Larabar Introduces ALT – New Protein Bars

Larabar was one of the first bars I tried once I started the gluten-free diet 7 years ago.  I often still keep them in my purse for emergency snack purposes, though I have always wished they had more protein.  Guess what?  Wishes do come true!  Larabar just introduced four new bars with added protein!

The four flavors are:

Cinnamon Apple Crisp – Dates, pea protein, peanuts, brown rice syrup, brown rice flour, dried apples, sunflower oil, cinnamon, natural flavor

Lemon Pound Cake – Dates, almonds, pea protein, brown rice syrup, brown rice flour, sunflower oil, lemon juice concentrate, vanilla extract, natural flavor

Peanut Butter Cookie – Dates, peanuts, pea protein, brown rice syrup, brown rice flour, sunflower oil

Pumpkin Pie – Dates, pea protein, peanuts, brown rice syrup, brown rice flour, dried pumpkin, sunflower oil, spice

Each ALT bar has 10 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and between 210 –240 calories.  The bars are dairy-free, non-gmo, kosher and vegan in addition to being gluten-free.  I am excited to find and sample these new flavors as a post-workout refueling snack!  I just have to decide which flavor I am going to try first – they all sound so good!  Like the other bars in the Larabar line, these should be great for carrying in your purse, backpack, gym bag or glove box.

Which of the new ALT bars would you like to try first?  Which Larabar is currently your favorite?

    Just tried the Lemon Pound Cake and love it! It’s not too sweet, not overly dry and has an appealing flavor. I also like the carb/protein ratio. The challenge is to find where I can buy more. I bought one on a whim at a store that I can’t get to frequently and so far have not been able to find it online. Please let me know if you find a place to buy online. I’d love to get more!
