Larabars: Pure, Simple, Gluten-Free Goodness

Key Lime Pie Larabar

Key Lime Pie Larabar

Most days of the week, most hours of the day, I would tell you that living gluten-free is not hard.  It would be a far stretch to say that it is easy, but it is not nearly as difficult as I imagined it to be.  That said, finding tasty, nutritious, minimally processed snack foods can be tough, and doing so has been my most frustrating challenge.  So, when I first discovered Larabar’s Key Lime Pie fruit and nut bars, I was in gluten-free snack heaven.

We have tried quite a few flavors of Larabar over the years, and I have liked them all well enough, but Key Lime Pie is by far my favorite.  All Larabars are made with some combination of fruit, nuts, and spices, and the list of ingredients is always pleasantly short and wholesome.  Key Lime Pie is no exception; it’s the perfect combination of dates, cashews, almonds, unsweetened coconut, and lime juice concentrate.  The smooth texture of this Larabar exceeds any other I have tried, and I love the subtle, but not overpowering, lime flavor.  No lip-puckering here.  I dare say even coconut haters will like this bar.  It’s just that good.

Larabar offers a wide variety of flavors, and there are a few I am anxious to try.  Banana Bread, Cinnamon Roll, and Ginger Snap sound especially gluten-freelicious.  What is your favorite Larabar flavor?
