This is one of the greatest companies that provides paleo-friendly and gluten-free bars in a simple and yummy way!  LARABARs fame has spread all across the Paleo "Blogosphere", but they seem to be a huge favorite everywhere I go!

Yeah, they have just a few. : )  But that is not all they offer!

The LARABAR uber was one of the ones I was super interested in because of it's simple and wholesome ingredients.  Perfect to have on hand during the holidays as many of us find ourselves traveling long hours, or for those long work days, after a workout, for sports trips, and also great for hungry kids!

Below is some great information about the care LARABAR dedicates to providing products for people on special diets that many of us (me included) must stick to very strictly to feel OK.  For those who have to (or chose to) follow such diets, it can be really difficult to take the great portable (but smelly) sardines for a car snack (although those would be a great, "superfood" choice). It is so nice to have something that looks normal and tasty...these bars can go a long way to making someone on a special diet feel more "normal".

"GLUTEN FREE/CELIACS LÄRABAR®, über®, Jŏcalat®, and ALT® bars are Gluten Free. They have no gluten-containing ingredients, and we have manufacturing controls in place to ensure that there are no cross-contact concerns. We also periodically verify our practices using Gliadin gluten testing.

MORE INFORMATION ON GLUTEN FREE

KOSHER  All LÄRABAR products are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union (symbolized by the "U" within a circle). Because both our chocolate chip flavors and our über® bars are produced in a facility that also produces chocolate containing dairy, they are classified as Kosher Dairy (symbolized by the "U" within a circle, followed by a "D").

LOW CARBOHYDRATE DIETS  LÄRABAR products contain 23-32 grams of carbohydrates per bar.

COMPLETE NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION ON INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTS

NUT ALLERGIES  We make the following products that contain peanuts: LÄRABAR Peanut Butter Cookie, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip; über Roasted Nut Roll; and ALT Peanut Butter Cookie. If you have questions regarding specific nut allergies, please call 800-543-2147.

RAW DIET  Many raw foodists enjoy our products as part of their diet.  However, because there is no consistent definition for what can be labeled as “raw,” we have chosen to take the word raw off our label.  LÄRABAR products are made by a simple process in which fruit, nuts, and spices are ground and mixed together. They are not baked or cooked. We use simple ingredients, as close to their natural state as possible.  Practitioners of the Raw Diet should be aware that to ensure the safety of our products some of our nut ingredients are steamed or roasted and our few juice concentrates are pasteurized.

VEGAN/VEGETARIAN  LÄRABAR, Jŏcalat, and ALT are made entirely from plant-based foods. Though the vast majority of chocolate chips in the world are made with dairy, soy or both, we specifically asked our supplier to provide us with chocolate chips which are Vegan—containing no dairy. While no dairy products are used to make our chocolate chips, they are made on a line which also produces chocolate chips made with dairy products.  Due to the potential for cross-contact between the types of chocolate chips made at the facility, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of dairy from those other chips; thus we cannot claim that our chocolate chip flavor varieties are Vegan.

Due to the use of honey, über is not certified as Vegan.

SOY  With the exception of our chocolate chip varieties, LÄRABAR bars do not contain soy or soy derivatives.  We do not claim soy-free on the flavors containing chocolate chips because our chocolate chips are made on a line which also produces chips made with soy.  Due to possible cross-contact, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of soy from other chips made at the facility."-larabar.com


LÄRABAR über® is a unique sweet and salty snack made from whole fruits and nuts. It’s big texture with big taste!

That's not all though...here is a new another great bar type:

Jocalat

Jŏcalat® is an organic chocolate food bar made from fruits, nuts and Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate. Each flavor contains no more than seven simple, organic ingredients that are deliciously rich, without added sugars, and free of dairy, soy, and gluten.

You can't find all these great choices at your local store though, so check out their website to order some today!

Needing some more protein?  Allergic/Intolerant to dairy as I am?  These protein bars are for you!  As a runner, I am constantly reading about how important healthy protein is.  These bars can go a long way in helping you get enough protein when adequate sources are scarce.  These bars would be a great post-race treat to help recharge those muscles. 

ALT®, the Alternative Protein Bar™, is the first-ever bar with added protein from LÄRABAR! Many bar brands use soy or whey protein, but ALT uses an alternative protein source: peas. Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and non-GMO.
  • Cinnamon Apple Crisp
  • Lemon Pound Cake
  • Peanut Butter Cookie
  • Pumpkin Pie
