I recently tried a Larabar for the first time the other day. I was super impressed.
Larabars are raw vegan nutritional bars. But, they aren't filled with all the fortified crap that you'll find in a lot of other bars.
These are the five flavors that our neighborhood Trader Joe's has:
-peanut butter cookie
-peanut butter chocolate chip
But, Larabars come in 14 other flavors, too:
-chocolate chip brownie
-chocolate chip cookie dough
-chocolate coconut chew
-coconut creme pie
-key lime pie
-peanut butter and jelly
-tropical fruit tart
This is the "peanut butter cookie" bar. It has three ingredients (most of the bars have 5 ingredients or fewer): peanuts, dates and salt.
It tastes like a damn cookie. I didn't eat that one, though. I told Ian that I would let him try each of these flavors. He's not big on bars.
It's nice to know that there is a healthy treat out there for grabbing and going, but that's not really why I bought them. My mom is handing her Ninja blender down to us and I want to experiment with making my own bars. I intend to use these as a model.
