Homemade Lemon Larabars - These bars are vegan, sweet, tangy, and so easy to make yourself at home. The perfect way to boost your energy naturally.
So this year I decided that I wanted to collaborate more with other bloggers and content creators so when Stephanie Spring reached out to me to partner with her I was very excited. Stephanie is a fellow Stonyfield Blogger with me over at the Clean Plate Club, but she also has an amazing blog that shares delicious recipes that are healthy, seasonal, and good for you. Her photography is beautiful and it really makes you want to give all of her recipes a try.
Speaking of trying out her recipes…I will actually be giving her recipe for Lemon Larabars a try and sharing those with you today.
If you have never heard of Larabars, they are a brand of healthy fruit and nut energy bars that are minimally processed. The Lemon Larabars are both tangy and sweet and making them yourself at home is so unbelievably easy. I actually had all of the items on hand and it was a great way to use up some of the ingredients that were already in my pantry. I love making recipes that do not require me to have to make a trip to the grocery store.
These bars require no cooking or oven time whatsoever and I enjoy making raw treats because they are 1) sweet, 2) contain much less processed sugar, and 3) I don’t feel guilty about indulging in them. Will I be making this recipe again, absolutely, will I be eating way too many of these today, probably so.
Be sure to head over to Stephanie Spring to leave a comment to let Stephanie know that you are stopping by from Simply LaKita.
