LARABAR review & giveaway!

I'm always on the lookout for delicious, healthy snacks. Which was why I jumped at the chance to work with...


After reading Jillian Michael's Master Your Metabolism, I learned how important it was to eat clean whole foods that are unprocessed, and worked at applying that to my diet. The great thing about LARABARS, is that they are unprocessed fruits, nuts, and spices that are ground and mixed together. 

What else do I love?

They are not baked or cooked. 

They are Gluten free, and all varieties without chocolate chips are Vegan.

They have no added vitamins, minerals or supplements. Only what the ingredients themselves contain.

There is no added sugar.

They will not freeze or melt.

I like to have half a bar as a pre-workout snack in the morning, or as an afternoon snack. I was fortunate to try a few fabulous flavors. Here they are in order of my favorites...

1. Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte


Simply dates, dairy free chocolate chips, almonds, unsweetened cherries, cashews & sea salt.
This is by far my favorite bar I tried. The tart flavor is amazing, and I love the chocolate chips inside.

2. Cappuccino
contains fair trade coffee, dates, almonds, cashews, & vanilla extract.
These bars provide a little zing of caffeine, and taste fabulous.

3. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
contains dates, peanuts, dairy free chocolate chips, and sea salts.
Good peanut flavor with yummy chocolate. Isn't this a favorite combination for everyone?

4. Carrot Cake
dates, almonds, walnuts, raisins, pineapple, unsweetened coconut, carrots, cinnamon, and extra virgin coconut oil.
All that was missing was a cream cheese frosting. Delicious.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
cashews, dates, dairy free chocolate chips, and sea salt.
Not my favorite, but still a tasty option. I just didn't find it close enough to 'real' cookie dough.

Look at those ingredient lists.

simple. natural. whole foods.
Easier for our body to use as fuel.
Lara is a genius for creating these amazing bars with so few ingredients. I'm honestly amazed at how it all comes together to form the bar so well.

I want you to be able to snack & fuel smarter too, so LARABAR has offered a sampler pack to one lucky reader!

I seriously can't just name a few flavors I want to try - I want to try them all (except any mocha or capaccino - no thanks). I have had several awesome bars - like chocolate chip brownie is my favorite and cherry pie is a close second. There aren't many flavors available in my area so I would love to try them all!!!
