There isn’t anything more that I love than being able to grab or pack a fruit and nut bar on my way out the door knowing that I’ll be able to consume some extra nutrients throughout my day! Being as conscious as I am about artificial flavoring + coloring, unwanted sugars and too many products within processed foods, I’ve recently discovered these deliciously simple + minimally processed bars that are made solely from (with no more than N I N E ingredients) whole foods + unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices! Non-GMO, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, cholesterol free, vegan + kosher. IS THIS R E A L LIFE? Not to mention that one bar contains a ½ cup of fruit, low sodium and naturally provides the body with the most sought after fats: polyunsaturated + monounsaturated. H e a v e n. The LÄRABAR are pure, simple and delicious 100% real food heaven.
These bars are made entirely from plant-based foods and was inspired during a hike in the Rocky mountains, a 10,000-foot mastermind idea, all the way back in the Spring of 2000. The first 500 LÄRABAR’s were completed by hand + finally hit shelves in April of 2003 and production has not stopped since!
There are a other versions of the original LÄRABAR as well, take a look:
LÄRABAR ÜBER: the crunchy nut bar—gluten free and non-GMO.
LÄRABAR ALT: the “protein” bar (uses an alternative protein source: peas)—gluten free, dairy free, and non-GMO.
LÄRABAR RENOLA: the trail mix/granola "like" bar—grain free + gluten free!
JOCALAT: the organic chocolate food bar—no added sugars, dairy free, gluten free, and soy free.
I typically buy my LÄRABAR’s at Target not only because I am totally obsessed with Target but primarily, this is the first place I've found actual boxes of them at. I can find LÄRABAR’s at Whole Foods or even a few select local grocery stores sole by bar but I love to buy these in bulk (they don’t last too long on my shelves) so I tend to stock up and will usually buy 3—4 boxes each time I find my way lingering down the “protein” section while at Target. My top 3 favorite flavors: peanut butter cookie, coconut cream pie, and apple pie! #addicted #number1fan #LÄRABARalwaysinmypantry
