was younger we used to make them almost every Christmas. We haven't made molasses cookies in a long time, though. Sunday, I just happened to have a hankering for 'em and thought they'd be delicious in Larabar form.


  1. Oooh these look great! Can't wait to try 'em out. I have been having a hard time finding my favourite larabar flavours at the grocery store lately so I should really just make my own.
    I was never really a fan of molasses anything until after I went vegan, not sure I have had a cookie though. So I look forward to the recipe =)

    1. I can't find my favorite flavors either! I wonder what's up with the Larabar company. :\ But I like these better anyways (except for the Ginger Snap Larabar, I have a secret obsession with those). Thanks for commenting and have a great week!


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
