We’re a family of three but we all have different choices.
I’m a chocolate girl all the way and my favorite larabar is by far the Chocolate Chip Brownie Bar followed shortly by Chocolate Coconut Bars.
Hubby is a peanut butter addict (I swear he could live on peanut butter sandwiches) so his favorite larabar is Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar and Peanut Butter Cookie Bar.
And my little lady bug is in between. She loves all kind of bars as long as they don’t have big pieces of nuts in them.
I’ve made a while back another version of the Chocolate Coconut Larabar which I ended up eating almost all all by myself (no, no, no I wasn’t complaining)
This time I switched things a little bit and chopped the nuts a little smaller so my little lady bug could snack on them during the day. The bars are gluten free, vegan with no added sugar.
If you prefer a bar that has bigger nut pieces add the almonds and walnuts at the end and pulse just until the nuts are chopped the desired size.
Today is the last day of our pink week.
