I wanted to create a healthy snack recipe that the majority of lifestyles could enjoy. Since I’m in the midst of a round of Whole30 right now, these Coconut Cashew Bars were what I came up with. It was also a great way to show what the Vitamix 7500 could do.

 

For those of you who prefer a visual representation, I created the video above. Don’t forget to give it a like and subscribe to my channel on YouTube.

I made this Larabar inspired snack with my Vitamix 7500.

I LOVE MY VITAMIX.

I use it at least once a day.

From my morning coffee recipe to healthy avocado ranch dip to vegetable loaded meatballs.

The Vitamix 7500 has a 2.2 HP motor, that means it can blend cashews, coconut, and dates like a dream. The pulse feature also gives you the choice of the option of texture.

So what’s next with the Vitamix? I want to try soups (yes the Vitamix not only mixes the soup but it heats it up too) and you can bet that I’ll be sharing it when I perfect a recipe.

Whole30 Bars

If you find yourself starving while on Whole30, chances are you didn’t eat enough at mealtime.

However, I like to have these as Whole30 snacks – just in case.

Add this to your list of Whole30 approved snacks.

These bars fall under Whole30 compliance since it contains only three ingredients: dates, coconuts, and cashews.

I love using a base for coconut bars and adding in whatever ingredients I’m craving to complete it. More options would be to add dried fruit, almonds, and if even cocoa.

The consistency of these coconut cashew bars is totally up to you. You can use the Vitamix until they’re completely smooth or you can do what I did and leave some texture in them.

If you blend or process it smooth, it will be the consistency of a Larabar, add chocolate chips and it’s the cashew cookie kind!

This is the texture I stopped with, it was loose but I was able to press it together.

If you want it smoother, it’s easy to make that happen. If you have leftovers, you can crumble it up for Strawberries with Coconut Cashew Crumble.

  1. These became smooth in less than 60 seconds in my Vitamix on low! Smooth texture and oh, so yummy. Nice for a treat. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Theses are good. I made 2 batches, one with almonds and one with pumpkin seeds. I also put in a little pure vanilla. Taste better than Larabars.

    • Fresh is always best (as I totally snack on Larabar as I read this hahaha).

      I LOVE pumpkin seeds in recipes like this. Thanks so much for leaving me this note <3
