A bar I don’t talk about enough is definitely the LÄRABAR. For those of you who don’t know (which IMO isn’t a lot of you), LÄRABAR is a snack company that creates completely raw, vegan, gluten free, organic and allergy-friendly bars that have two to nine ingredients, mostly of fruit such as dates, nuts such as almonds or peanuts, and other delicious goodies such as cinnamon, chocolate, or coconut depending on the flavor. No Stevia, no sucralose, no shizzle. (Ummmm some bars have at least twenty. No bueno for them!) Plus LÄRABARs are pretty inexpensive where you can find them!
One of my favorite LÄRABAR flavors is–obviously–the peanut butter chocolate chip bar! A few of my other faves are coconut cream pie, chocolate chip cookie dough,cashew cookie and I REALLY want to try their seasonal strawberry shortcake bar. They seriously need to make a “rawnola” line with inspiration from their renola bars!
It depends on the bar you get, but this one is 220 calories (110 from fat), 11 grams of healthy fat (3 being saturated, 5 being monounsaturated and 2 being polyunsaturated), 26 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fiber, 19 grams of sugar and 3 grams of protein. Bad news is that it is high in carbs, sugars and fat but note that these are all natural, completely organic and wholesome ingredients. No fiber powders, binding agents, artificial sugars or weird chemicals here! It is definitely worth the bar, especially before a workout and if you’re raw vegan!
As you can see, the bar is completely made of dates, sea salt and other goodies such as chocolate and peanut butter! When you take it out it has a somewhat crumbly and sticky texture like cookie dough! Mmmmm….and biting into it is even better. You can really taste the gooeyness and sweetness of the dates, crunchiness from the peanuts and richness of the chocolate. Soooooooooo sinful but it really isn’t!
If there had to be one con about this bar, it would be size. I do wish that this bar was a bit bigger, but overall, LÄRABARs are one of my favorite snack brands to enjoy! With all of my favorite flavors and fruits, it’s a definite must. There are also different types of bars such as Uber, ALT, Renola and Jocalat.
You can find them on their website and social media down below! Please get some bars for yourself–and thank me later 😉
