I have been on the look out for a paleo bar. Most bars have some sort of grain, but today I discovered Larabars! They are made with only 3 ingredients: fruit, nuts, and spices. How cool is that?! In this day and age, the ingredient lists stretch on and on - and I don't even know what half of these ingredients consist of or how to pronounce them. So I was extra excited to finally find a paleo friendly bar! These bars would also be good for someone who has celiac disease and is following a gluten free diet.
I saw they were sold at Whole Foods so I popped over there after work. I was planning on just buying 1 or 2, but once I saw all the different delicious flavors - I ended up buying 7! Clearly, I am a bit of an impulse buyer and I haven't had sweets in a while...and by a while I mean a hot second because I have a sweet tooth problem. But with flavors like: Apple Pie, Banana Bread, and Blueberry Muffin just to name a few at under 200 calories - I really couldn't resist. Once I came home, they all sounded so tasty I wanted to open up all 7 bars and take a nibble out of each one immediately. BUT, my practical side told me to exercise some restaint and try one at a time. I tried the Apple Pie tonight and was pleasantly suprised. It does really taste like wholesome apple pie. I have a feeling I will be keeping these bars handy whenever my sweet tooth kicks in. With no added sugar, and 3 natural ingredients - I am sure I will have to start buying these in bulk soon. If you do buy a box of them, they are 10% off at Whole Foods (who doesn't like saving a buck or two :)) They also have other mouth watering flavors - you can see a list of all of them on their website: http://www.larabarstore.com/products/larabar. Once I try the other flavors, I will be sure to update you on which one takes the cake!
