LÄRABAR ALT Protein Bars (Review & Giveaway)



The good folks at LÄRABAR  graciously sent me a sample pack of four of their newest nutritional bars. They've let me review their other products in the past and each time I've not been disappointed. This company does a really good job of creating nutritionally sound snack bars from wholesome, naturally occurring ingredients.

All LÄRABAR products are non-GMO. The new ALT bars use an alternative protein source: peas. Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and non-GMO. They give you 10 grams of protein per bar.  Let's see what they sent me to try this time....
  • Lemon Pound Cake
  • Peanut Butter Cookie
  • Cinnamon Apple Crisp
  • Pumpkin Pie

Now I fully expected to open the Lemon Pound Cake bar and have it resemble cake and to open the Peanut Butter Cookie bar and have it look and taste somewhat like a peanut butter cookie. Not so!  All four of these bars resemble each other (see the picture of bar cubes on saucer).  They are made of fruit, peanuts, peas. They are all brownish, have small peanut pieces, almonds, pea protein, and fruit (apples, dates, lemons, or pumpkin).

Each bar is very good. I found I enjoyed the Pumpkin Pie as #1 and the Cinnamon Apple Crisp as #2. But all were good. 

You know, I think it would be interesting to serve these as "finger food" at a gathering.  Just snag a bunch of them (choose the flavors you like best), cut them into little pieces (maybe 1/4 or 1/6 bar per piece), arrange them on a plate and see how your guests like them. You'll be doing them a favor. It will be an easy "prep" for you. And who knows how much small talk they'll create for your gathering.

Again, LÄRABAR has graciously offered to give one of Chat With Vera's  readers the same 4-bar sample pack of ALT bars! (Sometimes Rafflecopter is slow to load, be patient please.)
