Chocolate Peppermint Larabars
If you are not familiar with larabars, let me introduce them to you. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and scrumptious. They taste like cookies because the dates make them sweet combined with super foods like cocoa and almonds. Basically, you get dessert, without the guilt. I eat them in between meals to tide me over. No more of those processed full of sugar granola bars. Eat healthy and wholesome.
I developed this bar for Christmas. They taste like a thin mint cookie from the girl scouts. Suitable for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, or dessert. Enjoy!
