Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabar

I’m almost always up for anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate. And when it’s gluten free, AND made with minimal ingredients? SIGN ME UP!

When I opened up the bar, it has a faint smell of a chocolate brownie. Upon first bite, I thought, where’s the peanut butter?! For some reason, I was expecting a chocolate flavored bar with peanut butter chips (which is totally NOT what the name says…just my mind playing tricks on me I suppose (;

But, of course, this was not the case. As I continued to eat it, the subtle flavor of the peanut butter became more prominent. This was actually REALLY tasty! A good chocolate-y flavor, and not so fruity where it’s tart, but rather a subtle fruity flavor.  The flavor of the peanuts shined through as well, especially after a few bites. It was kind of like a fudgy brownie with peanuts in it! The bar itself was moist, chewy and dense, but in a good way.

Overall, pretty yummy.I do slightly wish there was peanut butter chips, but  that’s just my love (read obsession) with peanut butter. It is a tad high in calories given it’s rather small size, but so chock full of goodness that it’s worth the splurge. I’m just going to have to contain myself as to not eat 2 in one sitting  (; 4 stars

I managed to snap a photo before I finished it all (almost forgot- oops!!)

1 bar (45 grams) is 230 calories, 12 grams of fat (3.5 saturated), 26 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 19 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of protein.

  • I love these! the brownie larabars just aren’t near as good. I used to love the frozen snickers bars as a youngster but now I’m into frozen bananas with some chocolate action (as a second to larabar being my favorite)

    frozen bananas are amazing!! who knew fruit could be so decadent? (;

  • Kimberley says:

    I love these ones, I tried it for my first time a couple weeks ago!

  • Ashley says:

    I didn’t like the two or three larabars I’ve tried. I think the dates just ruin it for me. I’ve been eyeing the chocolate peanut butter to try but I’m just to scared. The ones I tried were pb&j and chocolate chip.
    My favorite peanutbutter and chocolate combo would have to be reese’s eggs. Haha. Most of the time when I want something sweet, I’ll spoon out a serving of pb and stir in some dark chocolate chips.

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    @Ashley- I think the same thing sometimes with the fruit based bars. This one, however, I didn’t really taste too much of the fruit! I’d say its worth a try. let me know if you like it!

  • Meagan says:

    If you put this in the fridge for a few hours before eating it, it tastes so good!

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    fridge sounds like a good idea! I found that Luna Bars in the fridge are also pretty good!! 🙂

  • This is my FAVE flavor of Larabars, though I still want to try the Blueberry Muffin and can’t find it anywhere!!! I like Larabars so much because they are a satisfying snack, but also cure a sweet tooth 🙂

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    yea! and you also get an extra fruit serving which never hurt anyone 😉
