Larabars are one of the original “simple ingredient and vegan” food bars. We can’t really call these a protein bar, although Larabar does make those now.
These are solid food bars. The main ingredient tends heavily to be dates.
You know dates.. the somewhat sticky and moisture-less fruit with a seed in it. Larabars and raw/vegan pie crusts are generally the only way that I’ll eat dates. On their own, they are not my style. In desserts and natural smoothies, I can get down with them all day.
Larabars also have some kind of nuts in them as well. Usually cashews or almonds. Sometimes walnuts if we’re lucky!
Today, let’s talk about two different and tasty? flavors of Larabar!
First, the Carrot Cake.
There are real carrots in these and it’s in a good way. Carrots, being already naturally sweet, add depth to the dates that are also used.
the texture of these bars are soft, too. Softer than usual maybe. It’s all in a good way though.
The Blueberry Muffin was a little more interesting, texture wise. The almonds used added a crunch to the bars.
This blueberry bar was also more.. dry? than the carrot cake. It’s not that it was crumbly, but there was a lack of moisture.
And, that’s what makes the difference as far as which one I am likely to re-purchase again.
Because flavor-wise, they are both delicious. I enjoyed both and I’d eat either one again.
But if I had to choose, I’d go with the carrot cake flavor.
I mean, I really like carrot cake. And the texture is more like what actual carrot cake is, moist and dessert level sweetness.
The blueberry muffin bars were tasty but as far as my understanding goes, I don’t recall there being chunks of almonds in a baked muffin.
Anyway, as a side note I’d like to give a shout out to my all time favorite Larabar flavor – Pineapple Upside Down Cake! Yummm, too back they’re not sold or available anywhere near me.
Anyway, thanks for reading!
