Larabars are some of the healthiest snack bars on the market. Although they’re a bit pricy compared to others (anywhere from $1.50-$2.50 per bar), they’re well worth it. According to their website, they believe “the foundation of a sound mind, body and spirit is derived from what you eat, and what you eat is most delicious and satisfying when it’s in a whole, natural state.” I couldn’t agree more!
Plain and simple: I love these bars. Minimal ingredients with no added crap you can’t pronounce, convenience, delicious variety of flavors, and rich in healthy energy to fuel even the most active person. All of them are gluten free and the majority are paleo-approved, too. I love having them before working out, during hikes, or as a snack between classes for brain fuel. I only wish they were a bit bigger.
Cashew cookie: 2nd fave of the bunch! Ingredients are just dates and cashews. The sweetness of the dates kind of overpowers the cashew flavor, but when you get a bite full of cashews, it’s like a freight train of flavor hits your tastebuds. 10/10
Key Lime Pie: Ingredients are dates, cashews, almonds, unsweetened coconut, and lime juice. It’s tart, exactly like a creamy slice of key lime pie. The lime flavor is super intense, but the sweetness of the dates balances it well. And the nuts are like pie crust! 9/10
Coconut Cream Pie: MY FAVE!!!! Ingredients are dates, unsweetened coconut, almonds, cashews, and extra virgin coconut oil. This bar smells JUST like this homemade coconut cream pie from a cafe. Super chewy, coconut-laden texture and vanilla-ish sweetness with a wonderful aftertaste. The sweetness kind of reminded me of the whip cream on top of the pies! Lemme tell ya, if you like coconut, this one’s for you! 12/10
Cappuccino: Ingredients are fair trade certified coffee, dates, cashews, almonds, and vanilla extract. I’m not a fan of coffee so this review is a bit biased. Right off the bat, I noticed it had a weird smell. It tasted like you’re drinking coffee with vanilla flavored dates in it and there was a bitter coffee aftertaste. BUT I’m not a coffe gal, so you may like it. 4/10
