Larabar Gluten Free Fruit & Nut Food Bars address the difficulty of finding healthy, simple food while looking for gluten free snacks. Each bar in their gluten free line is made with unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices with less than 9 ingredients per bar.
Larabar Gluten Free Fruit & Nut Food Bar, Blueberry Muffin variety has only 6 ingredients: Dates, cashews, unsweetened blueberries, blueberry juice concentrate, lemon juice concentrate, and vanilla extract.
Each bar contains a half cup serving of fruit making them a good addition to busy schedules and meal times when things like fresh fruits and veggies are hard to work in. It also a lot easier to store in the car, in a purse or backpack, unlike fresh fruit that can tend to get smashed and often requires the extra step of washing before eating.
Along with being gluten free this bar can also satisfy the needs of those who eat vegan and/or kosher. There is also NO soy or dairy. At 190 calories and no added sugar (only that which occurs naturally in the ingredients used), it can make a far healthier convenience snack than most things you grab before your morning commute.

What a quick morning meal or midday snack that tastes like oatmeal and a blueberry muffin got baked together in holy gastronomy? Then Larabar Gluten Free Fruit & Nut Food Bar, Blueberry Muffin might be the bar for you.
While the reviews were largely positive, it should be taken into consideration that these don’t have added sugar which makes some flavors sourer than some consumers would like. Blueberry seems to hold up well and be sweet enough for most though.
As one avid Larabar lover commented of the blueberry muffin variety “Oh, I think I’ve found a new favorite! This bar has a wonderfully rich blueberry flavor without being too sweet and it reminds me of a Blueberry Oatmeal Muffin.”
Other reviewers described the texture as soft and chewy with pieces of nuts throughout. Most of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together to create the soft bar but with a little bit of texture from random pieces of nuts. Another commenter even said that this particular flavor is good for a paleo diet and anyone on the diet knows it can be difficult finding appropriate snacks.
