I love LÄRABARS
I love them in an obsessive sort of way.
I love them in a way that is bordering on unseemly.
I love them because they are made with a minimal number of real ingredients with…
- no sweeteners,
- no fillers,
- no supplements,
- no flavorings or
- no preservatives
LÄRABARS are 100% real food.
But, more than all of that, I love how LÄRABARS taste.
Problem is, LÄRABARS ain’t cheap.
For example, one of my clients uses LÄRABARS to fuel her Health Habits workouts. And at $2.50 per bar x 2 bars per workout x 5 workouts per week, that means she spends $25 per week on LÄRABARS. If we assume that she takes two weeks off from her workout schedule per year, that means she spends $25 x 50 weeks = $1250 per year on LÄRABARS.
Which she would be okay with. Unfortunately, her husband isn’t.
So, to maintain connubial bliss, my client and I went online in search of homemade LÄRABAR recipes.
Here’s what we found:
- The Inner Gourmet makes a mean Cashew Cookie Larabar
