Sentimental Diabetic Drivel... Documenting life of a T1 athlete

Awhile ago I wrote about how much I love Lara bars. With the handful of ingredients, whole foods, low carb, gluten-free AND delicious, I couldn't help it. I have another bar to introduce to you. I've been buying these guys for awhile now too but took for granted how fantastic they are. I love these just about as much as I love Lara bars.
I knew they were gluten-free because it says so right on the package. They are very much like Lara bars with a few extra ingredients. The ingredients are ALL recognizable. Unlike Lara bars which are sweetened with dates, these KIND bars are usually sweetened with honey. They are like a handful of trail mix mixed with honey and shaped into a rectangle. You can see whole almonds in there. Seriously, it's so simple I wonder why I don't make them at home. Probably because the convenient packaging and laziness. I haven't tried them all, they are sometimes hard to find here and often you can only find a handful of flavours. Every one I've tried though I've loved. They, too, are also low carb in around 20-25g carbs. Some of them have a decent amount of fibre also. My favourite that I've tried so far is the Walnut & Date. I use them like I use Lara bars. Often before a workout or any other time I need a snack on the go.
