Looking for a sweet and healthy snack idea? Try the Pecan Pie bar from Lara Bar! Why do I like this bar? It's simple, tasty, natural and healthy with only three ingredients (dates, almonds and pecans)! I love products that are made of whole, natural ingredients and you won't do much better than this. A healthy source of carbs for energy (from the dates), healthy fats (from the nuts), and fiber (from the dates and nuts), this bar has balance. Protein is on the lower side at 3 grams, but this bar isn't trying to be a high protein bar, and the nuts help to keep you satisfied like a protein bar would. Lastly, this bar is moderate in calories (220) which will help keep you satisfied between meals, but not too full. Whether you choose to have a handful of nuts with a fruit or grab this bar instead, either would be a great choice for a snack!
Disclosure: I have never received compensation from the Lara Bar company.
Yours in great health!
