Of all the vegan products out there, it is Larabars that I have always heard talked about in vlogs and on blogs. If you’re unfamilar with them, the entire range of Larabars consists of 20 bars (plus an additional 3 seasonal bars) which are all vegan and contain 9 or less ingredients.
Real foods are used to create Larabars which is the reason behind such short ingredient lists. When comparing Larabars to other non-vegan competitors, you’ll see why so many people choose to eat them. They’re not just vegan-friendly, but are also free from eggs, dairy, soy and gluten.
Despite never having tried a Larabar, I set myself the challenge to recreate each flavour. However, it’s not just about the recipes, I’ve focused on how much money you can save by making your own at home. The aim for every post in this Vegan On A Budget series is to show you ways to save – and quite significant savings can be made by creating your own Larabars at home. While Larabars are not that expensive compared to some other companies, these homemade bars are anywhere from 50-75% cheaper. That’s great news for your bank balance!
All of these bars have similar nutritional information to actual Larabars. After hours of research on Cronometer, I believe I have similar ingredient ratios to those used to create each Larabar flavour. They honestly take mere minutes to make, which is hardly any time out of your day so it’s well worth giving it a go.
