Larabar ALT

May 16, 2013

in product review, vegan

What’s that in the breakfast background???



Samples from Larabar of their newest product – ALT – made from pea protein.


I split the Peanut Butter Cookie + Pumpkin Pie flavors with Abe…



…for the most part, the flavor is the same as their other bars, but the texture isn’t. No chalky aftertaste like brands with whey protein, but the firmness and chew are completely different.


I preferred the PB – my husband, unfortunately, was not a fan. He usually loves their regular bars, but took a bite of both and gave up. I just ate his halves in the car.

I’ve heard about these, and I’m so curious! Are they available to the public yet? I haven’t seen them at stores here, but we might just be a bit behind :-)

So interested in trying these! I had no idea that pea protein was a thing!

I’m not vegan but I use pea protein powder in my smoothies and overnight oats. I get enough dairy that I figure an alternative is good. I like Olympian Labs vanilla flavor. It’s tasty!

I have to say, I’m with Abe, although I liked the Pumpkin Pie flavor. The Lemon was so weird, I didn’t have more than a bite…
