New Larabar Flavors Review
Larabars are one of, if not THE, healthiest bars on the market. They’re vegan, and made with whole foods, like nuts, seeds and fruit. The problem is that they are low in protein and some flavors, like peanut butter, are dry and taste “healthy.” My favorites are Lemon (best cold, in the refrigerator) and Peanut Butter and Jelly (which is hard to find). My least favorites are Apple Pie and Cherry Pie, which don’t taste anything like pie. I am a sucker for new stuff and their new flavors sounded delicious, so I had to buy them.
The four new flavors I tried were Limited Edition Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl, which was dry and bitter and the little chocolate chips dropped on the floor as I took a bite (wah); Coconut Cream Pie, very sweet, but perfect when I crave candy; Banana Chocolate Chip, which tastes like a gluten-free, dry banana bread made without sugar, sprinkled in with a few tiny chocolate chips; and Pecan Pie, which has the perfect combination of cinnamon spice and crumble.
P.S. I have numerous healthy vegan desserts in my cookbook, Slimming Dairy-Free Desserts & Smoothies. Check out my Coconut-Oat Bars with chocolate chips and walnuts. The recipe is on page 44 and each bar is only 140 calories.
