I don’t recommend packaged food often, but this fruit and nut bar can barely be considered packaged. It has no added sugar, no fake sweeteners, no preservatives, no weird colors or additive. The Larabar is basically a medley of fruits, nuts and/or vegetables and maybe a pinch of sea salt. Did I mention it is absolutely delicious?
I haven’t tried all of the flavors, but the Peanut Butter “Cookie” is my favorite thus far. It has made from dates, peanuts and sea salts. You read that right. Three ingredients. Absolutely nothing else! It’s no cookie, but it is a naturally sweet and savory snack.
A 16 count of Larabar can be purchased on larabarstore.com for a little over $25. It’s a little pricey, but that is a good price for natural food and convenience nowadays. Alternatively, you can make your own bar with dates and whichever nut or veggie/fruit you like, but I think I would gladly pay for a few packaged bars to keep around. I’m not big on eating snack bars, but the Larabar is one I am very glad to keep around, even on any restricted diet.
A Larabar is approximately 200 calories. It is a great workout snack or just something to have in your bag for the hungry days. I keep one in my gym bag for added energy in a hurry.
