Fiendish Find: Peanut Butter and Jelly LÄRABAR


I JUST tried LÄRABAR's PB&J bar and I think I'm in love!

I hadn't really tried too many flavors of LÄRABAR, but when I was shopping at Mother's Market the other day I saw they had a bunch of different flavors, so I decided to expand my repertoire. Wow, am I ever glad I did!

Not only are LÄRABARS gluten free, dairy free, soy free, non-GMO, vegan AND kosher, but they are made with less than eight ingredients (just nuts, fruits and spices) and taste delicious!

According to their site:
LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices - energy in its purest form. Made from 100% whole food, each flavor contains no more than eight ingredients. Pure and simple, just as nature intended.

Sweet with no added sweeteners. Sustaining with no added fillers, supplements or flavorings. LÄRABAR is what your body needs - real, whole food loaded with nature's own minerals and vitamins.

All of the vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, good carbohydrates and healthy fats are derived exclusively from the whole food used to make LÄRABAR.

For LÄRABAR, we source the best possible ingredients. Every time. Every bar. Enjoy.
My favorite, go-to bar before PB&J had been their apple pie bar. Their apple pie bar is phenomenal, just like all their other flavors. It's amazing with how just a few ingredients they can make a bar taste exactly like what it is named after! I recently tried the key lime pie bar and was amazed by its tangy and sweet flavor! I'm also a BIG fan of their banana bread bar! Mmmmm! No matter how tasty these other bars are, I'll admit that my heart belongs completely to the new peanut butter and jelly bar!

The ingredients are listed as dates, peanuts, unsweetened cherries and salt. The result is a nostalgic experience that will take you back to your childhood! It's uncanny how much it tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! LÄRABAR's website describes it perfectly:
One bite will bring you back to PB&J's with the crust cut off, just like mom used to make! We took our classic Peanut Butter Cookie bar and combined it with the best of Cherry Pie. Made with only 4 simple ingredients, LÄRABAR PB&J will stir up happy childhood memories!
Just thinking about it is making me drool!

Now, for an energy/breakfast bar I've heard many people complain about the high fat/calorie numbers contained in LÄRABARS. However, since they are made from simple, pure ingredients like fruits and nuts, these seemingly high levels of fat and calories actually are GOOD for you. (Ya, that's right, do your happy dance!) There is also a lot of fiber in the small bars as well, ensuring you stay full longer and have prolonged energy.

I've been eating one every weekday for a mid-morning snack and they fill me up until lunch time. Plus, despite their small size, they definitely pack a lot of satisfaction and nutrition. And they are soooooo delectable! I like to savor mine in the morning and eat a little bit at a time. However, since they are so darn tasty it is hard to control myself sometimes!

I love all their flavors, but their new PB&J flavor definitely has found a special place in my heart!
