When you are trying to eat healthy and clean choosing the right snacks is the important thing. Apart from the regular snacks such as fruits, veggies and hummus etc,. some times I tend to have protein or healthy bars. This is where Larabars come in. They fill me up easily and they are full of all natural and minimal ingredients that you can pronounce. I love that they sweeten their bars with naturally occurring sugars, such as with fruits like figs and cherries. They also have a line based on my favorite ingredient in the world, chocolate. All lines are sans any processed ingredients, gluten free, soy free, vegan, 90% raw, kosher, dairy free, non-GMO and organic. All that I have tried have been absolutely yummy. I have tried a few before, so I knew I was in for a treat getting to try more.
Larabars kindly provided me with 4 of their bars to review. I chose the following bars.
- Chocolate Chip Brownie
- Carrot Cake
- Lemon Bar
- Apple Pie I tried the Carrot Cake Bar first. Just heated for couple of seconds and I devoured it. I checked the ingredients and they are Carrots, dates, almonds, walnuts, raisins, pineapple, coconut, cinnamon and extra virgin coconut oil.
Its luscious, moist and lightly spiced nutritious treat provides 10% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A and 4 grams of fiber.
Fiber and protein packed, low calories, higher fat content but in the good stuff you want fats in. These bars make excellent snacks before a workout and even meal replacements on occasion. They’re so filling and satisfying when you crave something sweet!
I am a big fan of this bar and I like very few of any health bars. I will continue to try new flavors and types and I’m always interested in what else they come out with.
