I love the taste and simplicity of Larabars, but I've never been able to eat them--most are sweetened with dates, and they're glycemic index is over the moon! Zzzzzzzz. No sugar for me!
I read on the interwebs (here and here) that they're now owned by General Mills..and although they still claim they're GMO-free, their parent company supports the effort to keep GMO labeling off their products...so no General Mills products in my house! I even gave up my beloved Smuckers peanut butter for the same reason. *pout*
In comes experiment time! I've seen lots of "Larabar" type recipes floating around the interwebs lately, so I decided to try my own.
This isn't a recipe--you can easily find those elsewhere. I just wanted to share that they're pretty easy to make and you can make them without dates. I ended up sweetening mine with Stevia and using just a bit of water or cream to make them stick together. I drink tart cherry juice at night (for inflammation) and that works great too.
FUN EXPERIMENTATION TIME.
I hope you try it! Happy mixing!
